Description

Hi,

I just bought myself a Pinephone Pro. It runs Debian Unstable, with absolutely all apps working. The only issue with this type of device, is that the screen is very small. In this case, Quassel can't cope with such a small screen. That's a shame, as it is otherwise fully functional.

It'd be great if some upstream maintainers in Quassel could have a look, and make the interface work in a very small window. There shouldn't be too much work needed for this. Just detect the screen size, and make the necessary adjustments for it. Note that the Pinephone can work in both protrait and landscape mode, and that the landscape mode makes a lot of sense with the additional keyboard.

Thanks for making such a nice IRC client. I use Quassel + Quassel-core every day using Debian on my laptop, and sometimes on my Android (though I would like to get rid and just use Mobian, if this bug can be addressed).

Cheers,

Thomas Goirand

FYI, a way to detect if we're on a small screen, is to see if libhandy is installed.
