Gemini PDA - Android / Magisk modules installation?
« on: May 12, 2018, 04:32:15 pm »
I ended up installing Steven Black's full combined hosts file, it seems to not impact performance at all so far. Only problem is that it isn't automatically updated. I might setup a Termux startup script or Tasker job to do an update automatically. Not sure if something like the plugin you linked would be better though, I may have to give it a try if this file doesn't seem to block enough ads.

Slightly off topic, have you had success with F-droid? I haven't tried any alternative APK sources yet, they sort of worry me a little bit.

Gemini PDA - Android / Command line style launcher
« on: May 12, 2018, 03:51:06 pm »
Just stumbled on this "Linux CLI Launcher", quite neat launcher / home screen that emulates a command line style interface. It provides a row of buttons of recently launched apps as well.

Gemini PDA - Android / How to open app drawer on launcher
« on: May 12, 2018, 01:38:05 pm »
There is an arrow icon in the bottom left corner of the default Launcher3 home screen which opens the full app drawer.

I use Apex Launcher which works pretty well keyboard, probably not the most optimized it could be though, pretty much just arrow key based navigation. Overall a better option than the built in one I think.

You might be able to use Tasker to set it automatically.

Gemini PDA - Android / Termux

The floating terminal plugin for Termux is also quite nice.

Gemini PDA - Android / Not showing root status
« on: May 11, 2018, 08:26:25 pm »
Make sure you have installed and completed setup of Magisk Manager which Planet seems to indicate is required part of the rooting process (but not included in the root image since it's a third party tool).

I have that installed and just tried Root Checker, it prompts for permission from Magisk and when granted confirmed that I have root.

Gemini PDA - Linux / Keyboard-friendly Linux desktop?
« on: May 10, 2018, 06:30:37 pm »
On my linux laptop I run XFCE4 + i3 with a pretty heavily customized setup. I think this would work well on a Gemini though I haven't tried to install it there yet.

Basically to make this work you just install i3 and XFCE from apt-get, then boot into i3 after adjusting the config.

My config for i3 is below if you want to try it. The XFCE part is the last few lines where it starts various services, the rest of the config just makes things more comfortable for me.

Should one expect the xkeyboard-config stuff to work in a chroot under Android? I am running Debian and Ubuntu under Linux Deploy which is pretty great except that it seems to have the same keyboard mapping issues, so I am missing forward slash and dash keys which are super critical obviously.

For what it’s worth, rooting was *very* easy.

You can install a third party launcher such as Apex Launcher which will let you remove the bar.

Gemini PDA - Hardware / Flash Tool not Flashing from W10 machine
« on: May 08, 2018, 09:23:27 pm »
That's really strange. You may want to email hello@planetcom.co.uk and see if they can help. It almost sounds like something wrong with the Fn key.

In android anyway hold Fn+Esc until the dialog pops up, then press Restart in that dialog.

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Tested microSD cards?
« on: May 08, 2018, 12:47:57 pm »
Quote from: Alius
I am (re-)using a samsung 128GB in my Gemini.  I had to reformat it as FAT32 for Gemini to recognize it in Android though.  I would've preferred to keep it formatted as exFAT, but I am so pleased with my Gemini I won't complain about that minor quibble.

Have you been able to verify that the full 128GB are available properly under Gemini when formatted as FAT32? I guess there's no real reason to suspect it wouldn't work but that's the main thing I am personally worried about is making sure it uses settings that will allow the full size of the card to be used.

It looks like you need to select the scatter file before doing the NVRAM backup.

Edit: Actually could just be the cable side. Make sure you connect via the port on the left of the Gemini, according to this thread.

Gemini PDA - Linux / Flashing Debian Installation
« on: May 07, 2018, 10:16:18 pm »
So far I have only flashed the rooted Android onto mine so I used the scatter file Gemini_Android_1_1_0_Scatter.txt from that ZIP file. Perhaps you have to do a backup using the Android one before using the Linux one to actually do the flash? Not sure...
