Re: Pi 3 with LCD screen

I don't have a Pi desktop handy but you could try holding 'Left Alt' and click on any part of the window with the 'Left Mouse' to move it around. It works in Xfce but, as I said, I don't have a Pi desktop handy.

As JimmyN said it should just work. Correct me if I'm wrong but you're trying to view a windows share on your Pi and not share a Pi folder to windows? If that's the case do you have smbclient installed? sudo apt-get install smbclient Once that in installed open your filemanager with smb://ip-to-wind...

Shouldn't that be

Code: Select all

with a space between /python and /home.
Also check all your paths in the script are absolute and not relative.
It would help if you posted your code too.

Re: Raspian -- desktop shortcuts?

If you open PCManFM, find the file/folder you need to create a shortcut for, highlight it.
From the PCManFM menu select 'edit', then click 'create link' then browse to where you want to put the link (eg Desktop).
That should be all you need.

Re: The pi and GPS

What about using Navit, it's in the pi repositories
apt-cache search navit
It's an open source car navigation system that can use OSM data.

I've never tried it but it might be worth a go.
