Re: Absolute newbie to Raspberry Pi, Need advice on booting a di

What OS are you using to do the formatting? For example, I use Mac OS X. I have an app called "Pi Filler". It works great. I used the same image you're trying to use and it works fine on RPi 3B. However, I don't have HDMI audio output and over at the Kali Forum, no one seems to have a good solution ...

Re: Connect Bluetooth Keyboard at boot

First you need to know the address of the bluetooth device you want to connect. You can find that by typing in bluetoothctl and it will list any devices you've paired already. Once you have the address, type in the following command to edit root's crontab: sudo crontab -e That will allow you to add...

Re: Connect Bluetooth Keyboard at boot

Well, a coupla things you could try. You can write a bash script to call bluetoothctl and pipe in the connect command. Put that in cron as a @reboot script. Or, get the test-device Python script from the BlueZ source tree and set that up to connect in cron. Maybe you can show me how to do this? :ro...

First, my apologies. I'm not trying to come off as rude. Second, If I'm posting questions here that probably means I couldn't find the answer by using a search engine. Third, I agree there's other things going on in life, but if you take the time to attempt to help someone here, you should follow-up.
