Armbian - Xenial Desktop (Pinebook)
#77
So it isn't just me. I guess there is no obvious way to shift branches. That's unfortunate.

I've mostly been using the original preview of Armbian. It works well, besides the lack of support for some of the hardware.

The last week I've mostly been using the smelly version from MicroSD because all I've been doing is scripting and web browsing in short bursts.

Odd. I didn't have any issue with using the brightness control that's a part of the battery applet. Just remember CLICK AND DRAG. If you just click on the bar to lower brightness it'll jump straight to zero.

Slow window resizing on both versions of Armbian can be worked around by disabling compositing, with the aveat that dragging becomes slower.

Overlay scrollbar bugs seem to be he cause of the lack of scrollbar in terminal windows. I think they can be disabled. I just installed lxterminal and set it to default instead.

For whatever reason, Firefox is way faster than Chromium too if it's bothering anyone.

the eMMC isn't even visible as a device with the legacy kernel.
