I loved that function in my LG G2 (and I think some versions of Cyanogenmod): I think this phosh version is causing some phone hard locks occasionally? After a long period of no use I get the clock screen appears with the time I last switched off the screen. And no way will slide up work.

The double tap would have to be implemented in phosh, but would cause a number of issues: the touch panel would have to be kept powered on while the screen is blanked, which would draw unnecessary power most of the time, and prevent the phone from going to sleep.
Actually, the touch panel IS currently powered on even with the screen blanked, but it causes a few issues:
- when carrying the phone in your pocket, touch events are received, causing the display to wake up and drain the battery
- these touch events "reset" the idle timer, meaning auto-suspend won't work

All of this is a serious power management issue, and my take is that the touch panel should be powered off simultaneously to the display backlight. I know this makes the "wake on double tap" practically impossible to implement, but this wouldn't work from deep sleep anyway.

That being said, it all needs to be discussed with upstream.

Nope, this could be a phosh setting, but it doesn't exist yet.

Drivers are there, but for some reason the camera doesn't work yet.

Hi,
hope this is the right place, didnt want to start a new thread.
Installed debian image from 14May and done apt update apt upgrade - is this the same as downloading latest nightly build? how can I check which version I'm running? lsb_release is not working

- ifconfig is not working, ip is not working (ip a etc) - is there alternative command?
- how to take screenshots?
- battery level is reporting 51% when full, I assume it is known issue
- after 1 minute of inactivity, screen goes blank. is this the same as switching off the screen with power button? or its burning more battery when blank? the screen gets activated with just one touch. is there a way to properly shut off screen after some time?
- software center sometimes reports error: the name org.freedesktop.fwupd was not provided by any .service files

You can use "grim" to take screenshots. More info at: http://www.janwagemakers.be/jekyll/pinep...nshot.html

settings / power / scroll to the bottom for screen suspend timer.


with the screen on / touch battery icon /becomes off button/ touch it again/ = lock screen or power off

$ lsb_release -a

Don't know about gpu clock, but higher memory clock has issues for some users (see here), so for the moment no higher clocks will be used.

Nope, with the issues pointed out by @devrtz we'll stick to conservative frequencies. Stability first!
(plus, higher frequencies are not exactly the best way to save battery life)

My lockdown location has 19th century mobile broadband signal (yes I know that is not possible but my operator is trying!) and dubious WiFi: trying to sort all the various instabilities is a PITA.

Thank you a-wai & Co for your hard work! Mobian is running on my emmc as of today and works great!
"- is there already a tool for overclocking it desperately?"
