  1. Now i have display compositing enabled with compton, using xfce default compositing makes text and some other stuff look foggy, i don't know if i did use the right word, but hope you understand me. But all the other stuff is more or less the same, glmark2 shows very low score, desktop feels accelerated and it runs very well. I could live with that, but when i play video, it doesn't run well, the same thing is probably with games. Good thing with chromium that it now works without using terminal command, but you can see that it needs more time to open the ui. Is there any tweak or some app, that could make desktop to run without any glitches, but it doesn't affect playing videos or other stuff that is needed for the system? Can someone explain, is this because the gpu is too slow, or is it just because lima is not mature enough, and things will probably get better, or is it maybe this way with xfce, you win some but you lose some?
  2. I didn't check video info, but i believe it is accelerated, i didn't see anything weird when playing it, but all this was just a short test. What crashes do you have on Ubuntu? Tbh i feel like Debian buster works better than Ubuntu, but i can't seem to enable lima driver on it.
  3. Kodi gui was accelerated in all these images i've tried recently, but i didn't check the videos, this was the first time i wanted to try it, i was happy with mpv so far. I would like to discover what other configuration i need to change with lima, because i feel i am missing something. I was checking manjaro xfce last week, and it worked better than these armbian images, mpv and kodi both worked, didn't have app window drawing over the screen when moving, but i don't have wifi driver so i gave up for now.
  4. I now have a strange issue, i am not sure if it's connected to lima or not, but i believe it probably is lima. Text is missing from Kodi 18.6 ui menu, i can only see icons, nothing else, i've tried to reinstall it, but nothing has changed. I am running Ubuntu focal kernel 5.7 rc6.
  5. Does anyone else have issues when booting from usb flash drive, everything is ok when booting from sd, but when trying with usb, it boots as server and with some dependencies failed, and when it boots i get no desktop? Device is kvim1, image is ubuntu focal desktop, kernel 5.7 rc4. Is there anything special that needs to be done when using usb, maybe i missed something?

  7. I have changed display manager from ldm to lxdm, i think gdm was installed too, now i have options on login screen. I did install gnome core, wayland and weston, and i have gnome on xorg(x2 probably because mutter is preinstalled when installing gnome core?) and gnome classic to choose. Gnome on xorg is slow, gnome classic is decent. I have installed sway, but i don't know how to run it, i didn't get any option about it. About wayfire, judging by the pictures, it really looks beautiful, it looks highly customizable and attractive, but i have some install.sh script error, judging by github, i am not the only one with it. There is some patch that should work, but i don't know how to apply it. I would build it myself if i knew how, sometimes i really need detailed instructions from start to end, without skipping any step, and i can't find them every time, i am using windows my whole life, sometimes Linux is just hard. I am using Ubuntu instead of Debian.
  8. Now i'm interested to see your configuration, part where you get these big glmark2 numbers, what packages are needed, can you share installation steps? If display compositing is enabled with lima, i get pretty low glmark2 score, but the overall system feels a little smoother, not faster but with less glitches. I broke my system a lot of times in the past, when i tried to make bigger changes in armbian, so step by step instruction would be appreciated.
  9. One more thing, is it possible for app window not to draw over desktop when moving it, can i do something about it without disabling lima driver? Nevermind, i figured it out, display compositing was disabled, now it's quite smooth, this is now a really nice lightweight desktop.
  10. Yeah, on Bionic all should run well, i also switched back to Bionic, Focal still has some bugs that annoy me. Chromium on Lima doesn't work, but lima dev helped me with solution, add this line on chromium command line --use-gl=egl., it's not a real solution, but at least you can run chromium.
  11. I did try Debian buster 5.7 image last night, it looks like there is a big difference with these two distros, i must say it works better than Ubuntu, i can really feel that it is accelerated. When you move app windows, there is no app drawing over the desktop, desktop really feels smooth, don't know if i used the right words, i am not so good with english technical terms. Maybe i am missing something, or maybe there is something else that needs to be configured, but in those few minutes of testing, it's a big difference. @UniformBuffer, yeah, i was pretty sure that it will look the same, unfortunately that isn't the case. But thanks anyway for helping!
  12. I needed to send it complete the first time, sorry. I've run glxinfo, same as glmark2, mali450 mesa.
  13. I wasn't sure if the picture was sent, i don't see it, maybe i removed it accidentaly, so here it is, this is all done with tapatalk.
  14. Hi, my file looks different, look at the picture. I have added oibaf ppa, installed mesa, set the 3d acceleration from none to glamor, that is all i have done, and that's the only conf file in the folder. Glmark2 says that i have 2.1 mesa 20.1.0-devel, gl renderer mali 450, gl vendor lima, so it looks like it is already using lima? That is one of the reasons i asked, first time i have set acceleration to glamor, glmark2 reported it was no longer using llvm pipe? I will check with glxinfo just in case, but i don't see a reason why it should report anything else.
  15. @ning thank you, but you must be more precise, i don't know how to configure x for lima and remove all x config files preinstalled, i've been looking from the freedesktp site, but i can't find precise instructions, and i don't want to experiment because a lot of stuff is working fine on my system. About mesa, glmark2 says 2.1 mesa 20.1.0-devel, 29.04.2020 is the date on it, so probably this is up to date? Sorry, but i am a noob when it comes to Linux, so if you can help me out?
