  1. Thank you Igor and belfastraven! I will definitely look into the kiosk mode of XFCE, since that looks like what I am trying to do.
  2. Thank you. After more digging, I realized that the build has xfce desktop. This is a legacy focal build for ROCK64. Is there a way to specify which desktop to use during Armbian build?
  3. I got some of my build time customizations working by adding some commands to customize-image.sh. The 2 I haven't figured out yet are the ones below. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. I am building a legacy focal desktop image for Rock 64. 1. I need the image to come up with a black screen background and no background image displayed. The latest thing I tried calling the following in customize-image.sh, but it still didn't work: DISPLAY=":0" gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.ColorChooser custom-colors "[(0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1.0)]" DISPLAY=":0" gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.ColorChooser selected-color "(true, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0)" 2. I don't want the top menu bar to be visible. I just want my app's window to be displayed and nothing else. How do I accomplish that at build time?
  4. Igor, I think you misunderstood what I was asking. I wasn't asking you to support hardware that we are making. I was asking which BT and Wifi chips that hardware that you are already supporting is using. We would like to use BT and Wifi chips that are already supported by Armbian, so that we don't need to add new drivers.
  5. Right now we are evaluating on ROCK64 board running Armbian. So, the answer is yes, on the new board we also want to be running Armbian.
  6. We are starting a HW design for a board that will probably be using RK3328. We want this board to be running Armbian. We need to select BT and Wifi chips. Would like to use chips that are already supported by Armbian. Is there a list of Bluetooth and Wifi chips that Armbian supports? Any recommendations?
  7. I am building a legacy desktop image for Rock64 and there are a few things I am trying to customize at build time. I modified userpatches/customize-image.sh, but I am not getting expected results. Here are some things I am trying to modify: 1. I want to have the desktop come up in solid black color, no image. I made the following changes to userpatches/customize-image.sh: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background picture-options 'none' gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background primary-color '#000000' But I am still seeing the Armbian image on my desktop. What else do I have to modify? 2. I need to get rid of the prompt that asks for the root user password. I added the following lines to userpatches/customize-image.sh: rm -f /root/.not_logged_in_yet echo -e "password\npassword" | (passwd root) This got rid of the root password prompt, but now the image doesn't boot into the desktop GUI. It stops at the Linux CLI prompt. What else do I need to modify in customize-image.sh to make it boot into GUI? 3. I need to create another user and I'd like to have my box automatically boot as this user. I added the following lines to userpatches/customize-image.sh (in addition to stuff I added in #2 above): echo -e "$PW\n$PW\n\n" | (adduser new_user) What else do I have to modify to make the box boot as this user? 4. I would like to get rid of Locale prompt and always choose en_US.UTF-8. How would I do that? 5. I am trying to add a systemd startup script at build time. I added the following lines to userpatches/customize-image.sh: cp /tmp/overlay/*.service /lib/systemd/system systemctl daemon-reload systemctl enable myservice.service I have myservice.service in userpatches/overlay directory. But, the service doesn't start on my target. Thank you in advance for any help I can get! Incidentally, it seems like I can only post to this forum once in a 24 hour period. How can I get past this restriction? My answers may be delayed due to this.
  8. Trying to create my first Armbian build for rock64 using native environment on Ubuntu 18.04 host. Followed instructions here https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/ to clone and build. I am running as a root. Here are the steps I performed: git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/armbian/build cd build/ ./compile.sh I selected full OS, didn't change kernel config, selected rock64, current, focal, image with desktop. I am getting these errors: [ o.k. ] Build host OS release [ bionic ] [ o.k. ] Syncing clock [ host ] [ o.k. ] Checking for external GCC compilers [ error ] ERROR in function download_and_verify [ general.sh:1296 ] [ error ] verification failed [ o.k. ] Process terminated I tried selecting different types of builds in configuration menus, but the build always fails. I tried deleting build directory and starting over several times, but no luck. I also tried adding USE_TORRENT="no" to the command line, as was suggested in several posts I found on the topic, but that didn't work either. What am I doing wrong? How can I build my image?
  9. Thank you, Igor. I tried a 4.4.213 image and that worked.
  10. First time user here. I got a Rock64 board and flashed Armbian_20.08.1_Rock64_focal_current_5.8.6_desktop.img using Etcher to an SD card. When I try to boot, nothing happens. If I examine the SD card on my Linux PC, there is only one partition on it and it appears to be a kernel image. I assumed that the .img file would have the U-Boot partition as well. Is there a different type of image file I should be using that would contain everything that I need to boot? If not, how do I create such an image?
