Re: RASPBIAN WITH PIXEL DESKTOP FOR PC AND MAC

Yes, thank you for the reminder. I also had to edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config so that it reads: # Change to no to disable tunnelled clear text passwords PasswordAuthentication yes For some reason, this ships set to "no". I changed it to yes. And then did: /etc/init.d/ssh restart (Note that reload might ...

Re: RASPBIAN WITH PIXEL DESKTOP FOR PC AND MAC

I cant get SSH working. 1) It is hard to tell from your post whether you are talking about SSH or about RDP. They are (completely) different things. 2) I have SSH working in Pixel86. You just have to enable it. I did this by putting: /etc/init.d/ssh start in /etc/rc.local. I doubt the "/boot/ssh" t...

Re: RASPBIAN WITH PIXEL DESKTOP FOR PC AND MAC

I cant get SSH working . I would like to use putty or remote desktop from my Win7 desktop. This works on all other Jessie based raspberry pi systems I own but I can not get it working for my new x86 image running on a DELL laptop (D620). Can we please have raspi-config available? That might help. I...

Re: PIXEL FOR PC AND MAC

Is this the official forum for PC/Mac liveCD? Maybe this needs a dedicated forum?

So I booted from USB on my DELL LATITUDE D620 Core 2 Duo laptop and it's pretty responsive but the Wifi adapter is not recognized. Any ideas? Thanks.

Yes, I have walked away :( I have years of experience with .NET/C# and was so excited about the possibility of using it to program on Raspberry Pi but became disappointed and frustrated years ago and have given up.

Then I read somewhere that you might need adjust the memory split and give the GPU 128 MB. I checked my c...

This might be a possible solution (see last post in thread): Mono (C#) 2.11.4 hard-float for Raspberry Pi I took a look at my system and it already had libgdiplus.so installed in /usr/lib but it did not have the symbolic link from /usr/local/lib.

Re: Raspbian vs Wheezy (beta) Mono support

I used ILSpy to have a look at your test executable. I don't know if it makes any difference, but you are targeting: // Architecture: AnyCPU (64-bit preferred) // Runtime: .NET 4.0 Try changing to 32-bit and target .NET 2.0 and re-test. I'm under the impression that Mono is usually a few vers behin...

Re: Raspbian vs Wheezy (beta) Mono support

One problem we have been seeing with mono is that the DataTime class does not report the correct data. You can test to see if this is now fixed by using the 'csharp' mono tool. Simply run csharp and you will get a 'csharp>' command line prompt where you can type C# lines of code. If you enter the fo...

I was finally able to answer my original question -- can you run a model B on 2 AA batteries and operate the camera board? Short answer: Yes. Using this very inexpensive (1.85$ USD) USB charger and my own 2 AA batteries I was able to power my model B for 67 minutes and using the camera board to snap...

Re: power usage -- run on 2-AA batteries?

At what voltage will the Raspberry Pi just stop working? When the pi is halted but power is still on the voltage reads 5.05 but when the pi starts up that drops to 4.80. If I use the camera it drops further to 4.72. This is with my ac power. With the battery pack voltage starts lower at say 4.70 and...

Re: power usage -- run on 2-AA batteries?

If you put 4 AA batteries in series without any circuitry the voltage will be 4x1.38=5.52V when full and 4x1.2=4.8V when depleted. But the 5.52V will be lower when the Pi with camera is drawing power. Should work fine I guess. The 2nd device I referenced (my most recent post) says that it can take ...

I don't have to worry about extra weight like that hot air balloon project (which is very cool btw) so I can add more batteries but I guess I need a different USB converter device.
