LXQt - Desktop:
Optimized lightweight desktop without the bloatware. Slick and fluid GUI, however, more resource heavy than LXDE.

Desktop can be run by typing startx
You can also have DietPi boot directly to the desktop by using dietpi-autostart and selecting Desktop.

GIMP:
Optional desktop application:

MSpaint on steroids. If you need to edit pixels with a vast number of tools, GIMP is the only program you'll need. Just don't be a GIMP about it :D

Mycroft AI:
Free and open source voice assistant.

Interactive install:
  1. Branch selection: For inexperienced users we recommend the master branch as well: y
  2. Auto updates: It slows down the the startup process a bid, but it anyway takes a while to load all skills, so we recommend this as well: y
  3. Add Mycroft commands to PATH: Chose NO here, since the installer runs as user "mycroft", which is no login user, which is why this has no effect: n
  4. Check code before submitting: If you are an official Mycroft developer, choose y, else: n

Initial setup:
  1. If you did no reboot after install, load Mycroft commands to current shell session: . /etc/bashrc.d/mycroft.sh
  2. Start CLI client: mycroft-cli-client
  3. You should see and at best hear the invitation to pair your device, e.g.: PairingSkill - INFO - Pairing code: XXYYZZ
  4. Visit https://home.mycroft.ai/ to start pairing and configuring your device + skills.

Build Mimic for offline TTS support (optional):
  1. NB: this requires about 3 GiB RAM and takes a while, so assure that you have enough memory (4 GiB recommended), in case increase your swap file size and grab yourself a coffee.
  2. cd /mnt/dietpi_userdata/mycroft-core/scripts
  3. sudo -u mycroft ./install-mimic.sh
