Desktop name

Hi everyone I'm using the multiple desktops on Raspbian Stretch. I would like one of those desktops to use the hostname of the Pi as its name. Said hostname is called to change often. So at each boot, I would have a script that takes the hostname and overwrites the main desktop name. However I have ...

Scratch 2 File extension when using an extension

Been playing with the extensions for a bit.
What is the intended scratch extension? Would it still be a .sb2, or a .sbx ?
It seems if I save it once, it's a .sb2, but if I load it and save it again, it becomes a .sbx and is no longer loadable.

Anyone else can see this ?

Re: Stretch + Scratch 2 + Sense HAT

thanks @ghp

Not quite the answer I wanted to hear, but I guess I'll have to live with it. So an extension does not have access to sprites? That's too bad. I hate working with 1.4 because the kids I have are still struggling with keyboard skills.

Stretch + Scratch 2 + Sense HAT

I am giving a workshop with Sense Hat in about a month. I was thrilled to see it is now supported in the on-board Scratch 2 but it's severely limited! It used to be that we could display a sprite onto the SenseHat pixel, if that sprite was small enough. Now, are the kids expected to use one block pe...

Yes it did but it's been a while.
I'm not saying it's Pixel's fault, just stating which version of Raspbian I'm using on a pi3

Re: setting title when starting lxterminal

ah! Found it!
If you already have a terminal window up and running, then you need sudo to start a new one and set its title.
If you don't have any terminal already open, then sudo is not required.

Solved.

setting title when starting lxterminal

Hello
I have a script that used to start a lxterminal and set its title. It used to work. It stopped working a week or two ago (or at least that's when I noticed it)

lxterminal --title="My Terminal"
lxterminal -t "My Terminal"
both fail to set the title.

Trivial, but I'm baffled.

Some dependencies are not installed by default.
I got around them by using

Code: Select all
