jeremiah.foster added a comment to T156: purebrowser - default search engine tracks users.

I don't think I did do that @jonas.smedegaard - the details of the task description show something more nuanced than "bad". If you feel that there is no evidence for DDG tracking and fingerprinting users, and personally I deem the DDG statement as acceptable, then I think we can move forward. In other words, that caveat I added shouldn't be a blocker but rather something to keep in mind and as evidence that we've thought about the problem.

jeremiah.foster updated subscribers of T763: Improve visuals and wording in the installer.

So if this is going to be PureOS specific then we need to discuss this with @francois because he'll have PureOS related material that I imagine we'll want to use. If it is not meant to be PureOS specific, just a generic installer, then I don't really have an opinion beyond respecting existing copyrights and trademarks. I do hope to limit any customizations to images and slides that clarify what is happening for the user. I think it should be abundantly clear that the user is installing PureOS if that is in fact what is happening.

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T711: Software & Updates fails to start ("aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for PureOS/green").

A newer version of the GNOME Software application (gnome-software and gnome-software-common) still produces this bug. I think Matthias is pointing to the fact that the issue is in python-apt and that is independent from GNOME Software.

It looks like the patch was put in upstream python-apt https://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs//main/p/python-apt/python-apt_1.8.4_changelog

I think what is happening is that it is looking for the old key on your old drive and not finding it. (Hence the message: "No key available with this passphrase"). Is there anyway you can re-insert your old drive and then copy the contents over to the new disk? Alternatively, you may be able to inform cryptsetup about your new disk.

Hi wellton. Thanks for mirroring. I understand that downloads from our official sources can be slow. We are in the process of setting up mirrors worldwide and would love to add yours as a potential partnering mirror. However we have not developed a fully complete policy with regard to mirroring. At this time the feeling is that Purism would prefer that the 'pureos.net' name wasn't included in your mirror URL if at all possible. It seems to imply that yours is an 'official' mirror and ought to get 'official' support.

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T694: Automatically lock the screen when Librem Key is removed.

The format of the udev rule in the file itself may be the issue, I'm still trying to determine. Nitrokey offers packages: https://www.nitrokey.com/download/debian I'm going to see if they provide any inspiration.

Apr 23 2019, 8:53 PM
jeremiah.foster added a comment to T694: Automatically lock the screen when Librem Key is removed.

The udev rule doesn't work in either machine; neither the L13v3 or L15v3. With regard to identifying the device, I'm included dmesg output (which I've not found super helpful) and udevadm output (which is better.)

Apr 23 2019, 8:45 PM
jeremiah.foster added a comment to T694: Automatically lock the screen when Librem Key is removed.

The rules file is in the right location (/etc/udev/rules.d) and it gets read according to systemd-udev:

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T694: Automatically lock the screen when Librem Key is removed.

The gnome-screensaver-lock works well. I cannot get the udev rule to be discovered on my L15v3 however. There is some information on this available on the Nitrokey from upstream where they publish their own udev rules but that fails to work for me as well.

  1. You have two "resume=" targets. The UUIDs differ too. You may want to compare the two resume target disk UUIDs with what you have in /etc/fstab to make sure that the last resume= is even needed. You can use the 'disks' tool to do this.
