Some progress to handle notches / cutouts of phones better in : I have a small lib that gets panel cutout / notch information as paths and can calculate a bounding box . can use it to render cutouts for debugging and can use it for layout (so far only to shift the panel down). (see follow up posts for more pictures).
1️⃣ /4️⃣

@agx On my OP6 I currently shift the clock to the right. I'd much prefer a smaller panel with more efficient icons e.g. signal bar with 4G could be combined and location could be on the left to allow wider date or battery percentage which could also be part of the icon. 250% scale is perfect for this phone but messes up the keyboard and lockscreen.

@joshfowler I assume you apply some custom CSS then? Both 's lockscreen and -osk-stub look right here at scale 2.5 (got myself temporary access to a Oneplus 6T to check that)

@agx Not as far as I know, using stock pmOS but adjusted things with the Tweaks app provided with the image, that might change the css?

@joshfowler hmm...seems my reply somehow vanished: pmOS tweaks sets CSS which likely causes your problem. Basically if you add additional CSS you got to keep the pieces.
There's some other caveats with fractinal scaling atm but phosh itself should render correctly at scale 2.5 (it does here on current main).

@agx I removed the customisations in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css, rebooted, changed the scaling and it still does the same thing to the keyboard.

@joshfowler But lockscreen is fixed?

Your screenshot show's squeekboard so I assume you're hitting . I'm using phosh-osk-stub instead as I rely on some of it's features and that ones scales according to the screenshot I posted.

@agx My apologies "messes up the lockscreen" isn't very descriptive so I will attempt to explain better. The scaling on the lockscreen is correct, same as in Phosh, but it groups the numbers together on the numpad input because it is scaled away from the edges of the phone. At 300% scaling I regularly miss a number when unlocking, with 250% it's every time.

Aha, so there is a different keyboard! Do you know of a guide to switch between them?

@joshfowler Ah regarding lock screen, you want to send patches to allow for more spacing between the keys and maybe even scale up a bit.

Regarding switching keyboards:
That depends on your distro. In Debian it's just `update-alternatives`. On pmOS building from source and installing to `/usr/local/` should do the trick. That's at least how I run it there for testing. Note that phosh-osk-stub is experimental so make sure you have ssh access.


@joshfowler Generally speaking: while we try to take higher resolution devices into account when developing phosh it's not continuously tested (e.g. phosh's CI tests 360x720) so it needs people to step up to send patches for those devices and to get rid of the papercuts (and we can then make sure we don't regress via CI).

@agx Yeah, I understand that you need to limit scope to deliver a better experience faster to L5.

Just an aside, my friend pointed out that Phosh is technically illegal (at least in the UK) because you can't call emergency services from the lockscreen as far as we could figure out. I haven't personally verified if this is a legal requirement but it does make sense.

@joshfowler I'm not familiar with the regulations in UK but there's - basically for the bits in calls to land.
