PIXEL on old PC x86 raspberry pi

Wed Jan 17, 2018 7:25 pm

I have been looking at running PIXEL on an old PC laptop, but have a question about the type of software that can be ran on the PIXEL PC. Can additional software be installed such as the raspberry pi version of App Game Kit?

Pixel was obsoleted, maybe Debian Stretch with Raspberry Pi Desktop would be a better starting point:

You can install any software compatable with x86 Debian Stretch.

For an informed reply, visit https://www.appgamekit.com/agk-pi and use the contact details or forum there.

But it seems unlikely. From that webpage:
Full Raspberry Pi version support
Develop your app on any version of Raspberry Pi,
An x86-based PC laptop running the Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop Operating System is not in any way a version of Raspberry Pi, since all models of the latter are based on chips that use the arm CPU architecture.
