Re: No desktop

All sorted! Any advice on a Javascript browser? Used PackMan to install Otter but it crashes on most sites. Firefox installed ok (using Store) but locks up the whole desktop every time its run.

Have ordered an SD card adapter.

Re: No desktop

Thanks, tried with a couple of sync's after the DD but the same.
Yes, it is a Philips 32GB USB key not a SD card
Now tried with a PNY 32GB Micro SD HC in a USB card reader but again the same.

Re: No desktop

Thanks, it is a 3 Model B+
Used Debian Disk Utility to format 32GB as FAT, marked it as bootable then used
dd bs=1M if=ro524-1875M.img of=/dev/sdb
It completed ok saying 2GB had been written
The USB was previously fine with Raspbian

Re: No desktop

Thanks, it is now giving:

Message from Desktop:
Machine startup has not completed successfully: 'The disk drive is empty'.

Will give it a try with an alternative SD card

Re: No desktop

Thanks, tried waiting and booting with a wired internet connection.
I can type into the command line, is it likely to be a display issue or similar that is stopping the desktop stage?

No desktop

I have just done a first boot and get as far as the screen below but with a message 'No keyboard present, autobooting supervisor' Previously with Raspian it is happy with the standard Microsoft mouse attached. Is there some configuration I might need to do? http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~atm26/ephemeral/2...
