Re: ArduCAM with Broadcom BCM2835 SoC

... Since RPT holds all the cards, why not letting arduCAM play out and reel it in only when necessary. Let someone else shoulder the financial risk of putting out a product that YOU are interested in doing but don't want to spend (waste) the money! Save the lawyer's fees if it dies. Only claim it'...

Re: ArduCAM with Broadcom BCM2835 SoC

RPF have spent upwards of £1M developing that software, probably much more. Seems unfair for someone to simply take it and use it on their own board without spending a single penny. I don't really have an opinion on ArduCAM at the moment, but I feel the need to reply to this. They spent all that ju...

That licensing hurts! Makes me want to sell my raspberry pi 3. RPF have spent upwards of £1M developing that software, probably much more.

Re: Universal GPIO keyboard daemon

Looks like I just needed to define the keys first and then the PULL_UP after that. It's all working now! Thank you both DavidL and mmoller2k!

Re: Universal GPIO keyboard daemon

I got everything compiled and tried to configure it for direct GPIO + ground controls, but I'm thinking I might be misunderstanding the conflig file instructions. I get this error pi@retropie ~ $ sudo /usr/local/bin/pikeyd Config file is /etc/pikeyd.conf ERROR: /etc/pikeyd.conf line 1: GPIO04 pull r...

Re: Universal GPIO keyboard daemon

Never mind. Seems to just be some errant text on your master branch. The key_matrix branch compiles fine.

I get the same error. I'm not a programmer so I might be wrong, but I think this entire file is missing from DavidL's github repo. Maybe he forgot to upload it?

Re: The Raspbian new UI thread

I hate to disagree with someone who has so much experience, and probably knows far more about UI than I ever will, but I think Simon Long is very wrong about the "menu bar". What's your problem with moving it? You can have it at the left, right, top or bottom. Oh, I have no issue with tha...

I hate to disagree with someone who has so much experience, and probably knows far more about UI than I ever will, but I think Simon Long is very wrong about the "menu bar". The only Apple menu bar that is on the top is actual menus, like file and edit. Even in the classic Mac OS years, Ap...

Re: This aint no adafruit!!!! Which screen do i have??

I'm in the same boat, and we might even have the same screen. Your post has inspired me to resume my trial and error testing. It's probably a ILI9325. Can you get a better picture and a link where you bought it?
