Gemini PDA - Linux / Linux phone or mini laptop?
« on: January 30, 2019, 06:04:33 am »
I'll admit i've voted for Linux phone at this time.., but i'm still using Android for now.

I'm debating on supporting the Cosmo, in which case that would become my daily driver & i'd probably then switch the Gemini to more of a Mini laptop style use..

I can see use cases for both options

Gemini PDA - Android / Microphone stopped working
« on: January 21, 2019, 04:25:20 am »
Forgotten that I hadn't posted a reply!

I'd been planning too & finally got my hands on a bluetooth dialler (I find it easier for calls than the Gemini), so the problem sort of went away. Only it still hasn't quite. I came to a conclusion that something had been muting my microphone in the system, as when I started using the dialler it somehow unmuted it.

But now i'm experiencing times where it's still muted & no one can hear me. I can hear them perfectly well. Best way round it is to reboot the Gemini, that at least gets things working quickly but could do with more investigation.

rasva: I appreciate the suggestions. I've been able to do some recording tests, which also don't receive audio properly. I've just not had any time to sit down & install another OS & test from there.

Gemini PDA - Android / Clock time display issues
« on: December 06, 2018, 03:32:56 am »
I've not really resolved things, but I can tell that the system clock is still correct.

Uninstalled & subsequently have reinstalled Screen On. Figured it wasn't affecting things.

I have found however, that if I turn the Gemini to get it to do a screen rotation, the clocks will correct themselves! Something at least..

Had a really annoying thing happen to me over the weekend (and of course it would happen at the worst time), but it seems my microphone has stopped working during phone calls.

I've tried turning the Gemini both ways up, but still no sound. I can hear the remote caller, but they can't hear a thing from me, not even it being very quiet (which was an older issue I used to have).

A reboot did not solve things either.

Using external headphones is working for now (actually it's been by preferred method for better quality), but there are times when you need to quickly take a call (and of course on Saturday I seemed to have a great many urgent ones to take!)

I should be running latest firmware. Non rooted, nothing else fancy except a few apps.

Any advice please?

I had 'Screen On' installed, so that the screen remained on (funny that) while I had it plugged in & charging on my desk.

As a test i've removed it, and the clocks have started to behave better, but not perfect yet.

I've yet to try the new firmware update, perhaps over the weekend.

Does anyone else have issues with the displayed time not being correct?

I can even have 3 different times on display, none of them up to date. That's the system time at the top right, the time displayed on the AppBar & a clock widget (Chronus I believe). The one that keeps up to date the most would happen to be the AppBar..

I would like to add, that the actual system time appears to be correct, it's only where it's displayed that it seems to be slow to update. This can persist between screen locks & application usage too.

Any advice appreciated! Thanks..

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / WebOS from LG on Gemini

If Halium is available it'd be possible to port LuneOS & potentially WebOS OSE in future too.

The LuneOS developers are working through the WebOS OSE release to see how aligned the two are.

It'd take someone with interest & time to port it!

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Electronic tickets, bording passes

It's an interesting question! I've used it okay on buses with scanners, but they're usually mounted above & you hold your phone below.

As i'll be travelling soon i'm interested to know more, has anyone passed through Manchester to see how theirs work (been a long time since I flew from there..) ?

Gemini PDA - Hardware / Bluetooth working to connect to car?
« on: July 04, 2018, 06:37:15 am »
Okay tried it last night, worked pretty quickly & immediately started playing the next track queued up.

I did get a lot of stutter though, perhaps as at that point i'd closed my Gemini.

Only had a few minutes to test, but it did seem to work okay.

Quote from: Mikael
I have problems as well with Bluetooth to a Volvo.

BT headset mode for making calls seems to work pretty well. The media-playing side often fails to connect.

If the Gemini is open and awake there seems to better chanses for it to work.
Changing song with the car-buttons seems to stop working if I close the gemini.

Anyone heard of some fix for this? It worked well with my old Blackberry priv.

Best regards

What model/year Volvo do you have?

I've got a pretty new one, 2017 V40, Gemini paired & calls work fine but haven't tried playing audio yet. I'll try to give it a go tonight on my way home..
