The Run button allows you to enter Commands (ie mounting or unmounting drives - sudo mount -a or sudo umount /path/) instead of opening the command terminal. Like this...

Follow the instructions: 1. Figure out what is the name of USB drive on /dev: ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/ It should be like sda1, sdb2, etc. Plug and unplug to making sure about that. 2. Create a mount point whichever you prefer: sudo mkdir /home/pi/drive 3. Give the permission for the mount point: sudo chown -R pi:pi /home/pi/drive Note ...

It's possible to make what you have work, but I'll warn you from experience it's tedious and time consuming. Remove the connector (carefully) and cut off the end of your cable taking special care that the cut is perpendicular to the cable. Using a single-edged razor blade or a knife with a thin, sharp blade, split apart each of the individual wires at the ...

Pin 1 is 3.3V power, and can supply up to 800mA (although it is inadvisable to connect a pump to the supply - particularly without any protection). Pin 3 is a GPIO - if programmed as an output it can supply a maximum of 16mA. By default it will supply ~2mA (because it has a 1.8kΩ pullup) - neither is capable of running any kind of motor. Also connecting any ...

I have seen a test of the pi 4 speed compared to a 3b+, and using an SSD, SD and a flash drive as store. And to be fair, the pi 4 with SSD seemed to be a bit sluggish as a desktop Debian, so why would you want to try it with windows 10? But the answer to your question, HW wise it could run it, SW we need drivers and what not to work.

I assume that you are using Raspbian so you should use a systemd Unit file to start the program. Because you can run it manual from the command line you are also able to run it with a Unit file. You can set the same conditions than running from a command line. Start with this simple Unit file. Create it with: rpi ~$ sudo systemctl edit --force --full my....

Make sure your using the very latest software. Either re-flash your existing sd card or a new sd card with Raspbian Buster. Then update with: sudo apt update sudo apt full-upgrade -y

It seems that it is not possible with common ribbon assemblies. Instead i just made and an adaptor board as suggested by @tlfong01 This is currently its PCB footprint would look like and would use right angle female headers and ordinary male headers. The ribbon would attach to the male headers and the female headers will go to the bottom of the hat.

After two days, and a lot of work troubleshooting, I've fixed the problem by: a) Inserting my problematic disk into another computer b) Unmounting the directory (it was automatically mounted) by umount /dev/sda1 c) Running sudo fsck /dev/sda1 It turned out to be a bad bit, and now the problem is all fixed. For future reference, the problem wasn't LXDE, ...

After the helpful keyword from joan, it was indeed a contact bounce and after a few attempts, here's what my loop looks like now. while True: print("Started loop sequence") if static_button.is_pressed: print("Static Button Pressed") print(static_running) if static_running==False: static_display() ...

I had issues installing Kali to the USB too. I didn't have an SD card and so I had to fix it without one. It was getting stuck at the rainbow screen because it couldn't find the boot files. I fixed the issue by modifying cmdline.txt to point to my USB device partitions. I also had to change /etc/fstab to point to my USB device partitions. I've written a ...

Like @Milliways wrote, You should be able to power a USB hard disk from the Pi3B+ but it really depends on the drive (and the PSU of the Pi). Also, if the files you are working on are important, I suggest you to use a powered usb hub to prevent "bad things" from happening.

1) Open Terminal Click on the Terminal Window. 2) cd /usr/bin sets target directory (actually changes directory.) for cp (copy) command. 3) sudo cp lxterminal xterm It makes another copy of "lxterminal" and re-names it to "xterm" (old terminal) so you can use both lxterminal and xterm command to start terminal. Problem Solved Enjoy.
