Cosmo Communicator - Linux / Re: Will Cosmo/Linux Allow 3rd-party WIFI Adapter?

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.

Cosmo Communicator - CoDi / Resetting Codi?
« Last post by Vistaus on July 29, 2021, 11:25:43 am »
For some reason, Codi doesn't work anymore. I'm trying to reset it, but Cover Display Assistant keeps saying “Resetting cover display…” indefinetely. I also tried to manually re-flash the firmware, but after selecting the files, the app crashes.

Is there any other way to reset it properly?

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Re: Can't Turn On Mobile Data

Hi gymbo,

Thank you for your help!

Think problem must have been some issue with settings getting changed...

I found a setting that did not seem right. Changed it back to what I thought was correct and Voila! I could turn on mobile data again!

How do you like UB Ports vs the other linux options available to us?
Personally, I initially backed the Cosmo for the possibility of SailFish, to replace my Jolla.  I think different people have different reasons.  Since it arrived I've tried Android, Debian, and settled on UT, (for the time being anyway :) ). 
It's nice to have a choice isn't it.

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
Super, I've just got around to setting up ssh and a Libertine container and installed LibreOffice, pretty painless following those instructions. 

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
Tweaked the DPI as per your further instruction, just had a quick play with Calc, looks pretty good. 

Even though I have previously stated, (convinced myself), that I don't need any 'Office' apps, this will be very useful. 

Thanks for sharing, very much appreciated.

Cosmo Communicator - Android / Re: Can't Turn On Mobile Data
« Last post by gymbo on July 26, 2021, 09:40:15 pm »
Hi,

Not sure what's happened, but when I tap on the Mobile Data button nothing happens.

In Settings, I clicked on 'Turn On' Mobile Data, but nothing happens..

Can anyone please advise?

Not good situation.....

Thanks,

Mark

Nothing happens, as in "the setting doesn't take", or "I don't get mobile data connection"?? If it is the former, I REALLY don't know how to help. But if it is the latter, I think my Cosmo also has suffered from something similar.

In my case the settings for the access-point got "corrupted" somehow, and I needed to go in and manually change it "back" to the correct settings. As my mobile-provider mostly (and almost exclusively...) want to configure that automatically, it is difficult to find the correct settings to fill in yourself. (And it might be possible to get it set up with the link/SMS they want you to set it up with too...)

(Actually, I'm not sure that the settings got "corrupted" on my Cosmo, I'm not sure it has happened more than once for my Cosmo, and the last time, and possibly only time, it happened, it probably had to do with the name-change of my provider, and they then, naturally, changed the name of, and some of the settings for, the access-point, to reflect the name-change. So I only had OUTDATED settings, probably not corrupted...)

But could be a good place to start looking anyway...

(You also need to have the right/correct sim-slot connected to the data-connection...)

Hope this was of some help, otherwise I don't think I can contribute much :'(
