Re: Bluetooth Keyboard - trust and connect errors?

The 'bluez-test-device' script simply does not have a 'connect' command, so that will never work. It looks like the 'bluez-test-input connect' command is timing out. Make sure the keyboard is on and in range (and make sure the BT address is correct. Double check it.) If it has been paired and trust...

Re: Bluetooth Keyboard - trust and connect errors?

According to your posted transcript, you did not use 'sudo' (see above.) Makes a big difference, especially when the error contains something like ''Error.AccessDenied" Now that you're using the 'sudo', you're getting better results. Now try sudo bluez-test-input connect 00:1F:20:3E:12:D0 Now I got...

Re: Use rPi as a Time Capsule - another method

I think I figured out the problem: the initial TimeMachine backup takes a lot of data (33 Gb in my case) because TM essentially is backing up the whole hard drive. So that's a lot of network transfer between the Pi and my MacBook. The failure ONLY happened if the Pi is connected to the network via W...

Now that the X11 session is up, it took over my entire desktop. Well, it changed the wallpaper to the Raspberry icon, with the X11 bar on the top. I did not setup the "Full Screen" mode, so I guess this is normal?

Re: microSD cards that is fast enough AND works with B+

I'm not convinced you can get a useful answer without declaring how you will use the card. For instance I only ever read from the card.

Re: microSD cards that is fast enough AND works with B+

The class of an SD card does not determine its usability. That will depend on the type of work you are doing. A class 10 card may be fast at writes but slow at reads.
