Re: [GUIDE] Communicate between iOS and Raspberry Pi using MQTT

So you have to make the Raspberry Pi publish to a topic that the iOS device is subscribed to, and then send the appropriate message like "filedone" or something like that. In iOS, you would have a function that receives messages, decodes it and does a string comparison. So if message == "filedone",...

Fantastic guide. Got any openbox design tips, you sold me on it but I have never used it before? I am willing to put the time in to grind it out but would appreciate any tips you are willing to give. Honestly, it's really up to you to design your desktop. I chose my style because I'm used to workin...

I was able to successfully install xfce following this guide. The only issue I have found is that when I install applications that require a password (ex. synaptic, gparted) they will not launch if I just click on them in the menu. The only way I can get them to launch is using the terminal using s...

Re: [GUIDE] Communicate between iOS and Raspberry Pi using MQTT

… We will be installing the Mosquitto MQTT server on the Raspberry Pi. There are two choices. You can either build the latest (but could be unstable) version of Mosquitto MQTT server from Github or download a stable release from the Mosquitto Debian repository. Out of interest, what's wrong with th...

Should be installed by default since it is an essential driver. Probably you meant like a sound manager? Depends on what desktop environment you want to use.

Why are you using a git clone to install Mosquitto.
