Re: Firefox 58 on Raspbian Jessie?

Firefox-ESR is available from the repositories, but the default chromium-browser is better: sudo apt update sudo apt install firefox-esr https://packages.debian.org/stretch/firefox-esr What you attempted to install is for x86 cpu architecture, which the RPi does not have.. Google Chrome is also not...

Firefox 58 on Raspbian Jessie?

Hello, I personally dislike Chrome, it is slower than Firefox (at least on any of my other Windows computers), and it just isn't a great choice for a default Raspbian browser. So, I tried installing and running Firefox 58.0 from here , but then I noticed some of the packages that are required to run...

Re: Toggling OpenGL Driver w/o raspi-config?

Sorry I have no idea what you're asking. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. I'm trying to find what I should replace $SYSTEMD with here (also code from raspi-config): # Boot to CLI if [ $SYSTEMD -eq 1 ]; then systemctl set-default multi-user.target ln -fs /etc/systemd/system/autologin@.service /etc/syste...

Re: Toggling OpenGL Driver w/o raspi-config?

Turn the code from /usr/bin/raspi-config into three functions ... You can then call any one of those to set full vc4-kms-v3d call do_G1(), fake vc4-fkms-v3d call do_G2() or legacy call do_G3() from your main line code. Since you're editing /boot/config.txt you'll need to run as root (sudo) Thank yo...

Re: Toggling OpenGL Driver w/o raspi-config?

Read /usr/bin/raspi-config it's a bash shell script, you should be able to see how it makes the change. You can also "source" /usr/bin/raspi-config and use the functions in it in your own programs (without using the menus). https://bash.cyberciti.biz/guide/Source_command #!/bin/sh # Enable # if ! g...

Toggling GL and Boot Mode w/o raspi-config

Do you use RetroPie and PIXEL at the same time? Do you not want to to use raspi-config to toggle GL and boot mode every time? Do you prefer to save time and sanity? Well, fear not, this script is for you! Thank you, DougieLawson , for making it happen! :) How to use: Copy the code below and paste it...

Re: STICKY: Setting up HDMI output when video output is wrong.

Hello. I am constantly getting no HDMI output after shutting down my Pi 3 and turning it back on. I had to edit the config.txt many times only to have the HDMI output reset again after I shut the Pi down. Restarting doesn't change this, though. What did you change in config.txt and did the changes ...

Re: Moving Program Data to Thumb Drive?

You can move nearly everything to a thumb drive. What you wanted to say is that I should make my Pi boot in the thumb drive or a hard disk and have everything on it, am I right? It isn't really what I meant in my post, but if it's the only solution I might go with that. What I exactly meant is to h...

Moving Program Data to Thumb Drive?

Hello. I was doing a cleanup on my SD card I use for my Pi, and went into a problem. For now I have only cleaned up /home/pi/ by deleting large and unnessecary things, and moving other stuff that I don't want to lose to my thumb drive. But, the problem is, Chrome takes around 100 MB of data, and I w...
