Librem 5 media (photos and videos)


Everyone thinking of canceling their order for the Librem 5 should first watch Hackersgame’s video “Librem 5 | In Less Than a Year”.

I have been seeing so much progress in the Librem 5 Qemu images, in the upstream commits in the Linux kernel and GTK/GNOME stack, and in the Librem 5 code repo, that I simply can’t understand why so many people are still expressing doubt about whether Purism will produce a working Linux smartphone.

I was kind of skeptical two years ago when I first read that Purism had selected GTK/GNOME, because it was so much farther behind Qt/KDE Plasma Mobile and UBports for mobile devices, but I am now seeing Purism turning GTK/GNOME/Phosh into a viable mobile platform. After seeing how libhandy and the GNOME apps will work in the Librem 5, I now believe that Purism made the right decision, because we will eventually have true convergence and be able to run GTK applications on any type of device.


I prefer KDE/Plasma too and hope that with the coming of the rolling release it will better supported. But maybe it is good to have alternative choices on the librem. That has, as far as I know no Andriod-phone or Iphone.


PODcast with TODD


Oh my GOD it’s a POD with TODD :slight_smile:


anybody who has read through your more LENGTHY posts will find little here but AV is easier to follow for some people … but not to sediment any real information …

i encourage everybody who is interested in making an informed opinion about the Purism ethos and their products to read through your posts or at least check out your profile … and decide for themselves … at some point


Hmm… I’m actually not able to watch this video. Youtube tells me “Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available”.


yes, doesn’t work in epiphany for me (i don’t have gst-h265 codec) but works in ff


Doesn’t work in Firefox for me. I guess I didn’t want to watch it anyway.


You miss nothing worth the audio version :sunglasses:


The other links don’t work either.

[edit] Ok, just needed to install ffmpeg. All good now.


or stream it through VLC ?


i believe it would be much more useful to just be able to download a transcript in the speakers tongue directly using


using the CLI under gnu/linux.
