Re: VNC remote desktop via web browser

Hi Dave,
I didnt know how to post a private message.
The tightvnc still doesnt work for scratch even if you run a vnc client on the laptop??
Any ideas? Is there a not tight or full on version of vnc that might work?
Thanks,
pete

Motors for robotics

At Picademy we used motors on the robotics workshop on the last day with Clive.
Would anybody know what gearing they might have been?
I think I tracked down the kind of motors we used but I'm not sure which to order.

Thanks for any help,

Re: VNC remote desktop via web browser

I got vnc to work on my laptop. However, mine craft and scratch do not display through the connection. Python and sonic pi work fine. Any ideas why?

Re: VNC remote desktop via web browser

I tried but it wont let me in.
I've now rebuilt a card for NOOBS and am back in the Pi.
Just out of interest has anyone got this VNC type of connection working?

Re: VNC remote desktop via web browser

I followed these steps but after I wrote the shell script and then rebooted the pi it is now asking for a password? Any ideas on what this might be? I have used my pi so far with no passwords to write lots of python etc. How can I get back into the Pi?
