Print to a Polaroid Zip

I have a project whereby I'd like to print to a Polaroid Zip printer. If you haven't heard of one of those, it's a small, portable wireless printer that you can print to via bluetooth. There was a previous version called the Polaroid PoGo which someone managed to print to for a similar project. They...

Pi3D over vnc

I recently set up Pi3D on my Pi (a raspberry pi 2) and everything works fine when I hook it up to a screen via HDMI - I can run the demos and they behave as I would expect from the names. I usually access the Pi via vnc however, and when I connect in this method, I don't see any output from the prog...

Java 3D on RPi2

I have a Java 3D project that I have previously run on an original Raspberry Pi Model B which I'm now trying to get running on the Pi2. I've managed to find 'libjava3d-java' and 'libjava3d-jni' packages that the Pi2 running Raspbian was happy to install, but I can't get my program to run as I get th...

Java 3D can only render via VNC

I have an application that uses Java 3D that I have been configuring on a Pi that has no monitor on it that I have connected to my network and have been accessing via VNC. I now have the application set up and running successfully in this way so I hooked the Pi up to a monitor as I ultimately want t...

Re: Segmentation fault with Java 3D

From stack overflow I have learned that the version of the native code I'm using is wrong - debian armhf requires armv7 or higher, and the Pi is armv6. There is a suitable package available in the Raspbian package repo though so I have that.

Next battle - it wants GLX version 1.3

Re: Segmentation fault with Java 3D

I tried giving the GPU 128MB - much more than that and there wasn't enough left to run the OS - but it still gave me the same error

Re: Segmentation fault with Java 3D

I've just tried with open JDK 7 (1.7.0_25, 'Iced Tea' 2.3.10)
I get a slightly different error; 'fatal error: caught unhandled signal 4'
It's effectively the same; it crashes saying there was an error in native code
This happens with each of the three native code libraries I've mentioned above.

Re: Segmentation fault with Java 3D

I'm using a Java runtime that now ships with the Raspbian operating system.
I saw this post:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/4920
which suggests that oracle now make a proper ARM compatible JDK.
I haven't tried a JDK from another vendor though, so I might give that a try next.

Re: Segmentation fault with Java 3D

I have now tried compiling a very simple program, from this page: http://www.java3d.org/starting.html It's about as basic as you can get with Java 3D and it still gives me a segmentation fault. I also tried pulling different versions of the native ARM library; I've taken them from debian dfsg-8 and ...

Segmentation fault with Java 3D

I have a project written in Java using Java 3D that I'm trying to get running on my Pi - one of the older model B boards with 256MB of RAM. I currently have 32MB allocated to the GPU and the rest to the OS. I've downloaded the latest version of Raspbian that has Oracle Java 1.7.0_40-b43 pre installe...

Re: usb WiFi woes

Well, the cable I had turned out to be using the standard cable colourings but not for the standard functions, so I actually ended up cutting a lot more than I intended. I took a USB extension cable, have the data wires attached to the plug at the other end, the +5v line connected straight to a benc...

Re: Working keyboard/touchpad combi

I have a Rii that I'm using with my Pi. It's one of the older ones that comes with a 2.4GHz adapter, i.e. it doesn't use bluetooth like the newer ones seem to. I get mixed results with it to be honest; the same as you there is a lot of erratic behaviour, presumably caused by interference. Sometimes ...

Re: usb WiFi woes

I tried butchering a USB cable last night so that only the data lines went into the Pi, and the power lines went into a bench supply, but then the Pi says it can't enumerate the device - apparently it can tell if the power rails aren't connected, and apparently it cares for some reason. I think I'll...

Re: usb WiFi woes

How did you get the power in directly from a power supply and also plug it into the Pi, do you have a deal-ended cable?

usb WiFi woes

Hello Raspberry Pi forum goers, I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I have a TP-Link TL-WN821N usb wireless adapter. It is listed as verified working on the element 14 website, but I can't get it to work for me! I have followed the guide here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Peripherals#Wireless:_TP...
