KDE Neon Pinebook remix edition RC image
#1
Hello everyone!

I am excited to announce the KDE Neon Pinebook remix edition release candidate image.

https://dot.kde.org/2018/08/22/kde-plasm...p-pinebook

Image includes the,
  • KDE Neon packages for Ubuntu bionic (18.04)
  • KDE Plasma 5.13.4
  • KDE Frameworks 5.49.0
  • Qt 5.11.1
  • Linux kernel 3.10.105-bsp-1.2
Initially username/password is live/live

You can download .img.gz from,

https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebook-remix-nonfree/useredition/20180821-1118/

New image 20180917-1726:

https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebook-remix-nonfree/useredition/20180917-1726/

There are several fixes included,
  • Resuming from sleep is fixed
  • Broken audio after resuming from sleep
  • Bluetooth
  • Palm rejection (Disable "touchpad" while typing)
  • Disable/enable speakers when plugging/unplugging headphones
  • Disable accidental zoom invocation when scrolling in firefox
Errata:
  • Lack of real suspend, I believe this is due to choice of driver we are using, and currently turning lid off puts device to sleep and not suspend like mate image.
  • Sleep inverts the brightness control, after waking up from sleep brightness control are inverted.
New release: https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebo...1028-1500/

Fixes included
  • Proper suspend support instead of just sleep
  • Fix for the inverted brightness after waking up from sleep/suspend
  • Support for 1080p 11' IPS LCD pinebook
Errata
  • kcminit process is crashing in background continuously
Looking forward to your feedback in comments section.

In general images are rolling model, so you can find most recent image from this URL: https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebook-remix-nonfree/useredition

I am very curious if the sleep mode and sound works.

Also, there is a known bug in Qt 5.11 that causes KMail messages not displaying at all.

Suspend doesn't work.

There is a chance that 4.19 kernel will bring sleep mode to Pinebooks

I haven't slept for about 24 hours, so that may be the root cause for this, but why are several news sources:
https://news.softpedia.com/news/kde-neon...2368.shtml
https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/08/kde-...untu%21%29
https://dot.kde.org/2018/08/22/kde-plasm...p-pinebook

directing me here for "detailed installation instructions". I'm not seeing anything of the sort. I suspect you need to 'dd' the image to an sdcard, but that's not hinted at here.

Am I missing something? Am I too early? What's going on?

P.S. Kudos to the KDE devs.
