White line across top of LXDE environment

There is basically a white line across the top of the desktop environment, everything is accessable but the line can get a bit annoying at time, it isn't massively big but can get in the way of things.

Anyone know how to fix, and why it occurs?

Thanks!

I searched high and low on Google to get this to work, and I'll show you how I got it to work. Instead of using the script in the Rasberry Pi wiki, use this one provided by "Penguin Tutors": #!/bin/sh # /etc/init.d/tightvncserver # Customised by Stewart Watkiss http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/tigh...

He's referring to the computer that he is connecting to - so it's likely, as you mention, that it will be your PC's username and password.

VNC Server to Boot on Logged In User

There is a script that makes the script start on boot, but when I connect to the Pi from my PC it connects to the "root' desktop instead, what I want it to do is the script to boot up when I login to my username which are my initals "jjones." So how can I do this? The script is this: ### BEGIN INIT ...

Re: Overclocking

Is it something risky to overclock the Raspberry Pi? I wouldn't mind overclocking the CPU to increase Quake III performance. My best guess is that with overclocking and overvolting it will still run reliably for years. It might not run for as many years, as if you didn't overclock/overvolt, but in ...

Re: Static I.P. on the Pi

If you want to configure a static IP address, search the internet for tutorials on IP networks. You will need to understand concepts such as - subnetwork - network address - dynamic (DHCP) address range - static address range You can't pick a network address at random. It must be an address in the ...

Re: Static I.P. on the Pi

Hi, It's a bit difficult to tell as we do not have info about your network configuration. I think the safer way to do that is record your PI's MAC address (# ifconfig -a) leave the interface setting to DHCP and log in to your router. From the routes DHCP menu you can set up static lease for the RPi...

Re: Shutting Down/Turning Off

Raspberry Pi does not shut down like the Windows OS does, you have to bear in mind that the Pi runs on a type of Linux OS depending on which one you use (Debian Squeeze, Arch Linux, QtonPi). Windows halts and powers down the physical computer at the same time. The Pi does not, it needs to be halted ...

I'd also like to say that at first I thought when you installed Debian onto the SD card, it would have a config.txt on there, but it turns out you have to create the config.txt file yourself with a text editor like "Notepad" on Windows... or with "Nano" on Linux. With "Notepad" it's quite simple, op...
