I wrote up some observations about the differences between the L5USA and PP:

Comparing the Librem 5 USA and PinePhone Beta


I would like to hear any feedback/critiques and know whether other people are seeing the same performance differences between the two phones.

I’ll probably post more observations later about the PP on my blog, now that I have it in my grubby little hands and can try using it as a phone. Sadly, I had to send the L5USA back to Purism for servicing and I don’t know when I’ll get back to the US to pick it up.

It's super long, so it might probably take me many weeks to get through it I think.
But I went through a little bit, and one thing caught my eyes:

I noticed an "X" button on the Librem screen, but not on the Pine screen.
Was this button present on the Librem 5 from the very beginning, or did you enable it by yourself?
In the case of the latter, which Gsetting is that?

@amosbatto  thank you for the detailed comparison. It is super interesting. That must have been a lot of work!

The more I read about the Librem5, the more I like it. I don't mind the price; however I cannot justify to myself spending more than the combined cost of my last four cars, let alone to my wife!

Thank you for he write up.
:wq

In "dconf editor", go to "org / gnome / desktop / wm / preferences / button-layout" -> use default value ("appmenue:close")

On my PineTab it will be set back when docked -> undocked

This should do it:
Code:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":close"
Going back to normal is a
Code:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ""
away.

Thanks, this worked.
I toyed around with it by adding the other 2 buttons, but seems like those did nothing, so I removed maximize and minimize again, but I'll keep the close button.
