Hello Guys ...

Thank you for the reply

@David Barth
I am using the PPA version of cordova : sudo apt-add-repository ppa:cordova-ubuntu/ppa; and
the new cordova cli 

I've rerun the command with debugging enabled - I've copied what copied what I get after running
the command below:
"root@time:/var/www/html/tester# cordova run ubuntu -d
Executing "before_run"  hook for all plugins.
Executing "before_prepare"  hook for all plugins.
Searching PlatformJson files for differences between project vs. platform installed plugins
No differences found between project and ubuntu platform. Continuing...
Generating config.xml from defaults for platform "ubuntu"
Executing "after_prepare"  hook for all plugins.
Running command: /var/www/html/tester/platforms/ubuntu/cordova/run 
Building Desktop Application...
In order to build debian package, execute: 
cd /var/www/html/tester/platforms/ubuntu/native/com.ubuntu.developer.myid.tester; debuild
Build Successful. Running the application.
Running Cordova
Launching the application.
As you can see it gets stuck on Launching the application - 
 - I'm running this on my desktop (not device)
 - The white window shows up "Launching application", and then just freezes (turning grey
on ubuntu)
I can't seem to get a higher version that 4.3.1 for the cordova-cli :
"root@time:/var/www/html# apt-cache policy cordova-cli
  Installed: 4.3.1-ubuntu3~ubuntu15.10.1
  Candidate: 4.3.1-ubuntu3~ubuntu15.10.1
  Version table:
 *** 4.3.1-ubuntu3~ubuntu15.10.1 0
        500 wily/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
" -  From :

Again ... thank you guys for all the help - please let me know if you need more information
from my side
