Re: Steps for Configuring Mate Desktop on 4GB Raspberry Pi 4B - (Rev.7)

I just changed from the standard menu on the bar to "Brisk" and touch works with it as it should.

I don't know what's wrong with the normal menu setup, but switching to Brisk works well.

Re: Steps for Configuring Mate Desktop on 4GB Raspberry Pi 4B - (Rev.7)

Yes to both questions. Touching the screen properly moves the mouse pointer, and will even open menus... it just won't 'activate' any commands in menus. Touch properly works in all other expected ways; I can move windows, resize, minimize, close, etc. I can scroll a page with the scrollbar on the si...

Re: Steps for Configuring Mate Desktop on 4GB Raspberry Pi 4B - (Rev.7)

Call for help in figuring out why I cannot actually click anything with my touchscreen- I can open menus but not execute a function within a menu. I can select System, the menu opens. But if I attempt to tap on Shutdown... it flashes and does nothing. I would like to re-enable the missing bits so I ...

Re: Pi4B- screen randomly blacks out

I do believe I'm experiencing the same issue, except I've been using the 3.5mm jack the whole time.

But it does seem to happen primarily with one particular monitor I use... I've bookmarked that thread for future debugging. Appreciate the help! 👍🏻

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

I somehow missed posting an introduction! My name is Benjamin and I am a fairly new Pi enthusiast. I have a degree in electronics and picked up a Pi4B to use as a desktop replacement. I have been feverishly attempting to set this up to replace an aging netbook (only 2gigs of RAM; Microsoft seems int...

Re: Huge display!!

Forgive me if this isn't the issue you are experiencing, but when I first VNC'd into my Pi with a 7in screen I found everything huge, too. I discovered it is because the native resolution of my 7in screen is 1024x600. When you stretch that to a modern monitor size, everything gets huge. This is norm...

Pi4B- screen randomly blacks out

As the title says; screen will randomly black out while I'm actively using the machine. Running Raspbian. I have overclocked this Pi to run at 2.145Ghz CPU and 750Mhz GPU. This little machine is quite a beast at these settings. I noticed the blacking out issue BEFORE I overclocked, but not until AFT...

Re: Raspberry PI4 1 external HDD to each USB3.0 port without external power possible ?

Throwing my experience into the ring! A drive that has sat for months may actually pull quite a bit more juice than listed on the label. I have an external that claims it only need 5V @ 1A, but it exceeded that claim by quite a bit during spin up and reading specific areas of the drive. I believe th...

Where can I find changelogs or info on the latest updates?

Apologies for asking, but I couldn't locate a resource on this site that shows what has changed in the updates. I also am wondering if there is some sort of a schedule for updates? Like, Patch Tuesday? I'm very eager to get USB boot running on my Pi4, and I am also eager to be able to overclock furt...

Ok, I'm a n00b. I had Kodi installed previously, and attempted to follow this guide. I immediately get errors. My actual question: If I follow these directions in reverse, will that remove it? And then, if I follow the steps in revers to remove my existing Kodi... would I be able to avoid starting a...
