Bibletime mini is/was a separate initiative to make an android version
similar to bibletime.  As far as I know it's completely separate from
Bibletime and largely inactive. It shows available for Android 2.3, last
release was 5 years ago. but while the interface is designed for touch on
small screens, it doesn't have a linuxOS port... just most of the 2012
phoneOS options at the end of the first smartphone war (symbian, windows
mobile, etc.)

Bibletime desktop has 3 or 4 rows of menus/toolbars at the top of the
screen. Some of them might be disabled, but then the app would be even less
touch friendly... same for the sidebar. It's built for a large screen
format with a mouse pointer. not a touch interface.

Have you tried andbible via anbox?  (is it possible to compile andbible to
run in linux natively or as a java app in linux?)
