I got my eldest one of those for Xmas - he loves it, and I got £30 off in the Amazon promotion. Didn't realise you could VNC/SSH - might have to get one myself now...Michael Meissner wrote:I got a non-HD Kindle Fire for Christmas. The Amazon app store has VNC in it, and I was able to use it to connect briefly with a laptop running Linux with normal VNC on it using my wifi router. I haven't taken much time to look in detail at present.
I suspect it will work on Raspberry Pi if you have it connected to the network. Note, the non-HD Kindle cannot handle peer to peer Wifi networks (i.e. if you put a wifi dongle on your Pi and assign IP addresses manually), but if you have an infrastructure setup (either with a wifi router, or done with the appropriate commands in Linux), it should work.
If you are just doing text work, there were SSH clients as well as VNC.
I posted the previous message when I was at work, and I'm at home now with the Kindle.jamesh wrote:Michael Meissner wrote: I got my eldest one of those for Xmas - he loves it, and I got £30 off in the Amazon promotion. Didn't realise you could VNC/SSH - might have to get one myself now...
