Anyone wanna help me test a new maintenance release of the @ubports Installer? No fancy new features, but some substantial (and much needed) updates to our self-maintained libraries, so tests on the different platforms would be appreciated!
@Truck @ubports Cool, hope you enjoy the device! Unfortunately, the installer does not support the PinePhone, so you can't test with that ;) But fortunately for you, the UBports edition comes with Ubuntu Touch pre-installed, AND it's super easy to flash the PinePhone's SD card with tools you're probably already familiar with, like etcher for example.
If you want to help, this is where to get started: https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/issues/952
"soon" meaning "gosh I'd love to do something other than work in the next 3 months but um no that is likely NOT happening"
(additionally, a bit concerned that ubports mastodon/fediverse presence is... almost nonexistent? Any idea of ubports folks on the 'verse other than yourself?)
I PROBABLY am not the target audience, but then, I'll probably have ubports on my emmc - and use chunks of it for 'daily use' when not doing minimalistic things (:
For personal accounts, there's a couple fun people from the #UBports community, like @ernmander, @fla, @diogo, @tcarrondo, @krille, @Jonius, and many more who will probably be disappointed that i forgot to mention them :D
I'll be ... adding folks... maybe I need a separate instance to just track this project (:
I'm pretty impressed with ubports, and will probably end up using it as the main instance, at least if I can't get sailfish to work. (Have had a Jolla phone - 2 of them - and am running Sailfish now on an xperia - but want a _real_ device, and well, ok, while I can sort of "walk over to their office and yell at their door until they tell me to go away" that is not ENTIRELY the best thing (:
Also do we have a #matrix channel? I have asked a few times but haven't found it.
(Also dealing with constant work crisis so... "brain failures" are happening too often.)
