Re: Proxy Settings

Hi! Some steps to go through or things to check: ♣ Can you resolve the hostname "proxy" on your pi? (Use nslookup or dig to check this; install the package for whichever you need) ♣ Can you ping the "proxy" host from your pi? ♣ Can you telnet to the "proxy" host at port 8080? ♣ When you say you conn...

Re: GPSD Troubles

It sounds so much like gpsd is not working, or set to the wrong tty... Is your gps consistently at /dev/ttyUSB0 all the time ? Sometimes your device will be assigned one tty when testing and everything looks good, and then it'll go and get assigned another tty when you actually hook up the rest of y...

Re: Best variable communication?

A few more options, although whatever you do, you're looking at a trade off between reliability and complexity: Use the python low-level network interface in your application This requires you to have (or build) an understanding of TCP client/server communications. The python docs can teach you ever...

Re: X Starts Automatically

True, so you might also want to look for nodm and disable that.

Looks like they came a long way btw!

Re: X Starts Automatically

Hi, Bodhi boots to a graphical login by default (I believe it is lxdm) When a system is set up in this way, it will boot to X regardless of what you've set in raspi-config. See if there's an init script you can disable in /etc/init.d (chmod -x) or to put it another way, find out what the graphical l...

Re: Network sharing

Hi! Syntax error :) You're outputting the result of "sudo echo 1" to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward using your own privileges, which is giving you the Permission Denied message. If your user lacks elevated privileges: # Either open a root shell and execute your commands there: sudo su - # or use the ...

Re: GPSD Troubles

Hi, Where are you running xgps? On the pi itself or on the ubuntu box? Reason being, gpsd only listens on localhost by default, so if you're running xgps on your ubuntu then it won't be able to receive any data from the gpsd running on your rpi. (You can use -G to listen on all interfaces instead) A...

Re: Network sharing

You will probably want to: - Define both network interfaces and their networks (in /etc/network/interaces on raspbian) - Enable IP forwarding - Set up Network Address translation (NAT) using iptables/netfilter - Set your rpi as default gateway on your other devices There is no one-size-fits-all conf...

Re: Move /var/log to USB

Hi, First, yes you would indeed need to re-create the directory structure under /var/log in your mount location. for example, if your apache uses /var/log/apache2 then you would need to create the apache2 dir on your target or apache won't be able to start. Second, make sure file permissions are ok ...

Re: shutdown with rdp logout

Depends.. How did you implement the remmina startup? Let's look at 2 options for controlling ratpoison startup behaviour: 1. Using ~/.xinitrc 2. Using ~/.ratpoisonrc 1. using ~/.xinitrc If you are using ~/.xinitrc to start ratpoison and remmina during your X initialisation sequence, then just add th...

Re: Accessing Other Computers On the Network

Linux works with mount points -- similar to mapping a network drive in windows but the network location "becomes part of" your directory structure. You may be somewhat familiar with this method of mapping network locations as a similar mechanism is also available in NTFS 5.0 and up, available since ...

Re: Graphical Application without desktop environment

Hi, There's several ways to go about this, and the best solution depends on your desires or vision. Have a look at this simplified 3-step method, for auto-booting into anything you want (mediaplayer, game emulator, ...) - add startx to rc.local using a specific user - allow that user to start an X s...

Re: Help with Quanta Touch Touchscreen

Guys, You need to also make sure xorg understands your device. Hence, do not forget to install xorg's multitouch driver ( xserver-xorg-input-multitouch ) sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-multitouch This driver is not installed by default. Also, if your screen is showing black borders , you wi...
