Re: Possible to capture mouse input on the CLI?

Sorry for not replying to this before, NYE prep and the start of 2017 put this project on hold!

I am very grateful for all your answers. Think I am going to look into ncurses as there is a Python library I can use. =)

Possible to capture mouse input on the CLI?

I've just ordered a small PiTFT touchscreen HAT for my headless RPi to do simple tasks such as connecting the RPi to a new network or start a specific program etc. To save resources I want to avoid using X Server and instead create a simple text-based GUI program using something like ncurses or newt...

Re: LIRC: mode2 continuously receiving pulses from TSOP85

I never got this to work, I gave up and just used a bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo instead. Maybe one day when I find some spare time I'll take another look but right now I have no fixes for the people... sorry!

Re: Block size & lots of small files

Hey sorry for the late reply, busy weekend. Okay so let me describe what I'm trying to achieve and why I used individual files. My program sends packets of information to a server throughout its operation. The RPi is in a remote location and is connected to the internet via a 3G dongle so its connec...

Thank you for all your replies, they were useful. I will rethink the design of the system. :)

Block size & lots of small files

I am using an 8Gb card running Raspbian Jessie with the filesystem extended using raspi-config. I have program that may create lots (~1 million) of small files (~800 bytes). Let's round that up to 1kB files which by my calculations is 1Gb for all 1 million files (1024 * 1,000,000 = 1.024Gb). One of...

Re: LIRC: mode2 continuously receiving pulses from TSOP85

That is odd as I have always had the network cable plugged in as I SSH and VNC into the pi to develop and have still seen continuous output. I didn't completely cover the receiver but I did cup my hands around it to see if that made a difference and it didn't. (I know not very scientific!!) So if it...

LIRC: mode2 continuously receiving pulses from TSOP85

I have bought an IR Receiver board based on the TSOP85 from here: http://proto-pic.co.uk/ir-receiver-breakout/ I've connected the VCC to the 3.3V pin, the OUT to pin 15 (GPIO22) and GND to the ground pin. I've install lirc, edited the /etc/modules file and that seems to be working properly, I have g...

Re: SSH with winSCP over direct ethernet connection

You are using a cross-over cable aren't you? This is not required on the Pi (and most modern equipment). The Ethernet socket is auto-sensing for the cable type and thus works with both standard and cross-over cables. Yes thank you, other posts have already stated that, can you please now help me wi...

Re: SSH with winSCP over direct ethernet connection

Okay so if i'm setting my own IP and subnet mask will i still be able to wirelessly connect to my router and have a wired connection to my pi?

If i can what sort of IP and subnet mask setting am i looking at using?!

Thanks

Re: SSH with winSCP over direct ethernet connection

Hi thanks your replies!

I think i will buy a crossover cable as it is cheaper and seems simpler. Is there much more to do than buy the crossover and plug it in?

EDIT: What type of Category cable to i need? (ie Cat5, Cat5e or Cat6 etc)

Thanks

Re: SSH with winSCP over direct ethernet connection

I don't understand what you mean by a crossover cable but i am using an Ethernet Cable (RJ45) to connect it from the Ethernet port of my laptop to the Ethernet port of my raspberry pi!

SSH with winSCP over direct ethernet connection

Hi all! I have connected my pi to the router via ethernet cable and connected to it over SSH using winSCP with the hostname/ipaddress of 192.168.1.74. This works fine! Now my router is all the way downstairs and i want it next to me so i can tinker with the GPIO pins so i connected it to my laptop d...
