Re: Raspberry Pi on an Atrix Lapdock

Thanks for posting this. I have only been able to get the Raspberry Pi 4 working with this screen/keyboard in HDMI safe mode until I added this to the config.txt file.

Correct way to use 5V relay module with Raspberry Pi

I purchased one of these relays from eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/5V-One-1-Channel-Relay-Module-Board-Shield-For-PIC-AVR-DSP-ARM-MCU-Arduino-/310566336050 I wanted this to control a 20 Watt 110V heating pad. I did not appreciate the fact that it was a low-level signal relay & that the signal needs ...

Re: Photo frame with FBI

What happens if you kill the 1st fbi after you have run the 2nd copy?.. Thanks for the suggestion but I could not get this to work. I ended up using a suggestion I came across. They used the '--cachemem 0' option for fbi. This forces fbi to re-read the images but only if more than 3 image names are...

Realtek based wifi (RTL8188CUS) works well but has had issues with hostapd - at least in previous versions of Raspbian. I saw a ...

Re: Photo frame with FBI

Thanks for the reply. I used to use RISC OS a long time ago. I was very sad when the Acorn went out of business. Unfortunately, I would have to relearn how the RISC OS & Basic programming work from scratch. The other issue is the other other items that go along with it. I only posted a small fractio...

Photo frame with FBI

I want to turn an old 1st generation raspberry pi into a photo frame without resorting to X-Windows. The two options seems to be using either fbi or fim. Ideally, I would like a program that resizes & renders an image to the framebuffer. It should then exit silently. I would like to control the imag...
