Ask me any app - I will show it

Thank you for doing this!
I’d like to see if CHIRP (amateur radio programming software) runs. Information below:

And if you have time, xastir:

Thanks again!

That’s a good question, should be interesting to know if theme can be changed, the default theme on librem is awfull

As such, on the desktop, it supports themes. I would expect the same on L5.

Thank you! I uploaded a new video with the stated option - that makes the app perfectly matching the screen and really promesing! I think we have found our navigation app :smiley:


Cool to see CHIRP working!

Yeah!! I have no reason to believe the USB port won’t work for programming - excited to see how it works in the flesh.

will love to see if boinc is working also steam (csgo and other games) just for fun

Not sure if you have tried, but can you try to run the Exodus wallet?

It’s just that I have the notion that the features of that password safe doesn’t satisfy my needs. Which APT package is it? Is it “passwordsafe”? Which seems to be

Thanks anyway. :slight_smile:

It’s not from qemu, but it’s related from Guadec:

in the Librem5 image (qemu) i dont see an application for mail :roll_eyes:

what application should I use? Thunderbird

Let’s wait and see what is available at release. Time will tell.

You are right, Signal desktop currently only supports amd64, but not armhf/arm64 ( or i386 (, but it still should work in the mentioned qemu environment, if the system has been compiled for amd64.

Thank you for doing this. What about Brave browser, Bitwarden password manager and Authy passcode generator?

It’s nice to see some apps running on future OS that will be shipped on librem 5. What about showing us anki? Thanks!

How about the Signal message app since I believe it is on Mint os? That would be nice to have. I am on Samsung tablet so don’t have the link. If needed let me know and it will get.

Last I checked, the Signal Desktop clients still require an Android or iOS client to function. The desktop clients are thus not fully standalone. In principle, you could install it on the Librem 5 (assuming there is an ARM version?), and if you first sync it with an Android/iOS client, then you could use it on the Librem 5. But it would be dependent on the Android/iOS phone, and also, I don’t think the UI would scale properly for the Librem 5 screen.

Thanks for the followup. Too bad! I just assumed it was a linux based rewritten for desk top. Very bad to asume. I should have checked first.

Can we please close this thread. There are real phones in the meanwhile, so I don’t see much sense in testing apps from the qemu image anymore.
