Well. LibreOffice successfully installed on the Librem 5!
But... I mean... It won't actually run.
... will it?
LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!
AND IT WORKS.
Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!
@lunduke Now put obsstudio on it and live stream to the bird site. Just for fun and profit!
@lunduke Damn. That's kinda cool.
@xj9 i see a fellow Plan9 fan
@csolisr Vim on 32 bits: 2GB.
On 64 bits: Exabytes.
2 GB is about 1.3 million pages of 8-byte charactersets 250 words/pg.
@lunduke Admittedly, that is pretty damn cool.
@lunduke But can it run Crysis though?
@lunduke That's amazing, especially considering I can't do this on Android, at least not properly
@lunduke hi Bryan Lunduke, this is fantastic! Thanks for sharing.
@lunduke it took ten years but at last!
Obligatory screenshot of the predecessor
@lunduke This is pretty amazing!
@Wolf480pl I would still prefer this to an android phone, if only I could afford it. It would still be much more useful to me than having a locked-down and vulnerable OS in my pocket all the time.
I hope with time these devices become more affordable.
@setthemfree yeah definitely. I'm not criticizing the phone or the OS. It's just that I don't see the point of running LibreOffice on a phone - without a proper mouse and keyboard, it'd be pretty unwieldy.
@Wolf480pl Sometimes, although very rarely, I needed to open odt/docx files on a phone. And I think it could even be useful in this current state to be able to read the content of such files (switching to "web view" could help on a small screen).
@setthemfree well if you had a dedicated document viewer, as opposed to an editor, it wouldn't have all those toolbars that take most of the space.
I still think that a situation in which we need to carry 4 cores and 4GB of RAM with us to display a map or view a website is pathological. But now that we've ended up in it, guess it wouldn't be bad if people could attach some sane peripherals to the 4 cores and 4GB of RAM they already have as use it as a regular PC.
@lunduke oh yeah! Now that's what I'm talkin' about! :D
@lunduke what a monstrosity have you unleashed upon these lands
@lunduke I bet you can clear a lot of the clutter away in settings.
What about abiword?
@lunduke You got LibreOffice on it!?
@masterofthetiger Yup. :)
@lunduke How well does it work?
@masterofthetiger Weirdly well. The UI is cramped as heck (obviously), but it's totally actually usable. And honestly doesn't look bad! Just... so rad.
@lunduke with the default dialer, are there any settings where you can connect to a VoIP sip account?
Actually android has a similar experience.
By swiping up from the navigation bar, you open the multitasking view, which has a small dock on the bottom.
If you swipe up again, you open the entire app drawer
@lunduke isn’t that pretty much how gnome is?
One of the first things I'm going to do when I get mine is put dosbox on it and then see if it'll run wizardry 7. If it does, it'll be nirvana.
