Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

As far as I can tell, a compatible 3B+ version of Ubuntu-mate is not available.
Please see https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/raspber ... port/17791
You may be able to roll your own if you find the appropriate threads on that forum.
Or you could try the Raspex version in PINN which is Ubuntu 18.04 with LXDE.

Yes, I am aware of his work. Can't remember if his image includes the Mate desktop.
But in any case, it is not included in PINN.

ProjectSpaces are for common linux OS layouts with 2 partitions. Android normally has 3 partitions.
You would have to do some manual repartitioning to get it to fit. Better to backup and start again unless you know what you're doing.
I could re partition it. For emteria what are the sizes i should make for each partition? What filesystem ?

Thanks

Have a look at partitions.json for Emteria. It might be best to download it to a USB stick first.

It might be best for me to download PINN on an sd card and get emteria.

I really thing the "Sticky Default OS" should be somehow altered.

I know how it works now, but i do not like the idea of bypassing the 10 sec bootmenutimeout option. I think it is better to have the possibility (if we want) to use both options together (like berryboot does). Sticky default OS + the 10 second boot time menu option. In that way PINN will always boot to the OS that we prefer AND give us the 10 sec time to alter to a different OS when we want. And - the most crucial - ...in next reboot sticky default OS will be booted again !

P.S1 E.g 95% of my time i want to boot into LibreELEC. But, if i change that and boot into let's say Raspbian, PINN will remember this last OS choice and boot into Raspbian by default each time from now on, unless a different option is selected. So i need to boot again into LE to correct this..This is just wrong :)

PS2 I know i can use the shift button to temporarily boot into another OS but..it is a little cumbersome for some ppl like me (i do not use a keyboard, only my remote)

So @procount can you add that option for the ppl who want both sticky default and bootmenutimeout?

@Haris1977 - /testing/pinn-2854a.zip, but you must explicitly set a `bootmenutimeout=XX` in recovery.cmdline, otherwise it will work as now.

Well. It doesnt work.

I ve downloaded LE+Raspbian (as test files), added the bootmenutimeout=5 in cmdline and ticked LE as "sticky default".

When i started raspbian - rebooted it - let it see what happens after 5 second and..raspbian again :arrow: (it seems as sticky default is overrided by the boot time menu option)

Funny, it worked fine for me. Can you open a github issue so we can discuss it over there?

@procount thanks for your github help. I will play with my cec settings a little bit.

What about the os renaming option? Are you working on it?

Btw in your new 2854a.zip version recalboxOS-rpi3 has no thumbnail image in the initial install screen ..

I'm working on a lot of things. :)
There is no image icon of recalbox in any version. Probably just a temporary network problem.

Yes,

I had a problem with installing Emteria from the internet, so I will have to repackage it for PINN.

I posted 3 wallpapers that I like on PINN's sourceforge website:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/pinn/files/wallpapers/
Rename one to `wallpaper.png` and place it in PINN's Recovery partition (usually /dev/mmcblk0p1) for it to be used.

If a new update is installed, do we loose any PINN options that have been added to the recovery.cmdline?

Not if you accept the self-update, or go to the maintenance page to reinstall PINN to check for a new update.

So there is no need to remove the no_update option in the recovery.cmdline? I just go to maintenance page select PINN and hit re-install? And that will do the job?
