Applications

Many of the dialogs do not fit on the screen and some (essential) controls are out of reach. It would be nice to be able to pan each dialog, or add scrollbars, or create a larger virtual screen that can be panned so that most existing ported Linux programs can actually be used.

  • Change resolution in Settings (https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/issues/140)
  • Option to change window size to full screen/fit screen. Maybe graphical version of x, maximize. Using xdotool as workaround, but messy. Landscape command currently playing with: x=${xdotool search – onlyvisible – name Name-of-App) && xdotool windowsize $x 725 270 && xdotool window move $x 0 50
  • A way to kill the main window, especially when input is not responsive and one cannot click the “application drawer” icon, a bit like xkill? (maybe using hardware buttons, long-presses or double/triple-presses)

  • Don't enter airplane mode every time wifi is turned off
  • Fix hiss/whine noise present whenever audio hardware is activated
  • Better terminal keyboard layout, with a ctrl key Added to squeekboard
  • showing volume box popup on screen when using hardware volume keys, similar to desktop gnome (https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/issues/33)
