Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20

There are 3 versions of Buster: Yes, so much is perfectly obvious from the website, but once again you don't actually address the question. I am sure many others would share my view that Java is essential these days, not just recommended, and should be included in the Desktop release, as it was wit...

I have a desktop icon in /home/pi/desktop that runs an executable script In order to run this without being prompted whether I really want to run it, I can set the "Don't ask options on launch executable file" preference in File Manager.

Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20

I have now tried the full release and that does include Java.

So the question becomes why has java been removed from the desktop only release? I am sure it was included with the Stretch eqivalent.

Re: Raspbian 'Buster' 2019-06-20

Is java installed with "Raspian Buster with Desktop"?

I am sure it was in previous (i.e Stretch) desktop only releases but "java -version" shows no java is installed.

[Solved] Re: CAn no longer ping by hostname

YES, ITS FIXED :):):)

Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.195) (WIn 10 Home 64 bit)

Ping still defaults to ipv6 but now works with hostname.
Using bit -4 and -6 switches to force ipv4 or ipv6 also works.

SSH (PuTTY) also works without having to specify ipv4.

Re: root crontab not running all commands

Actually, that helped a lot, thank you.

I should have tried before posting, but the simple addition of a line to the script to set an appropriate PATH solved the problem.

I guess the original failure was also down to the path not being set.

Just revisited this issue. What I really wanted to do was use PuTTY on the PC with .local names. The problem with ping sent me ff track, despite the hint of using the -4 option to force IPv4. Simples! Just set the PuTTY Connection to IPv4 instead of Auto and it works! Another question might be why d...
