I build bartop and cocktail arcade cabinets...

and I'm working on getting the Pi to be a replacement for the mame computers and arcade boards I use now.

Here's a video of Donkey Kong running on my Pi...

#57 Wireless Raspberry Pi?

Posted by brazen on 09 March 2012 - 08:37 AM

I noticed that Eben recently commented on some people's project ideas for the BBC, and pointed people to this page:

This has a list of, amongst other things, USB wireless dongles that people have apparently verified as working with the Pi on the Debian destribution.

Not sure what the relative power consumption is for using a shield rather than USB.

As I understand it, there are a number of Linux distributions that you can use, as long as they work on the ARMv6 architecture.

#2858 Pi webserver repository

Posted by RussoNC on 04 September 2013 - 12:47 AM

Hi ! I made a webserver with my Raspberry pi with the idea of sharing others webservers projects made in a raspberry pi too. 
The idea is simple, the webserver's owner post some basic information about his site like a short description, their location, mail, name's project etc. After sending the form your webserver is displayed as a post and all the users can acces the site only in one click or get into your own description page where a google map is displayed with your location and others informations.


So, here is the link http://www.pirepository.com


The site is in beta mode because there is a lot of work to do but I desided to make it public because I want to see users reactions. 
If you find some bugs or you think I should add or remove something or you only want to give your advice please contact me at contact@pirepository.com


Hope you enjoy my site and see you soon in the forum.


#2588 Useful Linux Commands

Posted by drewibbo on 14 May 2013 - 07:26 AM

So! You have received your Raspberry Pi or other Linux based computer and are now wondering what to do with it… Well don’t fret. I was thinking the same thing when I got mine.

After I had visited the Raspberry Pi website and installed the Debian “Wheezy” Operating System (OS) onto my Class 10 8Gb SD card I was ready to go… Or was I???

Being a hardened Windows user myself, I was a little daunted when faced with command lines. Here are some useful commands that have really helped me.


To Update your Debian “Wheezy” or other Linux OS software…


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


Start the graphical Interface (Linux version of Windows)…



Find the IP (internet protocol) address of your Pi… Next to the wlan0 entry you will see inet addr. This is the IP address of your Pi…

sudo ifconfig


Make a file executable (means you can run it in a terminal window)…

sudo chmod 755 /home/pi/path_to_file/file.sh


Change the current directory…

cd /home/pi/name_of_directory/


Open a file in a text editor…

nano /name_of_folder/name_of_file.txt


Check how much free space you have…

Check how much free space you have…


List directories & files recursively to a .txt file…

ls -1tr -l -R --group-directories-first | grep -v files > filedate.txt


See how long your Pi has been on for…



Search for text in files (recursively)…

grep -ril "TEXT TO FIND" /path/to/search


List all installed programs to a text file…

dpkg --get-selections > installed_progs_04-05-2013.txt


List all directories recursively to a file…

ls -l -R | grep ^d > filedate.txt

#2344 Sexiest PI case EVER?

Posted by BrianGarvey on 01 March 2013 - 03:09 PM

Hey, My name is Brian Garvey, I'm from the West of Ireland. Ive always had a keen interest in mechanical design. I have built up my own prototyping workshop which includes a drilling machine, lathe, a casting centre, and a cnc milling centre.

What is the Raspberry Slice? The Raspberry Slice is a unique and cool little enclosure I designed for use with the Raspberry pi computer.

Please find out more information on my kick-starter:

#2326 'Out of the Box' TV Challenge

Posted by outofthebox on 27 February 2013 - 02:48 AM

Call for participants to a developer meet up in London, 22-24 March 2013

The TV Triangle is pleased to announce the ‘Out of the Box’ TV Challenge, a unique competitive workshop bringing together teams and individuals from the creative and technology communities to rethink the way we watch television.

The convergence of television and the internet, the emergence of smart televisions, smartphones and tablets, and the availability of new open standards are opening up the world of television and enabling new opportunities for fresh thinking, out of the box.

The 'Out of the Box' TV Challenge is designed to allow anyone, from students, home hobbyists and small companies, to teams from within the television, creative and technology industries, to get involved and demonstrate their creative thinking and technical abilities. Over the weekend they will develop and present concepts or prototypes intended to explore what the future television viewing experience could look like.

Individuals or teams are invited to participate. The organisers are particularly keen to involve developers from the Raspberry Pi community. There will be awards and rewards for the winning teams, and the opportunity to network with like-minded developers and industry professionals.

Further information is available on the tvtriangle dot org dot uk web site.

#2138 [Project] Homemade Raspberry Pi Timelapse Dolly

Posted by zag on 03 January 2013 - 01:51 PM

Nice project here to build a moving timelapse camera:

An affordable solution for building a time lapse rig for cameras, using a Raspberry Pi as the controller.Parts are cheap and easy to source, and the results are on par with professional rigs that can cost 10 times as much as this set up.
Please note: I am not an expert in electronics, python or metalwork - all info on this site should be taken as is.



#273 New to Raspberrypi

Posted by ryandigweed on 09 July 2012 - 08:43 PM

Fedora would be best to use. I have also used linux on dual boot, but not on a separate system, because running a separate system as a server consuming 300-400W would be quite a waste. And Linux as a primary OS wouldn't work well for me, since i work on many Microsoft Based software. Nevertheless, i love ubuntu (which isn't ported to pi yet) :(
