I can’t install
librem5-goodies as described in the Wiki https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/community-wiki/-/wikis/Tips-&-Tricks with
sudo apt install librem5-goodies, it says ‘not found’. Any hints?
I can’t install
sudo apt update first?
I see that
apt search goodies returns a bunch of applications, one of which is
librem5-goodies, from the amber-phone repo.
Are the included sripts perhaps installed on your phone as separate apps already?
Scale the Screen
Or are you maybe already on Byzantium?
apt search goodies | grep librem does not show anything. The mentioned apps I do not see installed. And yes, I did
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade before as described in the Wiki.
Byzantium, how could I check this?
In the Software store app, click the “hamburger” menu and then “Software Repositories” to see what’s installed.
You can also find the package here: https://repo.pureos.net/pureos/pool/main/libr/
Not sure why it doesn’t appear in your search.

Maybe their functionalities are already incorporated into other applications…? Check
Contacts for an import option, for instance.
librem5-goodies isn’t available in byzantium yet - there are some dependencies to bring over first.
OK, but how could I load contacts? Is the possible with evolution like in the Ubuntu:
11. Import and export of Contacts Contacts can be imported from vCard files: $ syncevolution --import test.vcf backend=evolution-contacts #0: pas-id-552B785D00000008 see also: http://askubuntu.com/a/372342 If you have many vcf files, put them in a directory and pass the directory name as the --import argument.
syncevolution is exactly the missing dependency we’re working on bringing back to byzantium: https://source.puri.sm/librem5-apps/syncevolution/-/issues/1
Wouldn’t it be better to ship the librem5-goodies as separate packages? At the moment, I would like to be able to make screenshots. I have no need for Contacts importer, because I use Nextcloud.
For everyone looking for a quick workaround this issue check this post:
Separating the scripts would mean creating and maintaining deb packages for all of them. This package was created as a place to put temporary helper bash scripts in one place to make it simpler to maintain.
If all goes well the package
librem5-goodies should be in byzantium in less than 2 weeks.
Until then, if you really want, you can download these files:
move them to the respective directories and install
grim to have the screenshot script.
librem5-goodies is now in the
landing repository. Meaning that in the next 6 days it should be available in PureOS Byzantium.
The new version includes:
- contacts importer script
- screenshot script
- an app to make recordings of the librem 5 screen
The scale the screen script was removed because
phosh now supports scaling the screen from:
Settings > Displays (no need to have a script for it if it is supported).
Thanks a lot to put back syncevolution because it’s essential in order to syncrhonized my CardDav adressbook and CalDav calendars from my Synology NAS server.
librem5-goodies are now in PureOS Byzantium.
FYI, I see it with apt-get, but not in the software store app.
this is a bug, thanks for reporting
