....Add these lines to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

Wrong path and file...
Try:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
So I add the @xset s noblack etcetcetec

onto the bottom of the lines already written in there?

Re: Editing the autostart file from bash command line with raspbian

So I found a thing called nano that I opened with the sudo command. I added the three lines but there was still a line that says:

@xscreensaver -no-splash

Can that be left in? What does it mean?

I have a dedicated pi that just has stock prices on a monitor mounted on my wall so I can see what my money is doing everytime I walk in the room. Thank you 35 dollar computers!!

Re: How to connect a SDR to a pi3 then wirelessly access it?

I just use it mainly for the audio mainly over the HF band. So the audio output would be minimal.
Any good VNC tutorials for people who have never used it before?

How do you remotely access the raspberry pi?

Can it be done over wireless or just either net?

If something works for arm that means it works on the pi right? No. Wrong. That was a really helpful reply. It also helped me learn why ARM architecture is different.
