The #pinephone paradox 🥴:
With #postmarketos usage battery lasts (on standby) about 4-6 hours because it doesn't go to sleep but can receive calls
With #mobian battery lasts (on standby) 16 hours+ because it goes into "deep sleep" but has trouble waking for calls & SMS.
Temp solution - standby battery to recharge phone every 5 hours!
Sleep really needs looking into 😁

What was it about #Manjaro that upset #Arch?
And why do some people dislike Manjaro?
Seeking to understand, not to stir or antagonize.

I am really pleased with how well Mobian is working on the #pinephone.

Its not perfect but its good to go.

What is not quite good to go, its the surrounding apps. The camera is still a bit glitchy and needs work, but its happening fairly quickly and works good enough for most things.

Mobians firefox tweaks aren’t as good as pmOS’s tweaks, I wish they would just take pmOS’s tweaks. Or, even better, get a webbrowser that’s actually designed for a phone working. The one on mobian kinda works, but its slow painfully slow compared to firefox DESKTOP somehow.. ugh.

The navigation software is terrible and unstable. I need this, unfortunately.

There is just a lot of missing software — being fair, mobile phone (real) linux is brand new and its still in its infancy. There really just aren’t many coders actually making mobile apps yet.

Like, niceties such as fedi software aren’t there yet, not really. There was one but it was just a web thing — pointless.

Complaints aside, this is progressing much faster than I had anticipated.

For me, I need 1) Working navigation, 2) CCDA for pinephone :blobthumbsup:

> Let's talk about safety of #Pinephone
<<... I'm trying to be a bit inflamatory here, to start the conversation. Nevertheless, the above issues are real. It's really just a numbers game. When the distros will not take safety seriously, by planing for it, testing for it, and verifying the mechanisms they are supposed to ensure are in place for the safety of their users, the odds somehting will happen will stay needlessly high.

Also, don't be a person whose house burns down for FOSS. Ask your favorite distribution's authors what they're doing to make their OS safe. Pine64 itself can only go so far to ensure safety of Pinephone, software you put on your Pinephone matters a lot, too!>>

One of the best decisions we've made.

Google banned LBRY Android from the Playstore without warning and for contrived reasons.

This video details their exact communications, reasoning, and hypocrisy.

We believe we are being targeted due to big creators fleeing YouTube for LBRY.

Please share 🙏

Hey ! My next video is going to be about on @ManjaroARM on . If you have questions or app requests, please tell me! (This video is going to be published on a Peertube instance, btw, too.)

This is just to check in how much interest there is in the following:

Would you like to see Tails to run on mobile phones such as the ?
(boost also counts as a yes)

What's Tails?
Tails a portable operating system that protects your privacy and helps you avoid censorship.

Big ❤️ to my unsung heroes:

Busan Shah (sp?) who've done mind boggling things with #PlasmaMobile

@bram and the #Yunohost team for helping to make it easy to get my life off other people's computers.

@cwebber for two revolutions in open social (#activitypub and #spritely)

#Nextcloud for doing the right thing post #ownCloud Anne with #CollaboraOnline.

@PINE64 for so much great private, affordable hardware.

So many more that I ❤️ but can't fit in here!

Y'all ROCK!!


My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

New installs will have gnome-weather preinstalled on their @mobian , existing installs will have to install it manually. Enjoy! Credits go to @awai for making it (kind-of) mobile capable.

Booted #manjaro plasma on the #pinephone. Works ok, looks good. Did update, now boots to manjaro logo & no further. Mouse curser moves too!
Back to plan A!
