Re: Accessing AFP Shares Over Local Network

Forgot to mention, if you use "sudo su" and it prompts you for the root password and fails, type:

Code: Select all

sudo gconftool-2  --type bool  --set  /apps/gksu/sudo-mode  true
I found this (can't remember where), but there seems to be a bug where the su password will always fails. This usually fixes it.

Re: Accessing AFP Shares Over Local Network

I was having the same issue. After you mount the shared folder type: sudo su then type: mount This will display all your mounted disks. It will also give you the path to the mount e.g. /home/pi/mountname Type: cd /home/pi/mountname I am new to linux and having a ball with all the permissions :twisted:

Re: Screen Rotation

Thank you. Great resource. When I add display_rotate=1 and reboot, the screen does not rotate. Am I missing another setting?
