Back to RasPiOS from Ubuntu
I returned to RasPiOS from Ubuntu a week ago. In my impression, Ubuntu is adorable operating system for RPi. I was already familiar with Ubuntu, so I was not confused. It was totally same as desktops.
On the touch-screen display, the on-screen keyboard has a very flexible advantage more than RasPiOS. GUI and themes are also luxurious look. Ubuntu supports easy configurations and many user-friendly features like simple batch rename.
But I went back to RasPiOS after a month. I will explain why I came back.
Ubuntu is heavy on the Raspberry Pi 4B 8GB RAM even it’s fully overclocked.
- CPU and memory usage, and the temperature is higher than RasPiOS.
- Wayland based interface not displays the Dock sometimes, when booted or reboot.
- Often there is a lack of interface.
Not free from PulseAudio.
Some GPIO sound card HAT works with ALSA. However, PulseAudio is connected to Ubuntu-Minimal. To remove PulseAudio, it should be:
sudo dpkg --remove --force-depends pulseaudio
And this will break the APT dependencies.
Can’t detect 5G Wi-Fi internet.
I’m in Korea, Republic of. Is the country where the Internet environment is well developed. But unfortunately Ubuntu couldn’t detect 5G Wi-Fi default. RasPiOS can be done.
MEGASync must be run with the terminal.
- Start on startup is not working. RasPiOS can be done.
- It does not working with double-click or in Dock because of Wayland.
In my experience, Ubuntu doesn’t work properly for Raspberry Pi 4. I really like Ubuntu but I think it is not yet a bread for RPi.
