Re: Broken USB on Pi Zero W

I'm not that happy with any of my power adapters. I have a Microsoft and Blackberry adapter. Both output under 1A. I've read that the Pi Zero has a far lower draw than the other devices. So assume that as unloaded this wouldn't be an issue. Both Pi Zero W boards I've had, have previously worked with...

Re: SSH not working on Pi Zero W

With Raspbian, I had SSH working on my Pi0W, by placing an empty file called ssh in the boot partition.

Re: HOWTO: create an SD image to use as a master

I assume you meant GB rather than MB?

My guess is, that on first boot, the second partition is resized to the size of the card.

Re: Broken USB on Pi Zero W

@Hendrix, no hub used. It's not needed for one peripheral at a time is it? The attraction of the Pi 0 W in part. is that once setup, I might not need any peripherals connected.

Broken USB on Pi Zero W

Hi there, I'm on my second Pi0W, and it looks as if I've lost the ability to use the USB port again. On my first machine, it worked for a limited time, and on the second I've had a keyboard, network adapter, mouse and a USB storage stick attached and working. Today my Pi started doing odd things, wo...

Re: WiFi channel 13 issues on Zero W

I have a Pi Zero W, with Rasbian (full) (2017 02 16), and I've had it connect on Channel 13 to the local network, and have been SSHing to it. Just tried LibreElec 8.0.0.1, and it didn't appear to identify my access point. I changed to Channel 11, following this thread, and it finally showed. But it ...

Re: How do I keyboard focus on the task bar applets?

Thanks. I understand that Raspbian's pixel desktop is LXDE. I could find feature requests for similar functionality (using the keyboard on the panel), for both LXDE and XFCE (back in 2012). I did notice there was a CLI alternative to the GUI raspbian config tool, but couldn't find any references to ...

How do I keyboard focus on the task bar applets?

First time I went to use Raspbian on the Pi Zero W, I connected a keyboard and monitor via usb and hdmi. And booted into the OS. But I couldn't work out if there was an easy way to setup the WIFI network. I had a hunch that you could perhaps click on task bar icons, but I couldn't work out how to do...

Re: Hot plug USB on Pi Zero W

My first instinct was to plug in the Pi Zero and boot Raspbian to set a few things up with keyboard and monitor attached (I hadn't read any headless guides then). I wanted to configure WIFI and turn on SSH. After that I planned to disconnect the keyboard and control remotely. Later perhaps plugging ...

Hot plug USB on Pi Zero W

Hi, I read an older post that warned against USB hot swapping on a Pi Zero. Does this advice still hold? Got a Pi zero and flashed an SD card with Raspbian. Connected keyboard and monitor, via usb and hdmi, turned on. Booted fine. After setting up the network, went to swap the keyboard for a USB eth...
