Re: Les caractères français ne s'affichent pas correctement

Ce sont de parfaits romans pour débutants pour quelqu'un qui apprend le français. Beaucoup d'entre eux ont été lus sur mon RPi 3b+ avec un écran tactile. Juste une remarque, certaines séries suceptibles de te plaire, déjà parce que les histoires sont y sont aussi impeccablement ficelées, le françai...

Re: How to make the multi-touch function screen work with Raspberry Pi 4B

Yes, I buy the screen from this link "https://www.waveshare.com/10.1inch-hdmi-lcd-b-with-case.htm" and connect it through the HDMI. I also connect USB cable for screen and power both of my RPi and screen, but the screen only single touch work not 10 points touch work. It's something wrong I do? PS:...

Gnome-Shell on Rpi 4?

I've tried gnome-shell on raspberry pi 3b+ and it was just too slow to be practical; likely due to lack of memory and the system going into swap. Even with everything tweaked it would just crawl. My question is: has anyone tried gnome-shell on raspberry pi 4? I'm especially interested to hear if any...

You'd need the options -c and -d for unzip to use it in a pipe. Likewise for dd, you'd need if=/dev/stdin to deal with input via the pipe. See the manual pages to be sure.

Those are processes, not threads. PeterO :oops: This is a complete guess. All I know is that my system generally uses 90-92 threads after booting (as per the 'top' command). Now it uses 102.
