Re: Issue with getting camera to work

Could be the power, or lack of. The camera takes an additional 200ma and your psu may not be up to it. quote="oxidizer"]I'm also not having any success getting the camera module to work.

Re: where are the commands????

I suggest you buy your cheap webcam and do your own thing in your own way then. i still thinking that this is not the correct way. The Raspicam must work perfect from the begining, like RaspberryPi. And time after, the community may program what the want. But the first is work, and the Raspicam is n...

Re: HDMI Goes Blank

The output file will be wherever you tell it to be. So if you type "-o image.jpg" it will be in the current directory that you ran the command from.

Re: Keyboard locks after taking 1 picture

Almost definitely a power problem. The camera module takes about 200mA and tends to break the camel's back as far as marginal power supplies are concerned.

Meanwhile I received one from CPC next day. Looks like RS have not any lessons from the initial Pi launch. CPC ch...

I don't believe it is possible as Ubuntu has not been ported to the right version of ARM.

Farnell lead time 4 days

I ordered a new Pi (Third one!) from Farnell on Monday, and it arrived today (Friday).
Really great. It's a Rev 2 512 one too.

Friend of mine is STILL waiting for his from RS after at least three months.

Re: Remote Windows

According to Wikipedia, "LightDM offers at least the same functionality as GDM but it has a simpler code base and does not load any GNOME libraries to work"
So it might just work for you.

Re: What was your first computer?

Nascom 1 followed by Nascom 2
Used it to create an eight channel by ten loudspeaker switching matrix for Royal Shakespeare Company's Pit theatre at the Barbican. Written in Z80 assembler in 2kB of RAM.
I belive it was in use for many years.
