What madness is this?!

Installing the complete, unmodified LibreOffice right on a Librem 5?!??

This can't work... can it?

Well. LibreOffice successfully installed on the Librem 5!

But... I mean... It won't actually run.

... will it?

Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!


Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!

@lunduke At long last, a way to actually write a novel while on the bus! Closest I've achieved is using to stream my server, but the HTML5 interface is so wonky it won't work on my phone...

@csolisr Both vim and emacs have long been in Termux on Android.

Though there's Androids wonderful random app termination...



@dredmorbius @lunduke And the second major problem: it's not comfortable to be using the phone on one hand and a cheat sheet to remember what each button on Vim/Emacs does on the other.

@csolisr Learning vim properly helps markedly.

I invested the 2 weeks or so required back in the late 1980s. Skill-wise, probably one of the greatest payoffs ever for me.

Excellent video: invidio.us/watch?v=wlR5gYd6um0

(It taught me things, after 30+ years.)




Not sure if it's an impairment, but the times I've attempted to do vimtutor, I can literally feel my brain forgetting the keybindings of chapter 2 to make space for chapter 3. It's one of those courses that are expected to be finished in a single session, anyway.

@csolisr That's where trating vim as a language, [count] + target + action, helps a lot.

The basic vim tutorial should give you the basics.

Beyond that: practice and familiarity.


@dredmorbius @lunduke

I'm well aware of Vim keybindings being not unlike Regex, the problem is memorizing them all. I agree on the "Practice and Familiarity" part, but it's really difficult to reach that level when you need a cheat sheet for even moving the cursor.
