Re: Raspbian Jessie zip appears corrupt

Since the last post, I was able to (re)download Raspbian, unzip it with 7zip, and boot (somewhat). The difference? only thing I can think of is that I used a 32GB Samsung microsd in a Samsung adapter when imaging. The others were 16GB Lexar and SP Elite. I wouldn't think that would have anything to ...

Re: Imaging problem to a micro-SDcard

I have had similar issues with simply trying to image a fresh micro sd. NOT copying and existing one, but running a fresh downloaded image through Win32 DiskImager. Scenerio: I was/am trying to bring up a Rpi zero W for the first time. I finally realized after MUCH digging that Noobs won't work here...

Re: Raspbian Jessie zip appears corrupt

7zip doesn't work for me! I've tried half a dozen times on 2 different computers both running windows 10. I had no issues with my Rpi 2b noobs download, extract and install. However when I finally got a Pi zero w and tried to download, unzip and install Raspbian Jessie, It would error out using the ...

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

Well Guy's, I had some time to play tonight, and reimaged the Pi, went through creating a new user gave sudo privileges, added to groups. then did Dave's workaround and it works now. Only thing I can think at this point is something had gotten corrupted at some point. Thank you all for the great help.

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

Hi Dave,
Thanks for that. Entered said commands verified proper results..but...no change. Rebooted, logged back in .....no change. And looking at the folder with the GUI file manager, I do see a shortcut to the /home/pi/python_games folder. Puzzling..

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

Hi stderr, Thank you for your insight. If I understand the documentation correctly, loading Raspbian from NOOBs would be a full install. According to Dave's post he was able to create a work around by placing a "soft link" to "pi's" directory. (see his post for commands). That worked for him, but it...

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

Thank you Dave for the reply. So I did that from the new-user home, exited the terminal rebooted, and logged back in. Unfortunately all stayed the same. This is not an important thing, I'm just getting started with Raspbian and using this as a learning experience. I'm very new to the syntax, and eve...

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

So I tried a log out/in, and a reboot and login. still the same... specifically if I open the menu, navigate to games the submenu comes up with minecraft pi and Python games. Clicking on minecraft brings it up, but for the python games the hour glass comes up with the pointer for a few seconds then ...

Re: Only the pi user can run applications in X11

Hi All, I know this thread is a bit old, but I am new to the Pi, and Linux and got my hands on a Pi 2B. My command line experience goes way back before "Dos" hit the scene so the syntax is a bit foreign to me. I've installed Rasbian via NOOBs, and all that went well. But like the originator of this ...

Hello, I am totally new to the Raspberry Pi, and purchased a 2b recently. I decided to try connecting via wifi since my router is in another room (close enough to work though). Being brand new to Pi, I am also brand new to Rasbian, Linux, Python, etc. so forgive my ignorance. I have been all over th...
