Re: raspberry pi 2b and DPscope

likely this will not work because likely the instruction set differs.
The rpi is arm and the software is likely x86, and "Wine Is Not an Emulator".
If you can find one that uses a java client it's more likely to work.

Re: Encrypted storage for remote network mount

Either the root user will have access or you should use a remote block device (can be a file) but that requires the client to have nerdy software.

Re: Google API for JAVA (not Android). Is this possible?

yes you could use static-maps from Java or any language, that's what it's for.
If you know you want to use Java then using static-maps is as trivial as downloading a file.
If you just want an interactive map UI JavaScript is the faster option because most of the UI is already implemented for you.

Re: Google API for JAVA (not Android). Is this possible?

Google Map API is for web browsers running JavaScript not for Java.
Yes you can have it load on boot.
Use raspbian.

Re: Correctly mount hard drive

There is no such thing as a "hidden partition" because all space is accounted for (have a look see in GParted) so just use a normal ext4, and use LUKS if you want some security.
to mount your non-indexed partition use;

Code: Select all

-o offset=XXXX

Re: Clipboard inside Linux

There is one if you are using the GUI (directly or via vnc).
on the CLI vim/vimdiff has one so you can copy from one file to another, but most copying is accomplished with output redirection like;

Code: Select all

grep -A 3 something this.txt >> that.txt
will append something + 3 lines to that.txt from this.txt.

Re: usb expansion drive

yes, but you will still need an sdcard.
if you want ubuntu / partition to live on the HDD you will still need to keep the /boot partition on sdcard.

Re: Raspberry Pi Thermostat

What you want first is a quality UPS and/or a reliable reboot on power loss as you don't want your pipes bursting if the power goes flaky in sub zero weather. Other than that you will want to scrap your potentiometer in favor of a Rotary encoder or up/down buttons. (as a less intuitive design you co...

Re: x265 video decoding possible??

The nuc is the only SBC like thing that can do 4k/x265 AFAIK. The Amazon Fire TV ($75) with kodi side loaded on it is a more closed option (That can be rooted but can't run custom OSs at the moment.) There are a bunch of GPUs that do this but not many are used in SOCs yet. Amlogic (S905,T886,S812,S8...
