Re: random numbering of two USB audio devices

I believe in your case you may be able to just reference your soundcard by name, ALSA, Audio, Device, instead of the number. These very generic names caused me confusion for a long time, especially the RPi using ALSA. The article you quoted has multiple USB devices of the same type causing the card ...

hi Oli4, I use WinSCP on my PC as "the view" for my RPi development. Left hand pane are the files on my PC git directory, and the right pane are the files on my RPi. WinSCP allows you to sync in either direction. Double-click on a file in the RPi pane and Notepad++ opens the file. Do your edits and ...

Re: Error when attempting to format new SD card.

Your SD card may indeed be faulty but I think the problem is "I've followed every set of directions I have found so far". :lol: Linux Mint 17.3 According to what I'm reading it's always emphasized that you need to format the SD card fi...

The terms passphrase and password are used interchangeably. Confusing to me.

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

You could use wpa_passphrase to generate a passphrase from your SSID and password. This should get around special characters and is a little more secure as your wifi password is not stored anywhere. wpa_supplicant.conf will then have a line like this: psk=6554d2e9bbf18ce37dd95fffc7a6d25d9ef54e317dbd...

Re: script help

Hi TheRealDusk, By "your way" I was inferring the way you understand the best. Your real problem is getting your wifi dongles to work properly in the first place. My tip: I would use "-Dnl80211,wext" instead of "-D wext" is a good one I believe. Most wifi adaptors are moving from "wext" to "nl80211"...

hi TheRealDusk, You can see by the responses there are lots of ways of doing this. If you want to do it "your" way you need use $A to use contents of A. Also, if the "then" is on the same line it needs a ; before it. So if grep "ESSID" A then should be if echo $A | grep "ESSID"; then 1. Do you have ...
