Re: HFP for Linux (Bluetooth Handsfree) - can't install

You guys could possibly try this out

https://github.com/heinervdm/nohands

It has been updated much more recently than the sourceforge version.

Official 7" Display Compatibility

I have this PI that I ordered in 2014. Will it work with the Official 7" display?

Re: SqueezePlug Version 7 available

Been running this for a while on 2 raspberry pi's and it has been working great. Recently I purchased a spotify premium account and it works great with one pi playing, but if I sync 2 pi's it only makes it 20-30 seconds into the song and then stalls out.

Re: pi for 3d printer

You probably wont gain much speed out of the pi instead of an arduino, even if you could process the data as fast as the motors can go, the mechanical parts would not be able to handle ghe rapid snappinb back and forth needed. The speed of ghe reprap stuff is pretty normal for almost any 3d printer ...

Re: Booting Raspbian from a laptop

What DeeJay said. You can not use raspbian or any Raspberry Pi OS with an x86 CPU, but you can boot regular Linux off of a USB stick/drive. I have done exactly that with both ArchLinux and Ubuntu (I think it was 12.04...). It works fine. Something like this may help as well (I just bought one to res...

Hate to tell you this, but it looks like NFL gamepass uses Adobe Flash which is not available on the PI. I don't think you will get it to work unless they miraculously decide to move to HTML5

Re: How do I make exe's for raspberry pi?

Making "exes" is something all Linux users should know, even if they don't write the code themselves, and is a big part of the point of creating the Pi in the first place. "Hello world" is a good place to start. Compiling stuff on Linux is easy, if you download an application source distro you need...

Re: Boot Raspberry pi via USB

If you have a small sd card you can have the bootloader on it and have it then boot from the USB card. Basically you would have nothing but the fat partition on the sdcard and root and home and whatnot on the USB.

Re: Permissions problem

Try

Code: Select all

sudo chown pi:pi -R *
The -R option makes the command recursive so it effects everything inside the folder. If you run

Code: Select all

sudo chown root:pi *
not only are you only changing permissions for only the folder, not everything in it, you are changing ownership from root to root...

Huh, according to that it is that way. I guess I have just never seen it used that way. Learn something new everyday. I would still add the group in as users can be in multiple groups and it would make sense to me to make sure you are giving ownership to the correct group. That's just me I guess tho...

Re: wrote over /home/pi/.profile accidentally!

yes, there is a difference, in you're version you are making it readable by the user pi, but not the group pi. The : separates user and group so it is kind of like this

Code: Select all

Re: wrote over /home/pi/.profile accidentally!

You want the file to be owned by your user and users group. Best way to do this is to do

Code: Select all

sudo chown pi:pi /home/pi/.profile
that way it can be read by your user.
