Re: CUPS Printing

I installed CUPS last week and it works just fine with a Samsung printer (connected to a PC). My guess would be you just don't have the right printer driver. Maybe this is something: http://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/fax__multifunctionals/inkjet/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx5...

Re: Icedove email app

sudo apt-get install icedove Yes, that works. It will install Icedove, the unbranded Debian version of Thunderbird. Icedove works well on my Pi 2. Claws-mail ( sudo apt-get install claws-mail ) is a lightweight alternative, I use that on my Pi 1. Setting up an email adress in Icedove is easy, becau...

Re: An Raspberry Pi revision list class

Nice! I don't know if I will ever need to use it, but at least I know I can identify the different Pis when needed.

By the way, my Pis report revisions 000e (Pi 1, model B) and a01041 (Pi 2).

Rookmelder op Twitter

In de Volkskrant van zaterdag 28 februari, rubriek De Maakbare Wereld, staat een leuk artikel over een rookmelder die Twitter-berichten geeft met behulp van een Raspberry Pi. Het zal wel iets meer tijd in beslag nemen dan 5 minuten solderen en een half uur stoeien met de software, zoals in het artik...

Re: RTF text editor

Just browsing through Synaptic on my PC (Linux Mint, searching for RTF) I found unrtf (convertor), gourmet (recipe manager, should be interesting for you), and catdoc (convertor).

Re: RTF text editor

AbiWord can save in RTF (and a lot of other formats), but it is a quite heavy program (full wordprocessor) to run unless you have a Pi 2. I don't think you have a lot of options because RTF is a typical Windows format. LibreOffice of course, but that is even heavier than AbiWord. On Raspbian Leafpad...

Re: How do I learn C

How do you learn any programming language? I would say buy a book, read it and make the exercises. And of course, have your own experiments as soon as possible. Books I can recommend on C are (pick one): - Programming in C, by Stephen G. Kochan - C Programming, A Modern Approach, by K.N. King I thin...

Re: I2C to a Picaxe computer

I2C should not be a problem with the Pi, but you have to bring the 5 volts at the Picaxe down to 3.3 volts at the Pi.

Re: Which IDE do you use to develop on Pi with C++?

The first obvious answer is make, a command line tool that will make life (compiling) easier. But I assume you already know make.
An easy to use IDE is Geany. It is available on the Pi and on Windows.

Re: ncurses codeblock on raspbian

To do that you must be in the same directory as the program you want to compile.
So you need to go there first (cd command) and then start gcc.

You probably need to learn a bit about Linux first (working with directories, commands like cd, ls, pwd).

Re: ncurses codeblock on raspbian

This should work: sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev gcc -o nctest nctest.c -lncurses The first line installs the complete ncurses package, including library and header files (and puts them somewhere the compiler and linker can find them). The second line compiles the program 'nctest.c' and links ...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi, My name is Jacco, I am from the Netherlands and I have owned a Raspberry Pi for a year now, without doing much with it. But that is about to change, I have plans to do some temperature measuring and to control a robot arm (MeArm) with the Pi. I already know Linux a bit (I use Debian and Mint at ...
