jeff added a comment to T490: Begin adding Purism branding to PureOS.

Purism branding elements can be packaged in the repositories of both the normal and OEM versions of PureOS, but preinstalled (or activated) only in the OEM version (i.e. so that the "purism-branding" package is installed by default on factory-preloaded Librem devices, but not on non-purism devices where people install PureOS themselves).

jeff added a comment to T309: VPN should be 'on' after switching WiFi networks.

NetworkManager has a provision for this, and it gets exposed in the WiFi connection preferences in nm-connection-editor, but IIRC:

jeff added a comment to T147: Rework purebrowser packaging.

Pardon my silly question, but as the latest release of Firefox ESR is version 52.4, could we take the opportunity to leap to that instead of being stuck at the 1.5-years-old 45 series, and lock ourselves into version 52 for the foreseeable future? (I would tend to think we should not jump to regular Firefox 57+ for a while, because the forceful migration to webextensions might cause us untold misery)

jeff reopened T148: "Software & Updates" (preinstalled graphical APT repositories editor tool) doesn't start as "Open".

Apparently not fixed as you still get the same issue after applying the latest updates.

jeff added a comment to T127: Missing document link at https://puri.sm/pr/.

I "fixed" the issue by removing that row. I was previously hoping to make a new version of that file, but this is clearly not happening and I don't see much point in a PDF spec sheet vs the live-updated products comparison table anyway, so I just removed it now.

jeff added a comment to T93: ImageMagick GUI app is installed by default.

Over the years I've had all the creative apps (Inkscape, GIMP, Krita, Scribus, Blender, MyPaint, Calligra, etc.) installed and I never saw ImageMagick installed, I didn't even know a GUI existed for it ;) so given that PureOS3 beta doesn't have any creative apps preinstalled, I don't see where this thing appeared from.

Confirming that with the beta, applying updates in gnome software caused no problem.

jeff added a comment to T51: Language packs and fancy input methods should be available by default.

@zlatan.todoric Well having a command line to give to people is the workaround until we have the real solution: exposing locale packages in GNOME Software and/or allowing gnome-control-center to install them as needed. Low priority given that we have a workaround, but this is is something that would be expected nonetheless to give a good user experience.

jeff updated subscribers of T51: Language packs and fancy input methods should be available by default.

That's the "optimal solution"; in the meantime, if it is not a quick-and-trivial thing to implement in Debian, I would like us to at least have a way to tell users how to install the relevant packages for their locale with one simple command (ie how to figure out the correct package names), in case anybody asks @mladen.pejakovic
