GIMX on Raspberry PI B3+ & DietPi 4.14.98-v7

Thank you for you work!
Is great.

Can some body explain - how install gimx on Raspberry PI B3+ ?

At start - i try instruction from WiKi - http://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=RPi
But pre-made image wont start on my RPi (blink leds and no more)
i try
  • other sd cards,
  • reload image,
  • write image by different software (Win32 Disk Imager and balenaEtcher)
no results :(

After that i download DietPi 4.14.98-v7 image from dietpi.com
This system startup normaly.
Next steps by wiki
Login to dietpi user account (not root)

Code: Select all

wget https://gimx.fr/download/gimx-raspbian -O gimx.deb
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg -i gimx.deb
And some other steps
  • Autostart GIMX at boot without GUI
  • Notify when GIMX is running using a led
Gimx installed
BUT !!
not created ~/.gimx/
directory in user home directory!

and cant find ./gimx_list_configs.sh file

Can some body help?

After several attempts
I run dietpi-software and install LXDE (desktop)
In LXDE run Gimx-Launcher
get warning message "No config found! Download configs?"
Download it
And start GIMX in GUI mode. - All works!

But i need run GIMX in autostart mode, in console, without display!
