Re: Pi hole problem with connection

If you can connect to the other WiFi network then it suggests that your pi's WiFi is working. You might try renaming your your wpa_supplicant to some thing else and creating a new one just incase it had become corrupted when your pi was switched off suddenly. I thought I might have to reset the who...

Re: Pi hole problem with connection

I would suggest you shut the pi down and any other PC / device then reboot your router , let it complete the reboot then try your pi again. Rebooted pi, router and my pc same thing the wifi icon just flashes up the bars like it’s trying to connect but never does. And websites say the site can’t be ...

Ok I’ll give that a try when I get home thanks, I had rebooted the pi not the router. It’s weird though because every other device connects no problem

If you insist on sticking with NOOBS then replacing it with PINN makes sense. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=142574 so where does my storage go on the pi4? i have listed in my computer when i insert my sd card 4 unformatted USB drives, system, system0, boot and recovery...

Re: Music player

You would use Etcher or similar to create the SD as this includes the operating system as well as all the programs. This is not Raspbian but a slightly different version of Linux and the SD card would be dedicated to this task. Note: This will delete everything off that SD card. Do you know of an a...

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Only other thing I can come up with is for you to try changing the user agent identity and try and fool it into thinking you have the ‘correct’ browser loaded. IE 9 had Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0) as it’s agent string. See here for lots of examples. Of cou...

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

It’s not unusual to demand a specific browser in niche programs.

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Looks like their website is configured stupidly. It looks like they're looking for a very specific external viewer, which is ridiculous, .SVGs render fine in anything. Looks like you have to trick the site into thinking the browser is IE, and once you've done that, it checks to see if the external ...

Re: raspberry pi 4 and wine or x86 emulator

Let's try a different approach. It looks like your end goal is to be able to run "SVG viewer 3.0.exe"...right? Running this through WINE or some other emulator isn't the right way to go about it, even if the Pi could run it. If you could get it working, the performance is often very poor,...

Wine will not run on ARM machines - it’s x86 code only. Eltechs / Exagear is no longer in business and their software required a license code to run old site (possibly dead) Any x86 emulator would be so slow for Explorer that it would be horrible to use. ok so the other 2 links i posted arent optio...
