Re: Pi3D

Hi, Just a quick question. By its name "Pi3D" implies that this module is aimed at the Raspberry Pi, will it be at some point be possible to use the module on Linux, Windows and Macs, so any code will be compatible across the systems?

is it mandatory to set a static IP in raspberry Pi or it can connect to a dynamic IP if we know Raspberry Pi IP somehow.

You can use "Advanced IP Scanner" to get the IP address, thats what I do, my RPi does not have a static address.

Re: Easy access to your Pi from Windows using MobaXterm

Brilliant program, love it. For info I use "Advanced IP Scanner" which shows me everything connected to my network, its easy to spot the RPi as it will show in the manufacturer column as "Raspberry Pi Foundation". You can then right click on that line, copy the ip address and paste it into your SSH ...

Re: mapping startx screen back to my pc laptop

Just wanted to say I tried MobaXTerm after reading about it here and its absolutely brilliant. It is so much better and faster than what I was using e.g. SSH + TightVNC. Instructions are perfect, thanks :)

Re: how good is the magpi

I was very interested in the python articles, but around issue 5 I think it moves from Python 3 to Python 2, what was the reason for doing this ?

I haven't started on the tutorials yet, so if they'll still work in 3, then no problem.

Geany and Python 3

Hi, I'm just starting out with Python and wanted to use Geany as my IDE. However I noticed that when running the code it was using python 2, when I wanted it to work with Python 3. To get it to work I had to make a change in the "Build Menu" then "Set Build Commands" and change in the execute box py...

The images will be displayed directly through a projector. I've done a quick google, gthumb came up as...

Re: DVI KVM Switch for sharing monitor between RPi and PC

@Reider. looks as if you still need two monitors for the software approach to work? I guess if you were going to use software you could use SSH/VNC ?

Re: DVI KVM Switch for sharing monitor between RPi and PC

Thanks, yup a HDMI to DVI cable can be bought for a couple of pounds, think I'll probably go the KVM route. Just getting ideas at the moment, my RPi is still about 8 weeks from being delivered ;)

Re: Connecting to PC Monitor

If your monitor has a spare DVI input you can buy a cheap HDMI to DVI cable and connect that way. If your monitor has only a VGA input then you are going to need soming like what is discussed here : http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=5049 If your monitor has only one DVI and noth...

DVI KVM Switch for sharing monitor between RPi and PC

My monitor has two inputs one DVI the other VGA, at first I was thinking about using one of those DVI to VGA converters discussed in another thread. But then thought that a simple DVI switch might be a better option before toying with the idea of using a KVM switch to share screen keyboard and mouse...

Re: Raspberry pi-esqe. The new breed of computers

That one by VIA sounds interesting, but they are shipping it with Android, if Linux was to appear on it I'd be interested. I think the really beauty of the RPi though is the huge community that has grown up around it which will surely lead to continued development and inovation.

Re: After Scratch, what's next?

I'd never heard of Stencyl before and looks to be a great way to move from the simpler click together approach into proper programming. The question is though will it work on RPi ?

I'll certainly be taking a look on this on my PC though.
