Re: Debian(xfce) + XBMC + RaspBerry Pi [FR/ENG]

Fri Apr 27, 2012 9:42 am

English version :

Hello to all the community,

I want to share our knowledge for the installation of a "debian light" (XFCE) on RaspBerryPi with two sessions:

Session 1: User interface (admin) with debian (xfce) + browser (same firefox)  + SSH + VPN.

Session 2: XBMC with auto start + radio + emulators + link to NAS…

Everything plugged into a TV with Remote Control (XBMC) Keyboard and Wireless Mouse (User).

The aim is that the computer displays the sessions if after three seconds nothing changes the RaspberryPi XBMC starts on Debian, otherwise we XFCE interface.

The principle is to do some of the same XbmcBuntu but a much more lighter and more accessible over the network.

With VPN software you can connect Android phone and use samba to download any file or use other software to control this.






Here is my site: http://linuxbmc.wordpress.com/

Any body are interessing ?

French version :

Bonjour à toute la communauté,

Je souhaites mettre en commun nos connaissances pour l"installation d"un "debian light" (XFCE) sur RaspBerryPi avec 2 sessions :


session 1 : Utilisateur debian (admin) avec interface(xfce) + Navigateur(firefox) + VPN + SSH.
session 2 : Xbmc avec auto démarrage de XBMC + radios + emulateurs…




Le tout branché sur une TV avec Télécommande(XBMC) et Clavier souris sans fil(Utilisateur).

Le but est que l"ordinateur affiche les sessions si au bout de 3 secondes rien ne change le RaspberryPi démarre sur Debian XBMC, sinon nous avons l"interface XFCE.

Le principe est de faire un peu à l"identique de XbmcBuntu mais sur une distribution beaucoup plus légère et plus accessible sur le réseau.

Have your searched the forums for XBMC?  This has been discussed a lot, and I think the XBMC team are on the case.

Yes like : http://passion-xbmc.org/

but they don't speak about install them on RaspBerry Pi (optimised), and I take knowledge of the forum to show my project.

Thanks !

But this is an extract of OpenElec Wiki :

"Unlike other XBMC distributions, OpenELEC isn't based on Ubuntu, Debian or Arch - in fact, it's not based on any distribution"

In fact, it's impossible to install other software like VPN, Gmote, etc.

I have already tested this OS but they limited on XBMC only.

About rbaspmc, I didn't know, I work on, but I can see it's not complete...

Thanks !

If I have a answer, I post it !

[update objectives]

I want to share our knowledge for the installation of a "debian light" (XFCE) on RaspBerryPi :


Based on Debian and derivatives (Ubuntu / Mint)
Read USB flash drive, NTFS and Apple automatically.
Work environment very light (XFCE) and compatible with most of your computers.
Possibility of sharing (Smb) and connection between different network (VPN).
System requirements <256 mb ram | <1 GB of disk space.
Ability to add a web server with a management "cloud".
Support for RCA cable, S-Video and HDMI.
Automatic start session "XBMC" for TV | Start session on alternative "Mind" for the office.
Connection for remote control smartphone.

Everything plugged into a TV with Remote Control (XBMC) Keyboard and Wireless Mouse (User).

The aim is that the computer displays the sessions if after three seconds nothing changes the RaspberryPi XBMC starts on Debian, otherwise we XFCE interface.

The principle is to do some of the same XbmcBuntu but a much more lighter and more accessible over the network.

This seems interesting. I have got here via your reply in my thread, re Nasbox Media streamer.

Keep us updated with your developments.

Thanks

Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.

To install Xfce on debian 7 wheezy

Code: Select all

# apt-get install xorg xfce4 xfce4-goodies thunar-archive-plugin synaptic gdebi wicd
To install extra XFCE packages

Code: Select all

# apt-get install xdg-utils xfce4-power-manager xfce4-goodies htop bzip2 zip unzip unrar-free
There are more gui to choose from http://namhuy.net/1085/install-gui-on-d ... heezy.html
