Plasma Mobile on Mobian?
#1
Question 
Hi all,

are there any compatible repos to install PlasmaMobile instead of Phosh? I really like Mobian but I'd prefer PlasmaMobile to Phosh.

Thanks!

Postmarket has a demo build using plasma. I think they are going with phosh for the future, bur that wouldn't stop you from installing any other desktop. check the pinephone OS wiki

Thanks, but I would prefer Mobian to PostmarketOS because of its optimizations and also because of the package system. That's also the reason why I don't use KDE Neon. I haven't found anything in the Pinephone OS wiki for my particular question.

There isn't a plasma mobile one yet, but shortly after I asked a question about enlightenment the e17 recipe appeared. There'll be the issue of oFono vs. ModemManager to look into when changing from Phosh to Plasma Mobile too.

Thanks, this is a really useful link. Now I have to play with e17 and openbox for the meantime Big Grin

Upon my suggestion Norbert Preining added ARM builds of his Debian Plasma builds. https://www.preining.info/blog/2020/07/k...020-07-04/

Plasma Mobile isn't in there but Plasma Desktop works good enough for some experiments. You'll have to stop phosh and start sddm in an ssh session tio get in there.

Not abandoned, don't worry.
The x recipes will come back in September.

Hi dancingqueen74,

Have you tried Purism's guide to switch to Plasma Mobile on the Librem 5?

PureOS and Mobian are both debian based so it could be worth a shot:
