Mini-Tutorial to get a linux Desktop GUI working on Pine64+

Ok, so I decided to start over, , getting Problem: nothing provides powerdevil5 needed by plasma5-session, so I have manually installed powerdevil5 and in process of product upgrade. success! Strange new environment. I assume repositories software is limited?

Generally the repositories for many distros on arm64 are still work in progress, but it was a lot worse last year... you can however run 32-bit arm software (armhf) on your 64bit system...

indeed, I re wrote the micro and started over. now discovering how it works and what is avail to run on it. it has some slow spots but over all a Major improvement over the last linux distro I tried a few weeks ago. looks good so far. I plan to pair with an NEC P-403 with OPS atsc tuner, our outdoor media setup.

so I assume Kodi is not yet avail? not that I need for this set up, but so I have an idea where development is.

I am now logged on with the pine64 running Opensuse. looks good, I can be very happy with this. How to I add repository for the 32bit applications? any other hints?

May I ask, how do I get my on board bluetooth module working. In settings, it says "bluetooth turned off" then a button "fix it" that does not seem to do anything. should I try a USB dongle, or do I need to preform a task to activate my module? I am using wired USB for now.

It booted to a graphic screen with 2 windows, one is a command line prompt and the other is a console log for pine64. I attempted to resize by install gparted and it failed.  I am sure my disk space is limitation is part of my troubles. I will attempt to use the command line entries again in the partial GUI environment. If anyone has advice please advise..

Perhaps your sd card is not truly the size it says. I have run in to that problem with sd cards that were bought on amazon, and weren't any weird brand.

When your at your regular desktop screen, go down to the chameleon click him then click install/remove software packages. There are a lot of things available, so focus on the Network/Communication software folders, it will be time consuming but you pretty much need to go through and read the summary of the various packages you find that pertain to bluetooth. I suggest anyone that has to do with Bluetooth drivers etc. select and install those, then update, then reboot. After your back go into your network setup and set up your bluetooth module.
