Did you try the 32 bit Portable version that has no limitations that I know of and works fine on a 64 bit system.

Questions / Re: How to speed up Boinctasks, especially startup

A way around this is select one computer or move a bad computer to another group.
I cannot find a way to create groups.  I've read the whole manual!  I now have Boinctasks falling asleep again, but I've pinged all the remote computers and nothing loses any packets, which annoyed it before.  The worst is my mobiles on wireless which do ping up to 300ms often, and sometimes 1000ms.  I want to try the phones in another group to see if that helps.  That will then only block that group from displaying and leave the 7 PCs displayed?
Go to the Computers tab and click on the group field next to the computer name.
Any name will do as long as the group names are the same, you can make as many groups as you like.

You can also set a group that selects at statup.

Boinctasks lets me edit an app_config.xml, but how do I do this if the file doesn't already exist?  I'm trying to edit it on a phone, and since file access on Android is very restricted, I can't do it manually.  I was hoping Boinctasks could from my Windows PC.
If you have remote access, you can.

Go to the projects tab and select a project.
Now Extra -> Edit config file (app_config.xml)

Warning the process is irreversible, you will end up with a app_config.xml file, at least a default one.

If there isn't any file you get an error message.

Now paste the text, over the error message.

The most basic file is

Check syntax and Apply.

That works on all my Linux and Windows machines, but the Android client is older.

Lack of time forces me to put these features into BoincTasks Js,
It's so much simpler and pleasant for me to add features in the Js app, like at least 10 times faster.
Both BoincTasks and BoincTasks Js can run at the same time without much impact.

I forgot about the setting, go to settings : and remove the check at Lock screen, not you can rotate the screen.

I see, that's not the recommended OS.
The recommended 32 bit version installed BOINC effortless as well as sendsensor. 


I installed the latest version bullseye on my card.
Upon installation select the desktop version.
Installed BOINC
and installed sendsensor.
Start bullseye sendsensor --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox

apt show sendsensor

cat /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="10 (buster)"

I did a remove:
sudo apt-get remove sendsensor

Did you try a reboot?

Google gives this answer:
sudo apt install libxshmfence1 libglu1

sudo /sbin/ldconfig -v

Make sure to follow the new instructions here
Make sure you install 1.1 Arm
No need to install lm-sensors
Read the last chapter trouble shooter.

Are you running the desktop version?
Raspberry Pi OS with desktop

This missing library should be installed by sudo apt install libxshmfence1

I forgot that Rasberry Pi is a different case it doesn't need lm-sensors it uses cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp and internal command.

Updated the page accordingly
