While I'm not a linux user, Mint has saved some files of mine in the past and didn't seem that bad to use. Now that I'll be getting a pi for myself, I don't want it just for gaming - I want to try and make some art on it, be it gimp or whatever art/image-edition-related program I can run on it.
That said, I'd like to have SOME ease of use with it, like having SOME plug and play support for usb devices or storage, a proper shutdown UI button [my pi won't have a case with buttons to turn it off] or at the very least compatibility with my old wacom.
With that said, and I believe there's no pre-made image with all that, I ask which way should I go. Raspbian and try to install the extensions myself, or directly to Mate? [since it's the closet thing to <int available for the Pi]
I use Mint on my Intel PC and yes, it is excellentYanazake wrote: ↑Thu Jan 03, 2019 1:06 amWhile I'm not a linux user, Mint has saved some files of mine in the past and didn't seem that bad to use.

I know I shouldn't expect much of it, but I had already tried using a lot of low-end hardware for my creations, so I probably won't be that disappointed with what I get.
That said, I'm trying to find out about the official power supply. All I know is what it looks like from this page: https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/ra ... er-supply/
Thought I'd find some more info about it in the official[?] page... Anyway, anything like it's model number would be good for comparison of the one I found. It's not purchased yet, I'm waiting for pay day :p The power supply is registered as "123-5272" and looks basically the same as the official power supply, just in black color when searching for the number online.
[also, yeah, I found the 3b+ for a nice price on a good seller, also on the list for payday ]
the black borders can be taken out.Yanazake wrote: Still trying to figure out how to get rid of the black borders,
I haven't checked, but try:
Code: Select all
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install gimp
