Re: RPi Remote desktop keyboard configuration

Hello,

RDP defaults to a US layout.
Generally with Windows 7, I think you have to add an entry in the registry.
I can't remember what I did to get from US to UK.
Google search 'remote desktop keyboard layout windows 7 to linux spanish '

Re: GAMBAS(basic)

Hello,

Code: Select all

wget -O - https://domotiga.nl/apt/public.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
That fixed it, in and running.
Only had to run it once.
A silly question, should I leave the sources list modified or revert?
Many thanks.
