You forgot one thing: docker containers are architecture-dependent, and "godebos/debos" is likely to be x86-64 Wink
Installing qemu-system-x86 would indeed make things work, but it would probably be painfully slow.

You can either check if there's an arm64 docker container for debos, or compile debos from source (which is quite easy iirc)

Might be irrelevant but installing gnome-system-monitor seems to cure the delayed menu freeze I was experiencing on lxde.

Not sure if it adds much to mobian but this power mgt daemon looks interesting - it seems these desktops run the battery down faster but that might just be perception.

Really happy Mobian and the mobian-x-scripts repo exist!



Here is my convergence edition running LXDE

I think desktop lxde or xfce are a better match for mobian than phosh - but then I prefer the idea of a pocketpc rather than a smartphone. Something as simple as displaying more than one application window at once is pretty handy  Smile

Totally agree - with a little tweaking this has the potential of being the all-day-on pocketpc I've always wanted that also happens to make and receive phone calls once in a while.

The full desktop gnome shell works surprisingly well too - here's a quick video of it in action.

Perhaps, a few tweaks and installing to emmc would give an extra boost.

Anbox is surprisingly usable too - just needed 1gb of zram and the android.img from manjaro arm to make it work without crashing.

RE: Mobian other Desktop Environments - nas - 09-13-2020

Noticed this recent video on youtube where the gnome menu is oversized. I had same issue when switching to wayland but setting the below fixed that.

Code:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 1

--

Edit:  Installed gnome-shell 3.38 over a recent mobian-phosh image and it runs pretty smooth on the emmc. Wayland version needs a better keyboard, maybe a gnome extension or squeekboard might be options.

Extra: Noticed account-daemon hogs cpu in this install. A workaround is to disable the serial console so not ideal but it works.

Code:
sudo systemctl disable serial-getty@ttyS0.service

I have installed Mobian + Xfce, but when I start it asks for the username and password, but the keyboard does not appear. Do you know how I have to do it?

Try:

Code:
sudo apt install lightdm onboard
sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf

Then add the below:

Code:
[greeter]
keyboard = onboard -l Phone -t Nightshade
keyboard-position = "100%,center -0;100% 20%"
a11y-states = +keyboard
icon-theme-name = Adwaita
font-name = Sans 14
xft-dpi = 100
hide-user-image = true
user-background = true


Ctrl+x to save and then reboot.
