Ubuntu desktop on Raspberry Pi 4

Last Thursday evening, Ubuntu announced the release of Ubuntu 20.10 “Groovy Gorilla” with desktop support for the Raspberry Pi 4 (4 and 8Gb). So I took it for a quick test drive!

When opening the Raspberry Pi Imager tool, the new Ubuntu Desktop OS is already available. You can burn it to an SD card, but as I wanted a faster and more reliable disc, I reused the 32Gb Flash Drive from this earlier post about USB Boot and flashed the new Ubuntu OS to it.

Once the Imager tool has finished burning the OS to the disc, you just pop it into the Raspberry Pi and power it. And yes there it is, straight from the USB Flash Drive, no additional steps needed (EEPROM of my Raspberry Pi was already up-to-date)! A full 64bit Ubuntu OS which is now even more in-line with my daily Linux work-PC. SKDMAN, Visual Studio Code, Java 15 (AdoptOpenJDK)… all installed in a matter of minutes.

I will need more test time and really start using it for some Java development, but it seems the inexpensive Raspberry Pi can compete with much more costly laptops.

Tools and Images to Build a Raspberry Pi n8n server

n8n-pi

Tools and Images to Build a Raspberry Pi n8n server

Introduction

The purpose of this project is to create a Raspberry Pi image preconfigured with n8n so that it runs out of the box.

What is n8n?

n8n is a no-code/low code environment used to connect and automate different systems and services. It is programmed using a series of connected nodes that receive, transform, and then transmit date from and to other nodes. Each node represents a service or system allowing these different entities to interact. All of this is done using a WebUI.

Why n8n-pi?

Whevever a new technology is released, two common barriers often prevent potential users from trying out the technology:

  1. System costs
  2. Installation & configuration challenges

The n8n-pi project eliminates these two roadblocks by preconfiguring a working system that runs on easily available, low cost hardware. For as little as $40 and a few minutes, they can have a full n8n system up and running.

Thanks!

This project would not be possible if it was not for the help of the following:

Raspberry Pi OS vs Ubuntu: Which One is Best for Desktop Usage?

Most of you should already know Raspberry Pi OS as it’s the default operating system for any beginner on Raspberry Pi, but other options are available, and Ubuntu is the most popular among them.

Especially for PC users, if you are used to it on your standard computer, you might be tented to switch to it on Raspberry Pi too. Is it worth it? We’ll take a look at this in this article, I’ve tested both and can share my impressions with you.

Anyway, I compare everything in this video, and you’ll understand how I evaluated these criteria and pick this score for each of them.

TensorFlow Lite Object Detection using Raspberry Pi and Pi Camera

I have not created the Object Detection model, I have just merely cloned Google’s Tensor Flow Lite model and followed their Raspberry Pi Tutorial which they talked about in the Readme! You don’t need to use this article if you understand everything from the Readme. I merely talk about what I did!

Prerequisites:

  • I have used a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and PI Camera Board (3D printed a case for camera board). **I had this connected before starting and did not include this in the 90 minutes **(plenty of YouTube videos showing how to do this depending on what Pi model you have. I used a video like this a while ago!)

  • I have used my Apple Macbook which is Linux at heart and so is the Raspberry Pi. By using Apple you don’t need to install any applications to interact with the Raspberry Pi, but on Windows you do (I will explain where to go in the article if you use windows)
