Why no touches on touch display?

Dear folks, what do I need to install on a pure raspbian image (without PIXEL) to get touches working on the 7" touch display?

Kindest regards!

PS: I don’t want LXDE or Openbox. Using xmonad here.

Re: Differentiate four of the same USB devices.

That would be great, thank you. Though the problem is, because different people will set up this exhibition artwork, that the cameras could be connected to different USB ports each time. I labeled them, but I have to also take care of someone who just don’t care about the labels. So addressing each ...

Differentiate four of the same USB devices.

Dear community, is it somehow possible to address the four USB ports of the Raspberry Pi 3? I’m having four of the same webcams attached to the Pi, but they unfortunately all have the same UID and Serial Number. How can I address the USB-port directly or … do you have some other fancy idea on how to...

Hey. There is no LXDE installed. There is also no .config directory. Just the .xinitrc file and the files in /etc/X11/ I wrote above.

Dear community, so I thought this should be very easy, but I tried it for hours without success. I’d like to start X (for testing now via startx , later it should autostart after boot) and all that should happen is showing a background image. I tried xsetbg , I tried feh , … nothing works.

I would also like it to automatically shut down the wlan0 interface if eth0 is connected.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 wlan0 MAC-address change in /boot/cmdline

Hey again,

so it seems, I can change the MAC address via the command given in the post above:

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig wlan0 hw ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
Though, I did not yet find a way to change it via cmdline.txt …

How could it be done with a script?
