Introducing PocketDESK

What is PocketDESK?.

PocketDESK is a way to run the normal Desktop GUI on your PocketCHIP without any hassle.

Does the keyboard work? Yes sir

Does the touchscreen work? Yes sir

Can i run this next to the normal PocketHome? YES SIR

The install is super simple.

Just run

sudo apt update && sudo apt install git

git clone https://github.com/AllGray/PocketDesk.git

sudo ./PocketDesk/PocketDESK.sh

That is it. Do a reboot and you are good to go.


How to use!

The point of PocketDESK is that you can switch between the normal Desktop GUI and PocketHome

To do this simply log out of whatever you booted into

PocketHome: (See.. I put a button there for you'all)

PocketHome_logout

Desktop:

Desktop_logout

In the login manager you click and choose the desired GUI version:

Change_wm


If you run into any problems, feel free ask.
