Re: Can't connect to home sky BB wifi Pi3

I had similar problems with the Sky Q hub and it was to do with the dual band. I separated the dual bands, giving them separate SSIDs and then the pi3 connected fine to the 2.4GHz band.

Re: PIXEL FOR PC AND MAC

I have an 8 year old PC with a Gigabyte P35-DS3L motherboard, Intel Q6600 processor, NVIDIA GT640 graphics and 4GB RAM. It boots to Pixel from USB okay, however there is no menu bar at the top (it flickers briefly when starting up, but then disappears). The rest of the desktop is fine e.g. right-cli...

Re: Help mouse lag and window lag

I agree that the window lag is very noticeable since the upgrade to pixel. I'm using a pi 3 with a new image: moving a window of any reasonable size is very, very laggy. Never used to be, before pixel.

Moving windows in PIXEL

Hi

I have a fresh installation of the new Raspbian/Pixel running on a Pi3.

I have noticed that if I try to move the position of any windows, it does not keep up with the mouse movement. I had not noticed this behaviour before. Seems to be worse the bigger the window is.

Thanks.

I'll uninstall your Chromium and try the official one, then see if the sync issue is resolved.
How do I uninstall the Chromium that was installed with this guide?

I know I am being really dumb but why is the option -lm required when we already have #include <math.h> ?

Compiling Amiga code with GCC

In the late 1980s I used the Lattice C compiler on an Amiga to make various programs that required the use of a math parser. I obtained the code for a math parser from a Fred Fish public domain disk (number 92) which worked perfectly and compiled without issue. Having not used C since that time I am...

Yes I forgot to put the name of the share as stated by JimmyN. It should work if you add that. Also you can wait for the network to be ready during boot by selecting the appropriate setting in raspi-config.

Re: Stella Atari Emulator in Jessie

I just installed the new version of Jessie and enabled the new OpenGL driver. I was pleased to see that Stella is now working again at full speed when in the default small window but if I go to full screen it is horrendously slow. OpenGL is selected in the settings.

Any ideas anyone?

Hi I've just ugraded with the new version of Rasbian and enabled the OpenGL driver. I realise this is experimental but as soon as it is enabled I can no longer use Omxplayer to watch videos (or with the Kweb frontend). If I turn the new driver off Omxplayer works again.

Re: Network drive on fstab does not mount on start-up

I noted that in the recent Raspbian Jessie image, the rasp-config utility has the option to have the Pi boot process wait for network.
This works really well, and worth a try.

At least here the solution for the annoying X- cursor 1) create the file .xsessionrc in the home directory (note the dot at the beginning) 2) make it executeable with chmod ugo+x .xsessionrc 3) put the following content into this file: xsetroot -cursor_name left_ptr& Have fun Thanks, works perfectly!
