7 Operating Systems You Can Run With Raspberry Pi

7 Operating Systems You Can Run With Raspberry Pi
Who can argue with a $40 computer? Especially one that also forms a good base for electronics projects! I certainly can’t. But the hardware alone is only one side of the story: you still need to run an operating system. Linux Three different flavours of Linux are available officially: Pidora (based on Fedora); Archlinux (a DIY OS); and Raspian (Debian). Raspian is the recommended OS for everyone new to the Raspberry Pi, but if you fancy trying out some of the others too, a new tool from the creators of Raspberry Pi has been released which allows you to choose from a selection of images during boot-up (including some of the others on this list). OpenElec & XBMC OpenElec is a slimmed down and optimized OS specifically made for running XBox Media Centre. It’s my current choice of media center having functionally replaced my Windows 8 PC in the living room. We also a have a nice tutorial here on the hardware you’ll need for your own Pi Media Center.

How to Make a Raspberry Pi Media Panel (fka Digital Photo Frame) The goal of this project was to create a low cost Raspberry Pi Media Panel--a nice looking screen that could stand in the living room or attach to the refrigerator with the primary purpose of streaming personal photo and video content full time, but also be able to do some other cool things when show the weather, play a movie, play music, or receive AirPlay content. Read this blog post if you want to learn more about what a media panel is and why you might want one. Success criteria were: -Low cost: a full blown computing device and screen for between $100 and $200 all in -Attractive: meaning my wife finds it aesthetically acceptable for the living room -Light: no more than a few pounds -Thin: no more than an inch thick, including frame -Quick: can be built in a few hours or less -Simple: requiring mainly assembly, versus construction or manufacturing Update: Several people have asked me about an integrated product/service like this that is off-the-shelf. We call it Fireside.

15 Useful Commands Every Raspberry Pi User Should Know If you’re using a Raspberry Pi computer for your weekend project (perhaps a media centre or a home server) then there is a good chance these useful command line instructions will save you some time. The Raspberry Pi: Yes, It’s Linux You’ve imaged your SD card and booted your Raspberry Pi. You’re probably using the Raspbian operating system and updated and configured it so that it meets your requirements. Rather than an attempt to get people using Linux by stealth, the Raspberry Pi relies on these operating systems because of their open source origins and versatility. (And because it’s rather good.) Now, you can probably use a Linux operating system with a graphical user interface without using the command line, but this is where most of the real power lies. Want power over your Raspbian-powered Raspberry Pi? Raspberry Pi Command Line Basics We wouldn’t expect you to start using the command line without knowing how it works.

electronics To fully benefit from pilight, you should build a low-pass filter to make sure that (any) noise from the receiver isn't communicated to the Raspberry Pi. This filter consists of a microprocessor with a small amount of logic that pre-filters all signals before it enters pilight. Those who are not using a low-pass filter are advised to use pilight with the kernel module. You can check the hardware settings page on how to configure pilight to use one of these hardware interfaces. The source of this new low-pass filter can soon be found online. Example of wiring up a transmitter and receiver to your Pi Header pins and configuration pin numbers If you are wiring up the transmitter and receiver as shown, the transmitter is using GPIO0 and the receiver is using GPIO1. The default pilight configuration file (/etc/pilight/settings.json) assumes the above shown wiring scheme. If you use other header pins, you need to change the configuration file in accordance with the wiringX numbering scheme.

Android sur le Raspberry pi Le Raspberry pi, ce tout petit ordinateur à 30$ peut-il faire tourner Android ? La réponse est oui, tous comme l’os Raspbian celui-ci s’appelle Android pi. Avec un processeur de 700Mhz et 512mo de ram on peut faire tourner android sans trop de difficulté et n’oublions pas que l’on peut overclocker le processeur jusqu’à 1Ghz ^_^ Android pi s’installe sur une carte sd comme Raspbian ou XBMC. Si vous avez l’habitude des écrans tactiles de téléphone avec Android va bien vous changer, car il fonctionne uniquement avec la souris et le clavier, il existe aussi des claviers avec un trackpad très pratique pour le Raspberry pi. Vous pourrez bien entendu installer des applications comme vous en avez l’habitude sur votre smartphone. Aller sur YouTube Brancher le Raspberry pi en HDMI sur un téléviseur ou un écran LCD et vous pourrez regarder des vidéos sur YouTube confortablement assis sur votre canapé.

