I2C Library

I2C Library WiringPi includes a library which can make it easier to use the Raspberry Pi’s on-board I2C interface. Not all systems have the I2C development libraries and headers installed, and when you buildwiringPi, it detects this at build time. If you are using these helper functions and you get link errors, it means that wiringPi is not installed with the I2C helper functions. You need to install the I2C development libraries and re-build. Under Raspbian: sudo apt-get install libi2c-dev then

Install HTPC, Manage your HTPC from anywhere   Installation Jump straight to: Osx - Windows - Linux Installing HTPC Manager can be really easy but might also cause some problems. The main requirement is you run Python. Python 2.7 is in most cases the way to go. The difficult part is installing the Python Image Library. Python Image Library The Python Image Library or PIL, is used to convert and resize images retrieved from the Xbmc Api. Installing PIL is, depending on your OS, not so easy. This guide should help

Raspberry PI kiosk mode with Chromium.

  lokir’s linux notes Raspberry PI kiosk mode with Chromium. 1. Install chromium, x11-xserver-utils and unclutter sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y sudo apt-get install chromium x11-xserver-utils unclutter 2. We need to prevent screen from going blank and disable screen saver. – edit /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart and comment # screen saver line and add those lines: @xset s off @xset -dpms @xset s noblank @chromium –kiosk –incognito http://some.web.

Raspberry Pi + Dropbox Sync March 16, 2013 by Marc Pelland For Pi Day, we decided that it would be fun if we built a system that would auto-post photos from the Raspberry Pi to our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  We knew that it would be easier to just run all of it from the computer that was running the game, but this seemed like a good opportunity to learn something about the Raspberry Pi.  As a result, we setup a system that would save images from the webcams in Flash to
