Default Maui Shell homescreen.
|Toolkit||Mauikit + QT5|
[maui-shell] is an experimental convergent UI written in QT. It isn't quite ready for use yet but it can be tested in postmarketOS using the
maui feature branch of pmaports: https://gitlab.com/postmarketOS/pmaports/-/tree/maui
Check out the feature branch, change your UI to maui with
pmbootstrap config ui maui and then do a standard install.
You may need to manually set the session to maui with
tinydm-set-session -s -f /usr/share/wayland-sessions/cask.desktop, cask is the name of the maui compositor.
You should now be able to start maui by starting the tinydm service.
Scaling for QT apps can be overriden by editing
/usr/share/wayland-sessions/cask.desktop and prepending to the Exec line, change 2 to your preferred scale factor.
Exec=env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=eglfs QT_SCALE_FACTOR=2 QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 /usr/bin/....
You may want to pipe the output of cask somewhere so that you can read it, by default it should log to /tmp/cask.log but this doesn't seem to work as intended, you can try editing
/usr/share/applications/cask.desktop and changing it's Exec to something like
Exec=sh -c '/usr/bin/cask -r -plugin libinput 2>&1 > /tmp/cask.log'
|The above is entirely untested and probably required some tweaking|
