List of Apps that fit and function well [Post them here.]

We also maintain a similar page here although it’s more focused on applications explicitly in PureOS and doesn’t include flatpaks:

Awesome…and I forgot that was there. I’ll integrate them into this list and check it periodically. Thanks!

Edit: Until the number of optimized apps becomes unmanageable, of course! :wink:

Oh, the hours I’ve wasted with AisleRiot. L5 can now be my daily driver. :slight_smile: Keep 'em coming @amarok! its great to see the rapidly expanding number of apps that will work once I get my phone.

Can you tell me if LinSSID works on the phone? Im hoping that LinSSID can replace the android app of Wifi Analyzer, or even the app called Nutty by ElementaryOS (both are network monitoring apps).

Unfortunately that failed to launch after I installed it. Sorry.

I not a Librem 5 user yet, but for that purpose I’ll use a oneliner script like this.
watch 'nmcli -f "CHAN,BARS,SIGNAL,SSID" d wifi list ifname wlan0 | sort -n' you can put it in an alias or even create a .desktop file that opens a terminal with the script from the app grid easily.

It will look like this in the terminal:

CHAN  BARS  SIGNAL  SSID
1     ▂___  27      NETWORK 1
1     ▂▄▆_  57      NETWORK 2
6     ▂▄▆█  100     NETWORK PRINTER
6     ▂▄▆_  77      NETWORK 3
11    ▂▄__  47      NETWORK 4
11    ▂▄▆_  57      NETWORK 5
36    ▂▄__  44      NETWORK 6
36    ▂▄__  50      NETWORK 7
40    ▂___  24      NETWORK 8
48    ▂▄▆_  63      NETWORK 9

It doesn’t look fancy but it should work, @amosbatto could you try it? wlan0 should be replace by the network interface name in the Librem 5.

Cool command, but I don’t yet have a Librem 5 to try it. Perhaps @amarok or @lipu can try it for you.

Sorry I don’t know why but I thought you have it already.

i just tried it in a Terminal.
Works without modification.
