Re: Wifi not working

Everything looks good to me. After the last picture I usually hit connect again and x it off. Are you able to sudo apt-get update in the command line? Does your wifi dongle have a light on it? Sometimes I try a web page it don't work and I look down and the dongle light is out.

Re: command line text copy and paste

I would still have to type the file path to the sh file that has to be at least one folder away from pi or it may mess something up like my python files did. Is there a gui environment like a text editor that has the same properties as those little boxes on the forum that you just typed that sh info...

command line text copy and paste

I wanted to save command line text in my text editor and my pi won't let me. Then I tried to copy text from the editor and use it in the command line and that failed too. So what is the easiest way to save text for the command line? My example is running the big bucks bunny demo because the file pat...

Re: question about looping instructional videos from youtube

I checked out livestreamer and it's said to work with omxplayer and can livestream something as fickle as ustream so that's real neat.

Re: Minecraft Pi Edition not working

So all you have to do is hold in shift on boot and delete the upgrade and it starts working again? The only reason I upgraded was to get the new sonic pi and I heard yet another version is coming up. I've been hearing bad things about upgrade since forever and I finally try it and this happens.

Re: question about looping instructional videos from youtube

If you had vlc you could watch YouTube videos and play them in a playlist and record them for offline use and play them at slow speed and a bunch of other stuff. Plus if you got vlc working you would be very popular. The chip guys advertise that it's a possibility with their micro computer and the p...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 coming up??

Vga is a million times better than hooking it up to an sdtv. It is definitely not pointless it's functional. HDTVs are too big, 7 inch displays are too small, vga monitors are the perfect size. There is a surplus of like new hd vga monitors being sold cheap right now my point is the adapters cost as...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 coming up??

I am bummed about the raspberry pi not getting super powerful but it makes sense. Also I wonder about the whole USB 3 issue on the next version. I predict the raspberry pi 3 will be out in 2016. I can't wait for the software acceleration. I hope they will add more languages to raspbian at some point...

Sonic pi can be learned here: https://youtu.be/4BPKaHV7Q5U and in the help menu. There are wolfram math books on Amazon. And pick up a copy of the ma...
