Re: Buster DHCP configured NTP servers

Bumping this as I've had some more time to work out how to get this issue fixed the proper way. Initially I couldn't get epoch1970's suggestion of adding the option ntp_servers to /etc/dhcpcd.conf working but now it's all sorted. Firstly (Thanks epoch1970) We need to get dhcpcd requesting the ntp-se...

Re: Buster DHCP configured NTP servers

After doing some more research it would appear that network manager was causing issues As described here https://askubuntu.com/questions/138373/ubuntu-11-10-dhclient-enter-hook-d-scripts-not-invoked in the answer posted by Alvar (Annoyingly I have no rep there so can't upvote).

Buster DHCP configured NTP servers

I'm wondering what I need to do to enable either NTP or timesyncd to get their NTP servers from DHCP handout. I have a working DHCP server which is handing out the correct options to an older version of Raspbian but in a new Buster install I cannot seem to get it working. I've tried adding "UseNTP=t...

Re: Disable all boot text in Buster

Unfortunately none of the suggestions so far have got rid of all the text. I've decided to go a different way and instead of using fbi /fmi to swap through several images on boot I've replaced the image in /usr/share/plymouth/themes/pix/splash.png with some full screen branding, removed the panel by...

Re: DIsable all boot text in Buster

Annoyingly less fun work caught up with me. I'm booting into the GUI with the intention of running a kiosk style application on chrome. The reason I need the text gone is that I want a logo / loading screen up whilst the device starts chrome. I had been doing this using fbi but with the boot text th...

Current /boot/cmdline.txt that's not working dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=serial0,115200 console=tty3 root=PARTUUID=4df3c5f0-02 rootfstype...

Re: Is it possible to connect a domain to a raspberry pi without exposing my PI address?

If you want to run a public server the you need to give out the IP that server sits behind. You can use DNS to connect but all that does is resolve a friendly name to an IP. You will also need to use with a static IP or a Dynamic DNS service so that the IP doesn't change. Along with all this you wil...

Re: viewonly and scale with vncserver-x11-serviced

Nice One, the documentation you provided gave me the following which deals with the view only bit.
/etc/vnc/config.d/common.custom

Code: Select all

AcceptPointerEvents=FALSE
AcceptKeyEvents=FALSE
Still looking into how to scale things :)

viewonly and scale with vncserver-x11-serviced

I'm trying to get the VNC server to start in viewonly mode with a scale of 0.25x0.25 but can't see exactly where this has to be set. In the older OS I would start VNC with the -viewonly switch etc but /usr/bin/vncserver-x11-serviced doesn't take these options. I've tried adding configuration to the ...
