Re: Install Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers on Raspberry

@ discozone I plan to have a go at getting Eclipse up an running on my pi too! So I'll certainly let you know if I get anywhere. But to be honest, it's not the end of the world not to have Eclipse. Legendary programmer and author of the 'Head First' series Kathy Sierra exclusively uses a text editor...

Re: Install Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers on Raspberry

"Java as a language has no reason to exist" I'm afraid the majority of the population disagree with you, There are surveys on this: http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html http://blog.codeeval.com/codeevalblog/2015 http://spectrum.ieee.org/computing/software/top-10-programmi...

Douglas6, I may well be wrong. In general having some random stranger on the net assure me that I am wrong does not actually assure me of anything. Some supporting argument or facts might sway me.

Re: Blank Screen wanted!

You could use xlock.

You'll need two scripts:
lock.sh containing the following:
xlock -nolock -mode blank

unlock.sh containing the follwoing:
#keep the screen blank for 5 seconds
sleep 5
pkill xlock

Now add both lock.sh and unlock.sh to your start-up scripts!

Re: Cannot upgrade RPi to JDK 1.8

You can edit .bashrc in your home directory. Add two lines:

alias java=/path/to/your/java/binary
alias javac=/path/to/your/javac/binary

Is there a good streaming media service in the uk?

Hi, I have a pi2 with Kodi installed. I'd like to have a streaming media service available. I have a few questions: #1 I've heard that Netflix will basically only work by using the 'PlayOn' service. Unfortunately, PlayOn is not available to people in the UK. Is there any way around this? For example...
