RE: RPi-TC ARMv6j Release 5 available!
What do you mean with browser mode?

"Browser mode: press B (shift+b) during boot video intro to enter in browser kiosk mode."

This browser mode is interesting for a project => the users can use juste a browser (iceweasel). And when the users boot the raspi, i want put a URL by default in the browser.

You understand ? May be i'm not clear ?

Gibbio, is there a reason PCoIP is not working in this version and was in the previous? Will PCoIP be supported eventually?

With rpi-update not available on this distro, how would one go about updating the Pi to the newest firmware?

Would sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

do the trick?

RE: RPi-TC ARMv6j Release 5 available!
Thanks for this project that seems very good.
I tried it, it is fast and good and with beautiful graphic, I tried freerdp and spice but both are failed.
Spicy show "Segmentation Fault" without other detail, trying to connect to same domUs with debian sid from one x86 notebook it works.
xfreerdp fails always loading shared library libudev.so.0
I also tried to see the custom packages repository on armtc.net but connection failed, both from browser and apt-get from raspberry.

Thanks for any reply.

RE: RPi-TC ARMv6j Release 5 available!
Congratulations for your proyect.
Please in the next version is very interesting you put the last versión of: rdesktop 1.8.2

Other packets that could be good: htop, screen and whiptail.

whiptail is very important for this script you can choose the server you want to connect to RDP.
I create a file: terminal.sh with:

INIT=

SERVER=$(whiptail --inputbox "Connection RDP, please insert server name?" 8 78 $INIT --title "RDP Connection" 3>&1 1>&2 2>&3)

exitstatus=$?

if [ $exitstatus = 0 ]; then

echo "User selected Ok and entered " $SERVER

else

echo "User selected Cancel."

fi

echo "(Exit status was $exitstatus)"
rdesktop -T "Escriptori Remot" -u "" -f -x m -a 15 -z -k es -r disk:desktop=/home/rpitc/Desktop $SERVER
clear
echo "Disconnecting from server: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ."
sleep 1
echo ".... bye bye."

and create file: terminal.desktop in: /home/rpitc/Desktop/

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Connection RDP
Exec=xterm -e sh /home/rpitc/terminal.sh
Type=Application
Terminal=False
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/RDesktop.png
Categories=Application;

I think that may be some significant improvements to the next version.

You can see it in operation:




For last, only comment what when execute:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
and reboot the raspberry with rpitc, boot but no start X.
I think maybe there is a problem respositori.

There are also problems with apt-get dist-upgrade.
