Re: Realtek wireless adapter not connecting in Stretch (Jessie OK)

Just updated to kernel 4.14 and unfortuately I can confirm that my script is not working any more with a failure in compilation - disappointing.

Also menu item Favourites has been lost - presumably because Places is no longer an option

Re: Stretch update knocked out my dongle

The r8188su and r8191su dongles (amongst others) use the r8712u kernel module both in jessie and stretch. r8712u is present in stretch (as in jessie) i.e. it has not been removed but it is a 'staging' driver which means it is not fully tested - and it doesn't work properly in stretch. You need to re...

Re: Stretch update knocked out my dongle

You could try installing r92su kernel module

Re: [Solved] Cannot write to USB Hard Drive in Raspbian Stretch (Jessie OK)

You are right of course. But I never needed to install it in Raspbian Jessie (of which I have done over 50 installs !) - so I am adding it to my installation script. Thanks for spotting it.

Re: Realtek wireless adapter not connecting in Stretch (Jessie OK)

I'm using my Raspberry Pi as a desktop replacement, switching off immediately after use - it's never left on without me sitting at keyboard. If I come across anything about power device management I'll post again.

Re: Realtek wireless adapter not connecting in Stretch (Jessie OK)

I wrote a script to install r92su The idea is that I could just run it again if the kernel version is changed - possibly starting some sort of detection script from ~/.config/autostart. Script probably needs a bit more debugging but attached herewith without warranty ! #!/bin/bash # Install r92su ke...

Re: Realtek wireless adapter not connecting in Stretch (Jessie OK)

I worked out how to fix this problem. It was also a problem for Fedora 25. There is a problem with the r8712u driver which is a 'staging' driver. It needs to be replaced with r92u driver. Look up 'r8712u fail fedora 25' on google to get details. As it seemed to be a kernel problem I reported it on t...

Re: Lxinput & desktop.conf Not Changing Mouse Setting - Stretch update

lxinput has now been modified in Raspbian Stretch, seeming at the behest of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, to work with libinput rather than evdev. It wasn't modified in Debian Stretch. It gives some adjustment of mouse speed but I could not get it fast enough for my 400 dpi Microsoft Intellimouse eve...

Re: Geany broken in Stretch ?

I found another solution (to my own problem !) after much searching and some experimentation :

Change the first line after [tools] in ~/.config/geany/geany.conf

to

terminal_cmd=x-terminal-emulator --command="/bin/sh %c"

and reboot

Re: Lxinput & desktop.conf Not Changing Mouse Setting

I have noticed that changing Acceleration and Sensitivity settings in Menu->Preferences->Mouse and Keyboard Settings->Mouse>Motion has no affect since libinput replaced evdev in the Raspbian derivative of Debian Jessie. I have a particular problem with my excellent classic 5 button Microsoft Intelli...
