Re: [GUIDE] Raspbian Lite with PIXEL/LXDE/XFCE/MATE/i3 GUI

Hello, Thanks for this guide. I am on Stretch lite. I need a GUI just to debug a Python script and I would run the GUI via ssh -X 192.168.... from my Mac. Let’s assume, I want to install PIXEL or something lighter if there is. What are the minimal packages I need to install to remotely run the GUI?...

Hi, how do I install the sound drivers?

best regards
Should be installed by default since it is an essential driver. Probably you meant like a sound manager? Depends on what desktop environment you want to use.

Re: [GUIDE] Communicate between iOS and Raspberry Pi using MQTT

Why are you using a git clone to install Mosquitto. It's better to get the stable version from https://mosquitto.org/2013/01/mosquitto-debian-repository/ When I started researching about MQTT at the time there were some issues of the repository not working after the release of Raspbian Stretch. To ...

Removing packages from full Raspbian kind of defeats its purpose. You're better off starting clean. Some packages wil...

You only compared Raspbian Jessie Lite without Pixel to Raspbian Jessie Lite with Pixel.

Noob here, and I have a possibly silly but simple question. If I install Pixel or Mate over Raspbian Lite, does the auto USB mount still work like in regular Raspbian/Pixel? The reason I'm asking is I had the RetroPie image (built on top of Raspbian Lite I believe) and used the setup script to inst...
