Yes of course
A small, affordable computer with free resources to help people learn, make things, and have fun
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"?
This is interesting. Do you know if there is an img with a mate desktop, that I could download, for testing on vdesktop?
Hmm. I've never seen that error before.michael9000 wrote: ↑Sun Dec 13, 2020 1:58 amThe option to create incremental images is really interesting but when attempting to create an image of my SD card using the following procedure:
IMG MODE -> SD to IMG, specify name and location, click OK
I get the error:
sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified
I have considered doing exactly that, but considering the time required, and the tiny number of users who would actually benefit, I concluded it wasn't worth the time/effort.
I send a patch with similar functionality:
Uhh, did you try pressing the Y key and hitting Enter?neal1 wrote: ↑Sat Jan 09, 2021 8:01 pmhi Botspot,
After several weeks, i tried to install pi power tools on my rpi 4 4 gb, 128 gb card
installation went fine, i downloaded 3.7 gb img,
but on clicking booth it is getting stuck in boot console showing
Systemd-nspawn, Xephyr and Expect need to be installed for vdesktop to work. Proceed? [Y/n]
and nothing happens, i made image of buster 2 or 3 times, but boot always fails showing some dependency failed, please check for issue.
Hmm, then maybe it's time to stop using Pi Power Tools to run vdesktop virtual machines, and just use vdesktop standalone.
Code: Select all
git clone https://github.com/Botspot/vdesktop sudo ENABLE_VIRGL=no ~/vdesktop/vdesktop /path/to/your.img
How proficient are you with the command line? Have you read the instructions for vdesktop?neal1 wrote: ↑Mon Jan 11, 2021 2:06 pmstill not working
