roll back

I apt-get upgraded yesterday and now my omxplayer won't let me have my desktop back until it has finished playing or I quit it. Is there any way of rolling back to the version I had the day before? It is handy to be able to pause playback and deal with email, facebook etc. and then resume playback. ...

Re: compiler flags

It depends, probably not a lot other than potentially stopping the code from running on the original RPis. It does allow the compiler to use the extra instructions available but you won't notice much unless your code can make use of NEON (the SIMD instructions) and you probably need to pass more op...

compiler flags

Does it make a difference when compiling for pi2 if you change -march=armv6zk to -march=armv7-a in the makefile?

Re: New UI (2015-05-05) discussion thread

The change was originally made because a titlebar could end up under the panel, under some conditions. The file you want to edit is ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml one of the layer parameters needs to be changed from below to above. I think this is the snippet: <application name="panel" type="dock...

Re: New UI (2015-05-05) discussion thread

I use all the screen and hide the taskbar until I need it. Moving the mouse to the bottom of the screen makes the taskbar pop up. Since the new desktop update, the taskbar still pops up, but it is now behind the window with the focus, rather than in front of it as it always was before. This makes th...

Re: New Raspbian Interface Taskbar issue when not "pi"

I too am pi, but my hidden taskbar now pops under, rather than over when I move the mouse to the bottom of the screen.

I just want my taskbar to be on top again, it's pretty pointless popping up under the foreground window.

Task Bar Z-Order

I run rdesktop, I use all the screen but not in fullscreen mode. I push the title bar of the window over the edge of the screen at the top and my rdesktop task bar is at the bottom of the screen, (like all good task bars should be). Now normally I just move the mouse to the bottom of the screen and ...

Re: taskbar

MrEngman, I owe you an appology, your cure for rolling back the kernel did work. The cifs problem was of my own making and had nothing to do with my upgrade woes. My pi is now stable again and except for the behaviour of the taskbar, works pretty much as expected. I probably did do an apt-get update...

Re: taskbar

I've also got a new icon down by the clock that tells me that dhcpcd is not running and it's managed to crash 5 times in the last hour since I did this rpi-update.
I suppose there is no roll back to the kernel where uptime was measured in weeks and not minutes?

taskbar

I've just upgraded to the 4.0.7 kernel. As well as upgrading the kernel version, I also had my desktop upgraded to a new colour with a new logo, and the taskbar decided to move to the top of the screen as an extra bonus. I right clicked on the taskbar, brought up the menu, made it go back to the bot...

multicoloured square (solved)

I just 'upgraded' to a pi2, everything works as before but I now have a multicoloured square that keeps flashing up in the top right hand corner of the screen, the meaning of which totally escapes me. I tried searching for the answer but I have struggled to define the correct search terms. The 4 ras...

Does this mean I can't compile the program that requires libudev1? Or will libudev0 work instead?

Re: _ip_addresses

Thanks for that Paeryn, although I'm not feeling the waves of enlightenment washing over me that I was expecting.
I'm sure it has a use and can be coerced into returning something given the right invocation parameters.
Anyone got an example of its use?
