Re: Pi4: Official Display + 2 HDMI Monitors

Wow, I'd considered this wrapped up with the "No, it's not possible" on Thursday. Then I check back in today and see this interesting, but totally over my head, discussion :D . Being unable to contribute anything to the discussion I'll move the idea back into my mental "it may happen at some point" ...

Re: Pi4: Official Display + 2 HDMI Monitors

I'm not clear if you're wanting to use the touchscreen effectively as a trackpad for the mouse pointer on the main displays, or actually put an image on the touchscreen. It was the latter - in my case to see a browser or console on the touch screen, in the installation example I gave, to see a keyb...

Re: Pi4: Official Display + 2 HDMI Monitors

Sorry, that video may have been misleading, I linked to it since I thought it showed multiple frame buffers in use, which I thought was the issue preventing use of the HDMI and touch screen originally. To clarify, I have 2 monitors attached to my PC on HDMI input 1 on each monitor. I have one Pi4 co...

Pi4: Official Display + 2 HDMI Monitors

TLDR; Can I have a Pi 4 4GB with two hdmi monitors attached and also an official touch screen display working as a display and an input device? I have a Pi 4 4GB attached to 2 HDMI monitors. These monitors are shared with my work PC. I have Node Red running on the Pi for home automation things and c...

Re: Connect Bluetooth Keyboard at boot

Apparently according to Nexdock's site, "the latest version of Raspbian does not support autoreconnect after reboot". I'm wondering if there is a way I can script it out at bootup or use a cronjob every minute to attempt a reconnect. Cheers for that clonmac. Do you happen to have a link to that quo...

Re: Passwords in configuration files

Thanks everyone for the discussion. From reading the SQL docs bobstro linked to it looks to me that there are the following options Use -ppassword as in the example - but this exposes the command line to ps Store the password in an option file, that will live in /root - so it is effectively the "Lin...

Re: Passwords in configuration files

It's always worth researching what any online article is telling you to do, much less accept a site called "Dude My Dad's a Geek" as authoritative. Exactly, that's why I asked the question here before continuing :D I have a distinct dislike for instructions that tell you "just do this" and will try...

Passwords in configuration files

Hi, This is a general Linux question, but TBH I have generally found these forums are one of the most helpful places online, so hope no one will mind me asking this here. I've been looking at a tutorial explaining how to back up my Owncloud installation on one of my Pi's (http://www.dudemydadsageek....

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

Cheers for that,

I was just setting a pair of user accounts up for two siblings and failing to get Minecraft to start.
Adding them both to the video and audio groups seems to have fixed it :)

Re: Raspbmc Release Candidate

Superb work on Raspbmc. The RC2 image installed perfectly for me, but... (you knew that was coming right ;)) I bought a Rii wireless keyboard to use with the pi and, once I realised the power supply I was using behind the TV was not supplying the power I needed to run the keyboard, unlike the one on...
