Sorry for that... (gizoogled Pi site)

but gizoogle.net just got me for now :) I think it adds a lot of credibility to a really bad ass project.^^

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Hi o19, can you expand on the fix a little for me please. I'm having a similar problem but the atrix is brand new so I think a fault is unlikely. I've tried adjusting brightness and volume without success. Everthing works fine with a usb keyboard plugged directly into the rpi. Is there a way of tes...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Success! After closing the connector for the ribbon cable of the keyboard unit (keyboard side), it works! I just don't know how long I'm going to use it this way now, since the dock is so modular, that I actually might want to build something less laptop-like from the parts :) Thanks a lot for all t...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

That was actually a good idea to track it down further. Controlling the brightness didn't work as well, so I'll use the coming weeked to have a look inside the dock below the keyboard. I already had removed the cover towards the rear once, but didn't see anything. Anyway, it's a great exercise...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Okay, quick update. Looks like something is wrong with my dock. I borrowed a keyboard at work and it works. Not only if it's directly connected to the Pi, but also when it's connected to the docks hub and the dock is connected to the Pi using my y-cable. Same thing for the touchpad. So if I didn't m...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Hey, spent another couple of minutes on my "no keys" problem. Since the week has been pretty busy up to now I didn't manage to organize new parts yet, but I tried a slightly different setup using a phone power supply and only the data portion of my y-cable. As I expected I got the same results as be...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Okay, if that works, I should also be able to power the Pi from the cell phone charger I used before and just use the data portion of my y-cable. Just to see if it's a power issue. Unfortunately I'm a bit short on supplies here, since I'm just finishing up an internship in the new world and already ...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Okay, thanks for the suggestions. I won't be able to check anything before Monday, but now I have at least a few things to try. Backpowering is not an option for me, since I have one of the older boards. At least not at this point in time, with some of the other options still present. What do I need...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Hey, I'm on my way copying this great idea, but I've some trouble with the keyboard. I've built myself a nice y-cable for powering and keyboard as described in various places around here. Power works fine and I get a screen over HDMI. However, I can not get my Pi to react on any keyboard input. I op...

Well, then just don#t power it via the Pi. The question is just if you can make DisplayLink work, the rest was just a bit of an outlook.

Re: Support for Mimo (DisplayLink) monitors

Hey, let me bring that up again. Did anyone already try to make a DisplayLink screen work? I'm tempted, but unfortunately I'm too limited on budget to just give it a shot. But it would make a great combo with a small solar panel and a USB keyboard. The Lenovo LT1421 claims to run at (peak) 5W, make ...
