This no longer works since ssh is not enabled. Using only the laptop's screen and keyboard (both before and after installation), install and configuration for headless operation using SSH is possible using NOOBS (they call it "silent install"). It does not require a separate screen or keyboard/mouse. It does require an SD card reader on the laptop (built in ...

Take a look at the Raspberry Pi wiki on re-mapping the keyboard with Debian Squeeze: Re-mapping the keyboard with Debian Squeeze If different letters appear on-screen from that which you typed, you need to reconfigure you keyboard settings. In Debian, from a command line type: sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration Follow the prompts....

First thing to do: Open terminal Second you will need to update the repositories: sudo apt-get update An upgrade to the whole system isn't needed but it is recommended: sudo apt-get upgrade Now we can install the virtual keyboard: sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard Rebooting is recommended: sudo reboot Now you can access the keyboard: Menu >>...

Here is one thing to try out: Edit /etc/default/keyboard with your favorite editor (vim, nano,). Remember to use sudo: sudo nano /etc/default/keyboard Make the file look like this: # KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE # Consult the keyboard(5) manual page. XKBMODEL="pc105" XKBLAYOUT="se" XKBVARIANT="" XKBOPTIONS="terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" BACKSPACE="guess" ...

For a headless setup, SSH can be enabled by placing a file named ssh, without any extension, onto the boot partition of the SD card. When the Pi boots, it looks for the ssh file. If it is found, SSH is enabled, and the file is deleted. The content of the file does not matter: it could contain text, or nothing at all.

Is it possible to install and configure a Raspberry Pi without a wired keyboard or mouse? It should be. I've used a wireless keyboard/mouse combo with a USB dongle; that works out of the box with the linux kernel as configured on raspbian (and almost certainly other available systems too). Just don't get anything too wierd that requires special drivers or ...

In my case, Raspbian (jessie): $ cat /etc/os-release PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)" ... $ sudo vi ~/.config/lxkeymap.cfg option = ctrl:swapcaps or option = <something>,ctrl:swapcaps then $ sudo reboot ctrl:swapcaps swaps the Ctrl and CapsLock keys. If you'd like to just replace CapsLock and keep the original Ctrl as is, use ctrl:...

The short answer is, make sure you download the offline install version of NOOBS, then edit the file recovery.cmdline and add silentinstall on the end of the first line. That will auto install raspbian, and reboot into the desktop when finished.

I'm assuming Raspbian: sudo raspi-config then go to 4 Internationalisation Options, then I3 Change Keyboard Layout. Select a US keyboard layout, and you should be up and running.

I use pad4pi. It simplifies everything. For more details you may want to see githubdemoproject. from pad4pi import rpi_gpio import time # Setup Keypad KEYPAD = [ ["1","2","3","A"], ["4","5","6","B"], ["7","8","9","C"], ["*","0","#","D"] ] # same as calling: factory.create_4_by_4_keypad, still we put here fyi: ROW_PINS = [4,...

| = AltGr + Shift + `~ \ = AltGr + -_ One solution that I've found is to hold the AltGr key and press the `~ key. But I'm not sure if this would work for a normal "right alt" on a US keyboard. According to wikipedia, the answer is: it depends how the US keyboard was made. I happen to be using a CanaKit CK-KB-101 which is identical to this one and it has a ...

I'd like to install openelec on my pi2, after I have the pi the way I like it can i unplug my peripherals and have it boot up without kb/mouse Yes.

You just need to add a file named 'ssh' to the noobs partition (you can do it right when copying fresh noobs files to a clean sd card) and it will enable ssh for raspbian when you install it from this noobs setup (including for subsequent raspbian reinstalls, i.e. this 'ssh' file on noobs partition will be persistent and have effect for every time you (re)...

If you want to do this but can't connect your Pi to the internet via cable do this: Open LibreOffice Writer Insert - Special characters... With mouse you can type your WiFi password Turn on WiFi, connect to your network by copying password from LibreOffice Proceed with the installing matchbox-keyboard or setting up VNC

try for Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.4 (stretch) sudo nano /home/pi/.config/lxpanel/LXDE-pi/panels/panel At the end of the file change to Plugin { type=xkb Config { Model=pc105 LayoutsList=us,ru VariantsList=, ToggleOpt=grp:alt_shift_toggle KeepSysLayouts=0 DisplayType=0 } } Save and reboot system.

I found this guide to be the most useful. An important update in setup: ssh is disabled by default on the newest images. You have to create a new file ssh in /boot (can be empty). E.g. touch /Volumes/boot/ssh

If you are not in X and already at a virtual console, you do not need to use Ctrl and just Alt+F1 should work. If the keyboard issue is that it cannot handle 3 modifiers, this might help, but if the issue is that the Function key doesn't allow modifiers, then this won't help. To get around this, if your keyboard has arrow keys, Alt+left/right arrow keys ...

Can you insert the SD card into another machine and mount the filesystem? If so, edit /etc/default/keyboard and change XKBLAYOUT="in" back to your desired setting. If needed, there's a list of valid codes on Wikipedia.

If you know the IP address you can ssh from another machine. Then use the raspi-config utility: Open a terminal Run raspi-config Choose Localisation Options Choose Change Keyboard Layout Choose your keyboard or one of the generics Choose your langauge. For instance, for American English choose English (US) sudo reboot Alternatively to ssh, if you have ...

The Raspberry Pi has a header which contains many GPIO (General-Purpose I/O) pins that can be controlled directly from software on the Pi. These pins can be configured as outputs or as inputs (which is what you'd need for your buttons). You'll have to deal with contact bouncing, which means you'll have to learn about debouncing. There's an elaborate article ...

I found that pressing \ (backslash) key produces the # character which is sufficient to enable editing the config file. (Don't ask me how to type backslash...)

Another option I just used is to put the commands and password for WiFi in a text document on a USB drive. You can open the file and copy and paste as needed.

Florence virtual keyboard claims to have this feature (called "auto-hide mode"), which should work with modern applications implementing accessibility API (e.g. GTK+ and Qt 5): For a system-wide experience, you'll probably have to install a modern desktop environment like GNOME or KDE. As far as I know, default Raspbian desktop lacks such features.

Only the Raspberry Pi Zero , Zero W , Model A and Compute Module can act as USB device. Other models can not act as USB device. This is a hardware limitation which cannot be worked around in software. You will not be able to make the Pi act as PS/2 keyboard or mouse. Not with the GPIO pins, that is. Here is a guide for turning the Pi Zero into an USB ...

You may find luck with this command: echo 0x0 > /sys/devices/platform/bcm2708_usb/buspower This seems to disable the USB ports. I haven't tested it though.

well google will provide your answer generate custom linux image it is a lil about which distro you want to use.. if you can give more informations i can update my answer maybe.. furthermore.. why you do not install and configure your pi and make an image from the final state?

You have a UK English keyboard layout set on your RPi. From this site, you have two options. Option 1 Run the command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration Follow the prompts. Then restart your RasPi. Option 2 Run the command: sudo nano /etc/default/keyboard Find the entry XKBLAYOUT="gb" and change gb with, likely us. Restart Run the ...
