Re: How to get GUI to show

There's something wrong in you app. Once you get it working in a terminal window with 'java -jar / path to the jar file / program name .jar', you can make it and other jar files launch with a double click this way: To set association for java .jar files so you can double click on it and launch, do t...

Re: Worried with power outages and abrupt power loss

Perhaps a 'shutdown' script ("shutdown now" or such) that runs when a pair of GPIO pins are closed?
Still, you would need to remove all power and apply again to restart.

Solved, sort of Re: Path= ignored if destop file is in autostart

After scouring the 'net for a solution, I came upon a resolution that actually fits my need better. From SO posters Benny Neugebauer and dusan in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/320542/how-to-get-the-path-of-a-running-jar-file/320595#320595 I modified the suggestion slightly and put it in a meth...

Re: Path= ignored if destop file is in autostart

Path= is validated if the file is launched from the desktop. Not when launched from /.config/autostart.
This is the same if Working Directory is set from the Properties of the .desktop file on the desktop.

Path= ignored if destop file is in autostart

I have a java app that needs to load a configuration file. The app and the file are in a specific folder under the /home/user/ folder. If I create a .desktop file (shortcut) and include the line 'Path=xxxx', the app starts correctly when I launch it from the desktop. But if the .desktop ( a copy) is...

to auto start apps in raspbian Stretch you need a folder in /home/[user]/.config (whatever your user name is) named autostart. In this folder you create text files named [filename].desktop (any filename will do) and put the following in it: [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Exec= the name and path to...

Re: rivendell radio automation

It turns out the SD card I was using was the problem getting audio to work on Rivendell. The OS was so slow... that made me think I'd seen this before. I made a new card (sandisk) and now everything is working.

I just downloaded the latest Jessie build 2017-03-02, and it won't unzip. Says I need an additional 734 PB (yes, PetaBytes) of disk space.

Main Menu editor

After doing an update/upgrade, the Main Menu Editor no longer works. Any new items don't show up, changes to existing entries don't change. Is there a way to re-install the editor (alacarte)?
