Not really a "problem", just a couple of questions about improving user experience !
I've been using OctoPrint this way, for a while :
OctoPi + OctoPrint + X11 + Chromium running in kiosk mode. No desktop ! Works fine but a bit slow...
Currently experimenting with vanila Raspberry Pi OS, OctoPrint being insatlled using KLAUH, along with Klipper. No desktop !
Mainsail and Fluidd are barely usable on the Pi 3 B+. KlipperScreen is not an option : no configuration files editing.
Being used to OctoPrint, OctoKlipper looks like the best "GUI" for the printer, and is pretty fast (at least compared with the other interfaces).
But Chromium is a resource hog ! I had a look to other web browsers, but I'm not sure what is the best one : many are not maintained !
I also activated (raspi-config) GL and glamor, maxed up GPU memory to 256K, but not sure I got any improvment.
Also activated "WebGPU" that was disabled in chromium. Don't see a real difference...
So the questions are :
- witch RasPi browser should I use ?
- what optimizations - if any - could make sense ?
Purchasing a Pi4 is not an option. But I could buy something cheaper if is more powerfull than a Pi3 (say +50% to +100%)...
Replacing the Pi with a Tablet PC is not an option (two old Surface Pro handy, but no room, and need for the GPIO with direct access, not remote gpio)
