Re: Help building a google cloud print server

I did this recently, my write up is here. I did it for a network printer, but it will apply equally for a USB printer. Enabling sharing in CUPS will let other computers on your network print to the printers via the network as well.

HowTo: Google Cloud Print, headless server

I set up my Pi to work as a google cloud print bridge, without faffing around in chrome etc, so the connector is running as a nice compact init.d process. There wasn't much in the way of info on how to do it online, so I wrote it up here.

Re: Raspberry Pi controlled Variable Resistor?

You don't want a variable resistor, you want to create a digitally controlled power supply. Plenty of resources on how to do that out there, this one is very detailed.

Re: Save MIDI songs on Pi?

So you want to read a series of MIDI notes as they're played, compare them to some sample sequences and then generate some output based on the match? I can certainly help with the capturing MIDI aspect of it. There are a few ways to skin the cat, the easiest probably being using PortMIDI (I think it...

Re: YouTube on Raspbmc

Youtube is version 3.1.0. Same problem happening with South Park 1.0.0. Also Transmission doesn't start, with a message of "Failed to connect to transmission" and then asks whether I want the settings dialog. Interestingly, I get a snatch of transmission interface before that dialog pops up. I'll ha...

YouTube on Raspbmc

Hi All, Just got my Pi running with Raspbmc. Normal video playback works fine, as does the TED app (yay!), but the youtube app is currently being totally fail. Basically, I can browse the category tree fine, but as soon as I try to hit a leaf node, after a while of attempted loading I get a script f...

Re: RPi Footie Cam

I'm not in any way knocking an attempt to do this with a RasPi, but you may wish to consider using something like this, which will do everything you want, is smaller and easier to affix to the goalposts and is probably cheaper.

Leaves your Pi free for other stuff!

Re: Boards plugging into GPIO should be Male or female?

<t>I would suggest a female connector on the pi board.  Very easy to break a male connector by forcing or dropping etc, females much less so.  It might be a good idea to supply females on both the pi and the expansion board and plug together using through headers, so if the pins get bent, they can e...

Re: How many do you invision purchasing?

<t>I'll be getting hold of a B as soon as I can as a MythTV frontend, probably through XBMC initially.  Eventually another two to do the same thing - I don't want to discriminate against any of my TV's .<br/> <br/> And then a few more, and a few after that.  I'll come up with uses for them where an ...

Re: DMX controller for LED architectural lighting

<t>It's almost certain that a recompile of MagicQ for ARM will be available, and there's been quite a bit of interest in the device on a theatrical forum I'm on (mostly stirred by me ).  I can't wait to see what the RaspPi can do, and may well get building a breakout shield to output RS-485 from UAR...
