Glacier is a phone shell based on Jolla's Mer stack. It can be used as a FOSS alternative to the proprietary UI on SailfishOS but can also be used on other distributions.

Installation

Glacier can be installed by selecting it as UI in pmbootstrap init. On existing systems it can be installed by installing the postmarketos-ui-glacierPMOS meta package or glacier-home if postmarketOS specific customization is not wanted.


Usage

Install software

There currently is no software store to install new applications. Because of this software can currently only be installed on the command-line:
