Re: Rasbian fails at 4.797596

Update: I rebooted again. During the boot the system started to check and repair the filesystem again (rotating slash progress indicator). A lot of numbers appeared on the screen and just when I wanted to abort this by taking the power off the login prompt appeared. I logged in and rebooted again ( ...

Re: Awesome keyboard for Raspberry Pi - Cheap

I bought a wireless keyboard at ModMyPi.com in the UK: Xenta Deluxe wireless slim chiclet keyboard. Price: GBP 9.99. I don't see it on their website anymore, but they do have a similar keyboard with a mouse (http://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/accessories/keyboards-and-mice/compact-chiclet-wireless-...

Re: Printing from Pi 2

You don't need to move your SD card around, there are other (better) ways: copy the file on a USB stick mail the file from the Pi to another computer attach a printer to the Pi => CUPS print from the Pi on a printer in your network => CUPS Just last week I installed CUPS on my Pi and now I can print...

Re: CUPS Printing

I installed CUPS last week and it works just fine with a Samsung printer (connected to a PC). My guess would be you just don't have the right printer driver. Maybe this is something: http://www.canon-europe.com/support/consumer_products/products/fax__multifunctionals/inkjet/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx5...

Re: An Raspberry Pi revision list class

Nice! I don't know if I will ever need to use it, but at least I know I can identify the different Pis when needed.

By the way, my Pis report revisions 000e (Pi 1, model B) and a01041 (Pi 2).

Re: RTF text editor

AbiWord can save in RTF (and a lot of other formats), but it is a quite heavy program (full wordprocessor) to run unless you have a Pi 2. I don't think you have a lot of options because RTF is a typical Windows format. LibreOffice of course, but that is even heavier than AbiWord. On Raspbian Leafpad...

Re: How do I learn C

How do you learn any programming language? I would say buy a book, read it and make the exercises. And of course, have your own experiments as soon as possible. Books I can recommend on C are (pick one): - Programming in C, by Stephen G. Kochan - C Programming, A Modern Approach, by K.N. King I thin...

I2C should not be a problem with the Pi, but you have to bring the 5 volts at the Picaxe down to 3.3 volts at the Pi.

Re: Which IDE do you use to develop on Pi with C++?

The first obvious answer is make, a command line tool that will make life (compiling) easier. But I assume you already know make.
An easy to use IDE is Geany. It is available on the Pi and on Windows.

Re: ncurses codeblock on raspbian

To do that you must be in the same directory as the program you want to compile.
So you need to go there first (cd command) and then start gcc.

You probably need to learn a bit about Linux first (working with directories, commands like cd, ls, pwd).
