That solution fixed the problem, thanks! However, is there any way to change the settings without the described problems occuring?

Can't resize windows or close them by clicking the X after I used the 'Openbox Configuration Manager'

I used the 'Openbox Configuration Manager' application to change a few openbox settings, and now I can't resize or move windows or close them with the X, even after reverting the changes! I've had this problem before, and the only way I fixed it was by reinstalling. Do I need to reinstall again? (Th...

Re: Trouble Getting HDMI Output From RPi4

If your HDMI cable connections are flaky, the RPi is probably not reading the monitor EDID information reliably. In this case you can force a particular resolution by adding the following to config.txt on the PINN partition (create it if it doesn't exist): hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080 hdmi_group=2 h...

Re: Trouble Getting HDMI Output From RPi4

My Raspberry Pi 4 that I got yesterday has no output from HDMI 0 when using PINN, unless I leave it unplugged and plug it in after the Pi starts up. Then I get very low resolution video, with messed up colors. Note that if it is plugged in while booting, HDMI 0 gives a black screen while HDMI 1 give...

Is there any way to run the Pi at 75hz AND 1080p using HDMI? I see it is not a listed mode in the Raspberry Pi Configuration.

Re: Rpi4 On/Off Switch

You could try pi-top device manager, which fully cuts power to the pi when you click shutdown. (You can right click the battery and remove it from the panel after install and reboot). This should allow you to shut down the fan on power off.

Code: Select all

sudo apt install pt-device-manager

Raspberry Pi 3+ 55 degree idle

I left my Pi 3B+ to idle for about 15 minutes and when I came back it was at 55 degrees.
The only background tasks that might use CPU were pt-device-manager and LXPanel.
My Pi was booted to GUI.

The load averages were 0.19, 0.22, 2.32

Is 55 degrees normal for and idle temperature on the 3B+?

Note that temp_soft_limit will change the time from where it throttles down to 1200mHZ from 1525mHZ to 70 degrees Celsius. The default throttle temp is 60 degrees.

Re: Slow web browser

As others have said, the original Pi isn't really suitable for web browsing.
If you want to try doing it, open the "Run" menu from the menu, and type 'epiphany' in. Epiphany works better on the original Pi than Chromium.

Note: Epiphany is extremely slow on newer Pis

Since it seems to not connect at boot, you can enable "Wait for network at boot" in raspi-config or from the config GUI. But make sure you can connect before you do it (like boot it up, when it logs in assuming it has no network plug in your mouse / keyboard and try to connect from the menu). If it ...
