I always wanted a simple way to do measurements on the with a voltmeter or scope while still having most of the hardware like attached and being able to swap components quickly. Today i got an idea and it works fairly well. I can even flip the whole thing around fairly quickly to measure on the other side and put the whole thing away to free space on the desk:

As of todays -next (git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/k) you can run the without any additional patches using the default mainline arm64 . This means distributions can enable it without trouble from 5.12 onwards. The itself needs some more work but it builds a lot on what we have for the devkit.

Just tagged phoc 0.6.0 - notable changes: filters out touch events on disabled touchscreens (thanks to @craftyguy), improves handling of tiled windows, includes plenty of bugfixes for mouse pointer support and tries a bit harder to fit windows onto the screen (which may help some Flatpak apps). Grab it for your distro while it's fresh! @purism source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/

I've put together a short overview on and closely related components and how they play together: honk.sigxcpu.org/con/phosh_ove

A few years ago I've switched my Debian server from unstable to testing. These days I start to consider leaving it on stable once Bullseye gets released.

Am I... growing up?

0.7.1 is out 🚀 : source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-

Bug fixes for keyboard navigation, monitor unplug, and modal dialog background rendering (@dos) but also new features like keygrabbing support (to make e.g media keys work) by @devrtz and initial logind support.


With phoc being a phone compositor and touchscreen being a primary input device, mouse pointer handling has been a bit neglected - but it's going to change soon! Fixing some pointer-related bugs and adding quality of life improvements in :) @purism

With latest updates, GNOME Web (Epiphany) can play YouTube videos on the Librem 5, so you won't have to switch to Firefox to do that anymore. And you won't believe where the bug was located[1]! ;) Call `sudo apt install gstreamer1.0-libav` or wait a few days until it's installed by default with the next update and enjoy. @purism

[1] it was in glibc...

0.7.0 is out 🚀 : source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-

This features automatic media mounting, initial support for background XML, handling of per app `show-banners` notification setting and fixes for swipe window closing by @exalm


Ok, maybe it's not that impressive for a regular person in 2020, but right now I'm playing Neverball in VR mode using cardboard headset with fully FLOSS GL driver (etnaviv) on a GNU/Linux phone (Librem 5) and it's damn amazing! :D @purism

Still waiting for you @purism #Librem5 to arrive, too? Watch @gbryant's nice unboxing and first impressions video of the Librem 5 Evergreen: lbry.tv/@TheLinuxGamer:f/gb-ev

The game is ODGŁOS that takes you through a journey about the origins of electronic and experimental music, which you can play in browser: holypangolin.itch.io/odglos

Librem 5 phone + Steam Controller + TV + Polish Radio Experimental Studio + couch

Starting a phone call from the terminal on a Birch. This call is to the good old "Fröken ur" speaking-clock service telling us the current time in Swedish. Fröken ur apparently existed since 1934 but it was not until 2020 that I learned how to call her from the terminal. 😃 Thanks @dos for the tip that xdg-open could be used in this way. @purism

Librem 5 Visual Walkthrough

"With the Mass-produced Evergreen phone now starting to ship, we put together a video walkthrough of the launch software as well as an overview of the final hardware."


One of the things I've been personally looking for on the was USSD support in Calls. No need to wait anymore, as it was recently implemented by Mohammed Sadiq just in time for the Evergreen release :) @purism
