When the screen is locked, may limit Termux's capability to save battery. So SSH may become slow or irresponsive and die eventually. You may have to access "Battery optimization" settings for Termux and select "Don't optimize".

Having the following in `~/.ssh/config`:

Host phone
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa_phone
Port 8022

would let me run:

ssh phone

and magically log in from now on!

Setting a static IP to your phone is recommended so that it doesn't change:

On the computer, run something like this:

ssh <ip address> -p 8022 -i /path/to/private_key

* run "ifconfig | grep inet" on Termux to get the IP of your Android.
* make sure Termux is running when you run this

I copied the id_rsa file to `~/.ssh/id_rsa_phone` on computer, so I can run something like this to connect:

ssh -p 8022 -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa_phone

If it connects successfully, you'll see "Welcome to Termux!" and a bunch of pkg commands to guide you through! Great! πŸ‘

pkg install openssh
sshd # start service, runs on port 8022
cd ~/.ssh
touch authorized_keys
chmod 600 authorized_keys
ssh-keygen # you can use defaults with no password
cat >> authorized_keys
chmod 600 authorized_keys

Then copy ~/.ssh/id_rsa from the Files app (there should be a Termux item on the left sidebar for easy access) to the computer you want to SSH from.

This video confirms that phone CPUs can even beat computers in some cases:

Watching this video from Arthur Reeder made me interested to try SSH-ing into my phone...

So, this article was helpful in my Android SSH journey:

Just found out has a package manager and you can install packages just like apt.

pkg search <package>
pkg install <package>

It doesn't require anything else except Termux. This "pkg" thing is built in!

Installed Termux from F-droid to enjoy this and they seem to have a good enough collection of packages. Text editors like emacs & vim, servers like lighttpd & apache, ffmpeg, imagemagick etc. They even have an X11 repo although haven't tried it.

#EasyOS seems to be the direct answer to #PuppyLinux's root-by-default approach for a live user session - everything is run as separate containers, and no interaction by default with the mountable media, not even the LiveUSB!

Worth a try?

"This is actually an amazing argument in favor of piracy. ... If you paid full sticker price for Adobe Creative Suite 4 and your machine dies and you reinstall the OS and you need to reinstall the program, you can take that program that you paid full price for and it won't work. A pirated version will work. The actual original doesn't." πŸ˜†

Today I wanted to find a way to watch IPTV on my #Pinephone.

After multiple tests, I had the best experience with MPV combined with mpv-iptv (

@strypey I think back to 2010 when my dad's Spanish Village didn't have affordable internet (basically Satellite or bust) and I was there for two weeks. Without an internet connection. I remember three days of anxiety and then something happened; I just stopped caring about it, and honestly, it was fantastic.

Wow, just found out Arthur Reeder ( @art ) is now on ! He has lots of videos on different Linux tools and hardware - and be assured, his content is very unique, different than any other channel out there.


Very happy to see him on

Great lineup! πŸ™‚

Selfhosting is something I always like to promote.

More fun to build something IMO than outside, partially controlled server virtual/cloud based hosting.

+ control inside network/server opens opportunities to play with new ideas/integrations/security.

How to make your PeerTube videos much more discoverable on the Fediverse:

Use tags without spaces in them, for example, use "OpenSource" instead of "Open Source", "ArtHistory" instead of "Art History", "PianoMusic" instead of "Piano Music".

Why this works:

Mastodon includes PeerTube videos in its search results, but any tags with spaces in them are ignored.

To make your PeerTube videos searchable on Mastodon, remove spaces from your tags.
