Use pin#2 (5V0) and #6 (GND) on the GPIO header.
BEWARE: All of the power protection (i.e. reverse voltage, mild over-voltage, etc.) is bypassed with the GPIO header! You MUST provide a stable, regulated 5V!

LXDE Menu Scroll Problem

I have downsized my monitor to one with a MUCH smaller resolution, and I am having issues with windows appearing too large and a few other problems. The menu button (the start-menu esque one) has an issue where all of the icons fit on the screen, but I must scroll it all the way down to see any: htt...

Re: Win95 on real Raspi

Now, with some images, as well as after using apt-get install qemu, a window pops up as if booting, then ...

Re: Win95 on real Raspi

Quite stellar. I think this forces my hand to buy a Pi 2... Question that I haven't seen the answer to: How do you do this for XP? I see on the first page for 95, but not XP. This is quite cool! With all those steps, perhaps it would be easier to make a shell script to do it all. If anybody would li...

Auto-run Scripts on Boot

I want to run a Bash script on boot, but without needing to login. How would I go about doing this?

(Note: I need sudo privileges to halt properly at the end. Obviously, I will ctrl-c out of the script on normal boot!)

Storing Minecraft 'cubes' to .txt files

I am working on a random dungeon creator in Minecraft that randomly picks rooms from an array, then arranges them in a grid to create a new dungeon each time you run the script. However, I need a way to store the rooms in a 12x12x5 cube, then retrieve them later. How can I: A. 'Scan' a cube of block...

BSNES doesn't load

I installed the BSNES package onto my Pi, but when I run it on LXDE, it just takes up 100% of the CPU, brings up the process bsnes-bin, and never loads. Is something wrong?

Re: Programming Atmel with Arduino from Pi

sudo avrdude -c arduino -p m324p -P /dev/ttyACM0 When I run this, it pauses, the Mega resets, and the same error occurs. Honestly, what is wrong here? I tried -c arduinoisp, and avrdude said that the ID didn't exist. Clearly the Arduino is receiving something, since the RX LED blinks, and the modul...

Re: Programming Atmel with Arduino from Pi

Both tutorials describe adding a bootloader to the chip. I don't want that. Plus, all they seem to support is the 328p, when I am using ...

Re: Programming Atmel with Arduino from Pi

My Mega is on /dev/ttyACM0

Editing your 2nd input gave me this:

Code: Select all

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

avrdude done. Thank you.

I recently got a 32GB microSD card for Christmas, and I have formatted it with NOOBS and Raspbian, but when I look at the contents in the LXDE file manager, I notice it says 24GB free of 27.8GB First off, I know that it doesn't take 8GB of data to store Raspbian - I've done it on ~3GB before on a 4G...

It features two USB ports, an audio port, and 19 pins (the third row is keyed with one missing) for connecting to a computer. The audio is unimportant, but the...

It even auto-partitions correctly without the official...
