Re: RPi4 wake up after power failure

Keep the Argon One but ditch the board that extends the power socket, etc. to the back panel?

Re: Best example of a bad forum post?

I've just noticed this thread and have to say I think it is disgusting. People can't help being new, we were all newbies at one point. As for bad posts, there are more bad answers than bad posts, the worst being "Have you tried Google"! In my opinion the worst example of a "bad forum post" is this o...

In that case the Google AIY Voice kit download needs updating as it was with that I had the problem a few days ago. But good to hear it has been fixed.

Re: failure to connect to raspberry using VNC Viewer

I set up my Pi 3B+ with AIY kit last week. Downloaded the latest version of Raspbian, using the link on the Google AIY instruction website. Set up the SSH, wpa_supplicant, just as I had with previous versions of Raspbian on headless set ups - but it didn't work. After connecting a screen I could see...

Re: Can I use Pi-Top OS without Pi-top Hardware

I wouldn't bother with Pi-Top OS, just use Raspbian from the Rasberry Pi website. Pi-Top is just Raspbian with some extra software to run the Pi-Top hardware. Also the Pi-Top desktop software doesn't work properly, on my CEED I disabled it and just boot to the standard Raspbian desktop. The links ab...

Re: Vnc Connect to a headless Pi

I did "sudo apt update"/"sudo apt ugprade" on my Pi Zero W today, it's been running headless with VNC with no problems at all but after upgrading today it stopped working.

I had to do the solution above to get VNC working again - presumably something has updated and broken it - but its fine now.

Re: There is a big chunk of unallocated space after flashing Raspbian to SD card

In the old days, sounds like its probably changed now, one of the first things we were recommended to do after booting a newly flashed SD card was run the raspi-config program and use the option to expand the file system to use all of the card.
