Sainsmart 7inch LCD touchscreen wiring

Hi, need help on the wiring for the Sainsmart touchscreen 7 inch LCD. I had to dismantle it (remove all wires), but like an idiot I didn't think to write down which wires went where. It's just the four smaller wires, green,black , white, and red wires, that connect to the ribbon cable off the screen...

Re: USB wifi disappeared

Yeah I've got another 32gb sd card I could use....
I think it was working fine until I got the touch screen working (as in replaced the /boot/kernel.img, /lib/firmware, and /lib/modules), could this be the problem?
Thanks

USB wifi disappeared

Hi, I've been using the USB wifi fine, up until now!
Not sure what I've done, but the dongle isn't showing up in the 'wpa_gui' screen, but when I do a lsusb command, it appears on there as device 006, wireless adapter.
Help please :D
Also, I'm very new to programming so take it easy.. ;)
Thanks

Re: Noob and carputer

Finally got the VNC viewer working, and also, able to copy and paste on my laptop, may sound like nothing but it's taken me ages! Haha

Re: Noob and carputer

Cheers.
I've got the driver on a cd, that came with the screen, but not sure how to get the driver onto the Rpi!

The internet here is terrible too, although I can use my phones data....

Need to get an Ethernet cable too, for connecting my laptop to the Rpi, so I can do remote Ssh ( i think!)

Re: Noob and carputer

So I've got it set up now, on the 'raspbian' os. I've also managed to connect the camera and take a photo, through the command, not sure where it stores the image though! I've also manage to increase the image size on the 7 inch screen, so it fills the whole screen now, as it didn't before. Next, I ...

Re: Noob and carputer

Cheers dude. Yeah I've heard they're pretty much the same...
Well I guess I won't be playing with the Rpi tonight then :(
Will get on to it! Cheers.

Re: Noob and carputer

Ok, so I've failed at the first hurdle! I have nothing to view anything on. I,m not sure why but I thought the raspberry pi came with a 'd-sub' connector, but it doesn't! I have with me a computer monitor with a d-sub connector and a 'dvi-d' connector, a touch screen that I've just bought for the pi...

Re: Noob and carputer

Cheers dude. I did a bit more research and found that out. Already bought the 'day time' camera module...
I've ordered everything I need (I think!)
Just received the PiHub today, no Pi yet though :(

Re: Noob and carputer

Ahhh good! :D I've seen code where you can 'switch off' the pi from within itself, so without creating a risk? I may just also add a simple switch into the dash board, for providing power to the pi form the battery, once it's in the car, to save connecting it to the ignition. But we'll see! Thank yo...

Re: Noob and carputer

Firstly thanks for the replies! I will be attempting to play with everything individually, rather than all at once. USB powered hub, is this one ok?; http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Pi-Hut-Powered-Raspberry/dp/B00B0ZOCPS/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE Obviously once I've set the P...
