Raspberry Pi / Re: using GUI desktop without mouse

Ah... I tce-loaded gtktetris, which in turn grabbed from font configuration dependencies, and all the System Tools started working. Before that, when the SystemTools weren't working, I tried running them from command line and got a "libfontconfig.so.1 couldn't be found" error, which tipped me off. Seems "tceload -wi TC" missed this.

open your  .xsession  file and change:
Code: [Select]
/user/local/bin/Xorg -nolisten tcp &to:
Code: [Select]
/user/local/bin/Xorg -nolisten tcp -nocursor &
.xsession doesn't have any lines with /usr/local/bin/Xorg.

However, I did figure out how to bring up the right-click menu with Alt+Tab. However, nothing in the SystemTools submenu does anything except for XKill (useless without mouse I think) and Top. My guess is, I'm missing some TCZ files.

Hi bonbonbaron
I sounds like maybe you want to get rid of the mouse cursor completely? If so, open your  .xsession  file and change:
Code: [Select]
/user/local/bin/Xorg -nolisten tcp &to:
Code: [Select]
/user/local/bin/Xorg -nolisten tcp -nocursor &

Raspberry Pi / using GUI desktop without mouse
« Last post by bonbonbaron on January 18, 2020, 09:48:03 AM »
I bought a Targus AKB122 keyboard, which has a micro-USB plug, to use with my Pi Zero W. (This Pi only has one micro USB slot available other than power. I'd like to avoid buying multi-USB peripherals if I can.)

Since I've always been able to jump around Windows 7 and 10 using just my keyboard, I figured I'd be able to do the same in TinyCore. This is not the case. When I run startx, an ugly mouse pointer sits in the  middle of the screen, and none of my keyboard buttons do anything. Tried going back to command line with ctrl+alt+backspace, nothing. Ctrl+alt+T, nothing. I'm stuck until I unplug the Pi. I had to add bootcode "text" to rescue my future boots from this situation.

Searching for workarounds, I googled around and saw something about using numpad to simulate mouse movements, but my keyboard has no numpad. Is mouse usage absolutely necessary? If so, can I somehow map my arrow keys to mouse motions? If I can, then how?

Thanks for your time,
Michael

Raspberry Pi / Re: wifi.sh says "no devices found" on piCore 9.0.3

Gotcha. Well, at any rate it doesn't appear to work on 9.0.3. Wish I knew why.

TCE Corepure64 / Re: trouble with ncursesw-dev when compiling for Pure64 11.0-beta
« Last post by andyj on January 18, 2020, 06:45:05 AM »
I feel your pain. PHP, net-snmp, and iftop also require hacks in their build scripts to compile with ncursesw. Finding those hacks takes a while, and can change with versions.
