Today my Mobian Pinephone made the German equivalent of a 911 call in order to report old WW II ammunition found in a forest. This might have been the first real call of an to the emergency services? 🥇 🙂 🚓

We are proud that mobian developer kop316 has now gone for a real fork of the unmaintained mmsd and will be trying to get it into Debian. Also @purism will be using his code on the Librem5. It goes both ways! This will hopefully become the basis for The Next Generation of mmsd:

We are experimenting with @dylanvanassche improvments to modemmanager, decreasing wakeuptime on an incoming call to basically instant. Very exciting and promising!

Owning a Pocophone F1 and OnePlus 6 and 6T and not happy with your distro? Mobian to the rescue! We don't do modem or audio yet, but who needs that on a mobile phone? 😜 More in our status update on

A new reference image for the is out. Speaking of new: A blog post outlines the current state of things and gives some status updates.

The Gnome-Control-Center (aka g-c-c, aka "the settings app") is a pretty central piece of mobian. In our unstable distribution we have now upgraded it from 3.36 to 3.38, which fixes a whole bunch of bugs. (the now working wifi-hotspot via GUI is my personal favorite). Thanks to all contributors!

evince 40.0 and megapixels 0.16 have entered mobian unstable and will hopefull soonish trickle down into mobian stable.
Enjoy! Credits to @awai for the packaging and uploading.

phosh 10.2 just entered mobian unstable. It features a screenshot manager, so the print-screen key on an external keyboard or the gnome-screenshot program should be working. credits to @purism for implementing.

The road to the Mobian Community Edition (part 1)

We should have tooted but forgot (too much happening!). Taking stock of the origins and history of the mobian project by our esteemed founder.

unstable on the can do autorotation thanks to @purism 's work. Hint, rotation is a tri-state icon: long press vs short press.

@mobian wrote an interesting recap of the project after one year, and they forgot to toot about it here!

Hat tip to @linmob for mentioning it in their weekly roundup.

If you are running stable mobian on your , an upgrade to phoc and phosh has just been pushed that makes it crash less often. Unstable user have it already been testing for a while.

#phosh 0.10.0 is out 🚀 :

Besides plenty of fixes #phosh can now be a #geoclue agent (so location services can work) and has support for reboot/shutdown dialogs (which are used when e.g. gnome-software wants to reboot or when you shut down the system from the menu).

If you wonder if things are a bit quieter around mobian, the answer might be: yes. With upstream @debian being focused on releasing bullseye and us tracking , integrating new things is a bit harder right now. Once bullseye is released, we will be starting to track bookworm as we explained in

A recent upgrade of plymouth in Debian wants to reset your Mobian boot splash to the standard Debian screen. While that does not hurt, just say "N" (the default choice) when it asks whether you want to change »/etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf« on upgrade. We should have been able to prevent that, but hindsight is a beautiful thing.
