As the title suggests I’m having a problem with chromium on the pixel desktop that is located in the ports section on retropie, and if that explanation is too confusing it’s just the pixel desktop that you install from the raspbian related tools in the retropie setup section in the retropie consoles and stuff menu.
Anyways the problem I’m having with it is the entire tab appears diagonal, aside from the outer box that defines the boundaries of the tab itself, the problem doesn’t appear with anything except chromium. Note that this is the pre-installed form of chromium that is already there when you first start up the pixel desktop, and not a form of chromium that I installed later, also note that this problem persists even when re-installing the entire retropie image.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.
(Heck it won’t let me remove the “pixel” tag
I had the same issue and resolved it by manually installing rpi os, then retropie on top of it. A 3rd person has reported the issue in this thread but the way to solve it is there until its solved on the developer end.
Yes, it might be possible. You'll need to modify the autostart script in /opt/retropie/configs/all/autostart.sh and start either Emulationstation or the desktop - depending on your current TV connection.
There's a way to detect which output is connected (see this topic), so you can use something like this:
if (/usr/bin/tvservice -s | /bin/egrep 'HDMI|DVI') ; then
# Start the desktop
# Start Emulationstation
Im done. Im not going to change anything on my raspberry anymore. I was in PIXEL and clicked "connect to server" there i got a window that said "connect to remote server" "Specify remote folder to connect". I guess i typed something wrong there cause now i dont have internet connection anymore. And i cannot find internet on the start panel. Also i get a white line about a cm wide on the left side of the screen in PIXEL
EDIT: After reset the PIXEL discovered networks, and i managed to get it back on. Also, i managed to remove the white line on the left side by right clicking on it and delete. I hope later versions of PIXEL will make it just as easy to acces a pc network as it is for PC to access it. I have searched the web and i am astonished that not more people are asking the same questions. There is alot of topics on how to remote access the pie though.
Again, thanks for not totally flaming a illiterate-pc noob full of questions :)
@njweb Win32DiskImager is perfect for backing up your Pi. Most people on here use it, and I've made about 10 copies of my SD cards over the years when building and testing new things out in various projects.
I'd highly recommend ditching whatever image came with your Pi though and starting with the base Retropie from the site. If you run into more problems and ask for help here it wont be supported, plus nobody will know what has been done to the image before it was sold to you to try and help you if we can.
If you are happy with tinkering and exploring things for yourself though, you wont be disappointed with starting from the image on this site and making it your own!
Good point, thanks. Just concerned with potential compatibility issues with EmulationStation and installed emulators, settings etc. if I upgrade Retropie (will look up steps again).
I came across your shader while messing around with settings last night, and I just want to say that you did a phenomenal job. This is the shader I have been looking for and didn't even realize I was looking for it. Finally I can turn off integer scaling and get rid of all that pixel wobble.
I highly advise everyone to give this shader a shot. If you like that "perfect pixel" look but can't stand the artifacts that come with it, this is the shader for you.
I love this theme, but the handhelds just look horrible. All the consoles are pretty square anyway so you can get away with them, but then handhelds are usually horizontal or vertical and even if you put a thickness on them to create a 3d effect they still look terrible.
