Re: The 'cd' (change directory) command

I'm trying out some of the Linux Basics in my RPI User's Guide. I seem to be getting conflicting results with the '/' vs the '\'. For example, cd /Documents doesn't work but cd \Documents does work. Yet... cd \boot doesn't work but cd /boot does work. why the discrepancy? Firstly, "/" at the beginn...

Re: New to Pi; Keyboard, Mouse Won't Work

Keyboard checking...
1. Any keyboard LEDs on/off activity with capslock, numlock etc.?
2. CRT-Alt-Fx should change the desktop to a a different console. Try CRT-Alt-F1 for example.

Re: vnc on the actual desktop

So, how does Vino compare to x11vnc? Better? Worse? How? I guess the answer is: different . Vino is intrinsic to the Gnome environment and it is hardly configurable via the command line. It also has pretty limited functionality. To make it running in principle a gui is needed. It comes "pre-install...

Re: vnc on the actual desktop

Thank you Simon. I like flexibility of x11vnc so likely I will end up using it, unless I conclude this would be an overkill or it is much more demanding in terms of resources. Not that I have any problem with it at this moment but who knows what this small cutie (model B) is going to be running even...

Install the vino server. sudo apt-get install vi...

Re: vnc on the actual desktop

I think I found the answer but did not have time yet to put it all together. This functionality within the other distribution is provided by the Vino server. It is originally for the Gnome but It is included to the Raspberry Debian as well so should be only a matter of proper integration with lightg...

Re: vnc on the actual desktop

If this is really as trivial as the search you suggested, please point me to the tutorial giving the answer to my problem. I will really appreciate it. - using an "external" vncserver (i.e. tightvnc) whatever display is to be chosen does not automatically give the image to the physical monitor and i...

Just to make it doub...
