Re: Scratch2: problem with block help

I experience the same issue. Is the help functionality not implemented?
I hope that one of the developers also reads this forum and can indicate whether it is supposed to work or just not implemented, so that I can stop looking for it if it is not at all implemented.

Thanks

Re: Scratch 2 - Upload sprite from file

Thanks for this post and mentioning that Esc was the way out. So far I just did a hard reboot (powercycle), because nothing else worked. But what I noticed now is that the not only Esc works, but also the rest of the keyboard, at least the arrows and the Enter key. In that way I was able to import t...

Simple way to expand file system from the CLI?

raspi-config can expand the file system. When duplicating SD cards, I use piclone to copy the image and then shrink the image to the minimum (using gparted) so that copying to 30 SD cards for 30 Raspberry Pi's will be faster (at least I think it is). Thereafter I need to use raspi-config on all of t...

Re: I could program an Arduino Nano from RPi - but not any l

Hmm, this is embarrassing. Actually, the Arduino Nano is connected to a powered USB hub, which is then connected to the RPi. I had earlier looked whether it made a difference. And then it did not. However now that I use 1.8.0, I tested again with the Arduino Nano directly connected to the RPi, and, ...

Re: I could program an Arduino Nano from RPi - but not any l

OK, I have used a clean install of the latest Raspian (2016-11-25) and then installed Arduino 1.8.0 in the way scruss suggested. The install worked, apart from some files that were intended to be touched but did not exist. However these were some icon files, so I expect there is nothing essential th...

Suggesting extensions to SD Card Copier

(I hope this is the right place to post this topic. If not, please let me know.) I have used the SD Card Copier to duplicate a working card for all of the RPis I use in the classroom. It is great! However I have up to 30 workplaces with 30 RPis and that means copying 30 SD cards. This takes a lot of...

Re: I could program an Arduino Nano from RPi - but not any l

Thanks for your fast reply and for trying it out. I found the verbose option in the Arduino preferences. When switching it on, a small sketch like Blink did upload without problems, while when verbose is not on then it fails with the error in my original post.This is very consistent and reproducible...

I could program an Arduino Nano from RPi - but not any longe

I have been successfully programming Arduino Nano from RPi up to and including Raspian release 2016-03-18. However starting from Raspian release 2016-05-10 it still wants to program the genuine Arduino Nano, however the Chinese clones with CH340G chip fail to be programmed. This problem is reported ...
