Installed on a 16gb usb 2 stick with persistence went well and the desktop appeared. I configured the desktop and then tried to ssh into the OS using Putty from a Windo...

Re: Raspberry pi 3 not accessing websites

Well I don't know what else to suggest. You can either make a new image (save any important stuff) or try the DNS change I suggested earlier, unless someone else comes in in with a suggestion. If you look up your router help files you should be able to find out how to change the DNS, or you can rese...

Start by clearing the browser cache.

Also web browsing on the pi can be a little slow, especially with a lot of open tabs.

picorePlayer OS running Logitechmediaserver on a rpi3B or rpi3B+ can be configured to run as a wireless AC.

There are several control apps for Android.

Re: Audio Stream Low Latency

@Simple

I don't know if this would work with your Ubuntu setup, but it will cost nothing to try.

It does require that you are a Spotify Premium User.

Install this

On the pi and it should show in the Spotify Desktop as a Spotify-Connect Device.
