phosh 0.20.0~beta2 is out 🚀📱 :

It fixes most of the things for 0.20.0 but there's more.

Check out the full release notes at for details.


If an application is not adaptive and hence doesn't fit the phone screen under , 's scale-to-fit could help since some time. With the recent phoc release this can happen at runtime and there's a GUI for that now too:


When discussing something completely different () with @debacle at Debian Reunion in HH I remembered that I started bindings for a while back. So I pulled out that code on my way back, decrufted it a bit and it can now create objects and call methods. It needs way more work but it's starting to do useful things:

phosh 0.20.0~beta1 is out 🚀📱 :

Couple of days late due to Reunion in HH but here we go:

* swipe gestures on top and bottom bar
* quick settings and top bar on lock screen
* Revamp settings menu
* Lots of detail fixes

It's a beta since we want to put some final touches on gestures and top-bar to not regress (see

Initial compositor code is now merged onto and 's main development branches. There's some visual and structural stuff to fix before the next release but I'm running it since weeks now and it proved to be pretty stable.

📱Quick settings are moving to phosh's lock screen which gives us more always visible indicators too:

phosh 0.17.0 is out 🚀📱 :

The release is a bit smaller than usual but syncing up with 42 is well worth it:

* Add mobile data (or rather lack thereof) indicator
* Implement portal access API
* Sync up with GNOME 42 changes

With the groundwork for gestures coming to I wanted to see if we can reuse the animation code needed for that in other places like 's tiling window placement.

phosh 0.16.0 is out 🚀 :

* Nicer (fading) labels in the overview (by @KekunPlazas )
* Keypad can shuffle the buttons
* More style refresh by Sam

Check out the full release notes for details.

As of 0.15.0 supports arbitrary passwords. Those who want to stick to 0⃣1⃣2⃣3⃣4⃣5⃣6⃣7⃣8⃣9⃣ can shuffle the layout to make 🕵️‍♀️ a bit harder (once the merge request landed). Can be turned ▶️/⏹️ via a gsetting.

I used that to explore completion via and a simple word list a bit. Turns out it does quite well for German due to the rather long words, not so well for English. But now I have the problem partitioned between the on screen keyboard side and what is needed on the completion side in my head.

Heads up: phosh-osk-stub moved out of 's repo and to: as it acquired more and more cruft while debugging some (now fixed) touch input related issues in 4.

Mostly mentioning it here since some distros (such as ) used it in the past on architectures that had trouble building to fulfill session dependencies (which is not an issue anymore nowadays) so it can safely be dropped.

We're close to merge request #1000 in . Thanks for all the contributions! Who will open MR1000 ?

If you want to be always up to date about what's cooking for the next release (besides what's already merged to the main branch) check out phosh-next: - it gets all the merge-requests that are waiting for more review, some minor cleanups, etc. The current list of MRs is in the commit message and `debian/changelog`.

Please don't ship that in distributions but additional review, feedback and testing is certainly very welcome.

phosh 0.14.1 is out 🚀 :

It has lock screen phone call improvements, better thumbnails, a "Run command" dialog and lots of fixes for every day use. Check the release notes for details.

So far 's system prompts had no way to express the input purpose as used underneath didn't yet support it, hence e.g. a SIM card pin prompt would bring up a full keyboard instead of just a keypad.

After patching , , and gnome-settings-deamon this is how it looks like atm:
