Re: Unstable driver (?) for wireless keyboard and mouse..

I can confirm the same issue. The problem occurs with different brands of wireless mouses/keyboards (Logitech and Microsoft) and different brands of usb 3 ssd (Sandisk and Toshiba) combinations. No combination has been stable, all have displayed random instances of the mouse ceasing to respond. This...

Re: Buster pepperflashplugin

Using glances it shows the command that started the processes and in my case it shows:

"libpepflashplayer.so" followed by a number of arguments

There are a number of such processes started (in my case 10 with about 15 tabs open in the browser).

Re: Running Raspbian on USB Devices : Made Easy

Yes that was the problem and the solution was as simple as deleting the existing partition and starting again with no partition. Of course, ext4 would have worked as well. It is now copying the BOOT/ROOT.

Thanks very much for your help.

Dear lmarmisa,

You were absolutely right, the problem was the syntax error (router instead of routers). I am going blind in my old age. :)

Re: Disk won't mount at boot up

OK, thanks, I'll butt out but still suspect that there is a relationship but am very willing to defer to experience. By the way the mount on the Raspberry is successful. I can write and re-read the drive, it simply does not show the pre-existing data although it does appear to mount successfully. An...

Ok, you got 5 days only. You could setup a website asking specifically for people to suggest projects that they would like done. The only cost will be the domain name registration unless you are happy with a sub-domain. You will need to pick-up how to: - set up a headless raspian on your pi. - set u...

Re: monitor size

Hello,

You should be able to connect any hdmi monitor or tv. Methinks, the small form monitors are more for people who want to make a self-contained application or system.
