I might try the PKGBUILDs at I
https://gitlab.com/ohfp/pinebookpro-things/ at a later time, but I should stop procrastinating and finish that "Librem 5: Photos" blog post and add a few apps to LINMOBapps.
@linmob The Signal "Desktop" (Electron) maintainers have explicitly said that they consider feature parity with the Android/iOS applications out of scope. While it may be possible to run the Electron client on a small screen, it will still be limited by needing to register from another application and unable to manage contacts. IMO the best way forward for getting Signal working on small screen Linux is writing a new client using the new libsignal-client Rust library: https://github.com/signalapp/libsignal-client/issues/152
@Darth_Invader No, and I did not try at all. I think setting up a signal-to-matrix bridge at home and then use that is the way I am going to explore. It definitely has a negative impact on security as it's no longer truly end2end than, but less stuff running on the PinePhone equals better battery life.
@linmob the best signal-experience i got on the Pinephone so far is a matrix-bridge & Hydrogen as a webapp
@linmob I simply used the ansible playbook by https://www.beeperhq.com/, which you can find here: https://github.com/spantaleev/matrix-docker-ansible-deploy it is *relatively* straight-forward but requires some tinkering if you have anything else but matrix running on your VPS as well
@linmob you can contact me on matrix too, for more detailed instructions that do not fit the 500 char limit here: @jayvii:jayvii.de
