How to use this repository

The repository is signed. The key can be automatically updated, because it’s also a package in the repository. For the first-time install, you need to download and install the package manually, afterwards it will be updated using apt. Installing the key this way is reasonably secure, thanks to HTTPS.


sudo dpkg -i debian-pm-archive-keyring_20210819_all.deb Afterwards, add the following text to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-pm.list. deb testing main

After the next sudo apt update you can install packages from the repository.

If your device only supports OpenGL ES, like the Pine Phone does, you may want to install the debian-pm-repository package, which configures apt to always install Qt from the debian-pm repository, instead of installing from debian

Install the base packages of Plasma Mobile

If you are installing on Mobian…

The default graphical environment on Mobian is Phosh, which you will need to disable in order to run Plasma Mobile. You don't need to uninstall it though, so it can be easily enabled back later.

sudo systemctl disable phosh

The packages required for a minimal Plasma Mobile experience can be installed using the following command: sudo apt install plasma-phone-components plasma-phone-settings plasma-settings plasma-phonebook plasma-angelfish plasma-nm simplelogin plasma-dialer spacebar

More apps can be installed from the repository.
