Re: Multiple Frame buffer beta testers wanted

Out of curiosity, why? What use would having two displays have in NOOBS or PINN? Well, maybe not so much for NOOBS, more so for PINN. 1. There are several users (gamers mostly I think) who use a DSI touchscreen and a HDMI. I have added functionality in PINN to alter the priority of these screens as...

I'd like to put this into PINN. Would it be possible to build it into PINN/NOOBS's buildroot environment?

Re: Pi Is Too Complicated

Minor correction that the networking changes have mostly come from the UI work, not from upstream Debian. dhcpcd is still not found on a typical Debian install. However, some people have the misconception that /etc/network/interfaces is the standard way to configure the network in Debian. Or that we...

Re: Headless Zero W can't create wireless AP

On Raspberry Pi Desktop, that entry runs pipanel (sudo apt install pipanel). If you would like to run PCManFM's built-in preferences dialog, you'd need to comment out the pref_apps line in ~/.config/pcmanfm/LXDE-pi/desktop-items-0.conf

It doesn't really matter, since it shouldn't be used unless the hardware is enabled. If you want to remove unnecessary packages and save ~300kB of space, sure.

Does the error cause further issues, like leaving the package in an unconfigured state and preventing further installs, or is that it?

Re: Why does the RPF care about how many desktops I have ?

I think for the Pi platform the current system is the best option.

Is there a way to merge the updates somehow? Sounds complicated, but a method to reinstate the modified setting but leave the default settings not changed but maybe updated would be nice.

Re: Why does the RPF care about how many desktops I have ?

Unfortunately the current system for updating some of the config files results in the whole file being backed up and then replaced, so all of your own changes get reverted. The point isn't to intentionally reset where you put your taskbar, your desktop background, where your panel goes and so on, bu...
