Re: Retropie / and normal desktop environment.

I think the point is that also the installation of the OP is broken just like mine (even at some different parts), so we both need a complete install script.

Re: Retropie / and normal desktop environment.

I personally wouldn't use Buster because I have an old Pi 2 and I am using wiringPi for many many applications, so I'd stay with Stretch anyway. Additionally, setting up Retropie manually is really a huge effort, too. So which are the detailed single apt-get install commands I have to type in for th...

Re: Retropie / and normal desktop environment.

which is the complete, entire script or cmd list to get a correctly working pixel desktop on a given retropie system which will work like the full Stretch GUI?
what I've done so far is
sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods

Re: Retropie / and normal desktop environment.

$ lightdm
command not found

$ lxde-pi-shutdown-helper
command not found

by my cmd above
sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods
I actually expected to get the entire Pixel desktop like for my standard Stretch OS GUI... :roll:

Re: Retropie / and normal desktop environment.

I tried the same on my Pi 2 v1.1 with Retropie. After sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods it starts to install but always ends up with 9 errors 404 (mostly about samba+python, url not found). same repeatedly about --fix-missing entering then startlxde-pi or startx finally do nothing at all (com...

Re: WiringPi Sudo

if wiringPi won't work on Pi4: sell your Pi4 at Ebay and purchase a Pi 3 B+, run it by Stretch (in that case wiringPi is included by a apt package)
But hopefully someday someone will have mercy and port it also to Pi4, for further maintainance. 8)

Re: Libraries for SPI and GPIO in 2020

GPIO_HANDLE gpio = GPIO_Open(0x3F200000, 0x1000);
is this weird + cryptic cmd true also for Pi2 v1.1 on Stretch?

Re: Minecraft Pi edition (Stretch): IDs of the inventory items?

thank you very much, but actually, unfortunately: no :(
If I point on either icon in the "E" chart, I must know what the ID would be (e.g., looking to a reference picture), and if I want a special ID, I must know in which line and which column of the "E" chart it is listed.

no one who knows a chart table showing inventory item IDs in exactly the same order like in the menu picture which opens at key stroke "E" ?

Re: Minecraft Pi edition (Stretch): how to create an infinite plain of sand?

yes, ok, well, perhaps a little, but one needed to copy all field blocks to tmp1 in each generation cycle, to read intermediate user actions, and at the very latest it's even slower than computing the "real" mc field with 1 single tmp map then, unfortunately.
Anyway, it was a nice challenge ;)

Re: Minecraft Pi edition (Stretch): how to create an infinite plain of sand?

perhaps multithreading could speed it up, calculating the neighbours from either field corner to the center point, and then writing all tmp values to the fields, also multi-threaded. But I actually doubt that Python and mc would support that, tbh... :roll:

Re: Minecraft Pi edition (Stretch): how to create an infinite plain of sand?

yes, that was my approach before 8-) :
actually I already tried that, but it was not noteably faster, regrettably.
OTOH it then was lacking of a user-interface (putting optionally new blocks manually to the fields using the mc player)

Re: Minecraft Pi edition (Stretch): how to create an infinite plain of sand?

update: it's for my mc Python implementation of Conway's Game Of Life - and now it works! (silly bugs before!) Nonetheless, it's incredible slow on my Pi 2, even on a 20x20 field .... and 200x200 (wishfully even up to 1000x1000) once had been intended! #!/usr/bin/python import mcpi.minecraft as mine...

Re: Minecraft Pi edition (Stretch): how to create an infinite plain of sand?

indeed, it's extremely unsymmetrical: begin min x -13 min z -178 max x 242 max z 77 256 256 end I'm afraid, for my purposes I needed a symmetrical map round (0,0) or a (0,0) origin map, so either x=-100...+100, z=-100...+100 or perhaps x=0...200, z=0...200 but what mc provides is too odd, and probab...
