Transforming OpenStreetMap into thick roads and intersections: an very nice post about creating assumptions on roads based on OSM #osm #maps #streets #intersections #geometry

@purism Does/will PureOS Store also read those AppStream values from Flatpak/Flathub apps?

With some work, mostly config tweaks and scaling, I got running on my . There's still more experience "papercuts" with scrolling and placement, but still really neat that it works.

@dos @purism Alright that did it. There are a few things a little small or too close to the screen edges, but otherwise works quite well with touch input.

@dos @purism On a separate note, now that I installed wesnoth from the repo, it doesn't seem to run. Was there anything config-wise needed like in the video?

@dos @purism weird, it wasn't showing up in gnome software but it is true it shows up running apt. Maybe something is missing there?

@purism Battle for Wesnoth was shown in the video, but isn't in the repos when I browse on my dogwood device. Was the clip from the video from source code?

@normandc @linmob The app is on flathub. Flathub autobuilds arm64, so once flatpak/flathub was set up it was easy to run on both Librem 5 and pinephone.

@linmob There is no camera app installed yet, and cheese gets upset, so I suspect that is still TODO.

@linmob battery life is okay, though I haven't used it like a daily driver yet. I haven't measured, but I've used it constantly for a few hours before needing to recharge. The app is for tracking vehicle maintenance and some maintenance reminders. An initial version is on flathub.

@normandc @rakor I think the hardware could be a part of it(phosh feels a little smoother to me), but it could just as well be the software work purism is putting in. I like little details like haptics with phosh. I also like the fact it doesn't drain power when off like by braveheart pinephone. The case of librem5 is more textured than pinephone and I don't worry about it slipping. I also like the notification light better than pinephone because it's more subtle.

I've received my dogwood batch and am testing an app I've made for it. I'm currently finding it generally a better experience than what my pinephone has provided.

I executed some `sudo chmod` commands on my computer with the wrong folders. Now it won't boot. Guess I should check myself next time, but for now, I reinstall.

@PINE64 should I be worried if I still don't have my tracking email for my ?

There's a well-known African proverb: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." What Moxie's centralization talk misses is that the faults in early decentralized protocols came because dotcoms wanted to capture the market.
