Desktop icon font size

I have recently started using my Pi after making a case for it and it's connections. On a first boot for a while, I noticed the font is small on the screen, I have found out how to adjust everything other than the icon fonts on the desktop. However, when playing about, I right clicked on the desktop...

Re: What is the new power plug called on the model B+

The B+ uses the same micro USB connector as the A and B. Gr. Dirk. Thank you for your quick response. This has proven very useful, but after some consideration, I think it may be better to wire a new plug onto it. Thanks once again, Lewis. Um...why? Do you mean that you intend to remove the microUS...

<ANSWERED> What is the new power plug called on the model B+

Hello, I have a Raspberry Pi B+ and was wondering what the name of the jack and plug used to power the pi was called. On the A and B models, I believe those to use micro USB jacks, but the new pi is different. The reason I want to know is so I can wire a power switch into the extension while still m...

Hello,this is my first Raspberry Pi project and I am planning to build a portable computer. The only problem I can see is wiring the screen to the RCA connector. When you desolder the RCA connector there are three contacts for soldering. The screen is composite and has two terminals for signal. I wo...
