Perhaps I will just try the standard XP format command which I have used previously.


You could download and burn a live linux dvd. Boot of that and use the linux tools to create your sd card :-)

Ubuntu Mate is meant to be used graphically. That is to say you need a monitor and keyboard to use it.
Quote from the ubuntu mate website.
NOTE! There are no predefined user accounts. The first time you boot one of the desktop images it will run through a setup wizard where you can create your own user account and configure your regional settings.

No user account by default means you cannot login remotely. There is no user to log in as.

Hi

I was wondering will my Pi be damaged if I never shut it down/if I just keep it running indefinitely?

some users have reported multi-year run times on some of their pi's, you should be OK.

Pi3 may need a heat sink.

Hi. I have RPi 1 model B and B+ hardware running about 29 months and I have RPi 2 hardware that has been running 13 months. Out of a total of 10 RPIs operating pretty much continuously for a year or more, I have had no failures, but one scare which turned out to be the power supply, not the RPi. None of them use any aftermarket heatsinks or fans. Half of my Pis are in the little plastic cases https://www.adafruit.com/products/1997 you can buy, half are in larger plastic enclosures. All are operating indoors at normal room temperature for humans, no unusual or special environmental conditions.

thanks to let me know how to start with Raspberry Pi !, the attached resources are really very informative. I like to read more about raspberry in details to get grip in this.

Yeah thanks @abishur. Very helpful notes indeed - even a few years later after your initial post! :D

Hi guys,

I just got my raspberry pi, I tried to run the 'startx' and showed up the message 'FATAL: Module g2d_23 not found.'. Even though I have read that this can be ignored, nothing happens.... I don't get a nice screen with a raspberry like I've seen in other places. Can someone take me through this, please? (really frying my newbie brain here :roll: :) )

Thanks
