I have several different little Raspberry Pi computers, and though there are subtle differences between them if you can’t remember what they are then you will be glad to know that you can easily check the model number from the … Continue reading
If at first you don’t succeed try, try again…
When I discovered (admittedly a few months ago) that not only has Microsoft released PowerShell Core as an Open Source project on GitHub but that it had been ported to the Raspberry Pi I couldn’t resist.
When setting up my latest Raspberry Pi recently I discovered that configuring the wireless network on Raspbian ‘Stretch’ is done slightly differently from previous versions.
I’ve been experimenting with my latest Raspberry Pi and Sense HAT for a while and having got everything working I just wanted to copy over some files from my desktop.
After just messing about and experimenting with my Sense Hat a bit I had a short python script that just loaded each ‘.png’ file it found in the current directory and displayed it on the 8×8 LED matrix.
Normally unless you are a super user you will get the following error message (or something similar) when you try to run a scripts that attempts to modify the Sense HAT display.
If you are trying to figure out how to manually configure the wireless network on your Raspberry Pi then you should be able to find what you need here.
Just before the Raspberry Pi 3 came out I brought myself a Sense HAT – after all who doesn’t like lots of flashing LEDs. I also brought a Pibow case and some nylon spacers.
Unfortunately the raspbian unattended network install doesn’t yet support the Raspberry Pi 3, so if you want a really lightweight install on your nice shiny Raspberry Pi 3 you need to do a bit more work.
