Re: old serial tablet, WACOM ArtZ II ?

I published my code on gitlab https://gitlab.com/DarkElvenAngel/serial-mouse I don't know it might be useful to you. This was how I finally managed to get my Kidz mouse working. Thank you for that! It is good that at least someone got some serial device working with a current X11 device. My tablet ...

Re: pi inception or just not cool?

It's late but I think you need a few more keyboards plugged in there!

I got a chuckle from it then the thought of adding more keyboards popped to mind. Add a spinning top and the illusion is complete.

I'm sure that they are in first run state however so they will do all the first run things, that would include asking if you ...

My alternative is that I don't use the the RPi desktop to begin with. Install the RPi OS lite version then a core like lxqt-core. A number of the main desktops have a stripped down minimal install.

Re: Status LEDs to GPIO header

Very helpful, but maybe not dumbed down enough for me. Sorry. I have put together a pic that shows what I *think* it would be wired up as. The only thing I am not sure is which wires go to where on the NPN 2N2222. To be honest, I don't even know if this is correct in any way. It looks right to me.

Re: Status LEDs to GPIO header

The MAX323 chip will put 5V on the Pi's GPIOs which will damage the Pi. You should use a MAX3232 instead which will work at the correct 3.3V levels. Good catch! Now to fix your led problem it's really should be easy you don't need anything complex. Have you tried to just hook an LEDs up to GPIO 14 ...

Sorry, I should have been specific. I have a serial interface (RS232) connected to the TX and RX pins on the Pi. Wanted to get those connected up to LEDs. I had a sense that was what you were after. So are you using the serial on the GPIO header or a USB to Serial? And where are you hoping to get t...

I haven't tried the argon one scripts. I do know my project will run on Ubuntu it's the installer that no one has confirmed. Everything is in place so it should.
