The User Friendliness of Pidora but under Raspbian

I noticed how Pidora is very user friendly with it's design. It has a first boot setup utility, a LightDM GTK greeter (automatic boot into a graphic login screen), and XFCE as it's default desktop environment. However, I want all of this on Raspian because I'm much more familiar with Debian than Fed...

Re: RetroPie Setup - Auto-installer/updater for RetroArch ga

so I copied a GBA BIOS file over to /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi/ and the gba roms folder, but it's still kicking me back to EmulationStation. Am i suppose to place it somewhere else? I attempted to load gpSP through the command line but I am getting the following error message: ./g...

Re: [Tutorial] gpSP - Full Speed GBA Emulator with Sound and

I finally found the solution. The runcommand.sh script isn't found because es_systems.cfg led it to the wrong directory. I created a separate user other than the default "pi" (it's "brianxp7") but the configuration file for GBA didn't know that. Here's what I mean. It was orignally this: DESCNAME=Ga...

Re: [Tutorial] gpSP - Full Speed GBA Emulator with Sound and

@Stormatree - if you run xboxdrv without the "--silent" argument, it'll print inputs as they come (and you might want to make sure you don't end the command with "&" or you probably won't be able to turn it off). @BrianXP7 - it should pull directly from DPR's repository on GitHub. That's strange. T...

Ubiquity-like interface for first-boot set-up

Is it possible to include a setup utility ran at first boot similar to Ubiquity? (Adding users, times zones, basically everything raspi-config does but with a more graphical frontend.)

Also, can it start the LightDM GTK greeter on boot?

Re: Raspbian vs Pidora??

In the case with BerryBoot, no. You select a list of images you want to install but they are a bit outdated. I never used BerryBoot; I thought that was a different product, so what does that have anything to do with NOOBS? Oh, I misunderstood you. Now I know you're talking about the BerryBoot-based...

Re: The Hidden: Source on Steam

The Source engine could barely run Half-Life 2: Lost Coast on an old 2.30 GHz Pentium 4 with Intel Integrated Graphics (82865g). We can forget about the Source engine altogether not just because it's not ported to ARMv6.

Re: Raspbian vs Pidora??

So, in order to use NOOBS is it necessary to install the complete Raspbian OS first and then you would have multiboot capability, or is it a menu that pops up first and resides outside of any OS that you want to install? The reason I ask is that I don't want to install Raspbian as it would be a was...

I guess personal preference?

Also, I agree the Raspbian image is old. I hate having to run a 4 hour long update.

Re: Minecraft Pi Edition-mine runs without terminal

It's not weird at all. It runs on a separate window that doesn't necessarily rely on the terminal. A simple chmod command and a double-click is all that's needed to launch most Linux binaries.

I just want to mention Whitey v0.3 is out and with a better tutorial. (By better, I mean easier to setup and has troubleshooting solutions.) You can get it at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/whitey.

Hide LXTerminal when launching Pi Store

I'm a little annoyed that a separate terminal window is launched along with the Pi Store's GUI. Personally, it come off as looking ugly. It feels unnecessary for normal use unless required for real-time diagnostics and troubleshooting. Since the Raspberry Pi is targeted at children, it may freak the...

I believe the Makefile is missing an include directory. You can run this sed command (from RetroPie) to insert it into the Makefile (it just pastes the string into line 23): sed -i '23iCFLAGS += -I/opt/vc/include/interface/vmcs_host/linux' Makefile I applied the command but I still get the same res...

Thanks! I kind of got the hang of it now. I'm only used to a lot of scripts with short lines of code. *derp* So how do I map the SELECT button with right Ctrl? Is it like this:

Re: [Tutorial] gpSP - Full Speed GBA Emulator with Sound and

Does anyone know how I can remap the controls for the keyboard? The pre-built binary doesn't have an option for this so I'm assuming it's somewhere in the source. I tried looking for it in "input.c" but I quickly got confused.
