Re: Printing from Pi over local network

Many thanks, Fruit. The link you supplied helped me sort it out. After doing the installs, the dialogue box for Menu/Preferences/Print Settings from the latest version of Raspbian is not exactly as the article describes but is close enough. Note the box needs to be unlocked by clicking on the Unlock...

Printing from Pi over local network

I'm trying to set up my recently purchased RPi 4 4GB with Raspbian from a NOOBS SD card to print on my Canon MG5650 printer which is connected to my network by wifi. I'm running the Pi headless and accessing via VNC Viewer on a Windows laptop. I've seen several tutorials on the web about using CUPS ...

Re: Problems with OpenFrameworks and VNC

Thanks, ghans. Your suggestion seems very similar to the that on https://github.com/patrikolausson/dispmanx_vnc which was suggested on an openFrameworks forum. I've tried both, but the keyboard does not seem to work with either of them, and the mouse (with two pointers!) freezes or pauses the displa...

Problems with OpenFrameworks and VNC

I've successfully downloaded/unpacked/ complied OF on my RPi 2 with the latest Raspian Jessie image. The OF examples I have tried run just fine as long as I have an HMDI monitor connected to the Pi. If I access the Pi via VNC (I've tried tightvnc and x11vnc) then the examples launch from a terminal ...

Re: Good C++ IDE for Debian/RPi?

@PS1981 I'm relatively new to QtCreator but I'm using it to write C++ code which drives an MCP23017 via I2C. I extracted the driving code from James Henderson's examples (strictly speaking for C) on the Robotic Electronics site. Lots of const char *filename = "/dev/i2c=0" and ioctl stuff, which I th...

Re: multiple webcam streamer

ghans,

Sorry this is off the thread topic, but your hint on searching the forum using google is brilliant! I had indeed given up ever trying to find something I'd seen previously as the search engine ... has limitations!

Many thanks.

Re: Raspberry Pi Won't Boot, Red Power Light Only

My red led prob was a little different: I'd bought 2 identical 4GB SD cards, did all the steps to write the img to one of them, and hey presto, Pi boots first time off card 1. After playing about for a while, decided to expand the partitions on the card, but first decided to make a second card, in c...

Re: My case from skpang is awesome

Can only agree with the comments on the Pang 'case'. Mine came next working day - excellent service. Just love the see-through look! After all, the Rpi's a thing of beauty, so why put in a pink/blue/black/white/etc plastic surround even if it is shaped like the pi logo? Only slight negative is that ...

Re: What's up with the web site?

Thanks for the comments, folks. I suspected that it was all those images/videos downloading/refreshing. Always thought such things being imposed on readers was poor web page design, but it seems to be v widespread. Did find a solution: 'borrowed' my wife's new laptop running W7 ! Much better .......

What's up with the web site?

Accessing the raspberrypi.org home page is becoming a right pain! From a XP/Firefox machine there is quite a wait while we read s.ytimg.com and mythic-beasts, who or whatever they are. From Racy Puppy linux/ seamonkey it is marginally better. Have not tried the Pi. And it seems that when I return to...

Re: So where's Tkinter then?

To be honest could not remember whether I'd launched startx or not, so gave it a go. Without startx, problems as above, but running startx first then my prog from inside a terminal .... worked fine! So for software using/generating graphics a desktop must be launched first. Hmmm. A windows managemen...

Re: So where's Tkinter then?

Andy: many thanks. Worked second time, because the tkinter install also needed to access the Debian archive on their site, and as the Pi was not connected to my router first time round, it failed. Second time, with the ethernet cable in place it all seemed to work, accessing an additional 4.5MB from...

So where's Tkinter then?

Have the pi running with Debian squeeze, and wanted to run some previously written python scripts. Quickly discovered tkinter was not installed. Does this mean it's not been distributed within the Debian image, or that it's there but needs to be activated? As a linux newbie (not sure I'll ever under...
