I'm trying to get P8 to run in a window on my Linux Windows install on my Raspberry Pi, so I can have it and my editor up on the same desktop (like I do in real Windows). But by default, P8 runs fullscreen. I've tried launching it from terminal with the flags outlined in the docs and even by editing the config file, but none of that is working, it's still going fullscreen.

Anyone else tried to run it windowed on Linux (RPi)? ..and got it working? Or is all that windowed stuff for "real" Windows only.

i'm not even capable to open it in fullscreen from the terminal so ... after five sec of intense research understand i forgot the "NODE SLASH" before the pico8 in terminal but it change nothing about window if i add -windowed 1. Disapointed but not surpise. T_T

Probably a dumb question, but does ALT+Enter take it out of fullscreen like in Windows?

Just bumping this. Anyone else been able to run PICO-8 in windowed mode on a Raspberry Pi? Doing a workshop this weekend teaching kids gamedev with PICO-8 on Raspberry Pi and would be really nice to be able to have PICO-8 side-by-side with another window.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3B running the 2018-04-18 Raspbian Desktop release from the official site.

I haven't tried this but you might want to consider installing and using "xnest", which can open a new window within the current system.
So, from a terminal:

sudo apt-get install xnest
Xnest :1 -geometry 800x600 &
export DISPLAY=:1
xterm &

(xterm or another terminal emulator, maybe lxterm ? otherwise install apt-get install xterm)

and it should open a blank terminal into the Xnest window. Now you can run pico-8 and it will be fullscreen, inside this smaller window!

Haven't tested it in real!

Hoy, the xnest solution isn't working, p8 launch in full screen and don't give a f... about the emulated screen. At least nice idea, maybe juste need another configuration ?

Same problem here and still not fixed, making it impossible to really use Pico-8 on Raspbian, since I'd need more windows to sample code etc.

Can you give more info about how you start pico8?
(example from a terminal, from .xinitrc, from .bashrc)
