Re: uninstalling software and recovering memory

OK, I ran a gphoto2 command that used to work, and not it does not. I also ran the Add/Remove software from the Debian Desktop. I queried gphoto2, saw three packages come up, and removed them.

Didn't get back much if any room on SD card though.

Before I updated and upgraded my Debian OS on my Pi 4B, I had a shared folder on my PC, which I could mount to my Pi. After I tried the mount again and it did not work.

Re: help with disappearing serial port

I ran the command:

udevadm info -a -p /sys/class/tty/ttyACM1 | less

and it said no such device,

I ran:

udevadm info -a -p /sys/class/tty/ttyACM0 | less

and it gave me a long report. Why has ACM1 disappeared? This was run after a fresh reboot.

help with disappearing serial port

Every once in a while, my Raspberry Pi 4B when running Arduino IDE will lose the port the board is connected to. I usually reboot and the correct serial port appears in the Arduino IDE. for example, the board is always attached to the /dev/ttyACM1. When I get into trouble the IDE does not 'see' any ...

I would really like to not have to switch keyboards and mouse when I switch between my PC and my Pi. I have both wired (PC) and wireless (Pi) keyboard and mouse.

Any tricks I should know about? How can I get another wireless adaptor that I use with Pi to go into PC?

Pi Zero W which OS?

I recently purchased a Pi Zero W, and set it up with a full blown raspbian install. I think this was a mistake as it is dreadfully slow.

Upon running setup again, which version should I choose. I REALLY don't want just the shell for an interface.

Thanks,
