Re: blank screen after boot noobs pi 3b

i think i might have installed thinlinx. it don’t do much, but i don’t know what it is supposed to do. i can see an ugly picture of a penguin with stupid hair, a surfboard and a cleavage, a big improvement on the black emptiness of raspian in my opinion.

Re: blank screen after boot noobs pi 3b

purged pixel and installed mate. no change but i do see the mate desktop for a second.
i have tried a range of leads an psu s at my disposal all have the same result (none of them are pi specific products). i have no other monitor to test.
