I did something similar to this image, but I didn't installed triple boot. Every module can be launched without rebooting (Raspbian + Kodi + Retropie + Moonlight/Steam). I also added Moonlight to play PC games (Steam) from the raspberry. You can check my work here:
The tutorial is written in spanish, but google-translator will help to understand all. You can see screens of how Kodi works, RetroPie and Moonlight (Witcher 3, Fallout 4, etc...). Also have Plex installed to get content from local streaming
Hope you like it
The instruction looks great - I checked that out under Google translate.
You managed in the instruction there that all the settings are in Spanish:
"Custom settings for Spanish: Layout, Audio, Video and Subtitles"
I am a newbie to Raspberry Pi (not a newbie to Linux) and I do not understand Spanish. Do you think I can manage to change all these language settings to English with relative ease? Thanks!
It's easy. Only the "kodi" part is pre-configured in Spanish. Just burn the image on your SD card and boot it.
Kodi will appear, go to "SISTEMA" -> "INTERNACIONAL" -> "IDIOMA". Then you can select ENGLISH instead SPANISH. After that, reboot Kodi to apply English texts. Then start entering on every sub-menu (of the System main menu) and change every "spanish" into "english". You will spend like 3 minutes to complete all
I'm going to update my image, maybe I can make a fork for english users...
Thanks for your reply! The image boots well - and of course is all in Spanish.
I tried as what you've written, but led to a "failed to install English (US)" message:
Sistema -> Ajustes -> Apariencia -> Internacional -> (and then it has these settings)
Region [Espana (24 horas)]
Conjunto de caracteres [Por defecto]
Distribuciones de teclado [Spanish QWERTY]
Pais del huso horario [Spain]
Huso horario [Europe/Madrid]
I tried changing Idioma from Spanish to English (US) and then press the [ENTER] key, here is what I got:
1. A quickly up and then gone message box probably telling me that the system is trying to install English (US) (?)
2. Another message box: English (US) - Ha fallado la installacion, asking me to press [OK]
Doing a reboot afterwards did not change the system language.
Perhaps I need to do some "apt-get install" to get some packages in the console while having my internet already configured?
I finally made a WiFi dongle works with Pi 2 (sadly, wasting 3+ hours and I still can't get the dhcp works with it - stuck in 169.254.x.x IP address, and had to use a static IP). And everything started to make more sense now after switching the layout and language to English with automatically downloaded packages.
A few suggestions:
- perhaps try to always use the 'pi' account instead of the 'root' account for your image?
- perhaps add a section to your guide to startx and add applications such as libreoffice or gimp?
- perhaps also add vnc access service?
It is anyways a very nice image and I am still reading how to use the emulationstation. Thanks.
