Veyon for Raspbian?
Hello! I am a technician for a community college. We are currently using Veyon to great affect in a lab environment. Recently are team has worked on using Raspberry Pi devices for digital signage. They are running a Linux build of Raspbian. Is there any plans or steps to make Veyon work with this build of linux? Its an offshoot of Debian so I'm hoping compatibility with Raspberry pi's shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Being able to control raspberry pi's with veyon would be a very great feature!
this is an interesting use case! Building packages for Debian (no matter which platform/architecture) isn't that complicated, just have a look at our README file. Besides that we recognized the growing demand for armel/armhf/arm64 binary packages so we might provide them in the future as well.

I wasnt able to be a part of the testing process itself, but the team who ran it said the response time and refresh rate was wildly inconsistent or unstable. I'll get the distro build they created and share it here when I can.
Hi..i am a new user here. As per my knowledge it is similar to Scratch only. Scratch is one of the most popular pieces of software on Raspberry Pi. This is largely due to the way it makes programming accessible – while it is simple to learn, it covers many of the concepts that are used in more advanced languages. Scratch really does provide a great introduction to programming for all ages.

How's the testing going? Any chance of uploading your test build as it's something I am very interested to try out too.
I am a TESOL teacher and I use Veyon on the Orange Pi. I use 10 stations of the Orange Pi PC that are linked by ethernet cable all mounted to a 2 meter long plastic conduit with all electrical and network cabling inside the conduit. It is portable, so I can just pick it up off the table and load it in my car to bring to the next location.
I use the Orange Pi Armbian build, and I compiled the Veyon deb package using the instructions in the Veyon documentation. It works fine for me, in fact it works better than my notebook PC setup in my office, perhaps because the Veyon version is different.

Be aware that Raspbian has its own non-standard ABI.
In standard Debian armhf means ARMv7 instructions with hardware floating point.
In Raspbian all Debian packages have been rebuild with ARMv6 instructions, for compatibility with older Pi that do not understand the newer instructions.
They do are compiled with hardware floating point, so it is not armel either.
Any chance you will be maintaining an official Debian package submitted to Debian at some point instead of the current situation?
That would simplify things. Let the Debian derivatives do the compiling, and allow users to just apt-get it.
0 I want to install Veyon on the RPi4. I have read about Debian packages and the instructions. I had a look in my /etc/apt/sources.list and it had an entry for buster, so I added the line for Veyon Buster: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/veyon/stable/ubuntu bionic main I then tried to run the command sudo add-apt-repository ppa:veyon/stable. .
