Re: [Solved] Autostart Emulationstation

That is ok for my setup since using puty to ssh in still works fine and I rarely use remote connect. Mostly it is used with mouse and keyboard or controller.

Re: Autostart Emulationstation

ok I have tried your method via the profile file and can not get it to function propperly. I have used the line just like you gave it, I have also tried other setups like [ -n "${SSH_CONNECTION}" ] || /usr/bin/emulationstation , and /home/pi/emulationstation and none of the three have worked.

Re: Power via the other USB port

NO YOU DO NOT WANT TO POWER YOUR PI FROM ITS USB PORTS. This will damage its internal componenets. If you have a usb hub that leaks power to the pi you can very carefully open up the usb wire and cut the red wire inside and power will no longer leak to the pi. This only works on powered usb hubs do ...

Re: Faytech 10" Touchscreen - is it working?

the solution that I found was that the power supply of the driver board was to close to the screen in the back and was causing this to happen.
