Re: Raspberry Pi 4 - screen rotation

Figured it out. This file: /etc/xdg/autostart/arandr-autostart.desktop was overriding my settings in /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart. Commented out the arandr-autostart.desktop file and my screen now rotates on startup.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 - screen rotation

Looking for a way to rotate the display from command line/programmatically as well. I've also tried adding the following to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart @xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate right However, this doesn't seem to have any effect. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.

Re: A couple of new Pi3B+ Not booting - 3V3 not working. Looking for further information/support.

If you're asking me, no, nothing ever was connected to GPIO. By the time the Pi is powered up for the first time, it's installed in a plastic case, so there's zero chance any metal may have come in contact with the GPIO pins when the Pi is powered on.

Re: A couple of new Pi3B+ Not booting - 3V3 not working. Looking for further information/support.

Nothing plugged into the GPIO. No chance of shorting the GPIO pins as the Pi's are placed in a plastic case before ever powering them up. We went through another 25 Pis day and had 0 failures. I don't know if we hit a bad batch yesterday or what? The failed Pis we saw yesterday weren't initially DOA...

Re: A couple of new Pi3B+ Not booting - 3V3 not working. Looking for further information/support.

3v3 issue confirmed!! There is no voltage on the 3v3 pin on our dead Pi's (3b+ from Arrow). Red light is on, and there IS voltage on the 5v pin. We currently have 17 failed Pis and still have about 150 to check. I will update again once we've checked all of our in-stock Pis. Also just a note: these ...

Re: A couple of new Pi3B+ Not booting - 3V3 not working. Looking for further information/support.

I'm wondering if I'm seeing this issue as well. Similar to OP, we use Rpis in our products as well.Typically assemble 10-20 per day and have been using Pi for about 2 months now and have never had a dead pi in our 3+ year history of using Pi's. I just recently bought a new batch of 200 3b+ from Arro...

Date/time not updating with Raspbian Stretch

I'm seeing issues where the date/time is not automatically updating on Raspbian Stretch. The Pi is connected to the internet, but the datetime isn't updating. NTP is not installed, and systemd-timesyncd is running. Could the Pi be having trouble connecting to the specific time servers? Maybe a DNS i...

Re: Slideshow with extra info on top

If you uncheck the "Use hi-res photos" option, it will pull the medium res photo from flickr (1024px wide/high). These are maybe 500kb each. If you have it changing the picture every 30 seconds you'll see somewhere near 3.5GB per day.

Re: Slideshow with extra info on top

No problem. It's setup to keep you logged in for 1 year (unless you specifically log out). I've been using the Chromium browser and rebooted several times over a few days and it hasn't asked me to login again. So theoretically you'd have to login once a year.

Ok, you now should have the options to disable the time from showing up, and also disable that tab that shows the info about the picture.
