Q4OS for PINEBOOK
#81
Aren't the driver's available in apt repo? I would like to have better video performance, I got OpenJK built yesterday, but it runs slow; quake 2 also runs a little sluggish too.
Power Distribution Tech and AV by trade, but I have been using Linux since around 2002.  I like the raspberry pi and pinebook pro, SBCs and the possibilities they open.

I tried the https://sourceforge.net/projects/q4os/fi...p/download Q4OS on an microSD card:

I very much like the look and feel, and (when its eventually booted) it feels faster then the KDE Neon on eMMC......

Unlike KDE Neon (which I think is good too, although a bit sluggish and heavy) Q4OS put a constant smile on my face :-) when fiddling with it.

Maybe I will install it on eMMC when I will be able to connect to my bluetooth speakers (which didn't work last night).

Will an install on eMMC make it boot faster than on microSD??

Not only does it boot faster but it runs faster too since so many things cache to disk.

I would like to get the touchpad to "tap-to-click".  
It worked in the .r2 version,  even after upgrades, but not in a new
emmc install.
I have tried gsettings and the adding in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-pine64-touchpad.conf
using either "Tapping" or "tap-to-click",  but can't seem to make respond.
