Re: Video Chat on the Raspberry 4

google also has a zoom clone called "meets". so it has a client (and probably a chromium addon) and a webpage for conferencing. I wonder if it would run any better than Duo?

Re: Running Zoom video conferencing client on the Pi

Zoom has a linux client. But I have no idea if there is a ARM version

Re: How many would be interested in a "real" App Store?

I believe that there are software out there that does something almost like this already.

You can eve use the same button to wake up the pi (not sure ...

Or, you might consider using LiFePo batteries which many people use to run 3.3 v microcontrollers without a regulator at all (the voltage is lower than lipo).

There at least used to be a simple browser add-on which worked. Forget what it's called. But it was basically capable of rendering text, so it wasn't really suitable for real browsing but worked in an emergency when you needed to check something simple.

Re: Files going 'read only'

Perhaps the device is mounting read only at times and you think that it is the files. You might see an error message in dmesg about this. You can list and change read only flag with hdparm.

It might be a sign that the drive is going bad, they tend to do this when they are showing hardware issues
