Re: The new QWERTY device project

I think I remember Chen saying before that he doesn't like gluing things and prefers screws.

Re: The new QWERTY device project

I have a Fairphone 2, and even I think this is way out of scope!

Re: The Mighty N900 Week 2017

Yeah, it's pretty good, most of those nice design decisions are facilitated by the hardware keyboard and resistive touchscreen though. Much easier to edit and select text etc.

Re: The Mighty N900 Week 2017

Lol. You're right of course.

I hope you don't actually experience that kind of attitude BTW.

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

About time we had another IGG update - hopefully it won't be a "sorry we can't get it to you in time for christmas" message, but I fear that's what is on the way :(

Re: [Council] Q1 2018 Community Council Election Announcement

Thanks for the nomination, but I think I will sit this one out, we've got a baby on the way in the new year so things will likely be a bit too hectic for me to be useful!

Re: What's the best Handheld gnu/linux machine for 2017?

What happened, did you get a refund? Why do you think it would be the standout winner if you never got linux on it?

Re: What's the best Handheld gnu/linux machine for 2017?

I like Termux... since you seem to use it quite a lot, i wonder if you know how to enable bash autocompletion?

Re: Purism Librem Phone

I'm sure they are just doing it for extra marketing buzz. If they have marketing people as well as technical people, there's no harm done (marketing people can't exactly do the detailed technical...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

At the moment they don't have a mobile distro, it's just for laptops. They are working with Plasma Mobile and the Gnome team to develop the new mobile UI stuff.

Re: [Announce] Rockpool - Pebble daemon for Sailfish

I think I had the same problem ages ago and the solution was to rotate the screen a few times in a row, which brought up the keyboard. Might be misremembering.

Re: The new QWERTY device project

Chen, is i.MX8 a realistic option, or is the hardware design way more complicated to the extent that it would pose a risk to the project?

Asking because I'd happily accept a device that is slower...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Don't forget Jolla are basically maintaining Mer by themselves.



Yeah but that's someone else's problem, right? Their part of the bargain is to produce hardware that can use a mainline Linux...

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

Looks like Chen is pretty busy with the keyboard mod (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/keyboard-mod-a-physical-keyboard-for-the-moto-z#/comments) at the moment.

Edit: some nice new photos (of...

I wrote Hammerhead Torch. I'm happy to talk to anyone who wants to adapt it for some other purpose.

Damn, I was hoping they had implemented some generic camera launcher feature that could be used on FP2 :(

I think I understand what you are saying (even though this post gives a very different impression to your previous post IMO).

However, I don't even think it's something new!

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I don't think it was that, more the fact that they said they would support the xperia x for a set amount of time and then re-evaluate.

IMO that's reasonable since you're not paying again and again...

Do you use Aliendalvik, exchange etc.? If not, you could just use the community port.
