Any result ?
Linux noob warning
So I put the Arduino IDE on my raspberry pi 3 the other day but ran "Sudo apt get update" or something first and now Arduino works great but the desktop is all messed up with a Gray background and all the menus are stuffed.
Can I reinstall or repair raspbian without formatting? I boot the desktop form the retropi/whatever menu and don't want to lose that and have to set up Bluetooth etc again. Of its hard I'll probably just do a fresh Install on another sd card.
Edit: never mind it seems to have fixed itself now.
Nah I've given up on it for now. I can get everything running but getting the MoBro software to connect to the Pi is pretty hit and miss.. only connects probably 10% of the time I've tried. They've come out with another update since then but it hasn't helped. I've written it off as too buggy for now. I still have the Pi and screen though, I'll try again on the next update. The software is still in dev, perhaps it will sort with time.
apt can do a rollback, should reverse the changes it made before.
so I'm attempting to use the original pi for this project, https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/monitor-air-quality-with-a-raspberry-pi/
(haven't done any coding since uni 15yrs ago, barely remember it, never done python.. ever!)
1. bought the same sensor as the article
2. setup latest headless raspbian and did all updates, pip3, python install etc
3. setup adafruit io login, got the key etc
4. added coded to print out the readings for both PM2.5 & 10 on the local HDMI monitor (so i know its working).
5. so now only stuck.. can't get the second value to upload and graph, PM10... WTF am I missing
6. dashboard showing PM2.5, https://io.adafruit.com/gasalarm_au/feeds/air-quality
7. also if i rename the curve/line's name from "air-quality" to "PM25_Reading" it also breaks.. does it not like underscores?
original rPi's had different pinouts to later units.
is that aimed at me?
pinouts is irrelevant. I have the pi printing out the correct sensor values to the HDMI monitor.
its just the uploading to the correct graph that is my issue
arrr. sorry. i thought getting a reading was an issue.
Randomly giving a possibly irrelevant 2 second tip.
Search and (probably, at your own risk) replace other instances of "air-quality" with "PM25_Reading" in the code. (assuming "air-quality" is not a multi use term in the code - this is all circumstantial!)
got it working.. think it is the underscores stuffing it up
can't be bothering investigating further now that it is working fine
here is the final link: https://io.adafruit.com/gasalarm_au/dashboards/air-quality
will be used to monitor the air quality in our warehouse for sh*ts & giggles
Those are weird things to have in your air.
I've started down the home assistant path, nothing good can come of this
Ta Boom Cha!
I'll pay that
I have been looking for a decent e-ink display forever. Looks like someone's finally made one:
Not only do I want to use this to make my own reader, but I have a stick desire to play the first GameBoy Pokémon games on this screen.
that price :eyewatering:
Surely driving it over hdmi is going to mean it'll refresh constantly, killing the power advantage of e-ink?
This has been a shambles, especially given the recent renaming of it.
Wouldn't it be cheaper to drive an Android device? https://ereader.store/en/onyx-boox/onyx-boox-nova-pro-47.html
It would be if I wanted an Android device.
I would hope there was some sort of intelligent controller in there that could scan the input and change only on a real delta.
