Graphics stack KWin on Wayland or Xorg
Toolkit Qt 5

Overview

The basic shell has been ported to postmarketOS, and can now be tested.

To install it on your device run ./pmbootstrap.py init and choose plasma-mobile in the interface section.

Because compiling the entirety of KDE and Plasma may take a long time, a Git repository has been setup where pre-built packages can be downloaded for both x86_64 and armhf. Clone https://github.com/puretryout/pmos-plasma-mobile and copy the armhf and x86_64 folders to ~/.local/var/pmbootstrap/packages/, and copy the config_apk_keys folder to ~/.local/var/pmbootstrap/. Afterwards run ./pmbootstrap.py index from the root of your pmbootstrap installation.

For the official KDE instructions on running Plasma Mobile you can use their website: https://community.kde.org/Plasma/Mobile/RunningApps

Packaging efforts have been documented here.

Running

For now Plasma requires a device with (basic) OpenGL support.

After installation, the shell will automatically launch upon boot. If it doesn't, have a look at /etc/profile.d/start_plasma.sh and /bin/startkwin.sh.

Debugging

By default Plasma and KWin don't log anything significant or useful for this project. To tell them to, create ~/.config/QtProject/qtlogging.ini with the following content:

You can read the log output with logread -f. Anything related to Plasma and KDE will have a username:plasma-mobile prefix.
