terminal application disappeared from app drawer (pmos+phosh)
#1
Hey!

I installed PmOS with Phosh a couple of days ago. I was planning to install pmos+phosh on the emmc, so I already installed pmbootstrap and run the init command. After a reboot the terminal application in the app drawer was gone. I can't provide details to the installation or log files (it must have been the phosh release from two days ago). pmOs 1.17.0.


Settings / Applications show the terminal app as installed.

Without the terminal app you're stuck. I tried to use a keyboard shortcut to start the command prompt, but it's not working with the software keyboard. Next I will try to access the phone via ssh and reinstall the terminal app (when I've found out how it is called).

Before this happened I installed python-pip3, gparted (which is not working) and gnome-disk-utilitiy. I don't think that this bug is related to these installations, but who knows.

Maybe someone has an idea. At the end I will flash the sd card again.

I could access the phone via ssh and reinstall "kgx" (which is king's cross terminal emulator ). It had no effect. But after I installed gnome-terminal both terminal applications appeared in the app drawer. As gnome-terminal comes with a lot dependencies I removed it -- and my terminal was gone again :-( 

Afterwards I installed "lxterminal" with the effect that "kgx" appeared again. Lxterminal did not.

So I'm still not sure what caused the problem, but a little proud to have at least the terminal back (without reinstalling everything - I'm just a linux enthusiast)

Usefull apk commands:

apk info -vv | grep terminal (to find out which terminal applications are installed on the system)

It's a known issue in phosh, will hopefully be fixed soon.

Hi, I got my Pinephone today and installed the latest (3.16) PMos+phosh on it. But terminal app is not there at all.

Have you tried my workaround via ssh and installing a different terminal app?
