Certainly not! I prefer some 3D for spotting buttons faster...

Re: All Geany is FLAT (no border for boxes, buttons, tabs, etc.)

Thank you for your explanation. I am using the latest Raspbian download BUT I copied my entire /home/pi from my previous installation. I suppose it copied old configurations of GTK (or other presentation layer software) over the upgraded ones. Any idea of the files I should look after ?

All Geany is FLAT (no border for boxes, buttons, tabs, etc.)

Geany seems a great IDE but on the Pi, display are not legible: I have no borders for buttons, boxes, tabs, etc. Am I the only one? Where is the configuration for this so I can correct? Any known workaround? Thanks!

Re: apt-get upgrade completly blocked

There are files corrupted on the SD card.

Thanks for pointing this issue.

For me, it makes the "basic Pi" rather unsuitable for sensor data storage as the SD when corrupt after only two months of service !

Re: apt-get upgrade completly blocked

Searching Internet, it seems to be issues when upgrading initramfs-tools. As suggested, I will have a try with another card but not exactly the same setup... If it is the SD card (recent Kingston 8Gb from a reputed source), it means RPi is no good for Real Time data collection even using RRD and 10 ...

Re: GPIO Matrix Keypad driver installation

I read 1-Wire sensors every 15 seconds (two of them for the moment) through an I2C interface (AB Electronics 1-Wire interface for RPi). I went to directly scan the matrix with GPIO, encounter a bug with mode switching (see other post https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=108461&p=9...

Thanks Joan ! As I transfer files by cut&paste from the PuTTY windows to my PC browser, lines 66&67 in keypadClass2.py.txt where indeed duplicated. Sorry about that.

Re: GPIO Matrix Keypad driver installation

Indeed, reading the code of the Linux Matrix Keypad driver shows that external pulldown resistors are needed (internal pulldown are not activated). A configurable option should be added for that: to test it: to develop that I would need to invest in a Kernel compilation framework: not much time for ...

Re: Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400: Does it work for

I just bought a K400 and it was NOT working...
I added in /etc/rc.local the rmmod and "modprobe hid-logitech-dj" that another post suggest.
Then it is OK in the console (or rsh) but the local keyboard layout is lost in LXE (manual startx).
With another keyboard, it is OK in console and LXE.

after doing expand_rootfs, one must select <Finish> and confirm <yes> to reboot.
