Re: Sense HAT - free GPIO pins

That was very helpful, I have installed extended headers to make the GPIO pins available above the installed Sense Hat. However I still think it is an unanswered question as to what GPIO pins are available (unused by the Sense Hat). According to http://pinout.xyz/pinout/sense_hat only pins 3 & 5 are...

Re: Sense HAT - free GPIO pins

I am still a little unsure after reading this thread. Can you or can you not access GPIO pins that are not used by the Sense Hat, and if so does anyone have a list of the free pins?

Is Jessie Stable?

Just created a new SD Card to boot Jessie and am having some issue with it. For a start - where is the WiFi Config app? I can't find it and was wanting to setup my WiFi dongle. Second, I have had the web browser crash out on me three times now - never had that once with my other two Pi's. Lastly I c...

Flickering Screen in X

My Pi works just fine on the command line, however if I startx I get this flickering screen with the trash can but no other icons to work with.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/302245/corrupt.mp4

Same issue even if I remote into it with VNC which surprised me a bit.

Anyone have any ideas?
