Pinned toot

The sixth edition of my weekly collection of @PINE64 news, Linbits, is out!
Topics include fixed incoming calls, stable libhandy API and more.

I was going to make my next @PINE64 video about , but then @ManjaroARM released another @plasmamobile alpha. A long, low produced walkthrough:

@androidpolice picked as their one favorite distro out of 17 for the .
Psst, don't tell anyone.... but it's our favorite one too! 😜

@PINE64 @corbin

@normandc @linmob @MatejLach Heh, all that is needed on the pinephone is something like that in : (WARNING: Quick hack). It is complete, just missing a few constants that contain logging credentials. I use it to log to @nextcloud 's .

we just pushed another alpha build of @kdecommunity #plasma #mobile for the @ManjaroLinuxARM @thepine64 #PinePhone . Looking great already! 😎

Original tweet :

Looks like my next video is going to be (by popular demand) on the current state of on the @PINE64 . I am going to write a post with the details and hope that I can get it to do more than in my earlier attempts on @postmarketOS.

(Will try it on @mobian, too.)

layoffs, mozilla

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.

- This probably means even more browser takeover by chrome
- Vague "pivot to products" talk
- Executive pay keeps going up


Does this mean that the daily #Pinephone images running #Neon and #PlasmaMobile are now running off 20.04, too?

Hey Mastodon, I need your input: I want to make another Video this week. But what should it be about? ? ? or more GTK apps? Or something completely different?

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 , highly appreciate if you have any UI suggestions!

Watching #YouTube videos on the #pinephone? #MPV gives the best performance & quality balance if the correct argument/options are in use
#Mobian #Linux

Just built Angelfish from the AUR on Arch Linux ARM by @danct12. It feels so much faster than Gnome Web on the .

`yay -S plasma-angelfish`

Got something starting to look like a folding #pinephone case here. Need to figure out a keyboard to go in it.

hack of the day. Members KeironO and Djhg2000 created a "renice" script that pushes the priority of the call program in an attempt to make the respond in case of a call. Does it improve things?

Just dropping this idea here:

Developing a framework for push-messaging in linux-on-phone apps (like for @mobian, @purism #librem5, @postmarketOS, @PINE64 #PinePhone, @ubports #UbuntuTouch)

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.
