    I've still got no clue what an SBC is, but either way the answer is no. For an in-Kodi browser someone needs to pony-up the hours to develop a proper in-Kodi browser, and that's a non-trivial ask. Currently the only (but sucky) option would be running another general purpose distro which has Xorg in the background via chroot or Docker - there's a thread in these forums somewhere on it.


    Single Board Computer - SBC, like the Raspberry Pi, Odroid etc.


    OK, thank you for the reply, I understand. I found the Docker method thread, but it's not really what I had in mind.


    Nope. It requires a large pile of libraries that we don't currently require and X windows, which is present in Raspian but not LE.


    I understand :( Thank you for the reply.


    In that case, are there any plans for a kiosk-type browser for SBC's running Libre? Something custom, as an add-on, just for Libre? Or, maybe an ICE implementation (like in Peppermint OS) for LibreELEC, where we could create an addon for a website, using some type of universal wrapper?

    chromium add-on is for x86_64 hardware only


    Hey guys, I understand that Chromium is x84_64 only, but for the SBC touting users, wouldn't this be a viable alternative: Raspberry Pi • View topic - Kweb Suite (Minimal Kiosk Browser, omxplayerGUI) ?


    I'm not a coder, so I don't know what this would imply in terms of development, to add it to LibreELEC, but it would be good to get a sort of browser for those websites/services that don't have a Kodi add-on.

    IARL should work almost out-of-the-box... at least, last time I tried to make it work I get it easily, you can follow these steps:

    GameMaker Pi ports awew interesting just in case GameMaker decide to port more games, these three games are just a prove of concept and by the moment they are not going to make more conversions... I don't know wy but these three games lost their sound in Libreelec 7... so it is an obsolet feature... also, Maldita Castilla is coming to PS4 and it is already in XOne ...


    Thank you very much for the answers, you helped me a lot. I managed to find a way to exit the games with my gamepad and I managed to get EmulationStation working.


    I'm going to look into the IARL add-on and see if it's a good idea to use it or just get roms from the web.


    As I understand, EmulationStation is no longer actively maintained by it's author. Are you in any way maintaining the version downloadable through your add-on? Can we expect it to continue to be up to date and fully compatible with Gamestarter in the future? (It looks sooo much better than the default RetroArch frontend :) )

    I see you have the hacklib (/storage/lib), maybe you installed gamemaker pi ports from Gamestarter settings? If so, they are no compatibles, you need to disable hacklib (toggling the addon) or manually renaming /storage/lib to /storage/lib_off for example.


    Toggling the addon didn't work but renaming the folder worked :D Thank you so very much :D


    Now one more question, since it's included in your addon (hope this isn't considered thread highjacking) but, how do you use the IARL add-on? Like, how can you play the games you download through it? And what about the Gamemaker Ports? How do you use those?


    I appologize, I'm a bit of a noob at this in particular :(

    Here is the output from the first command:


    It seems that there's a dependency missing. How do I install it? Shouldn't it be installed automatically when installing EmulationStation?

    About emulationstation... it is strange, in my installation with LE8 alpha 5 it works... please check the log here: /storage/.config/gamestarter.log


    About the gamepad, try to config input buttons when launching retroarch directly, there you can assign a button as a "hotkey" and then others to make combinations for exit, save, load, change shaders, open menu...


    Got it with the controller, I'll try and see if I can come up with anything :)


    As for the gamestarter.log, I just looked it up, through Samba and FTP and it's blank. 0 kb and nothing in it :(

    First of all, thank you very much for this addon, it's awesome Keep up the awesome work!


    Secondly, I have a few questions. I'm running the latest LE Alpha build on a Raspberry Pi 3 and I installed EmulationStation from the Gamestarter settings menu. RetroArch works perfectly, but whenever I select EmulationStation as my default frontend and click to open Gamecenter, the screen goes blank and instead of opening EmulationStation, it just restarts Kodi. What do I need to do to make it work?


    And for the second question, once you opened a game, like Super Mario Bros. for example, how do you go back to the RetroArch/EmulationStation menu on a generic controller? I don't have a PS3/PS4 or XBox controller, just one of those wired, generic ones, that don't have that PlayStation or XBox main menu/lobby button.


    Thank you in advance

    The solution for this is to include the addon in a repo...


    Just an idea, but I saw that quite a few repos are hosted on GitHub. Maybe you can create your own repo that we can add in Kodi: HOW-TO:Create a repository for add-ons - Official Kodi Wiki | Add-on repositories - Official Kodi Wiki
