Showing SkyAware on RPi touch screen?

Does anyone know how to display the SkyAware page on the Raspberry Pi Touchscreen like shown on the FA ADS-B facebook page here:

Mine is just showing the black PiAware login page.

you will need to have a browser installed which requires the full desktop interface and not only the command line installed on the Raspberry.

If this is given, open the local adress on the Raspberry

Okay thank you, do I have to do anything special after flashing the Raspberry interface onto the SD card or just plug the pro stick into the USB?

There is thread about this here as well, with a parts list.

You mean the piaware image? That has not got a desktop environment. You‘ll have to install a full raspian, then add the piaware package, then open a browser and type in the address.

I guess it is also possible to add the desktop environment to the sdcard image install.

That’s what I mean. How do you add the piaware package after adding raspbian

Adding Pixel Desktop to Lite image
