Launching the Aliendalvik Android environment from Sailfish in Linux distributions
Jonas Dressler from the GNOME project, who develops the GNOME Shell edition for mobile devices, has published developments that allow you to run the Aliendalvik environment (AppSupport) in regular Linux distributions. Aliendalvik is a layer for the Sailfish mobile platform that provides the launch of applications written for the Android platform. During the reverse engineering of Aliendalvik, patches for the Mutter composite server, scripts and bindings over the sound server and input system necessary to run Aliendalvik outside the Sailfish platform environment were prepared.

Preparing a megathread about android FOSS apps - Part one (Contacts, SMS & Dialer)
After read this [thread](https://lemmy.ml/post/9968941), I have an idea. Why not build a megathread with the best and most reliable FOSS apps too help someone who want to join on the bright side of open source? I want to know if you agree with that. And if you agree, I will create one thread per week to discuss the best options to use on android. Dont know nothing about iPhone, so, if you want contribute, lets go, say what you feel. But, this require your help. Help from all communities. We (because this is not from me, this is from us) need to share thoughts, ideas and all things you want to say. Dont be shy. Upvote the comments you like and agree; disagree and tell why you disagree. This is will be different from others threads because this need a proper user opinion, and your opinions will be VERY important to build this. In short, your opinions and thoughts will be the fundamental source to build this. I will read ALL comments to build this. Even if this has a million comments, I'm going to waste time reading it. Whatever it takes. If you need help, use [Exodus site](https://exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/) too see if any app has trackers. (Apps from Simple Mobile Tools will not be accpeted, because they was bought from a shady guy) I'm going to divide this by threads, as I said.. After one week, I will open the second thread. This first topic will be to discuss: #1 - Contacts, SMS and Dialer _____________________________________________________ **>The next ones will be** ::: spoiler spoiler #2 – Calculator, Camera and Calendar #3 – Manager files, Recorder and Gallery #4 – Keyboard, Notes and Maps #5 – Meteorology , Stores and social media #6 – WebBrowsers and Important utilities ::: ___________________________________________ For now, this is my suggestions for this part one. Only on final (megathread) this is will be matters. ::: spoiler spoiler **>Contacts** ~~- [Right Contacts (from goodwy)](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.goodwy.contacts) – This app is only avaiable from PlayStore, however, the code is open as you can see [here](https://github.com/Goodwy/Contacts). Tell me if you agree with that, please. If you all disagree, I will delete this suggestions.~~ - [Simple Contacts Pro SE](https://f-droid.org/packages/de.ritscher.simplemobiletools.contacts.pro/) – This is will not update anymore, however I put it because, for now, I guess it works. Is a fork from Simple Concacts (SimpleMobileTools). **>SMS** - [QKSMS](https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.moez.QKSMS/) – If you like a minimal and simple sms app, you probably gonna like this. ~~- [Right Messages (from goodwy)](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.goodwy.smsmessenger) – Again, the code is open and you can see [here](https://github.com/Goodwy/Messages). I like a lot these apps from goodwy.~~ **>Dialer** ~~- [Right Dialer](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.goodwy.dialer) – Again, same thing from RightContacts and RightMessages. Code [here](https://github.com/Goodwy/Dialer).~~ - [Koler](https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.chooloo.www.koler/) – Simple and beautiful app dialer. I used it. However, dont have the option to block anonymous calls. :::

I could not recommend AnySoftKeyboard to my mum. I could recommend Florisboard, tho. Openboard is virtually dead from what I can see. So that leaves Florisboard as the only open source alternative (that I know of) that could really be used by the masses. And the world would actually be a way better place if we all opensource freaks could install Florisboard on our family/friends phones and them barely noticing anything weird. The problem is... no word suggestions yet. It's been years and we are still lacking what is almost an essential feature of a phone's keyboard. I wish I could really work on it, but I lack the knowledge to do so; so I hope I am bringing some attention to the project. Is there any other alternative I am unaware of?

[Source](https://github.com/SimpleMobileTools/General-Discussion/issues/241#issuecomment-1837102917). Simple Mobile apps have been very popular among FOSS enthusiasts.

Many other guides dive deep into 10 plus pages of how to set up such a service with Dovecot, Postfix and a web server all from the command line, but this one is a lot simpler because most of what you need is inside Citadel. Citadel also has calendar, Contacts, Notes, Tasks and chat rooms so can be a good alternative to Google or other providers. Your only cost really is the Raspberry Pi and a domain name if you don't already have one. You could tweak this a bit further by using your own DNS provider (or alternative to Cloudflare) and considering an external hard drive connected to the Pi for reliability.

