Got some speedups in the megapixels app for the

This is with the rear camera running at 1080p, it can also do 5MP but that halves the framerate.

I can confirm that with the latest @mobian update the touchpad on the pinetab works flawlessly , amazing work !

It looks like there might be fix for the pinetab touchpad issues see mobian issues here

I love the opensource community,

New Pine Store (WIP pictures) with more payment options (Stripe) being built. We are, however, struggling with crypto payments (@BTCPayServer), since we haven't received a response from
Bitstamp as of today. We won't use Kraken - their form requires disclosure of private info.

I know its not screenshot sunday but I finally had a go at installing Arch , I don't know why I was so put off to begin with.

It's seriously awesome!

The arch wiki is a marvel, literally every problem I had, I found a solution in the wiki .

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

Hello world! This is the mastodon account for , a Debian customized for mobile phones/tablets. Here, we will comment, respond and report on the development. It will also contain quite some redundancy to our content on twitter (I guess). Welcome!

Thanks to the work of Samuel Holland, crust advanced power management is now capable of running the for 100hrs in idle without the modem (approximately 110mW). With modem on, we should get 40% battery run-time increase (to approx 24 hrs).
Coming to your distro of choice soon!

@PINE64 where have you gone ????????
I'm really missing seeing occasional toots from my favourite tech company .

It kept my spirits high during the lockdown reading your posts .
Now I'm just waiting for my pinetab to arrive. Can't wait !!!

Keep up the good work guys 👍

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

Do many of you use ?
I'm looking for a simpler solution to nextcloud .
I've run nextcloud for 4 years but I feel that it does so much that I don't need, that a simpler solution is needed , to just store photos,music and movies and integrate a caldav/cardav sever .
I know I can do this with radicale on the openmediavault server . But I'm interested in people's view of openmediavault .

So my question is after checking distrotube for the second time this year . Should I give manjaro gnome a go?

I have very briefly played with arch before so I'm aware of pacman, but honestly I've only ever really used apt as a package manager .

Is Manjaro something you would recommend?

Hi fosstodonians ,

I need some advice , currently I use Debian 10 Gnome as my laptop distro of choice , I dabbled in mint for a year and liked it also but eventually went back to Debian .

At first I was comforted with the rock solid stability I remember, but then a few hiccups happened mainly with suspend and I remembered why I switched in the past . I remember being a little bored . Don't get me wrong Debian on my servers is brilliant , but on a laptop it left a little to be desired .

So o finished making my sonos- like speaker project using , a raspberry pi and a hifiberry amp2.

I found it to sound the best of all the similar projects and be less bloated in the UI .

Really happy with the look !!!!
