If I understand this and that right, the lite distribution is just a Minimal image based on Debian Jessie without the X-server and its components installed. Meaning it uses less space on the SD-card and can run from a smaller SD card. Installing the minimal image will also reduce traffic during updates (as pointed out by Jacob). Any desired package can still ...

From https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/ssh/ As of the November 2016 release, Raspbian has the SSH server disabled by default. You will have to enable it manually. This is done using raspi-config: Enter sudo raspi-config in the terminal, first select Interfacing options, then navigate to ssh, press Enter and select Enable or ...

From a fresh install of Jessie Light, and after an apt-get update you can do: sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends xserver-xorg xinit The PIXEL GUI: sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-ui-mods then lightdm: sudo apt-get install lightdm I hadn't originally planned to install PIXEL so I had only xorg, xinit and lightdm, but eventually did install ...

The username is "pi" and the password is "raspberry", you have misspelled the word "raspberry" by missing the p. If you still have issues, I would try re-downloading, re-formatting, and doing it once more. I think you'll be fine after correcting the password entry. It's good practice after logging in to change the password of the user from the default. ...

After alot of research I could fix my Problem with usbmount: Adding ntfs to usbmount Install usbmount with sudo apt-get install usbmount. Install NTFS driver package ntfs-3g with sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g. Configure usbmount to mount specified filesystems by opening the usbmount file with sudo nano /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf. In here there is a line ...

The error message is quite clear. You are missing a X enviroment , so install it : sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core xserver-xorg-input-all \ xserver-xorg-video-fbdev libx11-6 x11-common \ x11-utils x11-xkb-utils x11-xserver-utils xterm lightdm openbox

The lite version doesn't have a GUI(Graphical User Interface).


10

Install git rather than git-core. sudo apt-get install git

Size-wise lite is 1GB smaller (300MB vs 1.32GB)

This depends on the command (and note this applies to all multicore systems, not just the Pi 2). Not all tasks can be run in parallel. By analogy, consider a simple math problem 3 * 4 + 5 = None of this can be done in parallel. You have to multiply the first two numbers to get a result, then add that to 5, so for a task like this, no matter how many ...

Setting a fixed IP address on a recent Jessie is easy: nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf and add at the bottom (i.e. below nohook lookup-hostname): interface eth0 static ip_address=192.168.1.10/24 static routers=192.168.1.1 static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 8.8.8.8 4.2.2.1 static domain_search=yourlan static domain_name=yourlan No other file to be touched, ...

Run the command on your Mac: scp pi@raspberry.local:/path/to/file . And the file will be transferred to your current directory. Assuming your Raspberry Pi is accessible through its default hostname raspberry.local in the local network. Also assuming the user pi has read access to the file.

It sounds like your package manager is out of date. Before installing, it's usually wise to update it by running the command: sudo apt-get update Once that's done, you should be able to install it with the command you used before sudo apt-get install git

Yes And No Installing a vnc server will also get you an x server. (Both the tightvncserver and vnc4server packages provide xserver). This is enough for you to see and interact with graphical applications. But you will really, really, really want an x window manager so that you can move the applications around on your screen, resize them, make them stop ...

sudo systemctl stop dhcpcd.service should stop dhcpcd. It is also possible to set Raspbian to not wait for the network on boot (see raspi-config).

I finally managed to find a good guide to get Jessie Lite up and running without booting to desktop as default. You still need to run Xserver to managed the windows, and you can use LightDM to manage the startup process. There are some other driver installs which optimize video performance on the ARM processor. The big thing to pay attention to is that the ...

You may need to enable SSH, however, you are receiving a prompt, so most likely is already active, just in case: sudo update-rc.d ssh enable if security is high, edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config sudo /etc/ssh/sshd_config # comment #PermitRootLogin without-password # and add PermitRootLogin yes # and also #StrictModes yes StrictModes no then, restart the ssh ...

The problem is you running Jessie-Lite. it similar to Jessie(full) but without a window manager, X-server and its components. Those are mandatory for VNC to run :) Believe me, try same VNC setup on Jessie(full) and it will work nicely :)

Raspbian Lite release notes from 25th November 2016: * SSH disabled by default; can be enabled by creating a file with name "ssh" in boot partition That answers the question I think. :)

I had a similar problem to set a Subnet Mask 255.255.254.0 for static IP 192.168.161.154 in /etc/dhcpcd.conf. How I address this is by adding /23 at the end of the static IP address, interface wlan0 static ip_address=192.168.161.154/23 For the above discussed issue, it can be addressed by adding /16, as specified below. interface wlan0 static ip_address=...

Separating a given task to be automatically processed by multiple CPUs, also called automatic parallelization, is generally a complex task. For some tasks (like compiling source-code) this is somewhat easier. It depends at the task at hand how difficult it is to be parallelized. As a programmer, with most programming languages, you have the possibility to ...

One possible way would be to check if the raspberrypi-ui-mods package is installed, which should give a good clue on whether the Pi has Pixel installed. This is possible by running for example apt list raspberrypi-ui-mods --installed. This lists the version of the package if it is installed. If you want to do know if Pixel might be installed from without ...


3

Remove the LXDE packages: # apt-get purge lxde If it still gives you LXDE or it fails to start, change the autologin section in the lightdm configuration file at /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf. Remove the # and set it to 60 and restart. autologin-user-timeout=60 That will give you time to change the session desktop for the pi user.

just faced the same problem. everything written before is right, BUT : my installation had an english keyboard layout, which means, to input my "raspberry" pw i had to press "raspberrz"

There are a couple of problems. The dtbs in the current raspberry pi foundation firmware package are incompatible with that kernel. The cmdline.txt on the current foundation images uses root=PARTUUID= . Unfortunately this doesn't work with initrds created by jessie's initramfs-tools. For the first problem right now you have a couple of options. Use the ...

Got it working. Turns out some weird stuff was happening with the permissions, so I installed Java 8 and it worked fine. Thanks Steve Robillard!

You can enable SSH by placing a file called "ssh" at the root of the boot partition. You would do this right after you flash the image to the SD card and before you place the SD card in the Pi. ENABLE SSH ON A HEADLESS RASPBERRY PI For headless setup, SSH can be enabled by placing a file named ssh, without any extension, onto the boot ...

The answer by Untermoser is correct, but it will break some of usbmount functionality. Because he is using Systemd units to spawn processes to mount (to enable NTFS), the environment variable $DEVPATH is no longer sent to usbmount add command, resulting in the symlink creation failure. To fix that, run the following: sed -i '/# Determine vendor/,/if/ s/\(....

I no longer see startup messages and the services notification ("[OK]", "[Failed]", etc.) when using service start/stop. This is possibly because Debian/Raspbian changed the init system in version 8 from SysV to systemd; service was really part of the former but remains for backward compatibility. If you want some informative and potentially colourful ...

If you are running a recent Raspbian /etc/network/interfaces should be as below. If you have changed it to the original . # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8) # Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd # For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf' # Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d: source-...