Projects :: libgphoto2 :: supported cameras On this page, you find list of the supported cameras as of the current release. Supported means here: Able to download images from the camera (or upload images to the picture frame). For remote control support check out the Remote Control Overview page. Support for additional cameras may be in the current libgphoto2 SVN trunk code and will be added to the next release. Cameras capable of MTP, PTP or PictBridge are supported without needing to be specifically listed here. If your camera is neither supported in the current release nor in current SVN trunk, it is possible that it is an old camera for which the original gPhoto driver has not been ported yet (mostly due to lack of demand)it is a new camera for which there is no support at all To report a not yet supported camera to the gphoto development team follow the instructions below: If it a USB mass storage based camera (appearing like a USB stick or USB drive) it is mounted by your operating system and not gphoto2.

Raspberry Pi kontaktron czujnik otwarcia okien i drzwi + układ MCP23017 | Malinowe Pi Raspberry ciekawe pomysły i realizacje Budując inteligenty dom, nie można pominąć kwestii bezpieczeństwa. Informację o otwartych oknach i drzwiach dostarczyć nam mogą różnego rodzaju kontaktrony. W tym przykładzie użyto najprostszego kosztującego niecałe 7 zł kontaktronu dedykowanego do drzwi . Podłączenie bezpośrednie kontaktronu do Rpi Połączenie to jest niezwykle proste. krótszy przewód wpinamy do GND RPi – niebieska zworka na zdjęciu -> linia GNDdłuższy np. do PIN 16 (GPIO 23) – zielona zworka na zdjęciu Dzięki możliwości tworzenia przez RPi wewnętrznych rezystorów pull-up nie musimy dodawać dodatkowego rezystora. W poniższym skrypcie ustawiono pin 23 do którego podłączony jest drugi przewód kontaktronu w tryb Pull-Up (rezystor podciągający). #! Podłączenie kontaktronu do układu MCP23017 układ MCP23017 ma wewnętrzne rezystory Pull-Up.Nie posiada rezystorów Pull-Down. W poniższym skrypcie stan niski czyli otwarcie drzwi powoduje zapalenie diody podłączonej również do układu MCP23017. #! Warto zobaczyć Kontaktron do kupienia w:

Android s'invite sur le Raspberry Pi À contre-courant d’un progrès technologique qui laisse sur le carreau les configurations vieillissantes, l’adaptabilité du logiciel serait-elle le véritable pilier de la révolution ARM ? L’éventualité s’impose alors qu’un portage d’Android répète désormais ses gammes sur le Raspberry Pi. Au prix d’un extrême effort d’allègement, l’OS mobile de Google emboîte le pas à un peloton de distributions Linux (dont récemment Raspbian) et investit un terrain qui ne lui était initialement pas promis au vu des limitations techniques du Raspberry Pi. Android Pi, c’est son nom, hérite d’un défaut temporaire : il ne gère pas l’accélération graphique. Sur le long terme, les travaux amorcés sur Cyanogenmod 9 devraient s’avérer plus fructueux grâce à la prise en charge de bout en bout de l’accélération graphique. Il reste même 100 Mo de libres après l’amorçage, quoique les bugs d’affichage et les “kernel panics” se succèdent.

How to Choose an LCD Screen For Your Raspberry Pi Media Panel There are countless ways to use a Raspberry Pi. Some need small screens, some need large screens, some need no screen. This guide talks about how we selected LCD screens for the Raspberry Pi media panels we are building. A media panel is a new and different class of computing appliance. We selected an AU Optronics B154pw01 for our 15″ media panel and a LG Philips LP171WU3 for our 17″ media panel. Below we explain why. Mechanical Considerations The most important mechanical considerations are aspect ratio, pixel resolution, weight, and dimensions. Aspect Ratio: We decided that 16×10 was the best aspect ratio for our media panels. LP171WU3 LCD Panel Back Optical Considerations Brightness, contrast ratio and color depth are the most important optical considerations. Our focus will be on making sure our screen has acceptable brightness and contrast ratio. The 17″ LP171WU3’s optical specs show a 6 bit 262k color TN display with a contrast ratio of 600:1 and a brightness of 200 cd/m2.
