Re: Why would it not keep a static IP?

This sounds bad: "To connect to Pi, install iTunes." It's not quite as bad as it sounds. The open source Linux version of Bounjour (aka zero config) is called avahi. Nobody has bothered to port avahi to windows since Bonjour is easily obtained and free to install use. The easiest way to get Bounjou...

Re: Why would it not keep a static IP?

A little follow up about connecting Pi with PC with a single Ethernet wire. No DHCP, no static IP. It would work OOTB as "raspberrypi.local". So we could ping raspberrypi.local , or putty raspberrypi.local . This is due to the multicast DNS service, it would resolve the name to the link local addre...

Re: Permissions to logout/reboot (non pi user)

The new pishutdown will be available with an apt update in the not too distant future. I believe the current version of pishutdown has re-introduced an old bug. The line: if (!strcmp (data, "exit")) system ("pkill lxsession"); should read if (!strcmp (data, "exit")) system ("kill _LXSESSION_PID"); ...

Re: Asking for wong password

Let's take gparted as an example. From MY account I installed gparted from the cli (sudo apt-get install gparted) using MY password, and it appears in under "Preferences" in the menu.
