Re: Pi 4 | raspbain lite Buster | kodi

I installed buster on my new Pi 4 to use as my new workstation. When I installed Eclipse, I ran into a familliar problem. The 3.8 version of Eclipse that downloads with apt, crashes with the newer version of Java. I am blaming Oracle for this, because they have been adjusting things that should have...

Re: Got too many raspberries?

Amusing question :D. My solution is handouts. If i hear of a young person taking an intrest and the parents are short of funds, I offer a setup, on a lending library type plan, and i only ask for any peripherals to be returned (monitors and keyboards).

Re: Compiling Eclipse on Pi (Pi4?)

I actually have been running Eclipse on my 3B+. Some features run a little slow but for the most part it works just great. The problem I had was switching to Raspbian v3.1.1(new Buster). The new Java causes the load version of Eclipse to crash at startup. Not happy with the twiddling Oracle has been...

Problem with Eclipse

Got my new Pi4, installed the new 3.1.1 and bumped into a familliar problem. The updated (Oracle) Java, breaks the older version of Eclipse. The installed version of Eclipse needs to be updated on the site to the newer version.
Side note, not happy with Oracle running Java.

Re: Getting Qt5 with Serialport on Raspberry Pi 2

Going to give this a try as soon as I get back home. I have been looking for this solution for about three days. Seems, the Raspberry (Raspbian) installation should include this automatically, since it is designed for simple interface projects that would need it.

Not just for kids

Over the years, I have been providing computer support for my mother. We have used a few desktop units and have been through a few learning curves. My mom is now at a retirement facility and at 98 is still going strong and is sharp as a tack (I know I am very blessed about this). In the latest upgra...

Re: Terminal for Pi

Hi, Sorry for not getting back sooner, but I am in a status of new job, and visiting relatives over summer. I have seen the Pi-Top and the CEED, but I was looking for something more of a terminal option that could be detached to run the Pi headless once set ups were completed. ...and yes, I know abo...

Terminal for Pi

I was wondering if there was a project already under way to develop a flat terminal (just keyboard and display that folds flat) that can be attached either by USB or HDMI/DVI type connection. Thinking something in the 10-15" range with a standard keyboard. Mouse would run as wireless (possibly keybo...
