Re: Tests wanted: Tor, Freenet & I2P

So I've come back to this project after some time, and following the purchase of a Raspberry Pi model B+ (not that the B+ makes any difference to these instructions). However this new Pi is only going to act as a TOR proxy (courtesy of Adafruit's excellent instuctions, https://learn.adafruit.com/oni...

Daikin KKRP01a

Hi I am considering the installation of an air to air heat pump system, and one of the options is a plug in controller that connects to the network via RJ45 ( http://www.daikin.co.uk/products/index.jsp?singleprv=KKRP01A ). These sell for £240+VAT in the UK, which seems extortionate. Clearly a Pi set...

Re: Tests wanted: Tor, Freenet & I2P

bigobelix Thanks for the well laid out instructions, which as something of a noob, appeared to go well. For other noobs i would suggest adding a line under the "java -jar new_installer_offline.jar" instruction to change the default directory to /home/pi/Freenet (or maybe that is obvious for most!). ...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Going through the process of autostarting the ecodroidlink and I have to run sudo killall blueman-applet for the ecodroid script to complete. If possible the simplest approach would be to prevent the blueman-applet starting during boot in the first place, but I don't have the knowledge to go poking ...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

This was the dongle I bought http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00A ... UTF8&psc=1, but I suspect it is a generic Bluetooth 4.0 CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) compatible device.

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Many many thanks to ykasidit, for cracking this problem. Got it all up and working, and tested the system out by 'throwing' a Hangouts video chat with our two boys onto the living room TV (even the wife was impressed!). First impressions are that the Bluetooth NAP is plenty fast enough for the relat...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Kasidit Your first hunch was correct because connecting to the Pi via the WiFi enabled the script to run to the very last line, when the following message appeared:- "End user might be on a Graphical Desktop with......user can run killall bluetooth-applet anytime..........." I ran the "killall bluet...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Kasidit & Douglas Much apparent development work on this project with the added confusion created by Android Kit-Kat! I ave had a go at following the ecodroidlink method as it appears simpler for a noob such as myself, but unfortunately it falls over onn the line:- edl_bridge_init: Attempt call: sud...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Strangely enough i was following the tutorial well, and remarkably (i am always surprised when things work!) the bridge worked 1st time. In fact after a couple of reboots i still see the bridge when i do an ifconfig. It was the import of dbus in test-nap when it fell over. No i haven't tried the cle...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Hi Douglas. Just wondering how near you are to completing the work on your Bluetooth deamon? I have to say I am keen to give it a try, when ready.

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

I started this post because there appeared to be a real need to find a way round Miracast hogging the wifi of a tablet. As the uptake of tablets increases and the volume of Miracast TVs & boxes becomes ever larger, using the Pi as a Bluetooth access point seems the ideal workaround. So i will contin...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Right i've had a look at sys.path and attach contents below, along with the import dbus failure message. Looking at the sys.path entries on the link in your post, the missing ones aren't present in Python 3.2. >>> import sys >>> from pprint import pprint as p >>> p(sys.path) ['', '/home/pi', '/usr/b...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

I read over the 'stackoverflow' post following a Google search on the subject and had to confess I didn't understand most of it! I did run: sudo apt-get install python-virtualenv, and then run the command: virtualenv --system-site-packages dbus-venv, and I notice the directory dbus-venv created off ...

Re: Bluetooth Access Point

Many thanks ykasidit, that appears to be exactly what I need. As I have all the hardware (except the BT dongle), and I don't live in the USA, are the configuration instructions available? And would the Access point setup work on Raspbian Wheezy?

Bluetooth Access Point

I have just used the Miracast feature on my Android tablet and discovered i lose Wi-Fi to my LAN when i do. A logical workaround would be to use my Pi as a Bluetooth Access Point to reconnect to the LAN, and back out onto the internet. Looking at various Pi forums i haven't found a precise descripti...
