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

I succesfully compiled the repository sources for svox pico engine and it works quite well. I put all the steps (in english) in a post on my blog, just in case someone needs them:

Re: Using Whatsapp with RPi

Well, actually it's only a matter of your immagination... By now I have just the script downloadable from my site, but you can add much more. For example you could: - Ask to send you a photo from the picamera (I already did this for myself), so you can check a room - Get data from sensors like tempe...

Re: Adafruit MPL115A2 Temp/Pressure sensor - Python

You were absolutely right: I had success with a Google search! ;)

I already saw the lack of information for successfully using this sensor with RPi and I was really happy to finally see a useful post.

Thank You really much!

Using Whatsapp with RPi

I hope this can be useful to someone. I wrote a couple of tutorials in my website to help configuring Yowsup (python library for Whatsapp) and using it to communicate with your RPi. These are part of a project I'm trying to realize for my home automation, but for now they are just small drafts... Th...

Re: Servo Motore Impazzito?

Personalmente non ho ancora provato a collegare un servo al RPi, quindi non ti so dire molto della parte software, ma per la parte hardware sembrerebbe essere un problema di timing... Mi spiego meglio: per posizionare un servo è necessario mandargli un impulso (erroneamente molti confondono tale imp...

Re: comandare un motore dc

Se non ti interessa cambiare il senso di rotazione puoi sostituire il L293 con un transistor, una resistenza e un diodo.

Re: Comandare motore riciclato da CD-Rom

Comincio con una rapida spiegazione dei diversi tipi di motori, sperando ti possa essere utile... Motori "semplici": da tensione e girano. Ovviamente se inverti tensione cambiano senso di marcia. Servo: oltre all'alimentazione (+ e -) necessitano di un segnale digitale particolare che li posiziona c...

Two HDDs, same brand/model, only one seen by Raspberry

I have two external HDDs 2TBytes ntfs self powered and they are of same brand and same model, but only one is recognized by Raspberry (I used Raspbmc and OpenElec and RPi is model B rev.2). The other HDD cannot be seen by the RPi (I also checked with df, fdisk -l and dmesg, but without results). Onl...

Re: C64 emulator

On my site You can find one image with VICE already installed and with some game. Just go to http://www.mascal.it/rpi64_e.html
VICE will start automatically when powering on RPi.

Re: no audio su Raspbian “wheezy”

Potrebbero esserci due possibilità. O il modulo sonoro non è attivo oppure prendi l'uscita audio sbagliata... Prova a digitare sudo amixer cset numid=3 1 se vuoi l'uscita sul jack oppure sudo amixer cset numid=3 2 se lo vuoi sull'hdmi (questo sarebbe il default). Se nemmeno così ti funziona prova pr...
