- Openhabian is destroying my desktop setup on my Raspberry Pi
I’m a long user and lover of OpenHAB which i utilizes together with several other systems to control my home (light, power/heat/vindows and blinds/warnings ect.
Now I know that my setup/installation choice is somewhat different from the standard way but I really do like to utilize a standard Raspbian OS with a desktop installed and a RealVNC enables which helps me logg into the RPI remotely no matter where I am.
I’m in the process of transferring my OpenHAB installation from a Raspberry pi 3B to a Raspberry Pi 4B - 4GB and in that process i have tried to utilize Openhabian but… It destroys my Desktop setup every time… I dont know the specifiks about whats going on behind the scene when i’m installing openhabian but every time i try to use Openhabian is changes my desktop han breaks links (i.e. after installation of openhabian i cannot open a shell) and my desktop looks very different.
It is extreemly annoying and I do not understand why the Openhabian needs to change my desktop??? I really dont understand why it it nessesary to change a desktop enviroment in order to install OpenHAB it seems completely unnesserary to me. the are guidance for people to install OpenHAB on Linux machines… Does Openhab change their desktop cenfiguration? I hope not because that must be very annoying to them i guess…
Currently I have made my own script to install Openhab without Openhabian in order to be relieved from this change of desktop. However I’m all setup except Frontail…
Can somebody please tell me Why Openhabian needs to change my desktop configuration?
Can someby tell me how i Install Frontail without using Openhabian (i.e. via Shell commands)
Thanks for helping me out
