I'll follow your lead and keep my current compilation. If you do recompile a future kernel, I'll be very interested to know your thinking.

Jake

OK. Thank you. I will let you know.

@cam1965--I have put holds on cosmo kernel, etc to keep my compiled kernel first and foremost.

But I now see that there's an updated kernel available. Have you recompiled it? Or are you content with your present kernel?

Jake
Hi.
I am content with my compiled kernel. And I also have   marked  ( apt-mark hold ) to not update   kernel and kernel-headers. Because my kernel has a lot of modules that the  planet kernel don´t have.

You can see the changes  in

https://github.com/gemian/cosmo-linux-kernel-4.4

So, if there is a change that is important to you, you can recompile the kernel again.

Very cool!

How do you like UB Ports vs the other linux options available to us?

Mark

UB Ports is a good operating system. The interface is very good. Usability too. It's very polished. But Debian for me is better: much more apps and more versatile. But I must admit I use Android most of the time, because the camera works with all apps and I can also use my banking app. Android is also based on Linux.

Nice one, thanks for sharing. 
That's my job for the weekend sorted. 
Well done Galo!!! 
 :)

OK.
To increase the dpi

create a file . Xdefaults inside ~/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/container-name/
and set and set Xft.dpi:300 inside it .

cd ~/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/container-name/      change container-name  with your container name.

touch .Xdefaults
echo 'Xft.dpi:300' >> .Xdefaults

Libreoffice writer has a bug.
The first time you start the app, you can touch the menu items correctly. ( at least most of them )
After the second time you cannot access the menu and other functions correctly.
You may have to delete your profile always before start libreoffice writer.
cd .local/share/libertine-container/user-data/xenial/.config/libreoffice/4
rm -rf user

( xenial is the name of my container )

The calc and other libreoffice app are working correctly. ( for most icons ).

After changing the dpi, some icons will not work correctly because the position is changed, for example font color.


Good luck !

Hi.
Libreoffice is only  installed with ssh.
Please see :
https://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/userguide/advanceduse/ssh.html
https://askubuntu.com/questions/866156/how-to-install-libreoffice-on-ubuntu-touch

After enabling ssh, I have installed the container with libertine and then libreoffice.
You need to restart ubuntu touch after all.
But libreoffice  is too small to read.
I will attach photos.
Good luck !

I could not dial and  answer calls using  codi. Only with dialer-app.
You should be able to answer calls with the CoDi, it doesn't show the caller name, just the number, (not ideal, and I think it also did this for some callers under rooted android), but it should still allow you to dial or answer. 

Libertine does not work to install libreoffice.
Thanks for the heads up, I'll stop trying to install it on mine :)

Ubuntu touch is fine, but Debian to me is a better choice for now.
Have fun with Debian, I was using it for a while till sms got sorted on UT, (thanks to 'NotKit' I think).  It's a nice OS and it sounds like it meets your use case better than UT.  I just find the user interface on UT a bit easier on the eyes, or maybe I just need new reading glasses.    8)

You are correct.
After reinstalling the new version ( artifacts-2021.06.09.zip ) and removing previous configurations from the older version  that I have installed ( user-data and system-data ) I can dial and answer calls from codi.
Also in terminal ( that works with CTRL + ALT + DEL ) I  have created an script to change the output of the sound to speakers .
( the command is : pacmd set-sink-port 0 output-speaker ).
You can see the active pot using the command :
pacmd list |grep "active port"
The results are :
active port: <output-speaker>
active port: <input-builtin_mic>


Thank you  again.

artifacts.zip has only 24MB in size.
I'm having the same problem following my own instructions.   ???
Either I'm missing something or something has changed. 
I've previously used this link to download the flashable zip: 
https://gitlab.com/ubports/community-ports/android9/planet-cosmocom/planet-cosmocom/-/pipelines
I lifted it from the original instruction: 
https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?topic=36413.0
It should extract a folder called 'out', containing 'boot.img' and 'rootfs.img'
I've got a copy of pipeline #284408889 sitting on my desktop, extracted it's about 3GB. 
I don't know what's going on here, I'll see if I can figure out where we're going wrong.
I have installed ubuntu touch. Downloaded it from https://sempria.de:8203/cosmo/  ( see the post above from sven1999 : Thanks  sven1999)
 Calls , sms, camera are working.
I could not dial and  answer calls using  codi. Only with dialer-app.
Libertine does not work to install libreoffice.
And the sound output to speaker only works after I plug and remove an earphone.
I have changed a file cosmo ( keyboard layout ) to have accents and make sound and brightness work with fn keys.
Also I created an script to enable keyboard backlight on and off.
Ubuntu touch is fine, but Debian to me is a better choice for now.
Thank you to all people in this forum.

There seems to be a limit of 2 downloadable files on this page. (From GitLab or from the maintainers?) This was a problem before. See https://gitlab.com/ubports/community-ports/android9/planet-cosmocom/planet-cosmocom/-/issues/2 for a report and a link to some backup copies.
Thank you so much !

