  1. I like the shifted keyboard! Especially on Sailfish since there is no toolbar on the right of the screen (in landscape), so having hands properly centred on the keyboard is great. I'll make an opinion on unshifted when I get my Pro1x, but I really hope they take the community feedback/suggestions into account when placing / and ? keys. :/
  2. You're implying I suggested it. I did not, I think I even wrote the opposite, and I didn't detail how to do it either. What I did say is there is no technical/hardware limitation to running Alien Dalvik and other paid Sailfish X software on a Pro1, as was also posted by others on Twitter, including a former Jolla employee. However I made it clear that there are commercial and legal limitations (i.e., the licence cannot be purchased and flashed to anything else than an official device, which in turns creates technical barriers), this is not a secret in any way. I encouraged buying a licenc
  3. Thanks for the details. I can confirm I have write permissions on my host's $HOME with no issue, and I think I could also mount the host's / and write there. It is very convenient for me, even though I also kept a separate guest's $HOME for things I want to keep separated.
  4. Just wanted to add that there are also some native us-intl xkb variants (with or without dead keys) coming pre-configured on SailfishOS.
  5. Thanks for sharing your setup too, it looks very interesting and, being running in Android, it undoubtedly can be used by many more people than any Sailfish solution! I'm very happy to hear about users using their device as a desktop UMPC. 1. You two know much more than I do about hardware acceleration and how it works under the hood, to me this is just like trying to understand those green symbols falling down in the matrix, so I won't try to reply accurately to that question. All I can say is the developer of sailfish-containers told me that, theoretically, HW acceleration in LXC could
  6. I'm not sure I understood what you meant about qwertz. Can you please elaborate @EskeRahn? Is that related to not all keys having a secondary layer for a second colour? I guess if keys are redone to change the layout, it's not changing much to the production to change which keys get a secondary layer in the first place. Their plans for Scandic already shows new keys with secondary colour compared to what we currently have on Pro1 or in other Pro1x layouts (N and K for instance). The issue would most likely be to use the previously produced keypads, to avoid wasting parts.
  7. I have completed the draft on the gist with an additional layout with only two colours, and larger labels to make it more realistic considering what we currently have on the Pro1. I also added that our previous us-intl layouts were partly incorrect, because some keys had labels that should not exist, there were a couple duplicates, and also those layouts were showing a mix of third-level and fourth-level characters. This is an issue because our colour hint suggests that AltGr produces these characters, not Shift + AltGr. Mixing them makes it non standard and hard to follow, even if it is
  8. I hope you get some news soon, posting to keep this thread up in the list.
  9. The Discord channel would probably be the best way to ask more info, since I believe this is where most people are. There are also multiple Telegram channels, of which t.me/sfos_user_pro1 is probably the most relevant in your case.
  10. I can confirm Aurora and Whatsapp would work on a Pro1 running SFOS but you would need rpms from a XA2 (meaning license + device) and it wouldn't be legal. However if you purchase a XA2 license alone and ask the community it would at least be close to morally acceptable (in my opinion, but who am I to tell something illegal is morally acceptable? D:).
  11. LXC is such a good combination with the Pro¹ that it might be worth a video on the official forum, even though I'm not very active here: - LBRY for good connections (big file): https://open.lbry.com/@Kab:7/LXC_sailfishos_Pro1:b?r=BZ8k2XPpJvbZhRttC15UQs34pYd2SS97 - Youtube for slower connections: https://youtu.be/-dgD5jci8Dk DESCRIPTION Sorry for the annoying accent. This is an overview of full desktop Linux distributions running as LXC containers in SailfishOS, on a F(x)tec Pro1 qwerty slider phone. If not interested in Sailfish itself, jump to 06'23" f

    Sailfish OS for 2021

    I don't mean to self promote, the following guide it is not necessarily better than the guide on the forum, but it should be more comprehensive and provides a link to the Sailfish CI images: https://gist.github.com/Kabouik/f77539b3eb6a77b032d2fa827271b81d
  13. Works for me. At this point I think what would determine whether we use the most minimal symbols or those more visually complex with corners or bars is whether we enclose them between brackets or not. Note that we could also just write "Fn" on the top right corner of the modifier key, and then show those symbols on their respective top right corner too, I may be equally clear that Fn is needed to use those functions. While AltGr would be in a distinct colour similar to us-intl symbols. Of course for layouts with no us-intl symbol labels, the issue vanishes because only two label colours a
  14. Yeah I would discard those ⇤ and ⇥ from the potential candidates too.
  15. Note that the home and end symbols you selected don't have the same bar length (I couldn't find any long bottom bar), so if we go with the bar, we'd better use the short ones for both keys.
