Re: 2 Ubuntu Mate 16.04.5 issues on 3 B+

Stillwinter over at ubuntu-mate.community addressed this question by providing this github link https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2182 which explains this issue in great detail. It seems that a solution will not likely be available for 16.04. Hopefully it will be resolved in the Rpi 18.04...

Re: cifs automount permission error

I'm really not sure what to suggest re your copy from the share problem. I don't use the file manager and don't have windows 10 pro. Try a copy in a terminal and see what that does. Other than that it could a problem on the windows 10 end, the gui, the network, or something else. Your effort spent ...

Re: cifs automount permission error

I think the mount error is due to a typo I made. Sorry. It should have been a "," between "password=xxx" and "rw" not a space. Corrected version: sudo mount -t cifs -o username=xxx,password=xxx,rw,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid=pi,gid=pi,forceuid,forcegid //192.168.1.143/temp /home/pi/Temp If tha...

Re: cifs automount permission error

Bear in mind that there are two levels of permissions on the Windows side - the permissions which are set on the share itself, and the permissions which are set on the underlying files. Both need to be set to allow the remote user write access for your to actually get write access to those files ov...

Re: cifs automount permission error

The way I'd recommend working this out is not with fstab. Instead use "sudo mount ..." and "sudo umount ..." to save on reboots. Once you have it working as you want, tranlate that to an fstab entry. The gui file manager uses a completely different mechanism to mount SMB/cifs/samba shares so it's n...

Re: Booting my 3B+ from ssd finally works but...

Your other option is to use the Raspbian SD card copier. That utility can copy from an SD card to a USB drive, and it will handle larger or smaller drive sizes automatically. If your 64GB card has Raspbian Stretch Desktop installed, just boot from the card and use the card copier to clone the card ...

Re: case for Rsp3B+ with SSD on usb

In general, though, for systems I don't need a lot of storage on, I use SanDisk Ultra A1 micro SD cards. They perform well and are very affordable in 32GB size. Once you get up to 128GB, though, the price approaches SSD, and in larger sizes an SSD actually costs less. I also have a couple of the Sa...

I am running a 3 B+ with Raspbian Stretch. Is there a way to change the color of the temperature monitor panel item from lime green to anything else? I am having trouble seeing this color.
