Re: I've got some problems after new update!

It should tell you which files may have been corrupted. So it seems like your menu was using the cached version of applications and that's why the new ones weren't displayed. For whatever reason, it's not checking the applications again. This isn't something we would've touched, so the problem is e...

Re: I've got some problems after new update!

There is a utility called 'debsums' which might help you. Install it and read the manpage for it. Also, try deleting ~/.cache/menus First I removed ~/.cache/menus using sudo rm -r ~/.cache/menus I then rebooted and the menu was still there but the only things on it where "Run..." (it has got a pict...

Re: I've got some problems after new update!

I don't know the state of your filesystem or what you want to achieve exactly. The main problem is that most of what's broken for you is stuff that hasn't been touched by this update at all. Try this: rm -rf ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css ~/.config/Trolltech.conf ~/.config/pcmanfm/LXDE-pi ~/.config/lxse...

Re: I've got some problems after new update!

It sounds like your sd card is corrupted or something else is messed up. A lot of what you're talking about hasn't been touched at all and wouldn't be any different from the previous release.

The upgrades are great but I can't seem to get 2 desktops. I always use two desktops when I work so it is a pain without them. The desktop pager on the menu bar only shows one desktop. If I right click the desktop pager the settings button is grayed out. I also went to the Desktop settings and could...

Re: Will these Tactile Push Buttons work with adafruit tft?

Mechanical electrical connections have trouble over time due to oxidation, 'becoming loose,' mostly. The reason for solder is to protect the connection. Solder is not a very good conductor... but it is fabulous for holding connections in place, and protecting them from oxidation. The mechanical con...

Also I have no way of soldering anything being as I have no soldering iron or what ever else you need.

For what it's worth this is what I soldered on to my PiTFT (model 1983), http://www.amazon.com/Mount-Momentary-Tactile-Switch-6x3x4-3mm/dp/B00P3FPC8W , and they work great. If that listing isn't directly usable, it may have part numbers you could chase down. I have an earlier PiTFT (the original mo...

Re: Installing Retropie straight to RPi?

I was wondering whether you can set up a portable console. My idea is that you can hook up a 7" monitor, a power pack for power supply and an onscreen keyboard and mouse to input commands. If this was possible, you would only need to take a controller and you would have a portable console. Do you t...
