Re: How many would be interested in a "real" App Store?

Sorry, I'm a bit confused. How many stars did Synaptic get? Or would you like to me to add a screen shot? Are you asking how many "stars" did synaptic get in the app store I made? Actually, my app store is very much different than the app store I envisioned in the first topic. There is no rating sy...

Re: How many would be interested in a "real" App Store?

If someone was skeptical of an app's legitimacy, they could easily review the app's install script themselves. Am I to understand then that Botspot/pi-apps does not contain any binary downloads but rather only scripts that download the actual binaries from elsewhere? I guess that is better from a s...

That only leaves one security concern then. Who are you and why should anyone trust you? Please don't think that I'm suggesting you might be up to go good. No, I understand, and I've asked myself that question. As far as I can tell, there is no way to remove myself from the picture entirely. Someon...

Re: How many would be interested in a "real" App Store?

Any more is useless fluff and will get deleted. Sorry for the "useless fluff". So far no one has answered the meat of my question. Where is the security in all of this? I agree, the app store I envisioned here would have been a security nightmare. To answer your question, the RPi app store I ended ...

Re: What is Best Arduino IDE Build for RPI OS (32)

Others uses a similar process but put things in other directories. A forum search should find those posts. If you aren't so fond of typing a bunch of commands, you can install the latest Arduino using Pi-Apps . (It's a simple RPi app store I made myself, now with over 10,000 users ) Once you have P...

Thanks for the great effort to make zoom on RPi available to a wide community. There's obviously a big interest into this, and it's a pity that zoom are not interested in this.

You can use "scrot" to take screenshots with the "PrtSc" key and save them to a file. Or if you have GIMP installed, that can do it and is more flexible....

Re: Linux Program Similar To MS Paint?

Over the years, I've tried all the paint-style programs available in the RPi repositories.
The best one which behaves almost identical to MS Paint is KolourPaint.

Code: Select all

Yes of course
OK, and what about my other 2 questions?:
Once again: are you using my vdesktop beta version?
And what command do you have to run for this mate desktop to launch?
Also, does running x-terminal-emulator launch a terminal on your system? Or do you get "command not found"?

A lot of people won't be too thrilled by the analytics unless you make it opt-in but then its useless.
True. The type of analytics I'm looking to get are anonymous, like how Github does it with their clone counter. Just a graph displaying how many people cloned the repo during a 24-hour period.

Re: Running remotely via Android?

RealVNC is probably your best option, if using the GPIO is absolutely necessary . Using RealVNC to click buttons is rather easy, but to drag-n-drop takes a double-tap. Scratch is 100% drag-n-drop. Those double-taps will get tiresome quickly. If you can do without GPIO, then maybe running Scratch dir...
