Mobian other Desktop Environments
#1
I try to build some other WM or DE, some of you already tried them.
As i build for myself i can push archives for testing, this post is to share the links.
Firefox Send keep the links available for one week or 100 downloads.
Just ask if a link expire.

Let's start with JWM

You can find this work here to build it yourself :

Please do not report issues on the Matrix Channel at the moment, use this thread instead.

I start with bugs Smile
Replace JWM menu links to x- symlinks (x-terminal-emulator..)
I recently changed terminal emulator and forgot to update menu..

I have build the cinnamon version and gave it a little spin

I hope it's okay using the img tag. I didn't want to do it for every image (would make scrolling this thread a pain Tongue )
that's why you can click the links.



Obligatory screenfetch!

Thumbs Up 
Have done a build today with Openbox - this really is exciting and fun. Excellent to see chatty & calls in the base build. Hopefully tint2 is a bit more robust than fbpanel.
I just need to sort a menu system then I am ready, I think, to swap to this for my daily driver.

Thank you, it is great Big Grin

Yes OpenBox is really good.
I have some issue with JWM on wake up after suspend.

Thanks for your post.

I am trying to build on my RockPro64 but run into problems as debos is not available for arm64.

I have installed bmap-tools, debootstrap, qemu-system-arm (figured it would be more useful than -x86!), qemu-user-static, binfmt-support & docker.io. But then I get

Code:
# ./build.sh -d -v openbox
Unable to find image 'godebos/debos:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from godebos/debos

Status: Downloaded newer image for godebos/debos:latest
standard_init_linux.go:211: exec user process caused "exec format error"
#

Second - is there a simple way to enable USB-gadget without installing all of pinephone-devtools? I guess install openssh-server, dnsmasq-base but will still need a couple of suitable nmcli commands? Or maybe just install mobian-devtools?

Regarding the first point:
I haven't tried building an image on an arm64 machine. Could you try building it on an x86_64 machine?

Regarding the second point:
I don't know the details for the USB gadget, but you could check the mobian-meta package. I'm not sure about the relation between mobian-devtools and pinephone-devtools (apart from pinephone-devtools depending on mobian-devtools).

Edit: After checking with @a-wai you should probably have a look at https://gitlab.com/mobian1/devices/pinephone-support

Certainly the "debos" method works fine on x86 - I will try with the docker flag and see what happens. Main issue is I have to borrow the x86 machine Smile
