Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

I don't think there is a non-cli way to do it, I used sudo apt-get install wicd which has a gui and worked well, hope this helps. Thanks, but of course the problem is how to use apt-get before the network is working ! Is there somewhere a how-to for CLI network config ? Ron. Doh! Sorry my bad, I wa...

Cheers, Ron, on the banks of the Paraguay River. I don't think there is a non-cli way to do it, I used sudo apt-get insta...

Re: Anyone have wifi dongle without external power?

I know how to get round it via terminal, but it could be bit confusing, don't know if this is anything to do with setting it to boot straight into Desksto...

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

Awesome work guys, I have been lurking for quite a while and tried out most of the distro's (well the one's with a gui....), I am not a "noob" but nor am I as advanced as some, I am a windoze programmer by trade, or more by accident and tbh, I hate it, as someone who learned programming back when a ...

Re: Anyone have wifi dongle without external power?

Just about to give this a go on new raspbian image, will let you know how it goes, have found most powered hubs to cause issues to date, but I think I am just unlucky with my hubs that are lying around..... :roll:

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image
