ATTENTION: This script is not actively developed!

The goal of this script is to provide an easy solution to install a graphical user interface (GUI) on Bananian (LightDM and xfce4), a special Linux Distro for Banana Pi board. Since Bananian has been abandoned and not many people were actually interested in this project, I decided not to develop the script further. While it should work on the last version of Bananian, I discourage anybody from using it. Bananian and BananianX don't get any updates anymore and could have critical bugs including security issues. Possibly this script still works on some Debian distros I don't know. Feel free to fork and update this repo. Please include credit if you want to release the software and contact me.

How to install?

1. Download BananianX: wget
2. Make it executable: chmod +x
3. Run it ./bananianX.
4. Wait...
BananianX is in gamma state and not actively developed. So it might NOT work as expected.
Thanks to: rvdns11 and Wolf2000 (German BananaPi Forum) for testing and help! And berkleeb for using my script differently:
You can’t perform that action at this time.
