Ok, dumb question maybe, but is there a user guide for Sailfish OS? Something I can read before deciding to dive in?
There is the old Jolla user guide: https://jolla.com/guide/en/index.html
That is Sailfish OS 1.x (we’re at 3.x now) so some things are a bit different these days. It has the basic ideas though.
I couldn’t find anything else for now.
You may take a look at this thread…
Thanks very much, I’ll go and check those out.
I know it’s not exactly what you asked for, but you could also get an idea by watching some feature videos. Here are a couple (both a bit old now, but they still give an idea). You’ll find a bunch more videos on both the official Jolla and Leszek’s YouTube accounts.
Thank you! Folks here are really helpful, appreciate it.
Linking to a collection of useful links, including the ‘user guide’ ones.
and if we still had the power I’d close this answered
@david.giffin you can do this, I think. I have seen this in other Discourse forums.
No idea how to do that, sorry!
I don’t see the “Solved” button, so an guessing it’s not enabled.
The TJC app/sensors wiki seems to be very old and disorganized. Also, the result for many apps and sensors would depend on being a vanilla Aliendalvik or microG. Also, the microG setup method seems to have changed as of 3.4.x
You see where I’m getting at with these “alsos”? There are a lot of variables and not enough community (in users, resources and organization) for a fresh new user, like me, to have a smooth onboarding.
After 5 years trying to eke everything out of my N9, I had to use Android for a few years, but since my Android phone is reaching the end, I got a Sony XA2 and bought Sailfish.
The instructions for installing Sailfish on the XA2 were excellent. All the rest has been a struggle.
