Re: Minimal Kiosk Browser

Just wanted to say that KWeb has been fantastic on my Pi. Just what the Pi needed in my opinion. I do have a question. I am running this on Pi with a Pi Display in kiosk mode so I don't have a keyboard. There is a nice "Applications" page accessible from the default page. I can't figure out how to e...

Re: RPi Touchscreen - How to turn it off?

I must be missing something really obvious. Is there not a way to automatically disable the backlight after a fixed period of time. The screen turns black after a certain period. I would like the backlight to turn off too. I have updated and upgraded my OS. Also, I try this: echo 1 > /sys/class/back...

I am in the same boat here. Would like to turn the backlight and display on based on a motion sensor.

Re: Minimal Kiosk Browser

I think I know what you mean (I am not strong in HTML), but I was able to fix my problem by modifying the pages from the other server to link back to my main page. This is a bit of a hack, but works well enough for my application.

Thanks for the ideas.

New to kweb. Have it running well in kiosk mode. I read through the manual and can't find the answer to this question. For my application I need to either: 1. Change the "blank space" right click menu that pops up to include a "Home" link. OR 2. Show the back / home buttons on the screen somewhere. ...

Re: Stop motion multi-threading

Ok, so I managed to fix this. I am not 100% clear what I did to fix it. Somehow, two motion threads were starting when I initiated motion from my python script. I uninstalled the package that starts uv4l automatically with this command: sudo apt-get remove uv4l-raspicam-extras I have a feeling that ...

Stop motion multi-threading

I have an issue and I can't figure it out. Basically, whenever I start the motion daemon (the really cool detection program that is using the uv4l driver) it is starting motion twice (two threads). This is what I see: [23410504] Processing thread 0 - config file /etc/motion/motion.conf [23410504] Pr...

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

So, I placed the last line here:

Code: Select all

# imgfx = none
# metering = average
# rotation = 0
# hflip = no
# vflip = no
# shutter-speed = 0
# drc = off
extension-presence=1
in /etc/uv4l/uv4l-raspicam.conf.

And it works!

Thanks,

Re: Anemometer

After monkeying around a bit, I think I have a script that includes debounce and that works reliably. I think I need to take the anemometer for a drive to check calibration, but this gives me a reasonable idea of speed, which was the intent of this mini-project for me. def get_WindSpeed(): global T,...

Re: Anemometer

Well, my anemometer arrived in short order from InSpeed. It is very well constructed. Very impressed. Have written a short python function (as part of my weather station program) that calculates wind speed. The website says this: Converting pulses to wind speed is simple using the following formula:...
