I'm sure I'm missing something very simple somewhere but in Linux (Debian running in UserLAnd) I have 2 keys not mapped correctly. They are / and £ which both currently produce ? as does ? so not sure if that means don't know what to return or all 3 are mapped to ?

£ isn't too crucial for how I intend to use my Linux environment but trying to work in CLI without a forward slash is lets say 'interesting'!

Anyone able to point me in the right direction please?

I've had this issue on other Android devices so it's not a Gemini issue as such but has anyone found a way to get the WiFi to actually turn off completely when you switch it off? Mine usually shows as being on in the battery usage more settings even when it is showing off every where else?. If I reboot my device while WiFi is off this normally corrects until next random time.

I've done all the usuals, turned WiFi scanning off and even setting the WiFi off while asleep function was helping for a while but it's gone back to the old behaviour. It really shouldn't be this difficult!!

I'm messing around with GNURoot debian to try and satisfy my (small) Linux requirements from my Gemini rather than dual booting. I am struggling with a couple of issues making life difficult at the moment.

1. The keyboard is fine with the exception of the forward slash / This comes a ? as does the ? key. Trying to work in Linux without / is like trying to juggle with both hands tied behind your back!

2. I don't seem to be able to set the execute permission for scripts. chmod +x is accepted without error but the permission remains unset. Is this an issue with overall permissions within the Android file system?

3. I can't resize XTerm or UXTerm font size. To get a size I can see anything at all in XTerm makes everything else gigantic and unusable. LXTerminal does't want to run. Is there another terminal someone can recommend that is usable in GNURoot debian?

4. And a minor one, the clock is set to UTC and any attempts to open time and date settings calls a permission error.

Any help greatly appreciated because using a mouse in this environment seems extremely usable as a make do replacement for my laptop while out and about while retaining all the phone and Android functionality for my communication needs that dual booting would hinder.

As requested by a couple of people I have knocked up a rudimentary torch app for the Gemini called GeminiTorch. It has basic functionality to light all 5 LEDs white. It's not very bright but the best available. It will cancel GeminiLED notifications at this stage but at next release I will put a torch function in that app. Apk is at https://github.com/graynada/GeminiTorch/releases/tag/v1.0

Does anyone else have and know how to overcome this Gemini 'feature'? If I press any character key while on the home screen Google Search pops up with that charter in the search bar. This invariably leads to GS being on when I first open the device to some inadvertent button pressing by me and/or the screen. Does anyone know how to turn off this feature as on the very rare occasions I would need it I'm very happy to go to the very considerable trouble of opening my browser to do a Google search?
