On an install on a J500-FN, is there supposed to be an option under settings > system > languages and input > On-screen keyboard > Android Keyboard (AOSP) called "gesture typing"? It's missing and gesture typing/swype/swipe is not working. My partner's LOS 18 on an S4 has the option but it's weirdly not on my J5.

Can anyone recommend a pragmatic solution? One more thing, in a moment of paranoia/poor judgement, I installed the enforced ROM, it seems to work fine so far. Maybe I should swap to permissive.

I'd be grateful for any advice on this.
The only issue with enforcing was people reporting not working sim on non j5nlte models.

On SM-J500FN everything is working with enforcing builds

I can confirm this option is available on my LineageOS 19.1 builds (Android 12.1).

I can not check on LineageOS 18.1 at this moment but maybe is related to Gapps

OK, thanks, hopefully someone else will confirm if they have it on the LOS 18.1.

I think I saw elsewhere a possible solution which I could understand, it involved downloading Gapps and copying over a particular file. However, at the moment, with an enforcing build I think I have a quite secure setup, but that would require rooting which I have been able to avoid because of the Samsung setup. I'm parroting that, I can tell I don't really understand all this rooting stuff. I had to root my lovely Moto-G XT1032 and I can see I can get access to root that I don't have with my J5 at the moment. BTW, the J5 is an upgrade from the XT1032 (running unofficial 14.1 very well indeed) which doesn't have an SD card slot. I am really enjoying being able to listen to my music collection on the J5.

OK, that's good to know, I'll stick with enforced unless something goes Pete Tong. Thanks.

The only mild niggle when watching YouTube in full screen it isn't the correct ratio size.. It's slightly zoomed in! It could be just me....probably just me tbf! :D

OK, thanks, hopefully someone else will confirm if they have it on the LOS 18.1.

I think I saw elsewhere a possible solution which I could understand, it involved downloading Gapps and copying over a particular file. However, at the moment, with an enforcing build I think I have a quite secure setup, but that would require rooting which I have been able to avoid because of the Samsung setup. I'm parroting that, I can tell I don't really understand all this rooting stuff. I had to root my lovely Moto-G XT1032 and I can see I can get access to root that I don't have with my J5 at the moment. BTW, the J5 is an upgrade from the XT1032 (running unofficial 14.1 very well indeed) which doesn't have an SD card slot. I am really enjoying being able to listen to my music collection on the J5.
I can confirm that those instructions work on this rom, I did it a few days ago. You have to copy a GApps file to a particular location. If you don't want to root your device you can also boot into your recovery (assuming you have TWRP), mount the system partition and use adb-push to move the file to the right location.

Hi, that's really helpful, thanks. I have followed the standard LOS install so I don't have TWRP, I have the LOS recovery. Additional to that, I had trouble getting adb to work once I had added that recovery and wanted to install the LOS. So I just attached the SD card directly to the PC and transferred the LOS zip, and then LOS recovery allowed me to install from the SD card.

I'm catching up on work whilst I run this enforced version to see if it's working for me more generally. I'll have to either go permissive, root, or try and tackle the TWRP (which might solve my adp issue)... and then gesture typing.

Enforcing builds are not recommended for daily usage the permissive has less power and heat issues.

If you're using Lineageos recovery (which it's deprecated now because our recovery partition is too small to fit it and it's broken for our device) I'd recommend you to use Odin mode and flash the latest twrp from twrp.me

Thank you for your Support! This is a great ROM and it runs good and smooth. At the moment i use the Seperience-rom-a8-2018 port. Runs more smooth... but it's realy old and no more security updates. I think i'll switch again to this 18.1 ROM.

The rom feels pretty smooth and snappy, But it is such a power hungry rom. For some reason the power usage is like 700-1000 mah and CPU Load stays 100% almost all the time for a fresh install and no other apps running in the background.

I went back to Bliss OS 14.7(Android 11), the power usage on it like 200-500mah even with browsers like brave running. Given it does not have GApps.

Other than that, Thank you David for keeping the Device alive with your hard work.
