Re: Minimal Kiosk Browser

This is a really cool browser/desktop system, great work on it. I was wondering, if I use your command api to launch advancemame, will it allow mame to go fullscreen? I've been looking for a nice menu system for my arcade software, and this looks to work well. Also, is there a way I can open the bro...

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind next time. :)

Re: Simple C keyboard emulation

PeterO, As you suspect, from my point of view, your answer wasn't very simple for me to understand. I think I get that /dev/input/event# devices are input devices and you're saying that I can use C to inject events into them. Beyond that, however, I have no idea what I'm doing :'( I've really only g...

Simple C keyboard emulation

Hello everyone, I'd like to know if any library or set of libraries exists to emulate keyboard presses on the command line. I'd like to hook the GPIO pins up to buttons to play game with AdvanceMame, so I was going to write a C program to run in the background that takes inputs on the GPIO and corre...

Re: [ALL IN ONE] Ultimate Raspbian - XBMC, Gaming, Desktop

This looks very cool, but can I ask, will it run OK at low resolutions? I'm making (another) portable raspberry pi, and don't want to spend 30 mins downloading it if it looks bad on a small screen. :| Otherwise, I'll use this as my gaming card, for my portable pi. ;)

Re: DUAL power supply box - 01.11.2013 + 4.3" TFT

It would be awesome if you could make a video about this, showing off the features, the device in use, and any other noteworthy things (like what you personally use it for. An outside connection to the GPIO ports would be pretty cool too. Is the TFT you're using this one: https://www.adafruit.com/pr...

Re: Raspberry pi portable computer (how original :| )

A little proposal. In my first case project (not posted yet), which I'm using as a home theater, instead of Female/Female Jumper Wires, I have installed an old Floppy Drive IDE cable - it fits perfectly to the GPIO and is more compact. The only cons is that there are 8 unused female pins - 2by2 on ...

Re: Raspberry pi portable computer (how original :| )

The worst thing about the RPi is the lack of USB ports (my laptop has four ports with an integral keyboard/mouse). I always have a 4-port USB hub plugged into my RPi (it's not usually powered). Having a permanently connected USB powered hub would be a great addition to your case (regardless of the ...

Hello everybody, After posting a couple of topics in this forum, I have decided that I should ask all of my questions in one place, so I have created this topic for my portable computer project.

Re: Portable case: Shortening the micro usb plug.

Hi all, Thanks for all the great responses, but to those who suggested the 5v rail, I'm already using that as a power source for my screen. The people that suggested it though, its a good idea, just not a good situation. So, I'll probably roll with the different plug types, and worst case, I hack up...

Portable case: Shortening the micro usb plug.

Hi all, I am on my way to making a portable R-Pi and have run into a placement issue; I want the SD card slot to be directly accessible to the outside of the case, but the Micro usb cable is in the way. I'll include a diagram, as I'm bad at explaining things. hacked up plug.png The solution could be...

Re: DUAL power supply box

This case is pretty awesome, I was hoping to make a similar one myself (thanks for the help with that :D), and I wanted to know how you fit the Micro B USB plug on the edge there? Did you butcher up a cable or what? I too want to make the SD card accessible, but I can't because the power plug is too...

Re: Portable R-Pi: Powering a screen

I have just added a 4,3" display to the upper side of my case (I'll post a picture soon) and I'm draining the power directly after the SW1 , so the display will be powered only if the Pi is switched on. Hi petrov, Thanks for the response, your case is similar to what I am trying to make, except min...

Re: Portable R-Pi: Powering a screen

Hi, depends on the power requirements of the TFT, but probably it will be no problem to power it. Is the screen hdmi or composite? I,m not sure why you need to 'fool' the pi into thinking it has an hmdi device connected, but just fitting a cable wont do it. Rgds, Texy Thanks Texy :) The screen is c...

Will using a HDMI extension cable make the Pi...
