hello people,

I have a few ideas to facilitate the task.

1 When I have an open list of programs on the main screen, I would like to open the top menu.


2 When I hold the power button for a longer time, I would like to have a restart/reboot icon next to the power off. Unless there is a shortcut to reset?


3 In the gallery, as I mark a few photos or all of this, I would like to have an icon for sharing next to the trash. In the file manager also the most.


4 I would like the gallery to have photos from each build that are in the OS updates tab. They are beautiful :)


And I have two questions.

Why is the calculator not scientific?

Can you log in with ssh as a regular user without a password from the phone? It's about developer mode.

Sorry for my english.

Best regards

Sailfish calculator is scientific also, you just have to put it on landscape mode so rotate the screen horizontally.

@Sakke actually, not much, but it's good.

you can add your public key under .ssh/authorized_keys so next time you do ssh you do not need to use the password. You still need the phone password for devel-su (sudo) commands and you do need to have "remote connection" enabled in settings.

@pmelas You can add your ssh key to the root account, too. In this way you can ssh root@jolla.ip.address with public-key and forget about the devel-su password entirely.

Two other quick remarks: (1) copying ssh keys is quicker if you use ssh-copy-id from your pc. (2) once you set up public key auth, it is a good idea to disable password authentication overall, to improve security. Those autogenerated passwords do not seem military-strength solid.

  1. Access to top menu from app drawer, why?
  2. Go to Settings, Developer tools, enable last option at the bottom.

Calculator: I don't know. But there's SpeedCrunch, to be found on OpenRepos.

And why not? Always one less move. ;) Thanks I did not notice that there is this function.

ad top menu:
as top menu as well as app drawer are overlays I di not see tgis happen. And not useful: if you open app drawer you want to ooen an app, the too menu here dies not hekp you ir give you any more options. So close app deawer and open top menu.

ad reset NO! I do not want my devicw to be reset accidentally. Or did you mean restart/reboot? This is configurable under Settings/Developer tools/...

ad Gallery That would make many sense! Please search i there is already such request, else open up a new single question.

ad calculator There is ScientificCalculatir inbthe Jilla store. The one provided can perfom just rudimentary head calculations :)

ad log in log in to any device without password does not make sense. Or rephrase your question

I'm sorry for the mistake, it was about reboot/restart
