JingOS on One netbook One mix 2s feedback

I just tested Jing os on my One mix 2s and encounted some issues, I understand that this is only a preview image but thought I’d pass along what I encountered.

The screen was rotated right as most do on this 2 in 1 netbook but I encounted no way to easily rectify this, as im aware some GPD netbooks will have this same issue, I highly recommend giving people some way to manually fix this or rotate there screen

The touch matrix was off a little bit as well for that orientation, it was the right way but my screen was rotated right while still displaying in that 16.9 format so the touch matrix had stretched to the black boarders on the screen so the location was off.

Auto rotate wasn’t working either

Also recommend implementing some use for the meta key but I guess that’s related to the KDE framework you’re using.

This looks really great and I can see that alot of work has been put into this, for touch enabled screens 2 in 1 laptops and tablets I can see this becoming popular in time

I’d also focus on these brands as they offer some good touch enabled devices that are widely available if you are looking for device suggestions later on

One netbook
GPD
PineTab
Pinephone
Chuwi
Xaomi
Huawei
Lenovo yoga range

Keep up the good work it looks beautiful

I agree with what DamienMokomoko said about rotation options. Many tablets boot distros in portrait mode. It would be good if JingOS could detect this to support portrait mode AND (importantly) give you the ability to switch it to landscape mode when booting completes. When I booted JingOS v0.6 on my HP-608-G1, JingOS displayed in landscape, but as the device boots to portrait, I ended up with a glitchy small landscape view in the middle of a portrait screen.

Bro, V0.8 has released!
Would you like to have a try?

No change aside from it feeling more polished and responsive, honestly this would probably end up being my daily if I could fix this like on Gnome, KDE, Deepin and cinnamon. Auto rotate isn’t detected either, not sure if the fixes I know would work out the box unfortunately.

Having manual rotation and full use of the screen would make it so user friendly on these handheld devices, gpd too is probably affected by this as they suffer the same issues mine has.

Managed to get the right orientation using the provided kde settings widget with the release of 8.1, I did however encounter some other issues that might be being worked on there’s actually no menu to select how to power off other than turning the screen off with the power button, (seems mine doesn’t sleep as the power indicator is still on) and when watching a video it’ll still sleep while playing, the screen turns off while videos are playing after a set period of time and currently for keyboard users the meta/start key has no use atm.

Aside from that, for an alpha release it’s quite stable and responsive, I’m excited to see how much will change by the end of the year its really a beautifully crafted operating system
