KDE Neon Pinebook remix edition RC image - bshah - 08-22-2018

Hello everyone!

I am excited to announce the KDE Neon Pinebook remix edition release candidate image.

https://dot.kde.org/2018/08/22/kde-plasma-arm-laptop-pinebook

Image includes the,
  • KDE Neon packages for Ubuntu bionic (18.04)
  • KDE Plasma 5.13.4
  • KDE Frameworks 5.49.0
  • Qt 5.11.1
  • Linux kernel 3.10.105-bsp-1.2
Initially username/password is live/live

You can download .img.gz from,

https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebook-remix-nonfree/useredition/20180821-1118/

New image 20180917-1726:

There are several fixes included,
  • Resuming from sleep is fixed
  • Broken audio after resuming from sleep
  • Bluetooth
  • Palm rejection (Disable "touchpad" while typing)
  • Disable/enable speakers when plugging/unplugging headphones
  • Disable accidental zoom invocation when scrolling in firefox
Errata:
  • Lack of real suspend, I believe this is due to choice of driver we are using, and currently turning lid off puts device to sleep and not suspend like mate image.
  • Sleep inverts the brightness control, after waking up from sleep brightness control are inverted.
Looking forward to your feedback in comments section.

[edit Luke]: For those of you looking for detailed instructions, please see this post further on in the thread.

Thanks.

I've added myself to the waiting list since April and i don't get a PINE yet. Sad

I am very curious if the sleep mode and sound works.

Also, there is a known bug in Qt 5.11 that causes KMail messages not displaying at all.

Suspend doesn't work.

There is a chance that 4.19 kernel will bring sleep mode to Pinebooks

I haven't slept for about 24 hours, so that may be the root cause for this, but why are several news sources:
https://news.softpedia.com/news/kde-neon-linux-operating-system-is-now-available-for-pinebook-64-bit-arm-laptops-522368.shtml
https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/08/kde-plasma-pinebook-release?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+d0od+%28OMG%21+Ubuntu%21%29
https://dot.kde.org/2018/08/22/kde-plasma-arm-laptop-pinebook

directing me here for "detailed installation instructions". I'm not seeing anything of the sort. I suspect you need to 'dd' the image to an sdcard, but that's not hinted at here.

Am I missing something? Am I too early? What's going on?

P.S. Kudos to the KDE devs.
