If you follow the upstream discussion you can see that they're already on it! :-)
ok, so we should contact the Litrokey app devs? To see if they merge that request?
Debian maintainer states "I'm concerned that the addition of vendor_id might cause an ABI break. There are multiple packages that use libnitrokey in Debian (not just nitrokey-app) and so we can't silently change the ABI."

Please note that this issue is about whether or not a package in PureOS is violating policies defined by Debian and/or FSF.
I wanted to add to this issue that Geogebra is no longer updated in Debian due to the license, cf. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=692728. The problem is not only the documentation is licensed for non-commercial, but also the language files. As a result, it seems impossible to me to have a package with the free parts only, because such a version would not include any strings and hence be unusable?

I tried octave in Byzantium and the bug is not present (at least the proposed example above works).

Matthias is looking upstream to see if the fix has been already made in effort to de-duplicate work.
Yes, it has. The PoC is basically replacing the nitrokey pro device and vendor ID with the Librem Key device and vendor ID
Has the PoC been tested with the app?
No, that repo is a poc.
So, if I understand correctly, this repo holds the patched libnitrokey: https://source.puri.sm/joao.azevedo/libnitrokey/

This does not break an install, that is correct.
I'm happy to work on this TODAY but this is not "Unbreak Now!" because it is not breaking anything for our users and, we have a perfectly viable alternative that is a tiny bit better, namely the Librem Key.
I confirm that it is working properly in debian-live with Gnome 3.
I forgot to say that the version of debian 10 I tested was using XFCE. I will try with Gnome so maybe the error is related to that,

@hansolo Yes, thank you! What I hope to do is to determine that any action we take affects only the Librems with a US keyboard. We're going to have to determine the best fix for the US keyboard and then deploy.
This issue is caused because g-i-s follows RHEL/Fedora useradd rules which are different from debian. Fedora/RHEL allows usernames with upper case letters.
And g-i-s provides no error message when a PureOS user tries to create a username that does not comply with the useradd rules followed in PureOS.
I have a German keyboard layout, can I help?
It's unfortunately one with a US keyboard :-/
@mak Do you have a German keyboard now? Or is your L13 v4 US keyboard?

I'm going turn this task into a milestone so we can track the release period.
The OEM installer converts a user Full Name into a Username in lower case letters, but it is possible for a user to manually edit the username and add a upper case latter again. Like in the picture bellow.

Both those mentions in the logs at boot time are "normal".

Apparently an upstream bug: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/12401
Thanks for reporting!
After several days and upgrades, it seems, that unattended-upgrades got removed automatically, so I don't bother anymore :)

The versions in Amber and Byzantium are not far apart; https://software.pureos.net/search_pkg?term=libccid
In Debian's Salsa it appears they're about 88 commits apart: https://salsa.debian.org/rousseau/CCID/-/compare/ccid-1.4.30...ccid-1.4.32
unless it's a pure bugfix release
On PureOS Amber, running lsusb I get:

To confirm, I'm going to update to this commit: https://review.coreboot.org/cgit/flashrom.git/commit/?id=05c629be2964bcee368c03d805747da15281856d
Now one can just call docker and the version of the PureOS distro image you want, like this;
I guess the best approach in resolving of the issue would be a collaboration between many parties interested in FSDG-compatible fork of Firefox.

I had face connectivity issues and quite regularly. I can not blame free vpn services as you wont pay to them, though mentioning some of them who create less issues(https://www.reviewsed.com/best-free-vpn-services/). But even i saw such issues in premium packages so i would also recommend to go with Expressvpn or surfshark as they have great advanced features that provide you smoothless service with out any disruption.

Do we need a new version of the library in amber, or is there a patch that we can apply to the amber version? Uploading a new upstream version always comes with some risk of breaking other stuff (unless it's a pure bugfix release).
I think this is worth looking into - let me see if I can upload a new version of the library packaged for Amber.

a an issue that remains is that we don't have debug packages for regular pureos-amber. This can often be helped by using the ones from Debian but not always when e.g. pureos lacks a bit behind. This makes it unsafe to enable by default.
dbgsym packages for amber-phone-staging do work now via

This issue still persists in PureOS.
Perhaps this will also fix T803 ?
Contact NitroKey app developers and ask what is needed to accept the patch
