Re: Basic GPS USB setup

I get data with :

cat /dev/ttyUSB0

but I will try that other program too.

Yes, I tried the "-n" option in gpsd.conf.

Good idea on the baud rate. I will check that. I did not have to make that change on my previous setup. I will report back.

Re: Setting Time from GPS

Ya, this is in a car, so it reboots and syncs on every boot every time the car starts. Has been working well. I am trying to get another card built to see if I can do this time sync more easily, but I am stuck at the point of getting the GPS to work. I have another thread on this topic... https://ww...

Hi Smarter People Than I, I have a card with Rasbian on it and I managed to get an Adafruit GPS unit with USB: https://www.adafruit.com/products/746 and this: https://www.adafruit.com/products/954 I wanted to understand this a bit more so I thought I will set it up again on another card from scratch...

Hmmm... it is working for me. I took out the pps related stuff from that guide. All I was looking for was a single sync when the Pi boots up. I did not need high accuracy. It seems to be working. Perhaps I did not need to compile a new ntp, but I did. Thanks for the help here. I may retry this on an...

Thanks a lot. I am not sure if it is working yet... but the only thing that confused me is this line: dtoverlay=pps-gpio,gpiopin=4 Not sure if I should put something else there instead of that line. It references pin 4 and I think that has to do with the fact that they are using a HAT. I have a usb ...

Re: Video4Linux2 driver ready!

I just reinstalled this driver and am using motion with it. All the screenshots and video files have a large text overlay that says "software by linux-projects.org". Is there a way to remove this as it blocks key parts of the screen?

Thanks,

Re: Mounting shares

Damn, you are right again Dougie. I have not tried. I meant to a few years ago, but never got around to it and since I had SMB working (until now) I never gave it a second thought. I will try now with a new USB stick and see how it goes.

Re: Mounting shares

Simple answer: stop using CIFS. Switch to NFS which is made for Linux and made for sharing and made to work with owner, group, world and permission bits. This likely is the right answer, but it will require a lot more effort than I can manage at this time. I will put it on the longer term list. PPi

I have been using Pi's for a number of years and have many, many projects. I have done many relatively advanced things with them, but the one thing that still drives me nutty is sharing folders and mounting of those shared folders from other Pi's. Right now, for instance, I am trying to bring a new ...

Re: RPi Touchscreen - How to turn it off?

Just so people know, doing this rpi-update makes the backlight-turn-off-thing work as expected.

Incidentally, I did a reinstall of Jessie (for other reasons), but still had to do the rpi-update after that to make it work again.