Migrate from Authy to FOSS TOTP app
Twilio will abandon Authy desktop, a good opportunity to switch to an open-source app. That is if you manage to export the tokens from Authy. Without a convenient export, many users will be stuck. The guides you can find online require an old versions of the desktop app. Is there a known way today? Do we know how/where Authy stores the secrets on-device?

Atuin replaces your existing shell history with a SQLite database, and records additional context for your commands. With this context, Atuin gives you faster and better search of your shell history! Additionally, it provides optional and fully encrypted (E2EE) synchronisation of your history between machines, via an Atuin server, or you can self-host your own server. There is a single command to easily delete your data from the server too. It supports zsh, bash, fish, and nushell shells right now. The search is as easy as pressing the up arrow in the terminal and then scrolling back, or typing to search. But you could also type something like this to do a search [search for all successful `make` commands, recorded after 3pm yesterday atuin search --exit 0 --after "yesterday 3pm" make]. Atuin offers configurable full text or fuzzy search, filterable by host, directory, etc. As it has context around dates, times, exit code, and even the directory location form where a command was executed, you could use the -c flag to just search for commands run in a particular directory. The sync function allows you to have the same history across terminals, across sessions, and across machines. There is a quick start script that can be run to install it, otherwise you can also install from the various Linux repos. For manual installation, the steps I found to get going were: * Install Ble.sh and add it to your .bashrc (or other shell) file * Install Atuin and add it to your .bashrc (or other shell) file (after Ble.sh) * Restart your shell and run 'atuin import bash' to import my bash history into Atuin * Press up arrow to see if Atuin interactive search triggers The link below has some good documentation as well a link to their source code. See https://atuin.sh/ #technology #Linux #opensource

Looking for Notes App for Android & Linux
I am trying to slowly de-Google-ify myself by moving to open source apps, I wanna ditch google notes and evernote. I tried obsidian, standard notes, and joplin, I liked using obsidian on PC and standard notes looks nice on android but obsidian you need to pay to have sync and standard notes doesn't do markdown unless you pay (are plugins only on PC???). Joplin has most features I need but I don't like how it looks/feels on android (haven't tried in PC yet) Basically what I want the most in a notes app is offline with sync capability for phone and PC, would be nice to make folders for notes like notepads on evernote, and md is a big plus but I can live without it. I would love if I could use something like proton drive for cloud sync and wouldn't mind paying for obsidian if it was cheaper cuz $8 per month is too much for my minimum pay and I didnt see any cheaper plans. EDIT: If no one has any better suggestions, I am thinking of trying to setup obsidian with syncthing.

Appreciation post about Cromite (and PrivacyBrowser)
After debloat my android (i dont have a custom ROM for my oneplus) I started use Cromite and Mull. I used duckduckgo app during a few months, but sometimes I feel it a bit clunky. Overall is a good app but I decided try another browsers and forget about DDG. Mull has a good UI and has a nice tools like Ublock and others , but the connection .... Is VERY slow. Take a bunch of time to enter on any site, and I did this with and without uBlock. Otherwise, we need to talk about Cromite... Fellas, Im speechless! What a browser. So responsive, fast and privacy friendly. Have a sandbox integrated too. I know Cromite has some bugs, i know, but for an open source app, is amazing, imo. Im trying today PrivacyBrowser and looks very good too. I need more days to get a final conclusion, but feels very promissing for my point of view. Seems a little complicated to the beginning, but with more days i guess i will understand more Give these apps (Cromite and PrivacyBrowser) a try. They deserve and I guess they dont let you down. (Yeah, my english is pretty bad, sorry :/ )

Is my ‘smart’ thermostat violating the GPL?
So, I know very little and have a poor understanding of the software licenses, hence why I'm asking. I have a 'smart' thermostat that came with the new HVAC system. It is the [AprilAire 8920W](https://www.aprilaire.com/whole-house-products/thermostats/old-wifi-thermostat/model-8920w). It has a touchscreen, connects to wifi, does lots of 'computer' things. I cannot imagine that this furnace company built their own OS and kernel and everything else from scratch; it seems most likely it is running linux, yea? And with that, includes libraries and other tools that are under some version of the GPL, yea? I went down the router rabbit-hole some weeks ago and found the firmware for routers available on the Linksys website, the Linksys site has this ['GPL Code Center'](https://www.linksys.com/ca/support-article/?articleNum=50485). I'm finding nothing of the sort from AprilAire, though... So, if we assume that my 'smart' thermostat is running Linux (and, say, busybox, a common GPL-ed tool on small systems, like routers), they are obligated to provide the code for at least those pieces of software, right? They need to give me a CD or have a page on their website (and include the link in the manual) and all that? Do they need to give me access to the entire firmware as well? The router folks do, but you also sometimes need to re-install the firmware manually, so that may not be a license issue. However, how would we know if they are violating a license if we don't know what is running on it? I'm curious about how the GPL / copy-left licenses work, and wondering if I found someone who is violating it. I also want to hack the thermostat to control it without the motherfuckin' cloud, but that is a bit separate.

