> Time is a talent given us by God, and it is misspent and lost when not employed according to his design. If we have lost our time heretofore, we must double our diligence for the future. Of that time which thousands on a dying bed would gladly redeem at the price of the whole world, how little do men think, and to what trifles they daily sacrifice it! People are very apt to complain of bad times; it were well if that stirred them more to redeem time. – Matthew Henry
What could substitute for it?
I think too nobody wants to be reminded of death today, much less learn how to die.
The other part of the solution was to install #pavucontrol, which allowed me to set the (proportedly unplugged) headphone jack as the output. I guess the #pinephone hardware was having a hard time detecting the plug state of that. Sadly, plugging into my speakers produced a quieter sound than using the internal speaker.
@zachdecook Just guessing: You may be missing some gstreamer plugins. Try installing gst-plugins-bad and if that does not help gst-plugins-ugly.
On #postmarketos 21.03.1 with #phosh, the #pinephone can play ogg files in #lollypop fine over bluetooth (by changing output in audio sources list).
Anyone got pointers for playing mp3, flac, m4a files over the headphone jack?
They skip in #mpv, and don't show up in lollypop. The headphone jack doesn't show up in sound settings.
Week 2 with the #pinephone. Used the phone to flash #postmarketos #phosh onto an SD card.
I love #squeekboard's customizability (yaml files for custom layout). #kgx is buggy with scrolling issues, can't copy-paste.
Wish phosh was more customizable (custom button actions on bottom bar plz?), use wallpaper in the launcher/lockscreen. How can I customize the password numpad on the lockscreen?
My hand is always accidentally touching the edge of the screen (got a popsocket and this still happens)
I imagine that could be some crash recovery feature...
Day 4 of #manjaroarm #plasmamobile on the #pinephone
It's really cool that I can compile full apps directly on this device.
I'm gonna move my sim card back because I need stability, and the constant crashing doesn't give that; I missed my first phone call.
If the tethering worked, I might have kept my sim in there a while longer, because of Google Voice WiFi calling on android device.
Checking `last` indicates it's been crashing about every hour.
Day 3 using #plasmamobile on the #pinephone
Installed geary mail (geary-mobile 1:22.214.171.12466 on manjaro).
While libhandy things look friendly, kirigami apps are more pleasant to use b/c reachability, gestures instead of clicks. Convergence is a great idea to re-use existing code, but intentional design is better.
Phone still shuts itself off randomly, sometimes flashlight flickers on when manually starting (restarting?). The negativity is amplified by the system taking like a minute to boot.
Along with the wallpaper reverting, the home screen app layout also frequently resets. (Do any of the developers actually use this system as a daily driver?).
Day 2 using #plasmamobile on the #pinephone
Most used text 'editor' is `cat - > filename.txt`, followed by the text, then 'cancel current command' from the ⋮ menu. Should I learn a GUI text editor, or learn ed?
Changed my wallpaper (but it keeps switching back). Couldn't figure how to change lockscreen bg.
Wi-Fi hotspot setting doesn't work: can't connect to its network (with dhcp or defined ip)
Why does this phone always turn itself on and off? I see nothing in battery settings.
Day 1.5 of using #plasmamobile on #pinephone
The default ringtone for my alarm was nothing :/
Set up aerc to read emails in the terminal... difficult. Oughtn't there be a default installed email client on a smartphone?
Sms messages are dethreaded in #spacebar due to missing country code in contacts.
Unreceived MMS with no notification or indication.
Haven't figured out how to get nextcloud caldav into #Calindori
Installed #lagrange from discover. It's unusable b/c keyboard doesn't pop up.
Day 1 of using #plasmamobile on the #pinephone:
Can send/receive sms and phone calls!
Wow, that keyboard is so broken. Haven't yet figured out how to fix Ctrl so I can press Ctrl+S in nano.
That's gonna make development very difficult. (May just use termux ssh from android device) Do I need to install a different virtual keyboard?
Just your average computer person with fullstack web dev experience.
