User Interface

Postby diode84 » 29 Oct 2018, 15:09

Hello Everyone
Just been given a Pi 1, am totally new to Pi and loaded runeaudio rpi 0.3 beta. My question is does it have a GUI that comes up on the tv screen. If not do you do one that does.
Thanks

Hi diode84,

please read this.

You also can try this version
runeaudio-0-5-beta-for-all-raspberry-pi-models-t6532.html

Your Pi1 isn't the best version from a performance perspective.

Thanks Frank, I know the P1 is not ideal but all I have until I sound the Pi out.
Also I did read what you advised and to me it was a bit ambiguous, it could be my brain but has it any internal user interface or must it always be played on the web interface.
Thanks

Your best bet with a Pi1 is to use the web interface from your phone or PC for performance reasons also the local interface was designed to be used with a touch screen so mouse support is limited unless you change some settings in a config file to get the mouse pointer to show up other wise you are navigating blind

The version which Frank suggested (V0.5b) for the Pi1 does not have a local display function built in. We tested it, but none of the Pi1 models (including Pi Zero and Pi B+) were powerful enough to run the required software. As Cyborg_delta1 suggests, using a smartphone, tablet or computer as a remote control is the best option for this model.
The Pi2 models (Pi 2B, Pi 3B and Pi 3B+) all work fine with the local display via HDMI. Setting up a touchscreen is also possible.

Thanks everyone I will give up Runeaudio on my P1. I may get a later Pi at some time in the future.
I know a web interface works but am not keen on using two devices unless I am in another room.
I really want to make a poor mans SONY HAP-S1, with a screen, connected to the audio system and controlled by a remote controll. I

I had the issue with the invisible mouse cursor after adding a non-touch screen monitor, keyboard and mouse and turning on the local browser setting. The change that made it visible was removing "-use_cursor no" from the following line in /root/.xinitrc:

Code: Select all
matchbox-window-manager -use_titlebar no -use_cursor no &
