AirPlay videos WITHOUT XBMC?

I'm looking for a way to AirPlay video from my iOS devices to the Raspberry Pi without a full install of XBMC. The AirPlay feature works great in the various XBMC distros and in RasPlex, but I'm hoping to install the airplay function all by itself and run it either from the command line or from with...

Re: Running a graphical app from the command line, on compos

Well, I don't think the "screen" setting in the prefs file has any effect on this issue. I think it only effects the emulated screen of the emulated Mac. I've had an email from the creator of the video, which gave me some new things to try. As far as I can tell, it should be using SDL instead of X11...

Re: Running a graphical app from the command line, on compos

Just looking at the documentation, there seems to be a screen option in the preferences file which might allow you to avoid using X11. Is that option correctly set? [I have no experience of using this app, just trying to find a way forward for you.] Good catch, I'm experimenting with that now. Than...

Re: Running a graphical app from the command line, on compos

Update: The issue persists on HDMI, so it doesn't have anything to do with the composite video specifically.

Running a graphical app from the command line, on composite

Hi there I've installed BasiliskII, a 68k Mac emulator, on my Pi. Here's a video example of it being run on a Pi (not me). https://vimeo.com/62033644 I can run it just fine from within X, but the added bloat of Xorg it's not very usable. The guy in the video is clearly launching it from the command ...

Re: GCW Zero: A linux gaming handheld

I think you need to go check out the Kickstarter page. Backers at $130 or above will get a console, but the final retail price is not yet known. The console will not be sold through retailers like GameStop, or at least there are no plans for that yet. It's likely going to be sold exclusively through...

GCW Zero: A linux gaming handheld

I thought the Raspberry Pi community might be interested in this project. I've been testing a prototype for a while and I'm pretty impressed with it, particularly for emulation. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gcw/gcw-zero-open-source-gaming-handheld CPU: Ingenic JZ4770 1 GHz MIPS processor GPU:...

Re: Pi compatible WIfi adaptor

Just an PSA for US users. I'm a frequent shopper of Monoprice.com for cheap cables and accessories, so I decided to take a gamble on their "Ultra-Mini USB Wireless Lan 802.11N Adapter - 1T1R (150Mbps)" http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=105&cp_id=10501&cs_id=1050108&p_id=8072&seq=1&f...

Re: Bash script help

THANK YOU!
-z was what I was missing. I am working my way through Advanced Bash-Scripting (http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/ ) and either missed that point or hadn't gotten to it yet.

Bash script help

I'm trying to write my first actually useful Bash script (while I'm working my way through the tldp.org Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide) and I'm running in to trouble with if/then statements. I'm hoping someone can give me a proper example. I'm trying to write a script that will run the command: ps au...

Re: Mount.ntfs-3g taking 55% CPU. Normal?

Thanks for the recommendation; I've never used exFat. Looks like it works on both OSX and Windows, and allows large files. Nice. I have many files in excess of 4gb, some as large as 16gb.

Is exFat natively supported on the Pi under Raspbian, or would I need to install a package for it?

Re: Mount.ntfs-3g taking 55% CPU. Normal?

I certainly may do that if I can't get it to run without overheating, but one goal of my project was to be able to detach this hard drive and plug it in to other machines, and ext4 is a bit inconvenient on OSX and Windows. The screenshot is showing while the pi is actively downloading, and I have my...

Mount.ntfs-3g taking 55% CPU. Normal?

Hi there. This is my first post here. I've been learning so much about Linux since getting the Pi, and so far it's been a great experience. My current project is to get my Pi to automatically mount an NTFS HDD at boot (success!) and run a chron job to use lftp to mirror a directory on my ftp server ...
