Gnome mobile is a fork of gnome-shell and mutter with phone specific patches to make it more usable on phones, the user interface feels quite similar to Phosh in design, a demo can be seen here: https://twitt.re/tobias_bernard/status/1564619111396773897
unfortunately it doesn't want to build yet, currently stuck getting mozjs102 to compile.
Current branch should build and function!
- Keyboard doesn't pop up on apps like telegram desktop
- Often the application isn't correctly "shifted" to make the textbox visible (e.g. when typing in the address bar on firefox with firefox-mobile-config).
- When the application is shifted it is shifted slightly further than the keyboard height (confirmed on OnePlus 6, maybe was originally hardcoded for PinePhone?)
Scaling by default only goes up to 250% on op6 which is a bit smaller than preferred.the MR is now merged and this is fixed, gnome-mobile uses the same scaling algorithm as Phosh now and 300% scaling is an option. It's recommended to run
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"to enable fractional scaling, otherwise 200% is the maximum shown
write wiki page explaining it and it's WIP status, and a guide on installing it along side Phosh(installing side by side currently not recommended due to conflicting packages); https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Gnome_Shell_for_Mobile
update branches once verdre removes pinephone pro specific hacks
