Re: Convert Raspbian Stretch Lite to video-output

Hi Fred, you can go to raspi-config and install VNC , enable it and then put the free viewer on your Windows computer https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/viewer/ I have done much the same as yourself from a Stretch-Lite install. I used the Chromium Browser in the desktop and a few other bits...

Re: Spotify Music Player for RPI?

You will need a Premium account for these and there is no guarentee against any breakage, but I have used them in the past.

Re: New User - Advise please on building a music server/player

@citycentrefox My recommendation is for Logitech Media Server. It will run on a raspberry pi without problem. The OS with the easiest set up is piCorePlayer. It is also possible to use Raspbian Stretch and/or Stretch-Lite with Squeezelite player. Max2Play also offer a suitable OS and there is MoOde...

Hi Dougie I got it from here, https://github.com/Drewsif/PiShrink I have a rpi 3B+ with a 64Gb card and mostly use it to reduce the file size on any OS images I make for different media servers (mostly for LMS). I just make a new directory on the pi, do the install and chmod and then add which ever ...

My short term solution, until I get a better handle on the CLI and Bash shell scripting, is to install the full Raspbian," sudo apt-get remove --purge" all of the educational programs and games, This approach reminds me of a mechanic, popping the hood, and revving the engine from the other side o...

Re: Unable to clone SD card (Mac)

@Bob Smith

when you have made your copy have a look at "pishrink".

I run it on a rpi3b+ with Stretch desktop (although I do use it in headless mode most of the time).

It is really simple to use (there are tutorials on't web) and it really does reduce the file size.

Hope this is helpful

I understand that the spotify app is not supported for the pi and there are several mediocre solutions/alternatives. So my conclusion is that spotify on rpi is just... not finished yet.
