    Touch Friendly Web Client

    Hi Guys,

    I've been using LMS for years now mainly on raspberry pi using picoreplayer. Recently I decided to stick the server on my main Debian server, which works a treat.

    But I have a small pi with touch screen in my kitchen and I like to find an easier way to control the music from that device. currently, I'm using the default web client, which isn't very touch friendly. I've tried to figure out how to install jivelite, but without any success. I'm not a super techie person, but generally able to follow basic instructions, but not come across anything very clear to follow.


    1. Is it possible to run jivelite on the pi that's not running LMS? which is just running rasbian?
    2. Are there any other clients for linux which are easier to setup?
    3. Is there a more touch friendly web ui?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    You could install Material skin (from the plugins) and then navigate to http://lms:9000/Material

    You could try to install Jivelite under Raspbian - there are a number of pre-requisites though.
    This might still be valid https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post891818

    However, if you are not using the Raspberry Pi for anything else then you could simply install another copy of pCP and then uses the menus from that to install Jivelite.

    Thanks Paul, I found material design skin, this seems much better for touch.

    I'm using the pi for various other stuff otherwise I'd just install picoreplayer and install jivelite that way.

    Thanks for pointing me towards material skin :-)
