Re: Autostart file

Might the problem be that the custom LXDE-pi lxsession config is what is being used instead of the LXDE lxsession config? You could try modifying the suggested paths: /home/pi/.config/lxsession/ LXDE-pi /autostart chmod +x /home/pi/.config/lxsession/ LXDE-pi /autostart This worked! Mint Thank you. ...

I have followed a process to create a file named 'autostart' here - /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart And the file contains this - synergyc -n RaspberryPi 192...

A HDMI converter still allows you to use a case.

Re: Setting resolution and aspect ratio

No it doesn't have its own power just hdmi in and vga + audio out.

I can't Google the monitor to find the red because it's the screen only. The bezel and make/ model were removed a while back (as this is I'm an arcade cabinet) and I don't remember the make/ model, unfortunately.

Vga using hdmi to vga converter.

The monitor only has vga so the Pi has a hdmi to vga converter attached to its hdmi port and a vga connected to the monitor through that.

Just re-read the Google page on PiFBA and it mentions the FBACache_windows.zip included in the PiFBA download for Windows which I was going to try, but when you run the .exe nothing actually happens?

Re: PiFBA released - Final Burn Alpha arcade emulator

Think I will try and source a few more verisons of mslug 4 & 5 and try all of them separately to see if they work, and if not, try from the command line like you say.
