Saying "no" to unethical tasks
Starting a phone call from the terminal on a #librem5 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 #calls #mobile #gnu #linux #freesoftware
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."
Based on @craftyguy 's #osk-sdl work i added cryptsetup-initramfs support to the #librem5's image-builder so one can build #luks encrypted images too. There's more work needed for this to hit the factory floor but at least one can build own images with encryption once all is merged. The video shows the devkit since this a bit simpler to debug over serial:
#phoc 0.5.0 has been released, including mostly bugfixes around output handling. Grab it from https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/releases/v0.5.0
#phosh 0.5.0 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.5.0
This adds more keybindings, "docked mode" (for usage with external screen/mouse/keyboard) and more fixes with multiple screens.

"Ultimately the Librem 5 phone lets you take your regular workflow with you while also keeping you in contact with your friends and family."
@purism While fixing #convergence related issues in #phosh, #phoc and the kernel for the #librem5 I wanted things to be more automatic. So #phosh can now enable a 'docked' mode on screen plug: windows become moveable automatically (and get their close button back), #squeekboard gets disabled and there's a quick setting that lets you toggle that too:
