So I spent the last few hours on taking pictures of cats with the rear camera of my Librem 5. Yep, that's my job now.

All credit for the camera support goes to Dorota, Martin and Angus: source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-n @merge @purism

If flatpaks ask for location service access can now handle that as a agent (which became useful after fixing that for recent kernels using cgroupv2 (gitlab.freedesktop.org/geoclue):

Can Librem 5 run Flutter linux desktop apps? Yep! I was able to successfully build and run my BodySculpting weightlifting workout app today on Librem 5 itself. Code once, build for Android, iOS, and Libremt5, how cool is that!

Maximal and minimal of the . beats at both. Also the Pinephone screen colors look colder in comparison. Librem 5 screen looks more pleasant to my eye.

phoc 0.7.0 has just been released!

This version includes mouse based snap-to-edge for tiling and maximizing; window move & resize fixes for touchscreens; and **big** stability improvements - I haven't seen it crashing a single time for a while now :)

Grab it at source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/

Here we can see a Plasmus Vulgaris specimen wandering outside of its regular habitat. Carefully testing the waters, encouraged by being docked, it slowly gets to know the unfamiliar surroundings of the phosh environment it found itself in - the other major part of the diverse ecosystem populating the Librem 5.

Fun fact - the biggest difference comes from this single commit: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/c

Then the new "ngl" renderer and fixes in the Wayland backend boost the performance even further.

GTK4's GPU-accelerated GL renderer(s) got a major performance boost in the last few days! Previously it struggled to render simple UIs with single digit FPS on the Librem 5; now it can get pretty fancy :)

phosh running inside a container under phosh, plus phosh's source code in Qt Creator - all on the Librem 5. Perfect for when you want to work on the phone on the phone :D

Here's Plasma Desktop on PureOS Byzantium running on the Librem 5 phone docked to an external display - just because :D @kde @purism

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

Now supports 's OSD DBus protocol, indicates microphone hardware kill switch state, fixes around the overview including long-swipes. Requires libhandy >= 1.1.90

Thanks @devrtz @dos, @exalm

@purism

This is the jellyfish h264 demo on a using the 's VPU.

Using the CPU we take 300% of CPU time, using the VPU instead we take 10% (and even that can be optimized further). Using the VPU also saves ~1.5W of power. Thanks go to the and kernel folks for making this possible!

"me in the morning, right after I turned the switches on"

This may not be the most impressive winter selfie (it's a 8M sensor outputting 0.3M after all), but you got to start somewhere :)

I did nothing but taking the photo (looped in a script with v4l2-ctl and dcraw; then displayed on screen using Eye of GNOME) - all the credit goes to Dorota and Martin, and the work continues there: source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-n

This is no where near finished but here's some first bits of startup notifications in (i'm usually using on the but I needed something that takes longer to start up so i went for ):
