Re: Fixing (downgrading) Python3

I managed to fix it by manually downloading (wget from https://packages.debian.org/stretch/all/) dependencies to python3-minimal package. Then I installed it (dpkg -i) and the errors are gone.

Re: Fixing (downgrading) Python3

IMO this is one of those cases where it's best to grab a new SD card, start with a new installation, allow yourself to progress with Docker, while figuring out what you need to get from the older card to the new. If only that could be easily done. I am disabled and my raspberry pi sits on top of my...

Fixing (downgrading) Python3

Hi, Months ago I was playing around with Python3, trying to build something. I think I needed a newer version of python3 than was available in repositories, so I did a stupid thing and added Buster repositories to my sources file for a bit. That left me with Python3 3.6.6 I am trying to install dock...

Re: Kodi video playback showing console/desktop in backgroun

I've had the same issue with my Pi3B car project. My simple "fix" was to change the desktop and panel backgrounds to solid black, and set the panel to minimize when not in use: Main Menu > Preferences > Appearance Settings: Desktop tab: Layout: No Image Colour: #000000 (Black) Disable (uncheck) Was...

Re: wifi extender

Do you have an idea on how to tailor it for:
internet in via eth0 (and NetworkManager cos it allows VPN connections)
extension via wlan0 (in-built wifi module of Pi3)

Pi3 + kodi + x11?

Hi, I am about to compile kodi from source. My reason for this, is that I'd like to compile it without a --disable-x11 flag - so that I am able to control kodi through vnc. Has anyone tried that before? Are there any reasons to keep the --disable-x11 flag on a pi3? I am not too advanced but this see...

Re: Dispmanx VNC Server

This question will probably sound very silly, but: how do I use this to control kodi on raspberry 3? I've tried running it from both another instance of vnc, and ssh and in both cases i get something along the lines of pi@malina:~/dispmanx_vnc $ sudo ./dispmanx_vncserver Read config file: ./dispmanx...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Video decoding

Thanks a lot! That's very helpful. It's probably the 10-bit encoding that's the issue!

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Video decoding

1080p60 H.264 has been available on Pi2 for some time with a minor GPU overclock. The Pi3 includes this overclock by default. Recent Milhouse builds of OpenELEC have included H.265 optimisations (a mixture of NEON on ARM plus GPU acceleration) for some time. Because it is a software implementation,...

VPN gui to change locations to connect to

Hi, For privacy reasons I've recently bought an IPVanish account. This account allows connecting to a 700+ server locations and I am looking for a gui that would help me choose between 20 odd ovpn config files to connect to neatly. I've tried installing PiVPN and an apache based gui for it, but said...
