  1. I wrote in the wrong order but I set correctly:

    export LANGUAGE=es_ES.UTF-8 
    export LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 export 
    locale-gen es_ES.UTF-8 
    dpkg-reconfigure locales

    I try using root after a su command, but also I try using same commands with sudo (I hear sometimes work differently but maybe is an urban legend)


    Where can I find the Xenial image for Orange Pi One?

    In I can seen an Armbian_5.07_Orangepih3_Debian_jessie_4.6.0-rc1 but not a Xenial image.


    Sorry for been quite dummy in English and GNU/Linux and thanks in advance.

  2. Armbian is based on 4 different 'basic distros' in the meantime. Trusty/Xenial based on Ubuntu and Wheezy/Jessie based on Debian. According to our documentation the necessary steps between both differ regarding localisation:


    So did you check that you used the method that applies to your OS variant?


    Sorry for been so imprecise, I'm using armbian on a OrangePiOne, with the only distro available today, Legacy in the the Jessie Desktop flavor:


    And I try to change locales in the proper way.

  3. Is not important, and is a topic related to desktop environment and I know that armbian is more a server OS than a dektop replacement ... but I'm stuck trying to have all the environment in my mother language, Spanish.


    I change locale in root user and in the additionally created desktop user, I use 

    dpkg-reconfigure locales

     locales and also 

    export LANGUAGE=es_ES.UTF-8

    but after reboot is again in English.

    And also when I update and upgrade the system I can see Translation-en logs but never a Translation-es.


    Is there any chance to do a better localization of the Desktop Environment?



  4. I lost the sound on Orange Pi One. Friday I install armbian an everything works but after last apt-get updates & upgrades, I lost all the sound.

    Maybe is something break with the packets updated the last two days?


    Auto response: using SMPlayer I can chose audio output with "Alsa sdhmi" or something like this, and the sound works using SMPlayer but not in "Iceweasel" or "mpv"

  5. [Thanks Igor et al. for all the hard work]


    For those who prefer LXDE, here are the steps to transform the Jessie server to LXDE desktop:

    ## Update distro
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
    ## Install LXDE Desktop
    sudo apt-get install -y xorg lxde lightdm policykit-1
    sudo sed -i.bak -e 's/^NotShowIn=GNOME;KDE;$/NotShowIn=LXDE;GNOME;KDE;/' /etc/xdg/autostart/lxpolkit.desktop
    ## Add Armbian wallpaper
    umask 022
    sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/wallpapers
    (cd /usr/local/wallpapers; sudo wget
    sudo sed -i.bak -e 's/^wallpaper=.*$/wallpaper=\/usr\/local\/wallpapers\/armbian01.jpg/' /etc/xdg/pcmanfm/LXDE/pcmanfm.conf
    sudo sed -i.bak -e 's/^background=.*$/background=\/usr\/local\/wallpapers\/armbian01.jpg/' /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf

    In addition, I usually add

    ## Lock down SSH (no root login && ssh key-only login)
    sudo sed -i.bak -e 's/PermitRootLogin yes/PermitRootLogin no/' -e 's/#PasswordAuthentication yes/PasswordAuthentication no/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    sudo systemctl restart sshd
    ## Install Git
    sudo apt-get install -y git
    ## Install Armbian monitor
    sudo armbianmonitor -r

    BTW, I am fully expecting people to point out that directly sed'ing pkg files is wrong and I really should be doing it another way. :-)


    Is possible to switch to a completely localized version (Spanish I mean in my case) of the LXDE Desktop?


  6. I just tested and confirm working xrdp accessed from Linux hosts :) , Android tablet  :D  and smartphone  :D .



    Installation on OPIONE / armbian 5.05



    $> sudo apt-get install xrdp tightvncserver



    Test Remote Desktop on Debian Jessie Host (OK)



    $> rdesktop <orangepione-ip>



    Test Remote Desktop via x2goclient on Debian Jessie Host (OK)



    Configure x2goclient for direct RDP-connection to OrangePiOne



    Test Remote Desktop on Tablet Samsung GT-N5110 / Android 4.4.2 (OK)



    Install working app ( M$ has problems as usual ) : aRDP Free



    Test Remote Desktop on al-cheapo Smartphone Wiko Lenny2 / Android 5.1 (OK)



    Install working app : aRDP Free





    Please change title to  "No problem with xrdp in opi one"

    Have fun

    Thanks @rodolfo for the answer, I never need to add tightvncserver to my xrdp installations. I have the same error than aseok but now I give anothre try to XRDP.

    Like most "benchmarking tests" the laughable Phoronix marketing slideshow forgets the "bench", the "marking" and the "tests". The title of that fraudulent opinion piece should simply be " Creating pretty pictures from randomly running irrelevant stuff on smallish boards". There is a valid point though in using stock software provided by the seller of the boards, as it is beyond the average buyer's skills to

    reinvent the wheel from scratch.


    Honest "benchmark tests" could be much simpler 



    Maybe my UG802 (RK3066 dual core) with Picuntu running several days a week as torrent downloader since 2012 and update from Ubuntu 12.10 to 14.04 and I hope in next months go to 16.04 is a good example of benchmark. And also chinese people lost an opportunity to have a PiZero killer 4 years ago.





  8. But sometimes this is the way some people use his boards with 64GB microSD card acting like server ...

    ... and people like numbers, measures, graphs, ... 

    When somebody ask me about the boards I have, I prefer to talk about feelings and today I prefer my old ODROID-U3 with eMMC card than others.

    And sorry, I don't want to bother you, only can show some of this kind of nonsense numbers realized in a honest way and thinking how easy it would be perverting the results.

    Thanks a million for your work in armbian !!!

  9. I tried to do sysbench test in the more objective way as possible:



    using the same micro SD card (not only the same model, I do with the same unit), cable, power source and peripherals connected and in this case, because is easy, with all my RPi units running the same OS installation.


    I ordered a Orange Pi One and I will try to do this test again trying to be honest.

  10. On a Banana PRO with Debian Jessie I installed the lightweight desktop and all is more or less usable except the web browsing. I been using Iceweasel and Epiphany Browser (I can find Midori on the included repositories) but are completely unusable.


    I suppose that images are using the philosophy of "Disabled all memory reservations for GPU"


    Is a problem about the dedicated RAM to the graphics engine?

    How I can change this memory split?


    Thanks in advance.

  11. Hello Igor

    with a Banana Pro using this:

    uname -a
    Linux bananapi 4.0.4-bananapi #6 SMP Thu May 21 21:58:45 CEST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

    I can't have the internal Wi-Fi up, I try adding to /etc/modules ap6210, ap6181 and bcmdhd.

    I try to use only wlan and disabled the eth part of the /etc/network/interfaces

    The script.bin is linking to /boot/bin/bananapipro.bin

    But always receive a message when I test:

    modprobe ap6210
    FATAL: Module ap6210 not found

    Please, can you help me?
