Official Pi 4 case - likes/dislikes

Hi I was wondering how people are finding the Official Pi 4 case?

When I leave the top off the official case, I rarely see it go above 40°C for more than a couple seconds.

With the official case top on, it still heats up to 50-68°C eventually, but very slowly, which is still a win for the shim.
Is this the Official Pi 3 case or the Official Pi 4 case?

Official Case and LCDs

Hi

I wondered if anyone out there has found an LCD screen that fits the Raspberry Pi 3/3+ official case (with the windowed top fitted)?

Re: Cheap but effective PI 4 heat sink

Yeah I remember back with the Pi 2 a 1p coin just laying on the Broadcom dramatically reduced the temp

Great in an emergency but you had to remember to let it cool before you removed it before moving the pi

Re: Auto start a script

Another option that should work (as Raspbian is based upon Debian):

# crontab -e -u username

@reboot /path/to/shell/script

Never tried it on Raspbian but can't think why it shouldn't work

Re: Auto start a script

The way to get around that is to detach the process from the rc script. Put your code into say my script.sh Then call (from your rc.local script): nohup <path-to>/my script.sh & This will run the script in the background on startup And if you need it run as another user try ... nohup su - pi -c <pa...

Re: Auto start a script

@kernelcode Putting something into /etc/rc.local adds it to the boot sequence. The word "sequence" is important, if your code gets stuck then the boot sequence cannot proceed. The same with ~/.bashrc, if you put a faulty command in here you may not be able to login. The way to get around that is to...
