The Steam Deck will probably become available in February. A photo released by Valve shows units rolling out sporting KDE's Plasma desktop.

Your Phone Is Your Castle

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.
