Re: Wallz - A new lightweight wallpaper slide show

I followed the steps listed and created a new cron table with the exact command shown above but I keep getting an error popup that says"Desktop Manager is not active". Could anyone help me out with this?

Re: [Help] Raspberry pi 3b+ Openbox installation

You managed to get the Arch Linux distro to boot to desktop on the Pi 3 B+?
Could you show me how you achieved that? I keep getting the lightening bolt whenever I try.
Would really appreciate it if someone, anyone, could walk me through how to get Arch Linux or Ubuntu Mate to run on the Pi 3 B+.

Re: Recycle old Laptop with Raspberry Pi 3

Are you certain that it is not just the screen/connection to the screen which is broken? Yeah... I thought of that too. I am however led to blame the motherboard cos (as I said earlier) it previously failed to boot no matter the type of OS I put on it. Windows failed to boot, Ubuntu printed a kerne...

Re: Recycle old Laptop with Raspberry Pi 3

You never know it might just work for reasons unknown to you ! :( It is with a heavy heart that I officially announce the complete death of my HP Stream 13 signature.

Re: Recycle old Laptop with Raspberry Pi 3

To add to what has already been said: For clarity, and to avoid later disappointment and frustration. There is no model of RPi that can be usefully used as a 'drop-in' replacement for the 'stock' board in your laptop if your intention is to restore its ability to run run Windows 10. Your laptop has...
