Re: [GUIDE] Raspbian Lite with RPD/LXDE/XFCE/MATE/i3/Openbox/X11 GUI

Its a teeny tiny little SBC that costs under $60 USD, with a processor that is significantly outgunned by most current middle to top tier smartphones.. It is never going to run the super heavy GUI environments that are built with higher end X86 laptops/desktops as targets. Its target audience and t...

Re: Q&A topic for heavy desktop enviroments

I would add Mate to the list. Lighter than Gnome or KDE but richer set of options than LXDE. I find it easier to tweak to what I want. Runs very well on the Pi 3B+ and 4B. Ubuntu Mate runs well on the 3B+. It is not available for the 4B yet. Raspbian Lite (Buster) + Mate installs cleanly and works ...

The ones I personally know of are: *Gnome *KDE Plasma 5 *Cinnamon *MATE Please comment if you think there are others. The ones that I know currently work ...

Re: [GUIDE] Raspbian Lite with RPD/LXDE/XFCE/MATE/i3/Openbox/X11 GUI

Okay, with the release of buster, I had a few mixed emotions, with the desktops I could install. Negative: *KDE Plasma no longer works on Pi 4 or 3+ Positives: *We have Gnome3 *We have Cinnamon So not all bad. With the two desktop enviroments that do work, It's best to use OpenGL, because without it...

Re: Don't want Raspian Buster!

Question, can anyone explain why KDE plasma works okay with OpenGL on stretch, but not buster? Thanks! What error messages do you see when trying to run KDE plasma? No errors, just Kwin won't startup for a while. Also, the system settings in KDE Plasma crash every time I come out of certain setting...

Re: Pi4 as Desktop computer

I recently tried cinnamon on my raspberry pi 3B+ with buster, and it ran great! I was able to get some nice themes installed in order for it to look really nice, and it did look amazing!

Re: KDE plasma problems on Pi 3B+/4

Hey! I had problems with KDE plasma on my 3B+, but I've got it running really well. Here is my setup: I use stretch instead of buster, as I found buster didn't work so good. I'm not quite sure why. I also enable the OpenGL driver with full KMS in the raspi-config I then install the kde plasma deskto...

The machine is an average laptop that'sactually a family shared laptop.

That's probably because the my laptop is very very slow. Anyway, I t...

Re: Don't want Raspian Buster!

Yeah I use that when I can't use noobs, but I find using that is a pain as I am not an administrator, so I always need an administrtor around, which is why I use NOOBS instead of etcher.

Re: Don't want Raspian Buster!

Right, first off, Theme and Appearance was there, and was 1/3 of the only appearance setting there were available.

Second, KDE Plasma had worked with stretch, not buster.
