Re: File folder?

The files you create on your Pi, reside on a partition that is not natively readable by windows (it is an ext4 partition). As pluggy said, you'll need to find another way to read these files. But unless there is severe corruption, you should be able to recover what you want just fine. Try booting fr...

What kind of terminal are you looking to set up? Creating an icon to launch a nested X session to a remote machine might not be as straightforward as it seems; and you would need to set up XDMCP on the remote host as well, and then make everything secure..

Re: Software required for playing sound files

You can use mpeg123 or mpeg321 for this but if you're building your own app then I would recommend leveraging libmad (through pymad if you go for python). For Raspbian, respectively: # use elevated privileges for these commands, or sudo them # To install mpg123 apt-get install mpg123 # To install mp...

Re: How do i install glx visuals?

Hi,

GLX is not supported on OpenGL ES, it is purely an OpenGL extension to X.

(The OpenGL ES "equivalent" of GLX is EGL).

You might be able to pull off some software rendering but that would most likely defy the purpose..

Re: Autostart of application via script.

Hi,

Does your script run from the console?

Reason I ask is.. Midori requires a graphical environment in order to run.
You will not be able to have it start on boot unless you start a graphical environment for it to run in first.

You can use rdesktop for this :)

You'll probably have to play around with the keyboard map parameter unless you're stateside..

Also you'll need to start the X server on your rpi.
