Have a look at partitions.json for Emteria. It might be best to download it to a USB stick first.

Yes, I am aware of his work. Can't remember if his image includes the Mate desktop.
But in any case, it is not included in PINN.

As far as I can tell, a compatible 3B+ version of Ubuntu-mate is not available. Please see https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/raspberry-pi-b-plus-support/17791 You may be able to roll your own if you find the appropriate threads on that forum.

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

ProjectSpaces are for common linux OS layouts with 2 partitions. Android normally has 3 partitions.
You would have to do some manual repartitioning to get it to fit. Better to backup and start again unless you know what you're doing.

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Yes I know, but unlike in Berryboot, the name of an OS in PINN is used as a reference for many things : The tar.xz distribution files, the flavour config files, the icon name, the folder name, etc etc. So to simply change the name will break a lot of things. That's why I'm thinking of adding the "ni...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

I think the "rename" option is a good idea, especially with the ability to install multiple versions of the same OS now, otherwise it will be difficult to tell them apart. But is it really a "rename" function, or an additional "nickname"? Does it still need to be linked to the underlying OS for rein...

Don't worry about that error message. There is nothing we can do about it. Previously that message would pop up repeatedly every few seconds but they made a firmware change so it only produces the error message once now. But such an error message is useful, it's just a shame it displays here! It occ...

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

@Haris1977
1. Raspbian should not be asking to expand the filesystem in noobs/pinn install.
2. Raspbian needs about 8gb these days on its own, so try just installing that to see if it is a space issue.
3. Better to use stock tested OSes before rolling your own custom ones.

Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

If I wanted to add a new OS, how do I make the project space bigger so each project space is 1/8th of the total drive space? Not just 600mb? 600MB is the minimum size, but PINN will expand each O...
