Re: $Isusb shows no results

if you are actually typing the $, don't do that. the command is just lsusb. The $ just means that it can be run as a regular user.

Re: Configurartion and raspi-config

I'm not sure exactly how the distro you are using works for sure, but you can usually edit the file ~/.xinitrc. comment out the lxde line and add

Code: Select all

exec startxfce4
to the bottom of the file and see if that works for you.

Re: "Beginners" put off...

I have been running Linux for a few years and find it more stable than Windows on my $1400 PC with good specs. Linux is also the main OS for servers in the world which requires stability.

Re: X-Server on Arch Linux ARM

Arch is all about building your system, there is no image that I am aware of that comes with anything other than the base install. If you are following the archwiki, I would start at the bottom with "3. extra" in the beginner guide since most of the other stuff is already installed.

Re: Cant see Pi on Windows home network

Best way I know of is to edit the smb.conf file to tell samba what to share. IIRC it should be in /etc/samba/smb.conf or somewhere close to that.

Re: Tablets

You may be able to get a touchscreen to work and to get a case that holds the touchscreen and pi in a somewhat slim package, but you will probably not get Ubuntu to run on the PI as Cononical doesn't support any arm processors anymore.

Linux doesn't like spaces. I would suggest changing that folder name to have an underscore or dash instead of a space, then you should be fine.

The couple things I have installed with yaourt have only taken 10-15 minutes max to install. So I don't think it would take all day. Compiling something like android would probably take the better part of a week though.
