If you are using Raspbian then dhcpcd is used for network configuration. Just look into /etc/dhcpcd.conf. At the end you will find some examples for static IP configuration. For further information look at man dhcpcd.conf. For searching in Google you should use raspbian static ip address.

Whilst this is more of a general electrical engineering question, rather than a RPi question, logic level conversion is a commonly encountered issue when using an RPi. +3V3 to RS-232 As Milliways correctly points out RS232 uses positive and negative signal levels, ±3-15 V, see Wikipedia: RS-232 - Voltage Levels and the data is inverted: Logic zero ...

In VirtualBox, you need to install the Guest Additions before it will recognized any other resolutions. In VirtualBox, choose Insert Guest Additions CD image... from the Devices menu. Next, you'll need to install the Guest Additions in a Terminal window. sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxGuestAdditions.run Reboot. After rebooting, open a new Terminal and use ...

The Pi's UART is 3V3 (0-3V3) only. If you connect anything outside that range you will probably destroy the UART and the Pi.

While you can run Arduino code on RPI, given the power and extensibility of RPI you can use other languages you may be more familiar with (Python, Java, Perl, JavaScript, Erlang, Go, C#, C(++)) for whatever tasks you have. Most modern languages will give you libraries to deal with RPI specifics, such as manipulation of GPIO and whatnot.

If I've understood correctly, you want to capture 5 images, each with a different shutter speed, wait five minutes, and then repeat. In that case, capture_sequence isn't applicable as it would capture all frames with the same shutter speed. In that case, the code you want should look something like this: from picamera import PiCamera from time import sleep ...

Please take note that using /etc/rc.local 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. Instead you should use a systemd Unit file to start your service. With systemd you have many options to make your service run. ...

First there is no need to worry about the used ethernet cable. It doesn't matter if you use a straight forward or a cross over cable. Nearly all devices since years are able to detect this including Raspberry Pi. Because it is unclear what you want to do, I can only give some general ideas. What does it mean "sending a datastream"? Do you want to send data ...

the green LED is blinking 4 times and pauses and blinks again and continues this step. As you have seen this indicates a boot problem, namely that "start.elf is not found". Didn't find any docs on how to resolve it. I imagine that is a bit inscrutable if you don't know what it is referring to. start.elf is required to be in the boot partition, which is ...

Kazam is another great screen recorder. It's graphical, easy to use, and has a ton of features. To install it: 1) Open a terminal (click on the raspberry icon in the task bar, go down to Accessories, and then click on Terminal) 2) Type in sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install kazam 3) To run it, you can launch it from the taskbar (you'll find it ...

You can relatively easily do this using Docker: 1. Download and extract Raspbian Go to the download page and download Raspbian Lite. Once the file has finished downloading, unzip it: cd Downloads/ unzip 2020-02-13-raspbian-buster-lite.zip 2. Mount the image First, create a loop device from the image file: udisksctl loop-setup --file 2020-02-13-...

There are two issues here: First: Your problem comes from missing headers. You would need to figure out which packages contain the headers and install them on your desktop computer. As the packages have a different architecture, you would probably need to unpack them manually or re-build the packages for your PC architecture (usually amd64) first. Second: ...

If you just want to learn about distributed systems, you're probably better off with Virtualbox (or the likes) and Vagrant then using a physical Pi, imho. You might even use qemu to emulate a Pi (even though this is slow). However, if your current hardware is too limited to run a set of virtual machines, getting a few Pi's may prove to be a cost effective ...

Install motion to stream Raspberry Pi camera on an RTSP/HTML protocol over network. Receives streams on the PC and then follow your idea. sudo apt-get install motion Run the motion: motion Open up the web page on your PC: http://raspberrypi:8081 You can change/set stream port, security, motion detection, etc option on /etc/motion/motion.conf.

recordMyDesktop is here for you. It captures what you are watching on the screen and also saves all audio input/output. You can use it by the terminal and also it has a GUI like the image below: Update repository: sudo apt-get update Install the package: sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop Start recording/capturing: recordmydesktop ...

You will not get anything at all until the Pi4B has successfully booted. Your Pi4B has not booted successfully. Go through this Pi4B specific boot sticky. If that does not resolve the issue go through the full boot sticky.

I fixed the issue by powering the Raspberry Pi with a 5.1V, 2.5A power plug now its been running well 24/7 ever since.

A second is not a short period of time for a computer which executes millions of instructions per second. Neither is it a short period of time to damage hardware designed to handle no more than 3V3. You have probably destroyed the directly connected GPIO. The damage will likely spread throughout the SoC over time. Time to buy a new Pi. The polyfuse isn'...

VLC is getting custom (downstream !) patches for the Raspberry Pi all the time. The foundation pays experienced developers to create and test them. Obviously, without running the latest software you will not see any of it. VLC uses software decoding without these patches, and will be very slow.

Why systemd-analyze shows 3.8s boot time Actually what it says is "Startup finished in...". At what point "booting" is finished depends on your definition of booting, which is really about context. It could be defined as the amount of time it takes the kernel to load from power on and launch a userland -- I think this would be equivalent to the first ...

Before you launch the script from ssh: export DISPLAY=:0 There are other possible values but, presuming there is only one GUI user logged in on the pi, it will be :0, the first display. You can also get it directly from the desktop (echo $DISPLAY) -- but not from the ssh login.

If you want to program the Pi through the Arduino IDE, this is possible with a little bit of configuration two ways. The first way is online using the Arduino Create cloud tool. Simply follow the getting started link. You'll have to program through the web browser. The second way is setting up a package called RasPiArduino. There is a comprehensive set of ...

You can control the Pi GPIO from a program written and running on your Windows machine. Arguably the simplest and most supported way will be by using the gpiozero software. In particular see Remote GPIO Recipes. gpiozero uses pigpio to control the GPIO from a remote machine. If you prefer you can use the pigpio Python module directly.

The most likely solution is that the I2C device does not support the SMBus read byte command. i2cdetect uses a variety of probing methods and chooses the one most likely according to the device's address. The pigpio example script is much simpler. See man i2cdetect As there is no standard I2C detection command, i2cdetect uses arbitrary SMBus commands ...

This depends on the task you are running and the screen resolution. If you want to optimize the GPU memory consumption, you can run vcgencmd get_mem reloc vcgencmd get_mem reloc_total and see how much of the memory you have allocated is actually in use.

As you noted in a comment you are also comfortable with using systemd-networkd. Any device conforming to IEEE 802.11 must provide the ad-hoc Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS) so it is possible to use it by just configuring the WiFi driver. In addition you can also use wpa_supplicant to setup an IBSS ad-hoc network. IBSS was initial specified only without ...

No one can answer your question with any precision for several reasons - one of which is that you've not said how much of a load you'll be placing on the components. You can think of it this way: component temp = ambient temp + load-induced temp By load-induced, I mean that as the demand your applications make on CPU and GPU increase, the component ...
