Oh, and it has sound effects.

To run in a terminal: /opt/eDEX-UI/edex-ui

To exit eDEX-UI, press Alt+F4, or run this command in the terminal: exit
Change settings with Ctrl+Shift+S.

Novaspirit Tech made an excellent walkthrough video a while ago:

Fortunately, eDEX-UI is very easy to install on your Nvidia Jetson in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Nvidia Jetson.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install eDEX-UI.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Nvidia Jetpack for your specific Jetson (Jetson TX1, Jetson Nano, Jetson TX2, Jetson Xavier, or Jetson Orin).
eDEX-UI will run on L4T Ubuntu ARM64.
