Volumio 3 and GUI


sorry for my bad English.

Ich want to create a Inetradio with a Rasp 3b+ with a touch Display and Volumio.
The Rasp with Volumio works fine over a browser session with an other device, I can change the webradio stations or play Music from my NAS.

But the Touchscreen show only the DOS Session with promt etc… I can not start the Gui. And I can not download a GUI Plugin :-(.

Can I use the Gui only when I a payed member are? I don’t wont to have all the other features from Volumio, only I wont is hear webradio and control it over the GUI.

What can I do?
Antworten gerne auch in Deutsch.

Thanx and Kingly Greatings

no you only need a the touch display plugin and enable it and some settings in the userconfig.txt :slight_smile:

do you know what brand and type of your display? with version 3 you need a free account and login on your pi to get the plugins.

Sorry the brand is byed from AliExpress, it works fine without GUI. How can I install the plugin in my free accound?

I have a free account and the plugin download page is empty. I can’t download anything in the free account :frowning:

if you have your account and you did your login…
goto plugins in the menu on the left there you can find your plugins.

you have 2 tabs on top one tab is installed plugins and the other one should show the plugins
in the folders you will find them all
