phosh-osk-stub will soon be able to turn on completion opportunistically: When the text-input has the "completion" hint set it's turned on, otherwise it defaults to off. E.g. it's disabled in 's search field but automatically switched on in the chat view :


This tiny Blackberry Q20 #keyboard isn't a mechanical keyboard, but mounted on an #OpenHardware PCB by @arturo182 and #Solderparty ( which makes it a generic USB-C keyboard (and mouse). So cuuuuute! 🥰 😍

Available ready to use at e.g. or or (Not affiliated and I don't get any money. Just a happy #Pimoroni customer. 😇)

Background: Rama Works U80-A keyboard with MT3 Skiidata keycaps for comparison.

There's just been an update for my #Librem5. The new #phosh version offers an experimental plugin called phosh-ticket-box.

It allows the user to show PDFs from the lockscreen without unlocking the phone.

Show the QR for the parcel you want to send without unlocking.
Show your train ticket without unlocking
Show whatever PDF you like without unlocking.

It can be enabled in phosh-mobile-settings in the Lockscreen menu.

gsettings get sm.puri.phosh.plugins.ticket-box folder shows the path inside the home directory the plugin looks for PDFs in. The default is /home/purism/phosh-ticket-box.

Make the directory, put a PDF inside, enable the plugin and lock the phone. Enable the screen, swipe from the left border of the screen towards the right, select by swiping left and right the Tickets pane (if you have enabled more then one plugin) and click on the PDF to show.

Resizing and scrolling works with the known gestures.

Thanks !


I noticed this is working now, it works to stop the alarm without unlocking. Thanks! 👍

It will be much appreciated by certain of my family members who have been complaining that it always took so long for me to turn off the alarm in the morning. 😄


With the update of @dino to 0.3.1 in #debian, the functionality on small screens such as #pinephone running #mobian ... did not work so great.

The version uploaded to debian experimental, allowed resizing the different parts of the window a little bit, but still often hid useful information...

So I refreshed the libhandy patches!

The "UNRELEASED" repository is signed by my key in the debian-keyring.

Have not tested much, but works for me!

0.7.0-rc4 the multi protocol client (sms, matrix, xmpp) used with on multiple mobile devices, running on a desktop with multiple accounts and an account.

It's not exactly a "big deal" to run it on a desktop, since one of the ideas with is convergence, and being able to run the same software across devices (mobile, desktop, tablet, etc), to be able to do this sort of thing.

But it is still very cool to see :)

As I don't speak Japanese myself I could need help here: Does this make sense to pursue? As I read that flick input is preferred nowadays I wonder if romaji
is useful at all? Does the typing look correct? What would be the minimal missing to make this useful to people?

This is osk-stub reusing the (not yet merged) completion code to talk to -anthy to input bits of . I mostly did that to see if the interface is flexible enough but it would be great to make this actually usable:


🚀📱 I've tagged version 0.0.1 of (a daemon to handle audio, haptic and led feedback on e.g. when using (but not limited to) .

There's still no API guarantees but having releases should make it a bit easier for distros than tracking git snapshots.

Thanks @devrtz for the fixes in this release!

Interesting read by @agx "On a road to Prizren with a #FreeSoftware Phone" about using the #Librem5 to travel to #Debconf 22 (the #Debian conference) and improvements made #nt

A bit later than usual but with more style improvements, better battery indicator and more:

Video is at 3 x speed as typing is fiddly with the camera over the phone 🙂 .

You need to enable completion in the debug panel as I need to fix some other edges before turning it on by default

I'm really good at making typos so I revisited the text-completion support in 's osk-stub and added a completer based on the library and trained it with a German text from @gutenberg_org and was surprised how well that works. 1/2
