Re: Cannot boot to X using startx with a user other than pi

I found my error. I had a script running in the user's ~/.profile which ran when logging in, but also ran with startx.

Hi all. I'm really stuck with this one. I'm setting up an SD card to be used in a classroom setting. I want to instruct students to use adduser to create their own area to save files.

Re: Help with setting up PIR sensors

I know this is an old post but just wanted to add a thanks to the contributors. It took a lot of searching to find this and the product manual wasn't much use to me. Just in case anyone else is stuck on this, I have made a quick diagram which should make things more clear. https://www.diigo.com/item...

Re: Introduce yourself!

<t>Hi folks, I'm studying at the moment for a PGCE in ICT. We're paying very close attention to the possible changes to how ICT/Computing is taught, being discussed in the UK. I really like the idea of a low cost simple device that is within the reach of most children in schools, and could be easily...
