Re: Longest Raspberry Pi uptime

Pi 2B was " up 354 days, 21:35 " until the stupid national power outage and now I'm back to day ZERO!! I just wanted to make it past one year of uptime... is that too much to ask? (I'm looking up and waving my fist at the sky BTW) Still, up to date kernel. I might upgrade to Buster now, but I'll hav...

Re: Index.php doesn't auto launch with RPI/Apache

DocumentRoot should point to a directory and not a file, so you should probably put it back to what it was (or another directory). And then add a "DirectoryIndex" line which tells it to look first for "index.html" and if that's not found, use "index.php": DocumentRoot /var/www/html DirectoryIndex in...

Re: After last updates RPI 3+ hangs on shurdown/reboot if bluetooth off

I only noticed the problem yesterday; the first time I shutdown, it hung with just the desktop wallpaper s...

Re: Get rid of rounded corners on windows?

Not tried this myself, but you could edit (take a backup copy first) this file:

Code: Select all

~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml
...and change the line <roundCorners> to have the value "no" rather than "yes". You might need to logout/in again to see the changes. Or it might not work at all! :D

Font changes with PIXEL desktop

Since upgrading to "Pixel", I notice that some fonts have changed; the terminal says it's using "Monospace 10" as before, but it has changed. Manually selecting DejaVu Sans Mono appears visually to revert it. There's also been a change to the default "Sans serif" font... I think! It doesn't look the...

Re: How to open Epiphany (Web) browser incognito from CLI?

The man page isn't much use is it? I found the answer by opening an incognito window and then using ps -aux in a terminal to see the command used to launch it.

So the answer is... (drum-roll....)

Code: Select all

epiphany-browser --incognito-mode --profile ~/.config/epiphany
Hope that helps! :D

Re: Permissions to logout/reboot (non pi user)

1. Whilst I believe removing sudo from the command is correct, perhaps it should check permissions first and perhaps ask for a password or state that the user is not permitted if that was the case, and... It should only allow a sudo account to shutdown the system. That is the normal configuration. ...

No. My user is in the sudo group so shouldn't (IMHO) need it.

If that's the work-around for this bug, then I guess that's what I'll have to do. But I do consider requiring non-passworded sudoer privileges just to log out, a bug!

Permissions to logout/reboot (non pi user)

I've added a new user and added them to the groups "adm sudo audio video". But when I log in as this user (via the Raspbian desktop), I can't log out or reboot. If I run lxde-pi-shutdown-helper from a terminal, it asks for my password. So presumably, by default, I can't even log out... which is odd!...