Hey, thanks for the instructions. Great to see those. I'm away from home for a few days, but I'll give it a go when I get back and have my desktop available.
Is Ubuntu Touch now your daily driver? How is the battery life?

Hi .
I am intrigued.
artifacts.zip has only 24MB in size.
This is too small for an Operating system, unless it will download files when installing. Or it will use the files from Debian install.
When I unzip the file and extracted the contents as showed  in the photo attached , there is no rootfs.img
I think I will have to create an image of the contents of system and rename it to ubuntu.img.
Can you please confirm the contents of rootfs.img (ubuntu.img ) ?
Thank you so  much.

Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Re: Can't download Linux for Cosmo
« on: July 11, 2021, 07:29:26 am »
It seems links to Linux for Cosmo installers on official page are broken. When I try to download them, nothing happens.

The link is OK .
Please read the instructions before install.

http://support.planetcom.co.uk/download/cosmo-customos-installer-v4.zip

Good Luck .

Great work. Congratulations.

I'm a big fan of Stretch on the Gemini. I have my install working about as well as it can, all key-stroked, no mouse needed.

Jake
👍

Yes, it is really very good.

13
That's amazing. I would've thought the two OSs would be completely different, no shared files.

And it's so strange the Kali system.img sort-of worked but the the recopy of the original system.img brought back the calling, etc.

So to clarify: you're running Debian Stretch (9) with all phone capability?

Well done,
Jake

Yes, phone capabilities are working.
You have to wait a little after the login. You can run dialer-app to see if the operator is reconized. It takes about a minute.
For data, you have to enable Mobile Data in the Mobile tab from cmst. And run in /usr/share/ofono/scripts :  ./activate-context 1 ( in my case 1 is the internet profile ). You  must  have ofono-scripts installed.
Please, upgrade the kernel and kernel-headers and you can see  that  most of the modules are pre compiled . I think you can use your dongle usb modem and  your wifi external adapter too.( please use the left port usb, because some devices only work in this port). My tv dongle works in both usb  ports but my external web camera only in the left port with guvcview and vlc . In the right usb port only with xawtv . I think I deleted my configuration files in the past because of this. When you upgrade the kernel, remember to do this command  as below:
 dd if=/usr/share/kernel/linux-bot.img of=/dev/disk/by-partlabel/(your boot partition, in my case boot2).
I am using dual boot:  android 7 (rooted )  and debian. Also twrp installed.  Android 8 has some problems described in this forum and confirmed by me.
Note : when I copied system.img I didn´t use sudo or root permissions to copy to and from /data.
First I have copied the system.img from the kali mounted image ( in my PC ) to an external sd card. Then copied the system.img ( from sd card ) to gemini home directory.
Good Luck !

Hi.
After a long time without using gemini, I decided to reinstall linux on it.
But dialer-app is not working. No sound on voice calls. It rings and I can answer a call with the silver button. But only this. No sound on conversations.
I remember in the past ( DEBIAN TP first version ) it was working.
I think the problem is /data/system.img.
I have downloaded the previous first version and extracted the system.img  to /data/
So as described in the old wiki ( not available now ).
But from memory:
wget https://gemian.thinkglobally.org/system.img.delta
sudo apt-get install xdelta3
xdelta3 -d -s /data/system.img system.img.delta system.img
sudo cp system.img /data/system.img

The problem is that the file from wget https://gemian.thinkglobally.org/system.img.delta is wrong or it is not working correctly.
The system.img from first version seems to be correct
So I can't do this test.
Please if someone has this file , let me know.
When I did the command  xdelta3 -d -s /data/system.img system.img.delta system.img I got an error
xelta3: not a VCDIFF input : XD3_INVALID_INPUT

Thank you.

EDIT : SOLVED.

I saw this :

https://github.com/gemian/gemini-keyboard-apps/wiki/UpdateAndroidSystemLXCImage

So I downloaded the firmware image  of KALI linux ( from  Planet site ) and discovered that the md5sum of the correct system.img is the same of the link above  ( New md5 output after update: 1b6f07d345cbb9fadca562e788375515 ).

So I have extracted  kali.zip  and mounted linux.img .
First  I made a backup of system.img . ( cp /data/system.img to somewhere )
Then I removed the system.img from /data.
I copied the system.img (from kali ) to /data.
I did a Reboot.
But the phone didn´t work and neither the camera-app.
So, I copied the backup of  system.img to /data ( overwriting the system.img from kali ).
I rebooted linux again.
And for my surprise the phone was working . The camera-app too ( of course ).
I really don´t know. Maybe when booting with  kali system.img in /data some configuration was changed in debian.
The most important is that now everything is working.

Gemini PDA - Linux / Re: Ubuntu Touch on gemini

unfortunately it looks like there was no real progress on getting UT to run on Gemini or Cosmo afaict.
I can't speak for the Gemini, but as far as the Cosmo goes it seems to be coming along.
