Beginner - Please help

Hello, Is there a complete beginners guide to getting up and going with the Mame4All and Spectrum emulators available from the Pi Store? I've downloaded them but I'm stuck when it comes to finding and downloading games. My linux skills are, at this time, utterly rubbish and I'm lost in these forums....

Re: Screen Saver Option Gone?

I was wondering where they went also. They were nice screen savers.

Anyone?

Start menu wiped.

I tried to install the Arduino IDE and after what seemed like half an hour or more it failed.

The start menu is now empty. The same thing happened when I first attempted to install the Piface software.

Can I restore the menu? What did I do wrong in the first place?

Re: Direct links to Gertboard Manuals and Software

I've downloaded this zip file but I can't unzip it in either the file manager or LXterminal. The former doesn't react to "extract to here" (as I'm used to in Windows, it just doesn't do anything when I select it) and with the latter I'm following the Gertboard User Manual but its giving me errors. C...

Re: Getboard assembly, J3

Thanks Silverfox,

On which page is J3 listed in the assembly manual? Without the photo I wouldn't have known to put it on the board.

Every other component is meticulously listed.

Re: Getboard assembly, J3

Was it supposed to be included in the assembly instructions?

I only knew it was missing from comparing my board to the photograph.

Getboard assembly, J3

I don't see any reference to header J3 in the assembly manual. Is this just an omission?

I assume it must be as its referred to in the user guide.

I know its probably an obvious question but I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something.

Re: Lost SMC

Thanks for spotting that. I thought I'd checked that.

This is it then?

Re: Lost SMC

Thanks Gert and everyone,

I'll be ordering it from the US. I think this is the correct part isn't it?;

A minimum order of ten and a five dollar minimum price. Perhaps the model A will be out here shortly.

Re: PI3D not opening

Hi jimilton, That sounds very much like an old version of Pi3D. A new version was released recently which instead of restarting and using the BuckfastAbbey example, launches a spinning globe in a window. If you start Pi Store whilst connected to the internet and click on Pi3D, can you see an 'Updat...

Lost SMC

I lost one of my 100nF capacitors. What's the easiest way to replace one of these? I just checked Farnell's website and, if my eyes aren't deceiving me, I have to order 4000 of them.

Re: PI3D not opening

When I click "launch" I get the following message; "app running to start another app or edit your settings please close pi3d first." followed by two minutes of code running down the screen like a reboot. Then I have a window open with the beautiful abbey that I can't do anything with except move the...
