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

Just a "me too" post here. I have a 3B+ booting from SD-card using an official PSU, a wired keyboard and wired mouse connected. Running Raspbian desktop. Oh, and I don't have bluetooth enabled. 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!...
