Re: Auto login + auto start application in Raspian Jessie Li

Hello! A few years back I made a pi powered word processor that ran Raspian Jessie, with a gui desktop and everything (I changed from the default LXDE to Mate because I liked it better, but that's besides the point). Well now I'm prototyping a new word processor powered by the PI Zero with no GUI. ...

Re: Auto login + auto start application in Raspian Jessie Li

The "Boot Options" selection in "raspi-config" gives you the choice of booting with or without password in either Pixel or the CLI. Oh snap- I missed this crucial part of the post. The raspi-config does indeed allow auto login with command line. I deleted the previous service I made for this purpos...

Re: Auto login + auto start application in Raspian Jessie Li

After switching back and forth between a few sessions, I eventually came to this. It looks like the command line (or syslog) is running INSIDE word grinder. It's giving me reports about scripts starting and stopping but it is not letting me use wordgrinder itself. Here's a screen shot: http://i.imgu...

Re: Auto login + auto start application in Raspian Jessie Li

I am not on full Jessie, I have Jessie Lite, which is command line only. So I can't use raspi-config to auto login. I was able to auto login using this code: sudo -i mkdir -pv /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d nano /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d/autologin.conf Then in the new servic...

Re: Reverse colors for abiword

Aha! I got it! That option for "screen color" is what did it! "page background color" doesn't work at all for some reason, and neither does "text color." But "Screen Color" changes the page to black and "font color" changes the text to white. Mine eyes thank you! And now they need to get Xcalib work...

Re: Reverse colors for abiword

Also: When I use config.txt to disable colorburst it absolutely ruins the display- it makes wavy lines and the images always dance and wave, even on stationary images. It is even more harmful to my eyes and mental wellbeing. The only thing I seem to be able to do is use the buttons that came with th...

Re: Reverse colors for abiword

Thanks for all the great replies! And yes, the video output is working and I know it's on the red cable and not the yellow. Here is a picture of my Raspi computer setup. As you can see the video is working fine! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/ClSfvXutVZcoeg3JcZgqdDW0GuwYaAcgii3BiAIgLPrKDUA7EnOv3a...

Re: Reverse colors for composite output

Whoops that was an accident. I meant composite. I think my brain did some association where there should not have been!

Basically I'm using the audio/video output port, and this cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004KO ... ge_o00_s00

Reverse colors for abiword (solved)

Hello, I made a little word processor computer thing with my pi2. I was running LibreOffice but it's way too heavyweight. It crashes frequently and can't open or handle larger word files. But one thing you can do in Libre Office is create a black background and white text, which, on fullscreen, was ...

Re: Raspberry Pi word processor/computer- "The Ambition Box"

wow... was that your build? thats amazing :D The only thing I would say, Arch might be a better choice of base OS if you want faster booting. But that said, amazing build :D well done Thank you :) Yep I built the box, carved it, and varnished it. I've added a solar panel to it recently but I've not...
