Is it possible to supply power via IO pins

Are the power pins on the IO pins just outputs, or is it possible to power the Pi via them instead of the micro USB socket.

Re: Problem upgrading to Raspbian 8

I am trying to upgrade a Pi2 from Raspbian 7 to Raspbian 8 using the following commands - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -f sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade It goes through the motions without errors but when I reboot I still have Raspbian 7.

Re: TeamViewer

What's the question, other than where should you discuss it? I'm currently using the Beta version of Pi TeamViewer and really liking it. I have a number of Raspberry Pis monitoring networks in Africa and it gives me a really low cost route into those networks. My question is whether I can expand th...

Re: TeamViewer

I'm sorry if I misunderstand, but I thought this was a forum for Raspberry Pi users to share their experiences and get help. I just thought there might be other TeamViewer users around. I've seen discussion on all manner of 3rd party products on here.

Re: Teamviewer

Got it working eventually from my phone, where it did want to ask for a password, but then I tried installing it on another Pi and got the same problem even on the phone. It just seems a bit erratic, but at least I know it basically works and I will persevere.

Re: Which are the best HDMI adapters

I've used 20 of these on and off for over a year. http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/digital-video-monitor-cable-assemblies/7781882/ Over a year on and off. So far, so good. That looks remarkably like the ones I buy off Amazon for half the price, I suspect they all come from the same Chinese source. I'l...

Which are the best HDMI adapters

I make extensive use of Raspberry Pis in Kenya but virtually nobody uses HDMI monitors. As a result I use HDMI to VGA dongles a lot. However, I find all the ones I try a bit of a disaster. They get hot and they fail. I really wish the Foundation would make an adapter of their own optimally engineere...

Re: Running Epiphany from the command line

I think I understand it better now. Two comments: I *think* just putting -X or -Y into the second ssh command (the one you run from your Unix/Linux command at your home (I.e., in the UK)) should do it. Just tried that and get the following - [email protected] ~ $ epiphany & [1] 27472 [email protected] ~ $ Unable...

What you are probably looking for is: (From your Windows/Mac/Ubuntu machine): ssh -Y [email protected] ...

Re: Running Epiphany from the command line

Is there any way to launch the Epiphany browser from the command line ? Of course it needs X-Windows running. But you can use a simplified X-environment without loading the whole desktop interface. For example, install matchbox-window-manager and create a script "browse" in your user directory: #!/...

Re: Restricting access on a network

Actually, I had thought about doing exactly this a year or so ago. I wanted to give an off-site friend access to the Pi, probably for about the same reasons you do, and with about the same concerns as you have. So, although my previous post might be seen as flippant, it is the core of the solution....
