Re: Installing Discord On Raspberry Pi

Well since this thread was necro'd, I might as well help any future viewers out. The Pi-Apps Raspberry Pi app store has Discord in it. And unlike PiKISS, this Discord is a much newer version, with fixed bugs and more features. Install Pi-Apps with: git clone https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps ~/pi-a...

Netflix on Chromium v84 working! (Chromium Media Edition)

In case you don't know, chromium-browser v84 has broken the now-familiar Widevine DRM implementation . Being the developer of Pi-Apps , I've done my best to provide solutions. For example, I've made it quick and easy to downgrade back to chromium v78. But for (obvious) reasons, downgrading is not id...

I don't see why not, but I don't do much in terms of forum admin/moderation nowadays. I'll flag it up and see if anybody has any objections.

Do you have a thread for it already?
I don't have a general Pi-Apps thread yet. It won't be long from now though.

Isn't that what Chromium Media Edition already does by downloading it from Ventz' server? Or is this another way doesn't doesn't require having somebody other than Google hosting the file? Yeah but, it doesn't work. ;) I suppose you could say I'm creating a ventz-style script that doesn't involve a...

As much as I like Pi-Apps after playing around with it yesterday, minor correction that widevine does work once you put the files in the right place. With never version of chromium it's not enough to just drop .so file somewhere. If you search for widevine-flash_armhf.sh, then you should be set. Ye...

Re: Stop GUI Task Bar from Showing Up on Auto Start

Thanks for the reply.

No, your app should run fine without the panel. However, uninstalling the panel may be a bad ...

Re: Stop GUI Task Bar from Showing Up on Auto Start

Unless I'm mistaken, lxpanel is not set to be "always on top". This sounds like a timing issue: your app launches first, then the lxpanel window launches afterwards, and is placed on top. Should be an easy fix: just delay your autostarted program by a few seconds to let lxpanel load first....
