Currently working on Plasma Mobile easier to install alongside Plasma Desktop as a package...

Plasma mobile on surface pro 3, on arch linux:

If an application is not adaptive and hence doesn't fit the phone screen under #phosh, #phoc's scale-to-fit could help since some time. With the recent phoc release this can happen at runtime and there's a GUI for that now too:

#UBports #UbuntuTouch #OTA23 #Mobilelinux #Opensource #Lomiri

testing out the new while waiting for the bus. with the new postprocessd "slow" option, produces stunning results for a 5mp sensor.

I didn't brag about it here (yet 😉 ) but I'm extremely proud of my latest life achievement: having been granted a #debian Developer account! 🎉

This is due in no small part to my involvement in the wonderful #mobilelinux community, which I'm proud to be a part of.

Let's keep the FLOSS ball rolling!

phoc 0.21.0~beta1 is now out, improving several aspects of touch gestures in phosh and making scale-to-fit settings apply immediately at runtime. Grab it from #gnomeonmobile #librem5 #phosh #gnome #mobile #gnu #linux

Sound Recorder lets you make notes without writing anything down, just record yourself instead! If you want to test your microphone, record video voice overs or check how silly you sound when trying to explain something, Sound Recorder has you covered. The app gives you the ability to store, sort and playback any recording you make and then export it as a .flac file

You can get the app on Flathub here:

@joeycastillo just unveiled a redesign of The Open Book! Also seems like they just got an account here recently so give them a follow if you are into #OSHW

I just installed the latest Postmarket OS (with Phosh) on a Pinephone and goodness they have come a long way.

The OS is basically usable. Which is amazing on such an underpowered device.

Also, convergence worked for me for the first time :) And yeah, I could easily use this with Helix Editor + git for development work on the go. (Keep in mind my daily dev machine is a 16-core desktop with 64GB RAM. So, no, it’s not the same experience. But is it usable? Heck yes.)
