Installed and seems to work on my PI4 8GB.

Love the project but I do have two questions:
1. I may be missing it but do this have the OpenPlotter package manager included? (for updating various versions, etc.) I realize this is 64bit should still be doable?
2. How do I change the native resolution of touch screen interface? I have 1080p screens and to be fully functional we need a way to easily change the resolution of the display and the UI. Did I miss this in the documentation somewhere?

Great work integrating this.

Great work integrating this.

1. You install updates just as on any Debian based Linux. 

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

OpenPlotter doesn’t support this OS. The OS itself will you let install openplotter (see add-ons directory
under your home)

2. To change resolution you edit /boot/config.txt (as user root) and reboot



Thanks

Thanks for the reply

1. Glad to know sudo apt update/upgrade will manage all packages
2. I can change the screen resolution in config.txt, no issue there, but the UI doesn't seem to scale with the resolution. it's becomes tiny at higher resolutions. Is there a way to set the cool UI console interface you built?
3. Is there a way to edit which icons show and/or create new ones?

If #3 is documented somewhere I'm missing please just point me there and I can use that.

Everything will be relatively smaller on higher resolution. It’s supposed to. 
You can edit your desktop with a bit of knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript.
Everything is in one file /var/www/bbn-launcher/bbn-launcher.js

Got it, thx. I'll dig into the .js and see what you have there. It would be able really cool feature to be able to change the scale or set a specific size of the launcher UI either on the fly or on a fresh boot via a separate config file.

You probably just need to set zoom CSS property in there.
I’ve tried setting zoom: 2; for css body element and
it worked fine

Worked like a champ, thanks! I think for a broader user base, exposing this with something like a basic .ini or .conf file in the same directory as the launcher would add a LOT of utility to the platform. Thanks for support!
