desktop apps on Manjaro - dawg161 - 06-30-2020


First I want to say thank you for the alpha 5 image- this is a nice implementation of plasma. 

I'm most excited about the pinephone as a convergence device, and I feel like this is one of the most likely projects to realize that goal. I've thus been trying to install desktop apps and had some success and a lot of failure.

I've managed to get xorg-xcalc to work so well it might be my default calculator from now on. I got the simple text editor Leafpad to install and all mouse actions work great, but I can't get the plasma keyboard to input info to it. I can't get Libreoffice to load at all.

Does anyone have any tips and tricks, or is this just a crazy use of the pinephone where it's at right now
