    Dark theme has missing icons for bluetooth, wifi, volume, battery

    not sure why. you can see that it's making room for the icons, but just not showing them. i also needed to install albatross-gtk-theme for it not to complain about some missing features, but the icons don't work before or after install (including a reboot). what it should look like in the...

    Suspending (closing lid), CPU heats up, locks up

    i've had this happen a couple times. i'll shut the pyra lid for a while, come back (30 minutes or more later), and the device feels really hot (even hotter than when in use), and it's unresponsive. the screen is off, and an LED on the power button is active, but that's the only sign of life...

    Azimuth

    i compiled azimuth with very minimal changes and uploaded it here: https://pyra-handheld.com/repo/apps/46 it's a fun game, but it's also probably a bit borked on the pyra. it will run slow in big rooms, and some walls are invisible, AKA this is hard mode.

    First impressions, ideas for improvements, etc.

    somewhat low priority, but things i'm thinking: left click (via right-nub left) is really handy, but i think it may be a better default for the file manager to use a single left click to open files/folders. double clicking to open stuff works most of the time, but can feel frustrating when it...

    itch.io

    there's a thread on steam (https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/free-pc-games-steam.73103/) and Gog (https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/gog-com.73532/), but i don't see one specifically for itch.io. there's currently a big sale supporting the movement for racial justice, and lots of...

    Creoqode Lyra

    https://liliputing.com/2019/07/https-www-youtube-com-watchvpeztppcmw_e.html I don't mind that it's rpi gen 3 as that should better for battery life... But HDMI being on the side is bad, even if it's impossible to drive both displays at once. You can't use it as a controller for the TV...

    User Likability

    i propose: likability = # [likes on your posts] / # posts most newcomers experience high likability, as long as they post something flattering about the Pyra or retro gaming. however, likability should probably only start being compared after 20 posts or so, to stamp out the new-user...
