Stuff I did


None this week. I tried to and recorded for a few minutes, but it turned out: I would have needed more time to produce something meaningful about Ubuntu Touch and postmarketOS Plasma Mobile on the Librem 5 needs more time to get good. Don't expect videos next week; but I might be able to churn out a blog post. That aside, I'll be on holidays and try to spend a lot of time away from keyboard and off social media.


I played with an unofficial Fedora 34 build for the PinePhone. After setting a password, I was able to launch GNOME 40, which ran surprisingly well and (given a few tweaks and maybe a little more powerful hardware) feels closer than 3.38 was for phone use. The same Fedora image comes with Phosh too, and is ok with that.


I added four apps to LINMOBapps. See here what (else) happened. Please do contribute!
