Not sure if this belongs in the “GoPiGo” section…
We are unable to load any program via VNC that has a GUI (except Terminal and whatever you call that Python editor).
OS: Dexter Ind.’ OS that came on the microSD card (dated around Oct 2016).
Upgraded: I did perform the upgrade of the OS, to get the latest. Also performed the Dexter update for latest code.
When connected via VNC through a web browser, we get to the Raspberry Pi desktop showing all the icons. We can browse folders and files, double click on Python files and the editor for that shows up. We are able to open Terminal as well and enter commands.
But, attempting to open any other GUI-based app just “flashes the screen” and closes.
ps doesn’t show it running either.
The following GUIs we are unable to open:
- any Python script with a GUI (e.g. Basic Robot Control w/Gui)
I didn’t have time to dig into the syslog for more details.
Wondering if this is a known issue and if there was a quick fix.
I also have downloaded the latest Dexter Ind. image and made another 8 GB card with it. I’ll give that a try the next time we have time to play with it.
