Re: Ungoogled Chromium Browser

Would it be possible for Raspberry Pi OS to switch to support the "Ungoogled" Chromium browser instead of the current "Googled" Chromium browser? There's not much "Google" to chromium anymore, with google removing google features (including sync) from chromium recently.

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

Hello Giga_Pi, You have done good job creating this. Saying those on after reading all comments who have installed and its working for them. But for nerd like me did not think of backing up my system before trying this out. Am agreeing this due to lack of my knowledge. But if you can just put this ...

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

Luckily, I have actually found a way of reverting the changes. If you run: sudo apt remove gnome-session gnome-shell nautilus gedit gnome-terminal seahorse gnome-tweaks piwiz network-manager then: sudo apt auotremove you can then re-install using: sudo apt install raspberrypi-ui-mods pi-greeter rpd-...

Re: X11 vs Wayland - Wow!

Whilst this is certainly not the same... Wayland does suck on Raspberry Pi OS with GNOME. Moving over to X11 makes it run much faster. Its quite noticable! This said, it will probably be out of date, so optimisations and the like won't yet have been implemented, so maybe not a fair comparison? Anywa...

Re: raspberry pi4 4gb

This is not the right section of the forum for this, general discussion would be better.

Also, what were these other operating systems and where did you get them from?

Re: STICKY: Raspberry Pi OS (64 bit) beta test version feedback

Thought I would mention here... 64Bit OS was mostly fine for the time I tested it. I wanted to see whether GNOME For Pi would work on 64Bit Beta. I was pretty impressed with the performance of GNOME on 64Bit Raspberry Pi OS (surprising improvement over armhf), and most things ran fine, but ran into ...

Re: RasberryPi 400: good choice for a freelancer writer/ghostwriter?

Depends. Like people have already said, the keyboard could work against you. Depends on what kind of keyboard you're used to. It should be fine for the text editor you're working with. And a bit of web browsing won't kill it. However, you may be better off with a Pi 4B paired with a keyboard of your...
