    • I've followed these instructions but the phone always boots back into Ubuntu Touch. Do you need to start with the stock rom?
    • Mine arrived today, in the US. Ordered from the website.
    • I cannot agree more with the neofetch show off part, nicely put @claude0001. And actually I am afraid that many users of LXC on SFOS or other systems have felt overwhelmed by the extra work needed to configure their DE, or just don't see how much of a game changer it can be, and they end up not using it much. I have a VERY configured LXC container from my Pro1 that I can use and attach on my Pro1x, but so far I haven't been able to start X on it. It is a bit oudated and there's probably something that is conflicting, I have yet to identify what the issue is because I can start X in newly created containers just fine. I was very dependent on it on the Pro1, really looking forward to making it work on Pro1x. I did everything in that container, every day since early 2020, except calls and sms.
    • This, 100%. Imho, configuring your 'containered' (desktop) GNU/Linux distro in a way to make best use of the small (touch-)screen is a large part of the work. That is, if you want to actually use the system productively rather than just show-off your neofetch output online to your friends once ...  😉 . Trying to operate applications designed for desktop workstations via a touch interface can be frustrating even on a full-size display. On a small handheld touch-screen, the experience can quickly become infuriating, unless given some significant GUI customization. In my setup (based on LineageOS, but that does not matter here) I solved this pragmatically by running the X11 server of my desktop Linux distro inside XRDP. That way, the container'ed GNU/Linux desktop can be accessed via remote-desktop apps running on the host OS (Lineage, Sailfish, etc.). Such apps typically allow for emulation of a virtual mouse pointer, with the Pro1(X)'s screen acting as touch pad. This saves you from having to hit minuscule buttons with your fingertips. Also things like pinch-to-zoom are natively implemented in most smartphone RDP clients. Similar results can in principle be obtained via VNC. I prefer XRDP, as it also does automatic session management in your GNU/Linux OS for you. The downside is that, because of the additional remote-desktop layer (requiring encoding and decoding of the framebuffer) graphics performance is significantly worse compared to using an X11-server that runs natively on the host OS (as proposed by @matf).
    • My Pro1 is running happily again with a brand new display I finally got from FxTec, but thanks anyway! 🙂
