    piCorePlayer installation from full Raspian

    Hi there, is it possible to install piCorePlayer from the control line of a Raspberry Pi3B+ using full Raspian instead of the piCP image ?
    How todo it ?

    The reason being, that I need to rotate my touch function of my scree and the original image doesnt allow many linux functions like apt-get install.

    NO

    pCP is a full Linux Distrobution its like saying can I put Raspbian on my Raspbian

    You can certainly install Squeezelite, Jivelite and LMS on raspbian though

    You can invert the Raspberry Pi Touchscreen in pCP

    Have you asked on the pcp thread about support for your screen - give full complete details of screen type, manufacturer, model id, source etc.

    If it is a common model for a Pi - it is likely somebody has already worked out the issues or at worst tell you it may never work fully and stop wasting time with pcp.

    hi Bjoern,

    piCorePlayer is a minute Linux distribution running in RAM. Didn't you notice it only took a few seconds to download and 10 seconds to burn to SD card? The latest pCP is 120MB versus many GB for Raspbian.

    There are audio distributions based on Raspbian that might be more suitable.

    regards
    Greg
