Mike has done a brilliant job with Fruitbox. As far as your keyboard not working, any button you have defined as touch in the fruitbox.btn file won't work from the keyboard while Fruitbox is running. I have put only the buttons my skin uses in the file so that other buttons still work from the keyboard. Mine is a custom skin that is touch song, volume up and down, left and right, alpha left and right, and power off. That leaves the other buttons active on the keyboard.willbuden wrote: ↑Fri Nov 22, 2019 3:59 pmFinally got fruitbox working with the Official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen. It took me a few days of reading through this discussion to understand that you have to runto transfer control of the buttons on the keyboard to the buttons on the screen. You have to actually touch the screen (anywhere) for each button that will appear on the screen. Now, I've got it and really love this app.
Code: Select all
The only other issue is that I could not get my Logitech K830 wireless keyboard to work with it. The K830 has a USB dongle that works with the keyboard. The K830 works fine in the Raspbian Lite shell and with Full Raspian.
I've been looking for an app like this for 20 years. Yes, really! I never found anything that did such a great job of emulating a real jukebox.
Another thing, aside from the notes above, this is the ONLY Linux program that installed and ran the first time (in my experience). I usually have to find some missing dependency and install it only to find the dependency needs a dependency.
Thank you for all your hard work. This is a truly welcome and fun app. AWESOME!
Hope this helps.