Federated, free, and/or open source software will not be chosen over proprietary software unless they overcome this hurdle.
# Innovation requires resources Innovation happens wherever we put our efforts towards. The space race and the technologies it gave us is an example. Finding ways of reducing the cost of production of commodities is another. The green transition is another example. These are the bounds that determine how innovation happens in federated social networks. They will only innovate when there is enough effort put towards them. Beyond technical innovation (perhaps in a TOR kind-of-network way, or in a Git kind-of-version-control way), a full-fledged piece of software that is effective and attractive enough for people to use, takes resources. These resources largely refer to labor power. Remember, we're not talking about maintenance costs, but development costs. Programmers require money to survive. # FLOSS is no exception Yes, FLOSS software can survive with volunteers, but even those volunteers have to pay their bills. Yes, the internet plus (as Bruce Schneier defines it), copyleft licenses, and already-existing technical know-how reduce the cost of production, but the costs are there nonetheless. Someone needs to do the work. I think about open source projects I admire. Diaspora received exceptional funding, relative to its goals. Signal was heavily funded by donations. Element has a business model that lets them work towards improving Matrix. Linux has many companies that depend on it and are able to finance innovation on it. This argument, applied to Lemmy, makes me wonder. How do Nutomic and Dessalines handle it? Are they precious exceptions that drive Lemmy forward because of their personal values and their willingness to use their technical know-how for the development of this platform? Will Lemmy thrive without them? This brings me to another point: FLOSS and federated software has the advantage that many people are willing to spend their time working towards laudable goals. They are not motivated by profit as much as improving humanity. # FLOSS has a problem that others systematically address: making things attractive The issue with FLOSS projects is that they mainly respond to thought-out worldviews. That is, people are willing to engage with this kind of software because of logical reasons (*logos*, as Aristotle and those guys would call it). It is rarer to have people engage with FLOSS and federated software because of emotions (*pathos*). Unfortunately for humans, we are emotional creatures. I get put off by how unattractive the Free Software Foundation's website is, despite loving the values that the foundation stands for. I get put off by using terminals, despite the fact that plenty of FLOSS software does not have GUIs. I hate Thunderbird's calendar, despite using it daily. Companies with investors and FLOSS projects with enough funding know this and therefore pay graphical designers, user experience experts, and sometimes market researchers to make products attractive. This takes money. # Conclusion And that brings us back to my point: for free software to be *chosen* by most people, it has to have enough labor behind it to make it both effective and attractive. This is the hurdle it needs to be overcome. ## Notes on my sources These are reflections that arose after a series of conversations with a friend who works at an 'innovation office'. His job is explicitly to design an 'innovation ecosystem', which attempts to create innovation with minimal investment. Everyone at that office knows this is bullshit. Innovation rarely comes without money. Therefore, they basically look for investors for projects that don't have enough money. That's it. This view, that innovation requires investment, is shared by Anwar Shaikh and classical economics. However, it's more complicated with the research behind innovation. Let's take 'platforms of innovation'. For example, cosmopolitan cities, the internet, and universities are hubs of innovation. However, it's a mistake to think that these are 'neutral' in terms of costs. All of them require operational costs. All of them imply costs of technical training. Even here, there are costs that cannot be ignored. If we look at mission-oriented innovation, the situation becomes clearer. Universities doing cancer-related research, States doing green energy-related research, or companies doing market-related research all clearly align with the argument I made above. Finally, it's perfectly possible that the argument I made above is not at all original. In fact, I doubt it is. If anything, it could be similar to a high-school student discovering their own proof of the pythagorean theorem: it's not new for the community of knowers who already know it, but it's new from the point of view of the student. At least I get to share this with you and hear your thoughts about it. Oh, and given that Lemmy doesn't have terms of service yet, I wanted to make sure I could share this in the future. I licensed it under a [Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/). Weird. I know. Oh well.
