Re: Barrier vs VNC Viewer

VNC viewer let's you access your Pi remotely.

Barrier lets you use different devices as if they are separate monitors

Re: Most stable OS & Browser combo for YouTube?

I've found Manjaro to be quite good.
It's not perfect but there's no "aw snap!" at all, and playback is pretty smooth.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 8GB GPU Memory Split

You need a good balance more GPU memory, and faster GPU clock. Increasing the GPU memory, has some gains. But that isn't great on it's own. A combo of memory and clock speed of the GPU can visually improve performance. I've been able to mod it and push another 5fps out of my Pi 4B 4GB on webGL sampl...

Re: Gnome For Pi: A script to make installing GNOME easier.

I've added an argument for GNOME with a limited amount of packages (-l/--lite)

I may have fixed audiio issues, but not sure.

Re: How "optimised" is Pi OS, compared to Ubuntu 20.04?

OK, thanks for the answers. I think Ubuntu 64 20.04 LTS server is the way I need to go, I can see from the ubuntu packaging website, it's got newer stuff (e.g. ocaml - one of my "problem packages"). Will I still get the bootloader/firmware/binary blobs delivered by apt on the Ubuntu release? (I am ...

XFCE, or "Meh. I don't care. A desktop is a desktop."

It just changed.

Re: HOWTO: Install the GNOME Desktop Enviroment on Raspberry Pi OS lite (With new script)

Animations are now disabled by default with GNOME For Pi script.

Audio issues still persist (only audio output appearing as "Dummy Output")

Again, I recommend bluetooth for the time being.

Re: HOWTO: Install the GNOME Desktop Enviroment on Raspberry Pi OS lite (With new script)

Audio issues continue.

I do have a feeling that I know what the problem is.

Whilst you wait for the fix, I suggest that if you have bluetooth headphones you use those instead. Bluetooth audio works without modification.

combine all the "apt -y install" lines, no need to do it many times. example: apt install -y gnome-shell rpi-chromium-mods you can "touch" & "echo" the file 51-admin.conf in the script, there's no need for a separate file to copy(cp) same thing for the fixes you can search & replace in a file to fi...

yeah, i did look at it. you can trim it down. apt-get install -y xorg gnome gnome-shell to just apt install -y gnome-shell it will pull in the rest. including the "chrome-gnome-shell" so you don't have to add that. i'd recommend installing chromium apt install -y rpi-chromium-mods for this, it's ju...
