Re: Acces denied when copying files

You have checked that the USB HD mount is owned by your user name and that the permissions are something like 775, right? How do I check that? I would guess the permissions are OK, since I formatted the disk with the same account as where the disk is mounted? can you post up the settings Which sett...

Hi, Today I tried to copy some music from an external harddrive (mac os formatted, but I can play the mp3's from it) to an other external drive ( ext4 formatted). I can't do that, acces is denied . I tried changing the properties on the mac disk, but that failed (since I'm the "administrator" on the...

I think you'll be shocked by the RPi3B, it's got more MIPS per square centimetre than ANY other computer I've ever used. (Especially compared to my 2012 vintage smart phone.)
What are MIPS?

Re: Disk Utility

Thanks fruitoftheloom and DougieLawson.

If I understand it well, smartmoxntools and GSmartControl both offer a GUI for SMART checking.
GParted is for formatting (it's GNOME, isn't it better to use something made for xfce?

(Or I learn to use the terminal and I use fdisk or make2fs)

XFCE / GNOME/ KDE

Hi,

I was wondering: Raspbian is equipped with XFCE. When you scroll through the Add / Remove Software, you have programmes where they specify GNOME or KDE.
I think I can use all those, or not? What does it exactly mean when a certain GUI is mentionned with a program?

Kind regards

Re: Trouble installing RISCOS on Pi3

Same here... Installing Raspbarian (with Noobs and Noobs lite) and OSMC works fine.
The RiscOS image only gives the rainbow-screen, big and small.

I use the Raspberry adaptor, ampère is not the issue here.

Main Menu Editor doesn't update

My problem is that changes I make in Main Menu Editor don't show in the main menu. Both ways: selected programs don't show up and unselected, even deleted programs do show up. It drives me crazy.
