Well, I must say, I tried gnome3 with a Raspberry Pi 3B+, and it worked fine. To be honest though, I think a lot of work is needed in order for the Pi 4 to run any good desktop enviroments at the moment.gustavoFreire wrote: ↑Mon Aug 19, 2019 8:22 pmfor me on raspberry pi 4 using gnome 3 is very laggy to use alongside with chromium, all css animations are a lot slower than when was on lxde, , besides that, my mouse seems slower than normal, videos on youtube even on 720p are slower than normal (dropping a lot of frames) and all the gnome3 animations are very slow (I also disabled the animation but I did not saw much of a difference) using the default openGl driver btw
Nice point, and I completely understand your point. However a few facts remain:bjtheone wrote: ↑Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:15 amIts a teeny tiny little SBC that costs under $60 USD, with a processor that is significantly outgunned by most current middle to top tier smartphones.. It is never going to run the super heavy GUI environments that are built with higher end X86 laptops/desktops as targets. Its target audience and the target audience of maximum feature & eye candy desktops are not the same. It runs the really light desktops very well and the middling one completely acceptably. I have a bunch of older laptops that will not run the heavyweight desktops acceptably.
I am very happy with a 4B 4GB running Mate. It has noticeably better/smoother/faster performance than the laptop I was using as a primary computer before I got the 4B with a very similar setup (current Ubuntu with Mate). I think your expectations are not particularly well aligned with reality.
did not try yet, myself(no pi4).
I understand and respect the forum's decisions about PMs but I do wish they were available. Some points of the debat are relevant to the guide, so....Giga_Pi wrote: ↑Sun Sep 15, 2019 8:05 am1) KDE Plasma ran nicely on the Pi 3B+
2)The Pi 4 can now have 4GB. That's enough to run a heavy desktop. I've ran gnome3 and cinnamon on the Pi3B+ with the latest Raspbian buster, so the Pi4 definitely should.
3)We have very many new graphic upgrades with the new Pi. There is no reason for heavy desktops to not run. I've had KDE Plasma and Cinnamon run on my new Pi4, and it runs acceptably.
Since the 3B+, heavy desktop enviroments have been a thing for the raspberry pi, and can run on the Pi2 as well.
ok, try build sway this weekend on Rpi-2.cjan wrote: ↑Fri Sep 27, 2019 12:04 amdid not try yet, myself(no pi4).

You can install another desktop manager. gdm3 works. If you type:Marco.C wrote: ↑Fri Jan 17, 2020 8:46 pmTranslated by Google
People remembered that on an old PC that I had with linux installed, in the session manager where I had to enter the password, a gear icon appeared, when clicking on this icon I had the option to choose which gui to use, in Raspbian this icon does not pops up.
Can Raspbian manager settings be edited?
If "no" can I use another one, uninstalling the current one and installing another one?
Anyone help and welcome, I have another SD Card to try and learn ok? A help from you guys that doesn't work will not cause any inconvenience, it will help me learn and get to know Linux better.
Thanks for the help.
Pessoal lembrei que num PC antigo que eu tinha com o linux instalado, no gerenciador de sessões onde tinha que digitar a senha, aparecia um icone de engrenagem, ao clicar nesse icone eu tinha a opção de escolher qual gui usar, no Raspbian esse icone não aparece.
Sera que as configurações do gerenciador do Raspbian podem ser editadas ?
Se " não " sera que posso usar outro, desinstalando o atual e instalando outro ?
Pesssoal qualquer ajuda e bem vinda, tenho outro SD Card para esperimentar e aprender ok? Uma ajuda de vcs que não der certo não vai gerar nenhum transtorno, vai sim me ajudar a aprender e conhecer melhor o linux.
Valeu pela ajuda.
Yes you can do that.Marco.C wrote: ↑Thu Jan 16, 2020 2:21 amTranslated by Google
First of all I would like to congratulate GhostRaider on his excellent guide, the best and most complete I have ever encountered on the web.
Guys I read the 7 pages and found nothing about my doubt so there is the question, can you install more than one gui, Pixel, Xfce and Mate for example, in the same installation choosing which to use when entering the password?
Thank you very much for your attention.
Antes de tudo gostaria de parabenizar o GhostRaider pelo seu excelente guia, o melhor e mais completo que já encontrei na web.
Pessoal li as 7 paginas e não achei nada sobre minha duvida então la vai a pergunta, tem como instalar mais de uma gui, Pixel, Xfce e Mate por exemplo, na mesma instalação escolhendo qual usar ao digitar a senha?
Desde já muito obrigado pela atenção

I've been torturing myself through all the posts for the past 2 days; this is not easy if English is not the mother tongue ...
Therefore, I apologize if I am completely misplaced with my question ...
I have some PI's running here, mostly with RaspBian lite. It is no longer a problem for me to set up such a system and get things going like Samba, FTP and Co.
Now I would like to set up two PI's (3b +) according to the above scheme with the current Buster. The "lite" system is running, but can I just continue as stated in the initial article?
What do i have to have:
A minimal desktop environment, on it a browser (preferably not Chomium), RDP, SSH (already running), Samba (already running), FHEM (already running) with TabletUI (if that tells someone what). The whole thing should run directly into the GUI and open the browser in kiosk mode with a predefined start page (the local URL of the TabletUI).
In addition, the touchscreen of the original RaspBerry display should of course run (System 1) and a 24´´ Smart (touch) display connected via HDMI and USB (ViewSonic VSD24).
So OpenBox (?) and a browser (which one?)?
Did I understand correctly that OpenBox is a GUI in which nothing is specified? That would be the optimal solution for a browser in kiosk mode, wouldn't it? Or did I get it completely wrong with OpenBox?
Questions after questions ... Can anyone help? That would be really nice!
Greetings from Germany
