Re: Ubuntu MATE

I had to add the following line to the /boot/config.txt file in order to get sound on Ubuntu Mate for Pi:

Code: Select all

Re: Ubuntu MATE

I was wondering if I can use Ubuntu mate to learn Ubuntu command lines like Ubuntu on a laptop. And if I can do some programming like making a web application. Yes, because Ubuntu Mate for the Raspberry Pi 3 is all the Ubuntu applications from their Xenial armhf ports. On top of that (or underneath...

Re: Ubuntu Mate with Raspbian kernel: New Firefox 55.0.1 crashes on startup

The officially supported os is Raspbian. [..] That's means support for Ubuntu is thin here, unless suplied by community members. Being on download page does not make it official or supported.

Re: Ubuntu Mate with Raspbian kernel: New Firefox 55.0.1 crashes on startup

Ubuntu-Mate for Raspberry Pi is a Community Release (not official) and ideally one should contact them for fixing issues. Ideally, yes, but… … the Ubuntu-Mate forum is not a real forum unfortunately, and not very usable. Also, all major Pi stuff is happening here, so this is always the first place ...

Re: Pi → USB to parallel (centronics) cable → HP Deskjet ?

First I tried the default HPLIP driver, but the printer only printed some random dots on the left then. Then I tried the other driver, the Gutenberg one, and it didn't work either.

Re: Pi → USB to parallel (centronics) cable → HP Deskjet ?

Thank you fellow Pi-users for your valuable informations.

I'll definitely buy and try such a cable to see if I can make the good old Deskjet to work with the Pi. Also good to know that basically HPLIP isn't even needed for the Deskjet 5xx series.

Have a good week.

Thanks for your answers. Indeed the software side is good, since Debian Linux with its pre-installed HPLIP supports most if not all HP printers very well.

Hello fellow Pi users, Before I buy such an adapter cable for my Pi, I'd be interested if somebody already managed to print with his Pi to a HP Deskjet 5xx (black-white in my case) via such an adapter cable. The adapter cable is needed because the Deskjet has a parallel port only, and the Pi has an ...

Well said, Bic. Also there's the OpenSource Dolphin-Emulator which emulates Nintendo's Gamecube (GC), which is Nintendo's match for Sony's PS2. Dolphin is also compiled for the ARM (Android) but I don't know if somebody tried to use it on the Pi3. Of course, like already with a PS2 emulator, also a ...

Re: 13th May 2016 Changes to the Raspbian Jessie Desktop

When I "sudo poweroff" the Pi3, in contrast to former Raspbians the green (SD?) LED really turns off after some blinking, leaving only the red power LED on.

That's nice.
