Re: Install graphic user interface on Raspberry 3

Most likely all of them, though for such underpowered device I'd really recommend something along the lines of Xfce or LXDE.

In the same way as you would on debian.

Re: Install graphic user interface on Raspberry 3

Hi,

I have do this sequence of command

#apt-get update
#apt-get upgrade
#apt-get install xfce4

....
all seems downloaded  and installed ok but

#root@devuan:~# startx
mktemp: failed to create file via template '/tmp/serverauth.XXXXXXXXXX': Read-only file system
xauth:  error in locking authority file
xauth:  error in locking authority file /root/.Xauthority
xauth:  error in locking authority file /root/.Xauthority

I obtain a read-only file system
any ideas ?

THanks
Alberto

IIRC I had the same problem.  I suspect your xserver was not installed.  Try (as root):

apt-get install xserver-xorg

Let us know if this works.

Re: Install graphic user interface on Raspberry 3

Hi donpine,

Yes it works

I have restart from a fresh image of last Devuan image for Raspberry 3

#apt-get update
#apt-get upgrade
#apt-get install xserver-xorg
#apt-get install xfce4

#startx

But another question .... is missing a good browser ...

Thanks to all
Alberto

YOu can use fluxbox window's manager. It's lighter and its face remove hiccups.

With only 1gb ram in a Pi3, Firefox will run, but is slow, depending on websites you visit, it may be worth trying Dillo, but it is a bit quirky to use. smile
