Re: Enable volume key mapping on a laptop

I've obviously got the AudioMute command slightly wrong. It does work but not quite as it should, it just mutes the speaker, it does not unmute to the previously selected volume level. Anyone care to chip in?

Enable volume key mapping on a laptop

As per previous posts... I have installed Raspberry Pi Desktop x86 on a Lenovo Z50 laptop. I'm working through issues related to hardware and my preferred applications. The <F1> Mute / <F2> LowerVolume / <F3> RaiseVolume keys were not working but I have discovered this solution. To enable volume key...

Re: Hibernate / Sleep

The whole Sleep - Hibernate / Suspend issue seems problematic under many/most Linux variants. I think I will just get used to pressing the power switch.

Re: Hibernate / Sleep

Thanks. I had read that but it only mentioned Jessie + Wheezy. And not quite what I was asking for.

Hibernate / Sleep

As per previous post... I have installed Raspberry Pi Desktop x86 on a Lenovo Z50 laptop. I'm working through issues related to hardware and my preferred applications. I would like to have Hibernate occur when I close the lid / screen. Also, would be nice to have options on Shutdown menu. I'm sure I...

GUI for touchpad control?

I have installed Raspberry Pi Desktop x86 on a Lenovo Z50 laptop. I'm working through issues related to hardware and my preferred applications. To make "tapping" work on the touchpad I created a 40-libinput.conf file as detailed in https://wiki.debian.org/SynapticsTouchpad (Nb. the Z50 has an Elan M...

Re: Older Pi, latest Raspbian

Thanks for the reply. Good to know, I can proceed with confidence. I suppose my thought was that the new Pixel desktop may have been beyond the capabilities of the old Pi.

Older Pi, latest Raspbian

I have an old Pi (Model B Rev 2, 512MB, I bought it December 2012). Can I install Raspbian Jessie (July 2017)? I know I could try it myself but as some issues aren't immediately apparent to those unfamiliar, it would be nice to know if it is possible or even advisable.

Re: PiFace jumper settings

I have now found the jumper setting information for the PiRack here

http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/17287 ... =September

On the back of the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information
leaflet. Who ever reads those?

Re: PiFace jumper settings

scotty101, thanks for that. It shows what the Digital jumpers are but not how to set the address bit jumpers. Also the Rack has twelve jumpers, I can make a best guess but I would like sight of some documentation.

PiFace jumper settings

Is the PiFace company defunct? There seems to be no activity on http://www.piface.org.uk, new blog posts etc. This link http://prod.www.piface.org.uk/guides/howto/PiFace_Digital_Jumper_Settings/ goes back to the site homepage. Nothing very helpful on the element14 Community board either. I am trying...

Re: How to play a sound (music)? Not ogg or mp3 s!

Thanks toxibunny & micahcowan for your replies. As pointed out, and of course as I was forgetting, the BEEB Mod.B had the TI SN76489 (and the CBM64 had it's SID). No SOUND or ENVELOPE commands for the Pi :( .wav samples are fun to play with but not what I originally had in mind. The PyAudio method i...

How to play a sound (music)? Not ogg or mp3 s!

I want to do some very simple programming probably in Python. I want to play a list of musical notes in the form of note name, duration eg. A, whole beat; G, quarter etc. Or some numerical representation eg. 440Hz, 50ms ... I am sure most BASIC interpreters had this feature back in the day. I presum...
