how to start lightdm - h2

Bruno Crivelari Sanches


Hi folks,


I installed armbian with success on my orangepi zero.  I was able to configure wifi and even fix some display issues on tv.


But I am struggling to get a graphical manager running, I tried to start lightdm using:


sudo start lightdm


but I get "start command not found".


any hints ?


Thank you

Hi Bruno


Armbian seem to offer only "server" distros for the pi zero which means without GUI.

I do not have zero, but opi pc plus for which armbian "desktop" exists.

you might try:

# apt-get install lightdm

followed by:

# service lightdm start


But it would be easier if you get an opi for which a desktop armbian exists.
best, gnasch
