Mobian and Keyboard
#11
Hey, all.

The keyboard case on my PPP works fine in the stock eMMC Manjaro but it doesn't work in Mobian.

I'm running the latest weekly Mobian build (16-Jan-2022) and have done an upgrade and update in the terminal, but still no keyboard functionality in Mobian.

Any suggestions?

TIA!

I received my keyboard a week ago. I am running Mobian Bookworm and have latest up grades. When the pinephone is inserted in the case, the pre-de-encryption works ok but the phone stalls before the login screen appears ( I can't get it appear by swiping upwards even that is sometimes needed with solo phone if boot procedure is slighly extended past screen saver time).
Have you got Mobian to work yet?

I have received my Pine Keyboard but the phone does not work properly with the keyboard. When the phone is solo (running Mobian) it draws about one amp, it decrypts ok, then the login screen appears and I can login after the 4 icons appear ( sometimes I need to swipe up).

When the keyboard is attached I can not start it via the keyboard on switch, but with phone switch it does. the keyboard never draws more than 0.2Amps. The decrypt screen appears, but not always the login screen. When the login screen did appear the last time after a very long wait,multiple presses of the wake up/start button I was able to log in after a few attempts. The phone goes sluggish and hidden password dots appear slowly. Once logged in I touched the terminal app icon, then the screen went black. After a few presses of the wakeup/start button, there appeared a popup box with two notices saying uknown application, screen went blank, I pressed wakeup/start button and I top swiped the shutdown, the popup box re-apeared but only one message of unkown program.
The phone shut down. I removed the phone from the keyboard,put the original back on but the phone would not boot solo. I then removed the back, removed the battery and put it back in, replaced the back and the phone worked.
There seems to be some software or hardware glitch. How do I check the keyboard battery is charging/charged without the phone attached?
