I’ve made a small installer for a simple desktop, that runs fine on a pi2, pi3, vero2 and vero4k with the latest image installed. This in NOT an official desktop installation. The installer takes about 15 mins to install everything, with a few none vital warnings. It installs Xserver, LXDE core, Chromium, OSMC desktop background image and two Icon on the desktop. One for Chromium and on for a file manager. Finally a starting/launcher addon for kodi.
To start the installer, ssh into your OSMC-device and run these commands in osmc-users homedirectory:
After it has installed:
Click in to Settings->Add-on browser->My Add-ons->Program Add-ons->X11-launcher->Enable
Under Programs, you will now have another icon beside My OSMC
For Vero4k users, you need to install this driver to get X working better:
sudo apt-get install git build-essential xorg-dev xutils-dev x11proto-dri2-dev
sudo apt-get install libltdl-dev libtool automake libdrm-dev
sudo make install
Hope you enjoy it.
