Bootloader, Air Mouse Support and other suggestions

Postby dpujdak » Sat Jun 15, 2019 4:12 pm

Hi guys,

I have installed Zorin OS 15 on my MINIX Neo Z64W connected to my TV via HDMI.

1. The bootloader wasn't working properly because of missing bootia32.efi . Please include it into zorin distro files. Here is a link which helped me with the installation: http://hwswbits.blogspot.com/2015/03/ge ... o-z64.html

2. I am using Air mouse on my TV Box (no keyboard, no mouse). Periodically (every 1-3 hour or so) air mouse stops working and removing USB receiver and putting it back doesn't help. Also some of the buttons (eg. play/stop in KODI) are also not working. I have to restart the device to make it work again by pressing the power button on the device. I would like to see that air mouse support in the OS. I have attached a picture of the air mouse I got. They might vary but I guess they all are the same. Note: that air mouse was working properly on my previous OS LibreELEC.

3. I would like to see Zorin OS more UI responsible. In many places when I click something the UI does not show any progress status and does not respond. For example when I run some app I cant see if it's starting or not. Or when Upgrade Software window clicked Install nothing happens for 10-15 seconds and I don't know if it's actually doing something or not.

4. Currently I found 100% and 200% UI scale available. I would like to see 125% and 150% like Windows has. I used to use 125% on my TV.

I hope my feedback helps to make Zorin OS even better.
Thank you guys for your hard work.

Looks like it is beyond the control of Team Zorin - appears it is a Linux Kernel issue:

Thanks guys, after few days I upgraded the os and the air mouse is working properly now. Good job guys.
Also I have some one more feedback:
I tried to use Zorin Connect (dounloaded from F-Droid (got LineageOS on my Moto Z2 Force). And I cannot understand what is this remote connect stands for. I was expecting to share my photos to see them on my TV, another option I was expecting was share screen of my phone to the TV.

Please let me know if I missed something. I only found a function to send files to the Zorin from my phone. But to see photos from my phone I have to send hundreds files and then I might want to remove them. Not convenient way I can say.

Anyway thanks for your good job guys. I am very impressed with what you have done.
