#208 Surf: Cannot visit any pages other than Google and Duckduckgo 3 months ago

Comment by ~emulti on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

Pardon my ignorance but I can't find out how to downgrade a package in PMOS. webkit2gtk appears not listed in https://pkgs.postmarketos.org (or the package filter is broken?) but 2.30.5-r0 is in the repos.

Where are older versions hosted, or do I need to build from source?

#213 "sudo apk upgrade" fails on fresh 1.3.0 image 3 months ago

Comment by ~emulti on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

Confirmed after reinstall caused by #214, and 'fixed' in same manner. But I don't understand why apk didn't just install u-boot-tools as part of the first attempt.

#214 sxmo-image-builder: MAY PREVENT BOOTING - apk upgrade fails - boot partition too small 3 months ago

Comment by ~emulti on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

confirmed- led to unbootable system for me and had to re-flash. Is it possible to use Jumpdrive to mount the partitions over usb network and resize them from a PC?

#193 DPI setting and UI size- a suggestion 3 months ago

Comment by ~emulti on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

Thank you ~tetrakist for creating the patches. Now I see how you handle the newly-created files. If others want to test, I am using font size in svkbd config.h of fontsize=7 and DejaVu Sans:bold:size=10

And Dmenu font size in xresources_dmenu.xr of Monospace-12 (or Sans-12 to get more characters per line in RSS script, for example)

In Dwm config.h I am using

    "sans size=9", /* PP default start index*/

and

  static const char dmenufont[]     =    "Sans:size=12";

This gives a better font size/spacing match to the Firefox chrome UI fonts just below the status bar, and more readable characters per line on the status bar for page titles etc. I am not clear whether the dmenufont[] value is overridden by the Xresources_dmenu.xr setting and I haven't figured out how to adjust the size of Dmenu 'icon' characters from nerd-fonts yet.

The extra blank lines I put by mistake in 90-monitor.conf and xresources_xft..xr have crept through into the patches, sorry. The comment line in 90-monitor.conf should/could read

# Technically should be: DisplaySize 68 136, but this reduces menu bar cropping on narrow screen

#195 DWM Multikey timer settings in dwm.c 3 months ago

Ticket created by ~emulti on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

I found I often fail to double-press the side buttons for the appropriate function, such as double-press Power key for st. I often end up with single-press or triple-press instead. I have seen this referenced in online reviews of SXMO too. Maybe I am getting old and my reflexes are shot...

I found that by increasing the timer settings (around line 305) as follows in dwm.c I am able to double-press reliably:

#define KEYPRESS_MS_THRESHOLD 250
#define KEYHOLD_MS_THRESHOLD 800

Maybe this change can be considered/tested by others?

#194 Xcalc Xresources not used 3 months ago

Comment by ~emulti on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

To make the symbols for square root, pi and division appear correctly in xcalc, install the font-adobe-100dpi package, and append the following lines to xresources _xcalc.xr:

xcalc*ti.button3.font: -adobe-symbol-*-*-*-*-*-240-100-100-*-*-*-*
xcalc*ti.button21.font: -adobe-symbol-*-*-*-*-*-240-100-100-*-*-*-*
xcalc*ti.button35.font: -adobe-symbol-*-*-*-*-*-240-100-100-*-*-*-*

and remove or comment with '!' the xcalc*ti.button??.label lines above

Font size was set in the previous line to xcalcfont: --terminus-----48-------*

Logout/login is needed to load the modified Xresources. on the previous line. This gives OK font sizes for me with Xorg dpi set to 192 as in Ticket #193
