Do you know how to change the keyboard size on PinePhone (Phosh)? I've changed the size of buttons but the keyboard is still using ~30% of the screen.
@nirucon intersting... Just tried again and it worked. But a few weeks ago it didn't. Good news 🙂 I don't need to run Chats in background anymore.
@nirucon did you try to send and receive SMS? My Mobian doesn't show any notification of received SMS if Chats is not running. If Chats is running, everything is ok.
@retroedgetech I have a separate container for Google web apps. So I never login to Google in my main browser. (I'm also running Skype for Web is in another container). I was thinking about VMs but VMs consume too much resources.
Just out of curiosity do you run browsers in a container, virtual machine or use Linux Namespaces?
I use containers on NixOS and Namespaces on Debian because some websites scan ports on localhost and some apps, which listen to local host, don't ask user/password by default when connection is from lo to lo interface.
@louis I forward all DNS requests to Tor. Not sure if it's a good idea but at least i can open normal sites and .onion sites transparently. All .onion sites are forwarded to the Tor proxy automatically.
@rav3ndust hm, not bad. Maybe i should try PineTime. Pine64 makes interesting devices.
@rav3ndust Cool! How long does PineTime battery last?
@falconjon Do autocomplete and refactoring work in Emacs? I'm thinking about switching to doom emacs. It has Normal mode... maybe will try it.
@Mau5 i'm using Tootle
@prismavoid NixOS on my main machine and Debian/Armbian on my home servers.
@avongil F-Droid has almost all apps I need, but I also used Aurora Store to download and install some apps from the google store.
@removeareef Java. I'm learning Haskell now. 20 years ago used C and Assembler for x86.
@ironshellfish Aaa, It's amazing. I tried Laksa when I was in Singapore 2 years ago.
@avongil Agree, android is very polished. I used LineageOS without Google services on my previous phone (Xiaomi Mi Max 3). 99% of apps didn't have any problems. To restrict proprietary apps I used Magisk+XPrivacyLua.
I tied to install microG but the phone started hanging quite often. So decided to remove it. I went for the pine because the most of new android phone are not supported by lineage os or other aosp based roms. Locked bootloaders is a big problem.
@avongil I bought PinePhone. Using moian (debian based rom). It's interesting but it is still not ready for everyday use.
I'm NixOS user and Java developer.
