Re: Unable to change file permissions

Do you have ntfs-3g installed?: dpkg -s ntfs-3g If not, install ntfs-3g: apt-get install ntfs-3g Thank you, I will install that when I reflash the SD card which is really messed now. Can you suggest the fstab entry? I don't want to mess it up again trying the many suggestions I see. I have two othe...

Re: Unable to change file permissions

Solved by using the mount:

Code: Select all

sudo mount -t ntfs -o umask=022,exec,uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sda2 /media/USBDongle1
EDIT: but what is the fstab entry now?

Thought is was solved but cannot make folders/files.

Re: Lost HDMI output without apparent reason

I used the hotplug setting. As for the circumstances of when I connect the HDMI, sometimes th Pi is powered, sometimes, not. Sometimes the TV is on, sometimes not.

Re: Lost HDMI output without apparent reason

When I want to use one of the Pi's, most times I just ssh into it and don't bother with the HDMI output. However, I connect ...

I have 2 Raspberry Pi's each having a different but similar use. Both share one HDMI connection to a TV so are used one at a time perhaps once a month for a short time then shut-down. One of the Pi's has stopped producing an HDMI picture output to the TV but does change the TV channel. The other PI,...

makem, Given that your OS was Stretch why did you do a dist-upgrade? I presume you mean the AstrillVPN. As far as I can make out that is a closed source VPN and is only available as binaries for Intel x86 architecture machines (Barring apps for Android/iOS). As such it will not run on a Raspberry P...

Re: Is it possible to VNC securely from a mobile phone?

Raspbian comes with a RealVNC server installed. There is an Android VNC client app and probably one for the other OS' too. I think the encryption in RealVNC is more than adequate for your phone.

I think I will stick with bVNC having paid for it! Need to find a manual or guidance though.

Apparently x11vnc is the way to go. I've used that in the past.
