Manjaro Fusion Beta 3 release:

Manjaro comes in phosh, lomiri, and fusion-mobile versions for PinePhone:

The 17-distro multi boot has an earlier version but this Beta 3, which was released yesterday, is looking like it's a significant update for me and I've mostly been a Mobian fan up until now.

Thanks for the info @calinb - will give it a try tonightSmile

EDIT: Yeah, this seems pretty good so far. I bet there's loads of people (like me) who don't even know about these github builds. Looking at the main site, the beta2 appears to be the latest plasma version, and a lot of the nightlies don't even boot up. Thanks again.

Glad that's working for you.  Have fun with Megi's Multi-boot image and your new Pinephone!

I'm really fond of the Lomiri GUI you get with UBPorts myself.  Manjaro have a version (Alpha 3) with the Lomiri interface which is also looking promising:
https://forum.manjaro.org/t/manjaro-arm-...hone/49923

Manjaro Phosh (Beta 6) seems to be one of the distros with the most functionality currently:
https://forum.manjaro.org/t/manjaro-arm-...hone/55679
Mobian is another one to try for the most functionality.

Sailfish looks lovely too (perhaps nicer than the Lomiri GUI), but like many of the distros currently, plenty of bugs still and I believe there is some proprietary UI code? 

Whilst I love the way the Pinephone is shaping up, for me none of the Pinephone distros are quite daily driver ready as yet, so for the moment I'm running UBPorts on an old Android handset (Nexus 5 - Hammerhead), nearly everything works and works well; including Anbox which allows you to run some Android apps albeit not always perfectly.
 

I've been playing with Ubuntu Touch this morning. I see there's still work to do on the camera. I tried Sailfish and it was a bit stuck after the tutorial. I'd like to give Manjaro a chance too. Even if it's not a daily driver yet I'm having fun playing with it. I have a couple of Android phones I can play with too. It took forever to get my pinephone because I ordered (without knowing) during Chinese New Year so I had to wait a bit longer than most. But I finally have it. Thanks again for your help. I hate asking for it but I was super stuck and got a little frustrated.

Jadzia_D - In regards to trying out Sailfish, I read somewhere that either having a SIM card inserted in on first boot OR setting up no password (if you have no SIM) on setup will get you past the tutorial. I am still waiting for them to build the new image, as updating from SailfishOS 3.4.0.24 resulted in failure. Hope this helps
