I previously covered the tabletop cabinet in detail in this blog. So basicly, after the semester ended, we separated the parts between the team and needed another computer for the cabinet. Luckily, I had personally backed the Pine A64 project on Kickstarter and received it in the mail in June. From there, I was able to purchase a case for it, along with new memory card, and required cables.
All it needed now was a monitor. I ended up purchasing one recently for my quad-monitor computer setup, so I just used that new one with the hdmi input and it fit in the previously built base on the cabinet. I believe it may have even been a slightly bigger screen.
After that, I installed Debian Linux on the machine and was able to have a similar setup like we did on the first with the task bars hidden at startup and with the menu always running in the background, with the games in full screen mode once they were selected.
Pictured below is the final product that we used at the student organization fair, which turned out very nice.
