Re: Raspbian ARMv7 Image

So I can make my own armv7 OS Why not download from the Pi's download page the "Ubuntu Mate 15.10" image and try it out? It's Ubuntu's ARMv7 Linux, plus Raspbian's Pi² ARMv7 kernel v4.1, plus some Raspbian Pi drivers (like Jamesh' nice hardware mouse cursor, I think. Full list is in this thread ). ...

Re: nach Stromausfall Totalausfall

Hatte dann die µSD-Karte in einen PC gesteckt und dort alle möglichen Sachen drüberlaufen lassen. Fehler wurden keine entdeckt, ...

Concerning the problem with Gluon's JavaFX port for ARM devices where the input devices can only be used when run with sudo, it seems to be a bug.

Re: Jessie and XFCE: working nearly?

You can get the same effect (bug) in a pure OpenBox desktop with most or all GTK+3 applications if you select the "Clearlooks" theme. Solution: select another theme (with LXDE you do it with lxappearance). Danke, that sounds well because indeed I use the Clearlooks theme. I'll try your solution soon.

And normally this is it. Now with Jessie, XFCE basically works but some applications show "inverted co...

Thanks Fruitoftheloom for the clarification. It's a bit complicated to see through... Juxt going to an ARMV7 compile won't make much of a difference - Foundation Tests shows little or no improvement.
