Re: Removing LCD Panel

Thanks for the reply. That thread is interesting, but doesn't have any actual info on buying or replacing the raw LCD module just suggests I sell my working parts off. My main issue is that I can't figure out how to get the metal casing off without destroying everything inside and cracking the LCD p...

Removing LCD Panel

I’m working on a projector project that requires a bare LCD panel (no backlight). I recently purchased the official 7” Raspberry Pi Display, thinking I could simply remove the LCD panel. But, as many of you probably guessed, I cracked the glass from the LCD panel in the process of trying to remove t...

Re: Issue with serial communication via GPIO (RPi and RockBl

That did it. For anyone else with the issue, just set the flow control to off, before the readBinaryMessage() function in the iridium.js node module.

Re: Issue with serial communication via GPIO (RPi and RockBl

I did notice this tip from Rock7, which may be related and will try tonight. If you are using the SBDRT command, and the modem appears to 'hang' when you issue the command, it is probably due to flow control configuration. The default state for the RockBLOCK and RockBLOCK+ units has flow control tur...

Re: Issue with serial communication via GPIO (RPi and RockBl

I'm assuming one is for reading binary and other other is for plain text. However, I'm not well versed in AT commands or serial communication. I did noticed in the node.js library it seems one function readBinaryMessage uses AT+SBDRB and another function readMessage uses AT+SBDRT. Neither commands w...

Issue with serial communication via GPIO (RPi and RockBlock)

I'm trying to integrate the RockBlock Iridium modem with my Raspberry PI. I’m having an issue reading messages off the serial device with the SBD node.js library provided by Rock7 (http://www.veri.fi/iridiumsbd.tar.gz). It seems to work fine when using the USB to UART cable, however when wiring dire...

Re: External USB Hard Disk

I don't think it's the USB hub. I get the same issues with the hard disk connectivity regardless of whether it's plugged in to the powered usb hub or directly into the pi.

Also I'm using a Belkin 4-port desktop hub (F4U040). Listed as "working" here: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals

External USB Hard Disk

Im having issues with keeping an external USB hard disk mounted. Got my pi, started playing and decided to go out and buy a 3TB external HD to connect to my pi. The hard drive is self powered and I'm connecting that to a powered USB hub and then into one of the pi's USB ports. Using the pi, I create...

Re: Torrent

http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/ Have you tried rTorrent? Found it runs a little nicer on the pi then the transmission daemon does. Also, I've tried a number of BT clients and really like using libtorrent directly. Using the python bindings, it's very easy to setup simple torrent seed/leech. Requires ...

I'm having an issue with my 3TB external hard drive disconnecting from the pi when not in use. Here's the scenario. Everything works fine, I can: - Turn on my pi and mount the external hard drive using the 'mount' command. - Download files to the hard drive with no issues. - Watch videos off the har...

Re: View Image without XServer

I should note that `fbi` has been replaced by `fim` which seems to be an updated version of `fbi`. http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man1/fim.1.html I've found this works over SSH / external scripts. So problem (almost) solved. I'm looking for a way to boot my Raspberry into CLI (not loading...

Re: View Image without XServer

Hey that works pretty well. Although, doesn't suit my need exactly, as I can't seem to run it from a SSH console or from a script in node.js. Only from the pi console itself. I get the error: Error: Command failed: using "DejaVu Sans Mono-16", pixelsize=16.67 file=/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejav...

Re: initctl: command not found

Sorry that's my Ubuntu bleeding through.. To be clear, I'm trying to create an upstart script in

Code: Select all

/etc/init/
. In Ubuntu I would use

Code: Select all

initctl
to start / stop the script.

View Image without XServer

Hi,

Im struggling with this problem. I'd like to boot my Pi into the command line, (no startx). How can I simply open and display an image on the screen from the command line. Like I can display a video using omxplayer without, the GUI / XServer running.
