You can connect the RasPi with an ethernet cable to the computer. Depending on the operating system on the computer a network connection may work out of the box. You can setup a WiFi access point on the RasPi and connect to it from the computer. How to do it you can look at Setting up a Raspberry Pi as an access point - the easy way. You can use bluetooth to ...

I don't know what tutorial do you follow. I don't had a look at it, tl;dr. But it cannot belong to Raspberry Pi 4B because that model does not support booting from other devices than an SD Card yet. At Raspberry Pi boot modes you can find: Note: The Raspberry Pi 4B does not use the bootcode.bin file - instead the bootloader is located in an on-board ...

You could use cron for this. To schedule a cron job, you will use the crontab utility. Start by reading the man pages for cron and crontab. You could also search the Internet for information resources, and find something similar to this guide. Once you have the gist (general idea) of this, try this from the command line of your RPi: crontab -e This ...

inittab was a part of SysVinit, which was replaced by systemd. Serial getty is a service now, and it can disabled or stopped like this: sudo systemctl stop serial-getty@ttyAMA0.service sudo systemctl disable serial-getty@ttyAMA0.service For more information, take a look at this thread in the rpi forum. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=...

The tutorial you reference only enables ssh it does not enable the avahi-daemon (zeroconf) which is what you need if you want to connect via a hostname instead of an IP address. So you'll need the IP address in order to ssh to the pi. Since you are on Linux Mint, try installing nmap and then scanning your network to find the pi. Substitute the appropriate ...

Get yourself a copy of PINN that will let you pick any one of a multitude of operating systems to multi-boot on your RPi. You should be able to fit LibreElec, OSMC, Retropie and Raspbian on a 32GB or 64GB SDcard. https://github.com/procount/pinn

For those who prefer a solution involving only scripts dropped into the FAT32 boot partition, here is how to do that. [Edit: The files are now available in a project pi-boot-script.] As mentioned in other answers, it involves the command-line arguments with which the Linux kernel is started. Those arguments are in /boot/cmdline.txt. I have tested this on ...

There are probably a few ways to do this, but what I've done in the past is to first set up an auto-login service for the user account that would run the application: sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/autologin@.service [Service] ExecStart=-/sbin/agetty --autologin app_user %I $TERM Then in the user .profile, start an X session: [[ -z $DISPLAY && $...

You tried several methods to start chromium in kiosk mode on boot. Using /etc/rc.local is not a good idea because it is deprecated. It has limitations due to Compatibility with SysV. We have seen many problems here on this site using it. Following the recommendation of the developers from systemd you should avoid using it. Using ~/.bashrc will not work ...

The usual (or works for me) method for booting off an external disk with a pi 4 is: Start with a SD based system and an empty external drive (probably /dev/sda)... Run fdisk, delete all partitions on /dev/sda. Create a new primary linux partition. Save and exit. run sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 sudo mkdir /media/disk sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/disk sudo rsync -...

So, it turns out I did not have enough power and I was using a lot of the pins. I also may have accidentally damaged something as well. I have decided to get a refund (which was successful) and just buy a new one from canakit. I will try to be more careful. Usually, Amazon is good with returns.

If there is any error while running this on startup, you can’t see the error message. To check this, press ctrl+alt+F1. Here you can check the output of background processes. You can return to graphical display by ctrl+alt+F7. This is the way you can ensure whether there is any error while running the code or not. Now come to your solution, if there is any ...

It is known that the Raspberry Pi 3B had problems that the Foundation tried to fix but could still make problems. You can try to use Special bootcode.bin-only boot mode or extend the time for which it waits for the mass storage device to initialize. Look at Raspberry Pi boot modes how to do it and for further information about troubleshooting.
