Re: Is posible to install Raspbian on Winbook TW700

I have this Winbook TW700 tablet Windows 8, 8gb. Wonder if there is any chance to install Raspbian on this type of tablet. Thanks! Definitely not, Raspbian is a fork of Debian ARMHF for ARM CPU. You could try x86 Debian Stretch with RPD; https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspberry-pi-desktop/

Re: Screenshot?

No one appears to have mentioned Shutter which is in the repositories: Which, yet again, begs the question "Why?" Unless you give some kind of justification - some kind of reason for wanting something other than ' scrot ' (which is installed by default), nobody's going to go chasing a URL. Seeing t...

Windows natively does not read Linux Ext Partitions.
Can the OP not boot the Pi with the UK keyboard layout and change it to the US layout afterwards with raspi-config?

No, because you make changes in the NoobS GUI:

Re: Screenshot?

AndrewFromMelbourne/raspi2png is pretty magic, too. Grabs the hardware framebuffer Seems to do about the same as scrot or, for that matter, display from ImageMagick . Not that I am saying otherwise, mind you, but is there any particular reason to prefer Andrew's program over either of these? No one...

Re: Upgrade to kernel 4.14?

To my surprise, rpi-update is included, *and* it seems to work, but I guess it doesn't integrate with the desktop startup files and -locations. (Unsurprisingly.) After reboot, still 4.9 and no 4.14 option in grub. My question: rpi-update is not the way to go, right? So how do I upgrade to a kernel ...

rpi-update should never, ever be used unless specifically instructed to do so by a Raspberry Pi engineer. The appropriate time to tell me that would have been before now.
