-Cannot add new user so the device is very insecure


One of the first things I did after installing v3 was add a new user.

Then I changed the password of the default user "cosmo" (although I'll probably just delete that account once I get CoDi set up on my new user account).

Can use CoDi display as trackpad....

So, right now, pretty happy.....

But can you use CoDi for phone calls under Linux?

Hi LinuxGuy.
After reinstalling the new image, Yes, I can use Cosmo as phone answering and dialing from codi. I have also installed connman and cmst to enable internet data sim . It conflicts partially with network-manager ( installed from planet image ).  Sometimes  opening connman is slow. That is the  only problem.  Installed also ofono-scripts. If you have to open a video and audio you have to change in system settings output to speaker. Because it is set automatically to earphone ( because of telephony ).

I can use codi to call people from the missed-call-list. I cannot call anyone in contacts.
But why care - import of contacts does not work anyway, nor are contacts in Linux recogniced by the phone app. Android is outdated. But it works well as a toy phone for my 3 and 5 years old children ;-)

Greetings!

I'm new to the group so please bear with me if this is widely known/understood.

I was keenly interested in getting he keyboard backlight to work in Cosmo Linux Firmware V3, I asked the support at Planet Computers if there was any way to turn the Keyboard Backlight on, turns out there is (the response from the Planet Computers support folks follows:

In Linux you can adjust the keyboard backlight from the command line.

The following command will work:

“echo X > /proc/aw9524_led_proc”

Where X range from 40 (no light) to 45 (light intensity max).


Again if this is old news my sincere apologies, I hadn't come across the above info before and wanted to share it.

Hi folks!

I've been using this V3 linux implementation for a few weeks and have had pretty good luck with it.

I had a "USB C Hub, MCY 8-in-1 Type c hub Adapter with RJ45 Ethernet Port" laying around and it works well on port 1 (the left side).  I have used an ethernet connection for several days connected to that hub.  I haven't tested the hdmi yet but it shows it's there and I am confident that will work.

I had two items that I'd love to get some feedback on from anyone:

__USB to Serial adapters  -Do any work in this version of linux?
    I have tested a Prolific 2303 chipset based USB to Serial adapter as well as an FTDI Based USB to Serial Adapter -in both cases I know they adapters have the real chipsets vs a knock-off/grey market chip.  Both adapters are properly enumerated on the USB bus (lsusb) and have a device id etc but don't get as far as getting a usable /dev/TTYUSB*.  I'm thinking there may not be kernel support in this build for ftdi.sio for example or whatever the one is for the prolific2303.  Has anyone had any experience with USB to Serial on this build with the Cosmo?  I'm thinking I'm going to have to do this the hard way unless I've missed something.

__ofono-scripts: does anyone have one of these that works well for Google Fi in the US?  I have a SIM on the way from google and am hopeful ill be able to pull what's needed off the SIM for the script automagically but it never is that easy it seems ;-).

Thanks for your time!

Apologies for the late response on this one, I spend most of my time in UBPorts these days. 
This link has a solution:

Hi LinuxGuy.
After reinstalling the new image,

But if I reinstall the whole image (instead of apt update etc.) I will loose my complet configuration, right? Reflashed manually v15 but calling via codi still doesnt work, Touchpad works...
Thanks for a hint
