Re: Will leaving my Pi on w/ fan connected be harmful?

You really want the air blowing on to the Pi for most efficient cooling. Outside (cooler air) blowing on to the CPU or CPU heatsink and then exhausting out the sides. Note it is important to have a low airflow restriction path for air to get out, or you just over pressure the air in the case and do...

Re: Will leaving my Pi on w/ fan connected be harmful?

in that picture with all the dust, is the fan being pointed at the raspberry pi or away?
does it make a difference?
until now i had no idea there could be a gross dust issue

Re: Is there any working version of Mame for RPI4 in any form?

I think this thread opens a can of worms we need a rpi4 emulation section to share what works and what doesn't. Sadly the emulation sticky is woefully out of date. Have you tried mednafen on a pi 3 or 4 it's amazing? i discovered mednafen and although it works quite well for nes/genesis/snes, i've ...

Re: autostart and minidlna and vncserver

VNC is based on vncserver-x11-serviced.service So to start it: systemctl enable vncserver-x11-serviced.service systemctl start vncserver-x11-serviced.service by default it seems to start itself automatically after being installed so what would you do to disable that? note: it seems to not start its...

autostart and minidlna and vncserver

i've read about /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart /home/<username>/.config/autostart also that if you do use the user config, you need to have the first line be /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart so it runs the default system things but i'd like to know how raspbian auto-starts up things like v...

Re: Auto go to URL after certain time

One way to close the 1st is to install and use the xdotool utility which will allow you to program keyboard/mouse entry and have it issue [Alt][F4] from the script. I don't see the point of the sleep 10 before the 1st browser load? sleep 10 to make sure he has internet connectivity maybe? for me it...

Re: cannot use dualshock3 in game, on mednaffe/mednafen

i think VNC saves control alt delete for the system you're on and doesn't send it over, so maybe it could be a similar issue with alt+shift? one thing to try would be to plug in the keyboard into the pi to see if that makes a difference I just tried this after reading your reply and it worked, than...

Re: cannot use dualshock3 in game, on mednaffe/mednafen

btw, what guide (assuming you used one) did you use to setup the wiimote? I think I have the temps under control, I use a (relatively) open Pi4 Coupe case and fan-shim. oh you know what you're doing then, i just have a default "highpi" case that came with a starter kit i didn't put on the heatsinks ...

Re: cannot use dualshock3 in game, on mednaffe/mednafen

Mednafen keyboard input works intermittently for me with the Pi4B - sometimes it works, sometimes the keys don't respond or the game freezes. I've also tried using a bluetooth Wiimote (my controller of choice with a PC), and have it working with the Pi4B for basic 'jstest-gtk' testing. I cannot get...

Re: cannot use dualshock3 in game, on mednaffe/mednafen

solved my own problem i guess: i discovered once you run a game, there is an in-game shortcut to map keys alt+shift+1 (or whatever controller port you want) i was able to assign the buttons in this and they worked my guess is the joystick is somehow a different address in whatever environment gets o...
