Not long ago we received the joyous news that Plasma Mobile, the KDE Project operating system, had iso images available to develop and test the future Gnu / Linux-based operating system. Not long ago of that and we already have not just one but two methods to install Plasma Mobile on smartphones that have Android.
These methods are not intended for end users yet, that is, they we can't use it as the main smartphone, but if we can install it to see what is new or what KDE Plasma Mobile really has.
The first method and more recommendable is the installation of PosmartketOS. This operating system based on the Alpine distribution, already has Plasma Mobile and after its installation it will ask you if you want to install this system interface. In this case, PosmartketOS acts as an intermediary between the smartphone hardware and the Plasma Mobile software. PosmarketOS installation is available at the official website of the project.
The second method corresponds to installation through the Halium Project. Halium is a layer that will allow you to run any type of application on any smartphone. Thus, not only Android apps work but also Ubuntu Phone apps, Windows Phone apps, etc… Halium can be found in the repository of Github.
The Halium project is an incipient and not very mature project, at least not as mature as PosmarketOS, hence we recommend using the first method before the Halium project. In any case, both methods are not to install Plasma Mobile and have the operating system on the usual mobile but to test and test this new operating system that seems to be the third alternative for users. However Will it finally arrive on time or will it stay in these facilities? What do you think?
