Re: Not running a script

I try to avoid using rc.local for boot scripts. Once upon a time I used them exclusively, then I learned cron and life was better. Try moving your scripts to /home/pi and adding the following line to crontab (type "crontab -e" to get to the editor and see my sources below for a more in depth tutoria...

Hey Guys, I have a weird problem. I created a new user and assigned them a home directory. But, when I log in as that user all I get is a $ prompt.

No, it has an interface like a tv. Windows are too clear to do anything on and it's hard to save your work when it's constantly being bombarded with windex viruses.

None. I'm using an arduino to interface to my projects. GPIO won't do what I need it to do alone and I'd rather not have to fiddle with a gert board.

I wouldn't worry about it being sluggish. If you run it directly from the command line it shouldn't have any problems. The desktop GUI uses quite a bit of resources even though it is pretty lightweight itself.

Re: Gaming

Yep, the ps1 has pretty low specs and you can emulate it on quite a low spec machine. I'm more interested in older systems.

Also, we should perchance keep the number of tm "emulator" topics low on the official site. I'd hate for the foundation to get flak for "supporting" emulation.
