Re: Raspbian Buster - How to add desktop?

Does that mean it doesn't work and won't work "as we removed it in wheezy"? It's April 1st. or?

Raspbian Buster - How to add desktop?

Hy!

Installed Buster with GUI and found the Desktop Pager for the Task Bar, but there is only one Desktop. I clicked every available menu/desktop to find the option to add another Desktop (or 2-3), but could not find it.

Any help on how to add Desktops in Buster? :-)

Re: Raspbian (latest) - tigerVNC not working?

PS: I tried the built-in tightVNC server, but that requires tightVNC viewer and is not compatible to tigerVNC I have installed on all my machines. :-(

So: Any way to get tigerVNC server to work on raspbian?

Re: Making sense of ADS-B checksums & bitfields

I had a look, the PLUS version has the 1090 MHz filter. I think I would go without the filter, as the receiver can be used in different directions, so I start probably with a broad-range receiver. Some cell phone stuff and the "little big city" close by here, too... How do you connect your handcraft...

Re: Enabling I2C on Raspberry Pi

Check with a voltmeter that you have 3.3 and 5 V on your breadboard where the T-cobbler promises to provide them. Otherwise you did it wrong at some point and potentially fried your electronics.

...which is virtually impossible, as the GPIOs are not mirror-symmetric ;-)

Check were you have the 3.3 and 5 V on your cobbler and where they should be.
