Re: I'm having more problems with new username

Trying this myself, each time I try and delete user PI it shows a process in use, kill that process and another is started!

Raspberry Pi config lists PI as default user, how do you change/remove this?

Re: Where can I buy a cheap hdmi monitor

Argos have one at £65.00, tv with hdmi (£70.00 with built in DVD) works well with a Pi as long as you don't mind the colour (it's pink/raspberry!). Staples had a DGM monitor/Television with HDMI at £60.00 the other day.

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Well two weeks after seeing veryevil's post, all the parts have arrived from china and parts more local here in the UK. Half an hour with a soldering iron and I'm typing this on my PI-top. Have to say thanks to all the posters on here for the tips on HDMI, sound etc, I don't feel such a Linux newbie...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Can someone who has one of these lapdocs please take a picture of the keyboard (so I can see the yas and their layout) and any i/o ports?

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

My Pi arrived yesterday and I was in a bit of a quandary as to which monitor to hook it up to as my main desktop is attached to the only monitor with HDMI, having seen this thread I've now ordered from http://www.oyyy.co.uk/product.php/220891/atrix-mb860-lapdock £51.97 free P&P so cheaper than Amazo...
