PureOS store - Can I add other Distros software repos? Will they work?
Dell Docking Station WD19 19.5 volts powered by a 130 Watts power source. Connects to L5 via USB-C and allows for 2 qty external monitors via HDMI connection, Mouse, Keyboard, Ethernet cord & sound wire to external speakers…however, the phone charges and gets fairly hot after about 10 minutes. Charging light on L5 goes from Steady Red to Blinking red. At that time I have unplugged the L5 from the Dell dock (to ensure it does not over heat the L5).
FlatPaks- Some install fine like Blanket, CherryTree, KeepassXC, Yubico Authenticator and Yubikey Personalization app, but other flatpak apps wont install like spotify and onlyoffice…Upon trying to install those i get “failed to install file: not supported”. Are flatpaks written for certain CPU architectures?
Camera app does not see thru both F/R lenses, but the app itself opens up just fine.
Application settings dont stick upon reboot. IE: display settings keep resorting to 200%, which is too big to allow most apps to function. When you display the apps down to 100-150% you can see the apps just fine, but upon rebooting the L5, it then resorts back to 200%
No bluetooth found…I though the L5 came with a built in Bluetooth chip?
Blinking red means that it stopped charging automatically (but it won’t discharge if there’s enough power provided via USB). If you want to use the phone intensively in docked mode, it’s best to charge it to full first, so you get rid of heat that comes from the battery being charged.
BTW - when I compile things on a docked phone, I simply put a small fan nearby - this single thing manages to reduce the phone’s temperature a lot and prevents it from thermal throttling.
The yubikey USB-C does not function or recognize that the key is in it when I try it in KeepassXC. However, I brought up the terminal and pressed the side of my Yubikey and it presented the touch code onto the terminal window (thus working). My guess is there is a missing dependency piece that still needs to be installed in order to use the Yubikey with KeepassXC.
I had problems with bluetooth and did this:
After contacting the support team, they may ask you to do steps similar to the following:
Get a more modern firmware from a repo. We have listed here on this forum to use https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/redpine-firmware-nonfree , but the support team pointed me to a fork using the command wget https://source.puri.sm/angus.ainslie/firmware-rs9116-nonfree/-/raw/debian/master/Firmware/RS9116_NLINK_WLAN_BT_IMAGE.rps . It might be beneficial to try one if the other doesn’t work.
Create a firmware folder on your phone if it doesn’t exist already: sudo mkdir /lib/firmware .
Move the newly downloaded firmware, using sudo mv -t /lib/firmware RS9116_NLINK_WLAN_BT_IMAGE.rps
Reboot the phone.
Attempt to turn on Bluetooth in the settings.
If trouble occurs, open a terminal, and save the dmesg for he support team: for example, I did sudo dmesg > dmesg_new_firmware.txt .
