Re: RISC OS and Hyperpixel Screen

The solution I'd recommend, for internet access, is an adaptor like https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/thre ... -connector :-)

Re: RISCOS Not on NOOBS?

The recent 'stable' release of RISC OS, version 5.24 (https://www.riscosopen.org/content/down ... spberry-pi), should work on all current Pi models, we just need to lobby for it to go back on NOOBS!

Re: New text-to-speech (TTS) engine

Hi, I'm trying the install instructions at http://nerdvittles.com/?p=16463 , from 2016. No luck yet, but that's probably access issues; as a Linux newbie, I just tried using sudo with everything (give me RISC OS any day)! Will report back if I'm successful... UPDATE: Actually found that the instruct...

Re: RPi incredibly slow after Pixel upgrade

Same problem here, all well until Pixel upgrade, now my two 3Bs slow down until they finally become unusable with constant card access :-( At least one card is class 10, as I recall, and both worked fine before Pixel. On another note, I personally feel the new default graphics and background look am...

Re: Boot with number lock on

Thanks again, I'll give that a try, when I'm with my Pi :-) Whilst I like having Num Lock on by default, my main reason for it on the Pi is so I can see from the keyboard LED if my kids have left the damn thing on... again! No fan noise, obscured power LED and supply, and non-functioning DPMS (anoth...

Re: Boot with number lock on

Thanks, but as urkraft points out, and hence my reply, the GUI (the horrible IMHO Pixel) ignores the config setting. Besides, why should a user have to edit a config setting for something like this?!

Re: Boot with number lock on

Yes, a quick search shows LXDE GUI has number lock default to off. On GNOME you can set 'remember-numlock-state' using dconf-editor (org>gnome>settings-daemon>peripherals>keyboard) or 'gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard remember-numlock-state true' in terminal. Likewise, I'...

Re: Iridium Rising

P.S. I'm signing in as 'pi' (as instructed), not 'root', and couldn't change the file access for the relevant directory/folder using the file manager either (still didn't have permission, as before).

Re: Iridium Rising

I'm using BerryBoot, so can't run Iridium Rising from the Pi Store (a re-boot just returns to BerryBoot). I've tried running from the command line, as mentioned above, but unfortunately that just gives error messages saying that I don't have permission to create 3 JPEG files and change 2 file permis...
