  1. I am very impressed by how much feature we are getting... WOWIE I don't know if anyone has said this to you but you are a legend!
  2. so......... about my previous setup. AN UPDATE BROKE IT That forced me to scramble with my Tinkerboard system this whole day, a lot of system re-flash happened. And I finally figured out what broked it. Good news is that I am able to get xrdp+xfce working now, and no lightdm-gtk-greeter cpu problem. The new instruction are: 1. Download Armbian_20.05.1_Tinkerboard_focal_current_5.4.43_desktop.img.xz (Now I think about it you might be also make xrdp work in the newer image with slightly different instruction, but that (5.4.43) is the version o
  3. Edit: My system broke over the after an update that comes after I have written the instruction. You should skip over to my other comment! Or apply the fix in my other comment (step 7-8 and maybe 9, I don't really know if that fix is applicable though) I found a solution that suits me (might not be ideal for others) Basically I started from server image and installed what I want/need and it works well in the end. 1. Flash Focal Server image to your Tinkerboard (S) 2. Boot your Tinkerboard (S) and connect it to internet/LAN 3. SSH into your b
  4. I recently reinstall my Tinkerboard with Focal Desktop to start over. I installed xrdp in armbian-config, and RDPed in, there was no wallpaper, no desktop icon, no mouse icon and windows I opened looks weird (but xfce taskbar shows up) I came to the conclusion that it has something to do with auto login, so a quick google leads me to this instruction, I commented the line in "/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/22-armbian-autologin.conf" out, reboot, and the RDP environment works great. Except now there is lightdm-gtk-greeter process in the background that is taking 100% CPU usage in fu
  5. I'm late to the thread.... If you really want to make your current adapter work, first look up what chip the Adapter is using... There are V1, V2 and V3 of Tl-WN725N, TP-Link released Linux driver code for V3, and there is manual on how to install drivers on Linux, read it. (And you want to install kernel header through `sudo armbian-config` first) I am not sure if the driver code will be usable on the Armbian kernel, you really have to try it to find out. As for v1, I can't find a driver for it. As for v2, there is lwfinger/rtl8188eu
  6. I'm trying to compile Qt5 on my system, following this guide, got the "E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list" message. After some Google, I know you have to enable "Source code" in software-properties-gtk to use "apt build-dep", but I can't check the source code options in there. ps. armbianmonitor -u didn't gave me a URL, it detected some sort of networking problem.
  7. Nevermind, somehow I fixed it myself, I'll share what I tried/done here. After I posted, I also tried "sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic", but it doesn't work. Then I started to click on 2nd and 3rd google search result of "armbian install linux headers", this is what helped me. It mentions you can install kernel-header in armbian-config. I opened armbian-config and found that kernel-header option, removed and reinstalled kernal-header. (It shows "Remove kernel headers" at first, I was skeptical on removing kernel headers but I tried it anyway) Aft
  8. I bought a Tinkerboard S and Tinker Aluminum case yesterday, but because of the case, it's Wifi function is almost non-exist, so I bought a TP-LINK TL-WN722N v2 two hours ago. I was hoping to get a V1, which has a lot of information on Wikidevi, and looks like it's going to work out-of-the-box, but I got a v2, and now I'm trying to get it to work. Wikidevi provided a link to driver repository, I downloaded main branch and type "make all" in terminal, it says /lib/modules/4.4.166-rockchip/build does not exist. I tried to search how to install kernel header and tried this command
