2021–07–26: The latest prototype

Revision 2 of the PinePhone keyboard, this one is actually nice to type on :D

I've created a reference card for myself for the -out

Maybe it's useful for someone else? Hopefully there are no mistakes ;)

I eventually took 10 minutes to write a very quick post to talk about Mastodon and especially the TUI tut.

Why is everyone talking about #Windows 11 these days? We are waiting for the free #Debian 11 instead! Who too?

We'd like to take the opportunity to thank all the Debian contributors for their work in the past and on the upcoming #Bullseye release. Thank you for reliably powering Codeberg since day one!

We've been listening to feedback that there are too many password prompts in the on-device installer and that the dedicated #SSH user is confusing.

New workflow:
* sshd always disabled
* confusing prompts removed
* follow steps in the wiki to enable sshd and to disable password auth

Shout out to @mobian who is also using the on-device installer, contributed quite a few cool things and always had the dedicated SSH user dialog disabled 👋

Running a tiling WM on your phone sounds like a stupid idea... until you discover #Sxmo. The whole thing is simple but amazing - it takes one or two days to get used to it, but then you know it inside out. Thanks to the built-in extensibility and simple codebase, you can change everything to your liking. This interface and its skilled community have become a great asset in
the wider #linux smartphone ecosystem!

About time I join the party here on #mastodon. Or rather, after careful consideration of how much of a timesink this will be vs. the benefit of being able to do some not-directly-pmOS related toots, I decided this makes sense for me 😀

I knew, going into #PinePhone ownership, that on account of #Mobian being early-stage and hacky, and PinePhone being (by modern phone standards) a bit underpowered, that it would involve some work to make the phone into something I could bear to use daily.

Here's an example though of how the flip-side applies - that I _can put in the work to make it better_:

I wanted áúóéí characters for my Gaeilge, and the built-in keyboards don't provide AltGr which is used to type those in Gnome/Linux. No problem, it seems - I can just change some config files and add either AltGr, or perhaps just make a totally custom and more useful keyboard that lets me switch more comfortably between languages.

This is why I choose a true Linux phone.
