Re: STICKY: Bluetooth not working after update - need info

For those who opt going into the USB BT dongle route, after testing several dongles cheap and expensive ones I recommend the Plugable USB-BT4LE which is fairly cheap and can be easily found at amazon stores(US and Canada).BTW, th...

Re: STICKY: Bluetooth not working after update - need info

Wifi/BT module still buggy on Rpi 4 using latest Raspbian Buster. I have had issues with both, Wifi connetions at 5Ghz and some random and annoying BT audio hiccups. I have been tweaking and changing parameters for days. Finally gave up and uninstalled Rpi 4b's Wifi/BT module and purchased some expe...

Re: Need some help using a compatible webcam running Raspbian on Rpi 4

Solved. GUVCView did the trick without having to do anything, right out of the box for latest Raspbian OS. Amazing. I was going almost nuts trying to get my Celestron microscope to work with Fswebcam using my custom settings. GUVCView has a GUI interface with a live view mode that allows me to captu...

Re: Need some help using a compatible webcam running Raspbian on Rpi 4

Wow, manual calibration is a pain using fswebcam. I got it working already for Still images at 1920x1080. I have to manually set brightness too. Also, Have to figure out some other settings as Focal Length, Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO. Will install it on my MacOS to steal its configuration setti...

Need some help using a compatible webcam running Raspbian on Rpi 4

I just got my cool microscope from Celestron, In Essence this is just a glorified usb webcam with good optics and a large sensor. Current Raspbian Buster detects it right away. However, I want to be able to use any Linux Webcam software so I can do some micro-soldering using my 65 inch OLED Sony TV ...

Re: How do I remove Remove Unnecessary Packages and Dependencies for Vivaldi

You (or an install script that you ran) probably created a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ with those entries in, or they have been added to the /etc/apt/sources.list file. Remove those entries or the whole file if they are the only entries in it, or comment them out with a # in front. Then you sh...

Re: Bugs, Bugs, Bugs everywhere. Need Guidance here.

No bug list.... no guidance..... Sorry for the late reply, I was able to figure them out by myself with the sole exception of bluetooth. My bluetooth devices kept disconnecting after 5 minutes, I was able to fix it by installing blueman bluetooth manager and pulseaudio and pavucontrol modules. My b...

How do I remove Remove Unnecessary Packages and Dependencies for Vivaldi

Following an article, I installed Vivaldi browser just to realize it's broken and buggy. I am using latest Raspbian buster on Rpi 4 and already removed vivaldi browser via preferences, add/remove programs. However, these pesky entries remain and show up everytime I try to do a system update(sudo apt...

Re: Which SSD to buy for raspberry pi?

Not sure why you'd want to mess with adapter and SSD when you can pick up a 128 GB USB 3.1 stick for about $20. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-MUF-64AB-AM-Plus-64GB/dp/B07D7PDLXC Review for 256 GB model says: Very small drive. Read speeds close to advertised. I got sequential reads on the 256GB dri...

Where would lsusb show that? Is that in the Product Id like this: idProduct 0x0578 JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge USB3.0 has a maximum bus speed of 5Gb/s on the Pi 4B, which gives a maximum data transfer rate of 4Gb/s.
