Raspbian Jessie Image

Hey Folks - Is there a pre-built Jessie image for the Pi anywhere yet? Spent a few minutes hunting around on Google and was unable to locate one. If there isn't already an image somewhere - is there a list of packages somewhere you need to install from the Raspbian repo to optimize things for the Ra...

Re: Getting overscan settings right

I believe it is NTSC - but I am not 100% on that. How can I figure it out? It is just an old westinghouse device.

Getting overscan settings right

OK so I haven't updated my RPI since August. Today I went ahead and installed all the updates in the Raspbian repo and now I am having major overscan issues. Previously my RPI simply had evenly spaced black bars around all 4 sides of the image on my TV. Now however by default there is a giant black ...

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

Looks like the xbmc packages in Debian testing are foobared at this current point - one of the risks we run using it for a base.

Try again in a few days, these things normally sort themselves out (also would be worth reporting to the Raspbian people - they maintain the main repo).

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

The .bod installers are not prepared for ARMHF hardware (like the Pi). Install the application via synaptic or via the command line with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install xbmc

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

Very good - if you find anything confusing in the docs be sure to drop by #bodhilinux on freenode or make a post over on the Bodhi user forums - we have a very strong/active community that knows even more than myself about some things :)

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

@Jolly -

You really should read through some of the Bodhi docs - it covers both things you want (setting up screen saver and a CPU monitor gadget). The CPU gadget is called simply "cpu" in the package manager - once you install it load the module and add it to your desktop or shelf.

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

If you want things to be VERY unsafe with no password - edit the /etc/sudoers file - I believe I just commented out the line that enables this.

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

What do you mean by "user involvement"?

The Bodhi for Pi image is provide in the same form as most ARM images - in .img form to easily be written to a SD card.

Re: Bodhi Linux worth a try?

Our ARMHF build is built right on top of Raspbian - meaning the core is just as quick.

The E17 desktop is just as light (but better looking) than LXDE. Give it a try.

Re: OMXPlayer Controls

It's really odd that LXDE doesn't support the Terminal=true option. One of you LXDE users should really go file a bug report about that ;)

I was unaware those key controls only function when OMXPlayer is launched via a CLI.

Here is my solution -> http://jeffhoogland.blogspot.com/2012/0 ... a-gui.html

Re: OMXPlayer Controls

I'm using a version compiled from GIT yesterday and none of those commands are working when I launch omxplayer with:

omxplayer -o hdmi videofile.mp4

Do I need to do something special for the keys to work?

OMXPlayer Controls

Am I correct in assuming OMXPlayer currently has zero support for play/pause/exit while it is playing a media file?

If I am incorrect in this assumption please enlightenment me on how I can go about doing this :)
