The sixth edition of my weekly collection of @PINE64 #PinePhone news, Linbits, is out!
Topics include fixed incoming calls, stable libhandy API and more.
@normandc @linmob @MatejLach Heh, all that is needed on the pinephone is something like that in #python: https://paste.gg/p/anonymous/9f46e946bfbc4935a41c9838476bf7a3 (WARNING: Quick hack). It is complete, just missing a few constants that contain logging credentials. I use it to log to @nextcloud 's #phonetrack.
I wrote about the @PINE64 PinePhone! It's been a lot of fun to play with, and I still have more operating systems to try.
we just pushed another alpha build of @kdecommunity #plasma #mobile for the @ManjaroLinuxARM @thepine64 #PinePhone . Looking great already! 😎 https://twitter.com/fkardame/status/1293682896679636993

Confusingly COVID-19 is blamed, but I don't understand how that could be the case unless it directly correlated with losing specific funders. COVID-19 seems like it could also be an opportunity to close unnecessary offices, dramatically reducing costs.

- Vague "pivot to products" talk

As promised, this is the current progress. Again, I've only finished the C++ side, haven't really tweak the UI. I have to finish things on KClock first then this plasmoid so I only start develop plasmoid today. Note that this is intended to be used on #Pinephone, highly appreciate if you have any UI suggestions!
Got something starting to look like a folding #pinephone case here. Need to figure out a keyboard to go in it.
Just dropping this idea here:
For Android there's the #OpenPush project trying to introduce an alternative to googles services, that also includes the possibility to self host the server component or choose a trustworthy provoder.
Basically porting that project to also work on (mobile) linux and promoting it to app-developers.
Ok, I've got a 3d printed part that securely attaches to a #pinephone and replaces the built in back frame. Now, how do I attach a battery cover and a keyboard to it? Hang some barrels off the side and call it a hinge? Magnets? Melt-in nutserts? Help me out here fediverse.
Hi! I am Peter and I run a blog about LINux on MOBile devices – linmob.net. It's mostly about the PinePhone lately.
