I still wish that fullscreen mode with mouse triggered popup transport bar was possible.
You can do that by selecting X11 video output (XCB) . Performance will be similar to that of x11 splitter for RPi in windowed mode

Re: Outdated youtube-dl package

I think you should uninstall the repo version and install latest version of youtube-dl using pip.

Code: Select all

sudo pip install youtube-dl
Or

Code: Select all

pip install --user youtube-dl

However, I can't get the image to work. It appears that the Boot partition is ok, but the Linux (ext4) partition is corrupt.
How did you test that ext4 is corrupt?

Re: Failed to clone a running raspbian stretch system

Finally I have found the problem.
running sudo fdisk -l shows message "Partition table entries are not in disk order".
There was some problem in partitioning. So i deleted all partitions and recreated them. then copied all files using the script.
Problem solved !

Re: Failed to clone a running raspbian stretch system

I am not using dd command to clone the card, I am using cp command to copy all files of the partitions (see my script). So copying from larger to smaller sdcard should not create problem. And I am copying from 16GB card to 16GB card.
I did not get any error or warning in console.

Why not use Raspbian Stretch with Desktop built in SD Card Copier utility, it clones a running OS to an SD Card in a USB SDHC Card Reader.
I have to try that as last option.

But my question is why my method is not working now, though it worked for last 5 times?

Re: Bash Scripts and xterm error.

Check if xterm package exists.

dpkg -l | grep xterm
and see if you get any output.

If xterm package does not exist , install it

Using underpowered Raspberry pi will not make any damage to the raspberry pi. It will fry the raspberry pi only if the output voltage is greater than 5.25 V.

ffmpeg is not installed by default in stretch lite. but if you install it using apt-get, you will get hw-accleration enabled ffmpeg.

BTW, hw-accleration support on ffmpeg was already added more than 8 months ago, not in this release.

To boot to e17 directly you have to select e17 as default x-session-manager. To do this run this command

sudo update-alternatives --config x-session-manager
and select e17.
Then reboot.
