There is a tool named usbip that you can find in the default Raspbian repository: rpi ~$ apt show usbip and install it with: rpi ~$ sudo apt install usbip It should do what you want. It provides server and client components only for Linux. You don't tell us what operating system do you use on your desktop pc but you will also find drivers for MS Window$ ...

The confusion here is that most Raspberry Pi Python tutorial videos were made before IDLE was removed from the default Raspbian image (in favor of Thonny, a recent development). Thus, comments suggesting to try out commands in the videos are not helpful. If you wish to follow those videos starting from the point of opening Python 3 (IDLE), as @ben_nuttall ...

Without providing you a step-by-step walkthrough, I can answer pieces of your question: Is it possible to tie an SD card to a Raspberry Pi? In theory, you may be able to encrypt an SD card using the TPM so that decryption is automatic and handled by the TPM. In this scenario, it would not work on another Raspberry Pi because that Pi's TPM would not have ...

I found a new recommended imager Etcher recommended by @HawaiianPi in this SD Cards issues thread. Etcher was able to image all the 3 cards without any hiccups and all 3 cards are booting in pi4 now. Win32DiskImager still doesnt work for me on the Buster image on the 16gb cards. Also etcher detected all the sd cards as having around 15.5 GB while both ...

The installation of hostapd has changed since its latest update. If you have installed it with sudo apt install hostapd then its service is masked now. You have to configure it first and then unmask and enable it what you have done later. It should work now. I do not understand why it works the first time.

Your question is ambiguous. If what you want is to execute the python script at the command line add the shebang at the start of the script and mark it as executable. #! /usr/bin/env python3 You can rename the script (omit the .py extension if desired). If you want any user to be able to execute the script you need to put it in a directory on the path e....

I think the most simple way is to use the Pi's composite video output and a "Composite to RF modulator" sometimes referred to as "RCA RF modulator" since the composite A/V is using a RCA connector. These devices are independent of the Pi and could be used with any composite source. One would reasonably assume those devices will comply with all relevant ...

You simply need a very short HDMI cable and a female-female HDMI adapter. These are both standard things you could easily find on Amazon. Make sure both are rated for your application and you should be good to go. If you need more specific advice, you'd have to be more specific about your hardware and your application.

As some of you already commented in the comments Raspberry Buster has some issues running Kodi. I decided to downgrade to Raspbian Stretch and captured all my steps in some blogpost. This first part is about how to reinstall Raspbian in a quick and easy way. https://marcofranssen.nl/install-fresh-raspbian-image-on-your-raspberry-pi-part-1/ The second ...

It's absolutely about peripherals. The lowest hanging fruit for Pi 2/3b is the gpu if you are not using a display, then the usb/ethernet. The combined USB/ethernet chip consumes a couple of watts even when idle, and cannot be turned off reliably when the USB is on (I believe this may have changed with the 3b+). I believe there is a way to reduce this ...

Probably a bit late for you but it might help others. For me, the issue was solved by simply installing picamera in the conda environment. conda activate pip install picamera Note, this installs picamera to your conda environment alongside the default python module in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/.

The answers involving modprobe and removing fake hwclock are not needed for Stretch era Rasbian and beyond. Here's the steps that work for me as a reference: Install tools: sudo apt-get install -y i2c-tools sudo apt-get install -y python-smbus Update /boot/config.txt (Note: you can turn I2C 'on' via sudo raspi-config, but you need the overlay too to ...

Are you sure you are getting a default gateway from your router? Check with ip route command in terminal. pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ip route 172.16.31.0/24 dev wlan0 proto dhcp scope link src 172.16.31.138 metric 303 I just saw that my raspberry pi didn't get a default route. Then just add it with sudo ip route add default via 172.16.31.1

While attempting to use the MK 360 combo with my rPi Zero W I have discovered that: -- if the receiver is attached directly via OTG Cable both the keyboard and mouse work no matter what -- however, if I connect the receiver through a cheapie 4-port USB hub (with power), I have to have both the keyboard and mouse powered up before booting the rPi Zero W. -- ...
