The unoficial purism wiki

I have created a Bookstack wiki, I propose it to be used as an unofficial purism wiki.

I understand that purism themselves cannot spend their time writing quality documentation nor do they want to publish tutorials on how to install non-free software onto our systems, but for pureOS to be available this information must be available. Therefore an unofficial wiki. I warn you this is being run of my personal server so I cannot guarantee stability (sorry but if needed my cloud storage solution takes precedence although I will make sure to download all the documentation beforehand).

The server is of a stock ubuntu 16.04 install with apache and MariaDB along with other security hardening applications, as such the server is as free as is reasonable.

Addition of editors will be at my own discretion although anyone may view, please PM me for an account.

---- Appropriate topics for the wiki ----

  • Why purism/why Linux (IMHO any website about a Linux product should have this)
  • How to contact Purism
  • Common issues
  • Setup guide
  • How to install steam or other non-free software
  • How to harden your home network/‘so you want to be secure’
  • Anything else you feel like is necessary and can persuade me of this

For what it’s worth, there is an official Purism wiki here:

It’s just pretty empty at the moment.


yes but they can’t publish info on how to do non-free stuff and we need a way to make sure that the info stays availible if purism goes under. Also the main wiki is oly for stuff directly relating to purism there needs to be a site where people with little/no technical expertise can go to find how to install steam on their devices

Fair enough. Thanks for setting yours up then!

Great idea. The URL is a bit off (tastyprojects just sounds weird IMO).

Plus, your server is down.

But, otherwise this is a great idea.
Similar concept to ThinkWiki. :slight_smile:

There is also the PureOS wiki. needs to be worked on. But the idea is to be more focused on the hardware.


I think that Purism have to allow users from forum to edit wiki. I have many photos of insides, some information about screen, laptop, i modified touchpad, i can tell many information about Librem v15, but i can’t write it into official wiki.


Why don’t you contact Purism via mail and tell them you want to work on their wiki?


Hm… Nice idea. I will try later, when I have a desire to write an article.

Haha i needed a cheap URL to run experiments on it’s since be deactivated as i don’t use it anymore. I think the best option is for Purisim to have a section of the wiki that is user maintained (similar to Arch’s AUR which is hosted by Arch but used at users own risk).

It seems @mladen made but it is currently empty.
As far as hardware maintainability goes, I am also interested in contributing to

I believe as a user of the forum you can gain permission to edit the wiki.
Once you earn the Regular Badge under Trust Level at the bottom. Though it is not clear how you earn it, there are people in this thread with the badge.
