gimxos (x86, RPi, OrangePi Zero) Flashable Images

Post by mkubiak » Tue Nov 07, 2017 9:59 am

Hi,

Update: Orange pi zero image is up on sourceforge

I've recently made a fresh image from scratch for my buddies and I wanted to share it with our community.
The goal was to setup a minimal Graphical interface, without additional bloatware to ease CPU load and reduce image size.
Base image was a CLI Raspbian (without GUI): https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/
Base image used for x86 release is an offical netinstall Debian: https://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/

Changelog moved to sourceforge's readme for each version.

Please submit requests and bugs via sourceforge ticket system.

Instalation tutorial: https://sourceforge.net/p/gimx-images/w ... -OSX-BSD)/
Downloads: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimx-images/

Screenshots:

How to connect using VNC:
VNC provides remote control over host, You can connect to Pi Xserver (Graphical user interface) using this service. Apart form beeing a convenient solution to control GIMX from Your mobile device (Android/iOS) or Laptop (Windows/Linux/macOS) it provides an only way to interact with the headless clients without HDMI out (Orange PI Zero (it's just 6$!) or C.H.I.P (9$) one day these jems will be able to run gimx without DIY adapter since they support USB OTG and they can work in device mode, Matlo works on this feature according to chanelogs and 8.0 milestones in github)
  • Connect your Pi/PC to the network using ethernet cable connection,
  • In VNC viewer set hostname to: GIMX,
  • Login using login: pi and passowrd: raspberry
Setting mouse polling rate (refresh rate)
x86:

Raspberry PI:
By default this image uses 1000hz, You can change this value with mouse-config added in 1.0 version, run 'sudo mouse-config' in terminal to enter setup.

Have fun.

Hello,

I've been using the x86 image up to now, however, I would like to update Gimx to the latest version and I am not able to do it.

Can you, or anybody with Linux knowledge help me with this?

Thanks.

Hello, the fastest way to update gimx is following these steps:
- Open gimx-launcher. Click Help / Update, click yes whatever it said.
- Open terminal, then run:

Code: Select all

cd /tmp/ 
sudo dpkg -i gimx-update.deb

Test on gimxos build for Orange pi Zero (thanks to mkubiak :) )

Hi mkubiak,

I'm trying your gimxos on Orange Pi Zero but I face with strange problem: if I connect DS4 and gimx adapter to OrangePi Zero through a usb hub, DS4 will disconnect after seconds. If I unplug microusb side from Gimx adapter, this DS4 stays connect perfectly.
Do you have any idea about this?

P/s: I've tried with another image from titanium (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1774) and gimx works flawlessly. So I think this related to kernel or something??

Hi,

You are actually first person who reported this problem.

Are You using the opiz with usb and av extension or just the regular one with a single USB port?

I'm planning to rebuild entire image since the opi version has problems with python I was unable to fix.

Hi,

I used a ORP0 v1.4 (H2+ chipset) and a usb hub (with power supply). Power supply is 5VDC - 2A

DS4 disconnects from system entirely or just looses connection with gimx?

Can You post Your gimx log?

What does lsusb or ls /dev/input/by-id | grep 'sony' show?
