New Icons in latest release

Hi,

I notice on the downloads page that Raspbian was updated on the 21st June. I see one of the updates is:

* New icons with thinner outlines

I'm away from my Pi for a while so I wonder if anyone who has updated could send a few images?

Re: The MagPi Issue 52 Christmas Tree

Thank you. Do I get a prize for spotting it!

Not on purpose then as others thought. It's amazing how one can think up good reasons for anything.

Thanks again.

If it's not a typo, what does FOHN mean, and the random /1?

The MagPi Issue 52 Christmas Tree

Hi, Rather late I know (or early for 2017), I'm looking at the Christmas tree project. On the image of the back of the tree card which do the characters mean night to the lights? What does 'FOHN' mean next to the light number? There is also 'FOHN /1', and 'FOHN 05' appears twice. Thanks https://s23....

Flash Player working in Chromium

I notice that Adobe Flash seems to be working with Chromium on the new 'skinned' LXDE Update. That's a unadvertised bonus. I'm happily watching BBC iPlayer.

Hello,

I'm planning on building the internet radio project from Chapter Nine of the Electronics Essential book:

Could someone make a suggestion as to what value potentiometers would be best?

Thanks

Re: Sense HAT

The Sense HAT comes in a silver anti-static bag, along with the following fixtures and fittings: 1 x GPIO pin extension header 4 x Hexagon stand-offs (female-to-female) 8 x M2.5 screws Check that these are all present before proceeding. Says nothing about 'please ignore if you buy from Farnell or RS'

Re: Sense HAT

Hi,

What a pity there is no mention of it on the product information page where you are encouraged to use one of the distributors and are disadvantaged as a result.

Anyone know of a good lawyer!

Re: SSRS - Blank reports

Hello,

I think you are probably pushing it trying to view SSRS Reports on a Pi. Even on work on Windows machines they only seem to work fully on IE. Stick with that if I was you.

Re: Cheap Chinese boards Ebay / Banggood

I wonder why the majority of my questions seem to go off topic? Is it my style of writing or just the way of forums.

I never mentioned buying a Arduino Copy and even gave a link to the add on I had purchased.

Re: Cheap Chinese boards Ebay / Banggood

Hi Marcus,

I'm not talking about copies of Arduino boards, I'm taking about add-on boards or modules. Please see the link in my original post.
