Raspbian System Tray Icon

I'm having difficulty resizing system tray icons on Raspbian. I suspect this may be a wider issue with LXPanel. Here's some minimal Java code which demonstrates the issue: https://gist.github.com/BenjaminEHowe/85504a45d0173fd940a484e07d8bd694 . stdout declares that "The tray icon was resized to 24px...

Re: Who nicked my memory!

I appreciate that some memory is used for IO buffers etc. (hence the buffers line) - but shouldn't the total be the total amount of memory that the CPU can see - i.e. 1024MB less the memory allocated to the GPU (128MB)?

Who nicked my memory!

Hi! So, my Raspberry Pi reports a total of 862MB of memory. pi@raspberrypi:~ $ free -h total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 862M 263M 598M 43M 47M 171M -/+ buffers/cache: 44M 817M Swap: 99M 0B 99M Where does this figure come from?

Pi Zero + Camera Board = USB webcam gadget?

Given the Raspberry Pi zero now has connectivity to the camera board, is it possible to set the zero up as a USB webcam gadget?

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi, I'm Ben. I got one of the first 10,000 Pi's back in 2012 and somehow managed to avoid registering for the forum :oops: .

I'm a first year Computer Science student at the University of Reading. In my spare time (as well as messing around with tech) I enjoy the outdoors and walking.

Re: Guide: Chromium 48 on Raspbian Jessie

What's the plan (if any!) for long term security updates? 14.04 gets EOL'd in a few months (August) and the version for 16.04 appears to have unmet dependencies (I haven't tried "following" them to see if they can eventually be met - past experience suggests this could be a bit of a rabbit hole).
