Hi,

I have installed Debian provided by Planet Computers last night but unfortunately I can’t get the Bluetooth on to connect my mouse. Am I the only one to have this issue?

Another question: I hate KDE. Is it possible to install Gnome pour any other graphical environment ?

Thanks

Usually with debian on any device with correctly configured apt sources you should be able to install any graphical environment. Just use you favorite package manager. I myself am not fond of either kde or gnome, I think suckless should work the best

This version of Linux we get is more of a proof of concept than an actual usable OS. It's more like "see! we have linux working on our phone" thing. From my understanding, it's missing drivers for a lot of hardware. I do not recommend using it extensively because the UI can burn images on our OLED screen. At this stage, I don't see the battery management turning off the screen on it's own. The screen is on even if you close the phone.

I thought only the cover display is OLED? The cover display does not work at all with Debian currently.

It is indeed an issue that Debian can't be properly suspended at the moment, but I'm using Debian quite happily for hacking a bit Elixir at the moment.

Hey, have you tried the following which worked for my Debian on Gemini?

Sounds like an uphill battle, good luck.

I hope not. Given the way the gemini linux development went I think that the guys working on the kernel and gemian should be able to get it all running. Just going to take time. We need Planet to release the new boot loader which will allow the modem to be accessible by the kernel which should mean bt and the phone modem will accessible.

Wait, only the CoDi is OLED? The black level looks pretty good. Well, I guess I don't have to worry about burning images on it anymore.
But how such a small AMOLED on the CoDi consumes so much battery? It is insane.

I think the display itself consumes almost no battery. But the CoDi is a computer on its own. I do not know the details about the software on it but if regulary polls the main computer for events then this could explain the battery usage. The good news is that this software can be optimized so Planet can supply us with less battery hungry updates for the CoDi software.
