Re: Configuring RealVNC server

Great. Thank you. I think that answers everything. BTW, regarding the "grepping for 59": Yes, I realize that those 59s in theory might not be related to port numbers starting with 59, but do note that these lines did only show up in my "netstat" output when (i.e., immediately after) I had enabled VN...

Configuring RealVNC server

I recently upgraded my Jessie installation to Pixel. Part of that upgrade process installed RealVNC (both server and client). So far, so good. But my question is: How to get VNC server working? I really want it to work and to be able to test the new features of the RealVNC program. I am a little bit...

Re: run midori via ssh and display a website on a TV

I think you all are missing the fact that the subject line includes the words "display a website on a TV". The solutions given so far will cause X to be forwarded back to the machine from which the user SSH'd in - which is usually what you want, but not in this case. Probably the best overall soluti...

Re: Which (if any) versions of Raspbian support /etc/fstab.d

Although /bin/mount may support the use of /etc/fstab.d, critically mountall does not yet support it in Debian (and therefore Raspbian). I don't know if support for this is planned in Debian/Raspbian Stretch or if Systemd is going to take over the world that functionality. Actually, my reading supp...

Re: Starting a program and viewing in VNC

The answer to your question is:

x11vnc

That's the version of VNC that "mirrors" the "real" display, rather than creating a new, "virtual", display.

BTW, I think the new, "RealVNC", version of VNC might also figure into this, but I have not had a chance to test it yet.

Lose the 'sudo'.

How did that get in there in the first place?

Re: omxplayer-how to change volume while playing?

This a common new-user-of-omxplayer trap. I know, b/c it happened to me. As noted, the reason that none of the hotkeys work is b/c the omxplayer program does not have the focus - and, worse, b/c it takes over the whole system, you can't mouse to it to give it the focus (as you would with just abotu ...

Which (if any) versions of Raspbian support /etc/fstab.d?

As I understand it, all of the following should be true, if you are completely up-to-date (in Linux in general, not specific to Raspbian or the Pi at this point in the discussion): 1) The directory /etc/fstab.d should exist on the system. 2) You should be able to put a file or files into that direct...

Re: Wifi works only when Ethernet is plugged. Raspberry pi 3

out of curiosity, why would you want wireless to work if you have ethernet working?

I.e., in which scenario do you have the ethernet plugged in to the Pi and, presumably, plugged into something else (i.e.,a router) and yet care about whether or not the wireless works?

Re: apt-get installs older version of midori

Understand a few things: 1) If I were going to do this, I'd just compile it from source, so this isn't specifically a personal need for me. Note that Debian makes this much easier than it would otherwise be via the "apt-src" program. 2) I understand the joy of being coy, but your efforts to obfuscat...

Re: apt-get installs older version of midori

Re: Raspian -- defeat ctl+alt+F1 ?

You can, if you work at it, disable the gettys on the virtual terminals, but you can't stop them from switching to them (via the indicated key sequence). So, it becomes a question of whether you're really going for aesthetics, or just "security". if you delete the above mentioned file then you will...

I still don't understand why so many Raspberry Pi users want to set a static IP (Windows and Mac users don't seem to have this aberration). http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/a/37921/8697 explains how to assign static addresses (2 methods) as well as better practices.
