RE: debian+phosh running on PinePhone - nas - 02-29-2020

Looks like there is a way to change the default resolution on phosh.

But terminal complains of missing file (linux-libc-dev_5.5.0+pinephone5_arm64.deb) when trying to install packages like gcc.

Edit: Installed a generic linux-libc-dev to build wlr-randr and now the screen resolution can be changed - see quick video demo.

I mean you can install Firefox on DebPhosh via the Sid repo 'sudo apt install firefox-esr' and just follow along the instruction video by Purism (like set Wayland and like --no-remote etc.) and it works just fine. After all this is also using phosh/phoc just like Purism. It's so nice to have all my Firefox sync stuff again. UI is even pretty darn snappy.

I have firefox installed, but the keyboard isn't working and the screen scrolling is very very slow. And if you know a written tutorial how to set wayland and so on, pls let me know. I don't use video tutorials because they are not usable for people which are heard hearing link me.

Wow, real debian on a phone. That's awesome, thanks a-wai!!!

I suggest to include fonts-noto to have less tofu and cjk fonts in.

And I wonder if it possible to somehow use a different OSK than squeekboard with a real japanese input with mozc backend. Guess not since Purism does not support that.

Didn't realize before but Maemo Leste is based on Devuan and supports both Debian and Devuan (the goal is to support both simultaneously)

Thread:
https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=9322

It just has the Maemo interface rather than phosh. But I wonder about combining efforts to port phosh packages over to Maemo and bring over some of the work done in this thread to Maemo? Their FAQ says it's definitely possible, it just takes some work. This thread is an excellent start.

Hey there !

I've uploaded a new release, with a few changes under the hood:
- fixed the DNS issue
- removed gdm and the default "recommended" packages in order to claim back some space
- update the boot script to allow flashing the image to eMMC (untested, but it is based on pmOS's one, so that should work)
- update the default audio settings
- install nemo as the default file manager (mostly works, but clearly not an app designed for phones, as you'll probably notice... Still, a file manager is always nice to have Wink )

I'm digging into the audio side of things now, hoping to make a few improvements to the audio driver (such as proper headphones presence detection), and then I'll get to the audio routing part, in order to make voice calls work.
Well, that's the plan, but you never know what can go wrong, so don't expect much before a week or two, at least Wink

Calls are not working at the moment. In order to get text messages, I strongly suggest that you disable PIN code verification on your SIM card, and it should work Smile
(If you keep PIN code enabled, this can work too, but it's a lot more hassle, such as going to the Settings app to unlock the SIM, and then restart ModemManager -- this is all being worked on, but I can't make any promise as to when this will be fixed)

I'll take your suggestion regarding fonts-noto, thanks!
Unfortunately, for now the only OSK usable with phosh (to my knowledge) is squeekboard, let's just hope someone will contribute a japanese layout soon. Unless someone knows of another option ?
