Re: WiFi Dongle Not Supported

Don’t know if this will help, but have you tried to bring up the wireless interface manually? SSH in, then run “ifup wlan0”. If no luck try a 1 instead of a zero (wlan0 may be for an onboard wifi interface). If you get a message that the interface is up, then you can see if the config screen in pi-s...

Re: ver4.0RC and nextion driver

Since those two files are in the /etc/ folder, would it work to just change the DataFilePath in MMDVMHost rather than moving (in my case, copying) the files to the path specified in DataFilePath? BTW, after copying those files as you suggest, the DiskFree field is now populated; it went from “??” to...

Re: Pi-Star v4.0.0 RC2 - available

When Adri, PE1BVU, mentioned that he installed Samba so he could transfer files from his Windows computer, I thought “Why not?” I was happy to discover that Samba is already installed in RC2 so all you need to do is configure it. After a few google searches I found an article about configuring Samba...

Re: pistar-findmodem

Oops. Why did I think not running as root would work when the other pistar-scripts need to? Hardening of the aptitudes, I guess. Running under sudo detects all. Thanks!

Re: pistar-findmodem

It found my Nextion 3.5” enhanced screen correctly, but that was all....did not list my modem or other info. Since it’s not a board from Florian, et. al., I assume that’s why. My specs, if needed: Jumbospot, early 2017 version, 14.7465 MHz, on Pi Zero W. FW HS_Hat V.1.4.14. — Pi-Star 3.4.16. — Dashb...

Re: What version of pistar on pi b+ and pi 3 b+

When PS 4 comes out, will it be installable via the Pi-Star system (e.g. pistar-update/upgrade) or should I get ready to DL and burn a new image? Thought I’d read some speculation that PS 4 would be upgradeable from within. Regardless of the answer, I’m happy that I decided to migrate to Pi-Star som...

Re: Firefox Problems

You’ve pretty well covered the waterfront on things I would have thought of, John. The problems I was having were with Safari on an iPad, so I was just guessing about Firefox, though Firefox is the browser I use on both Linux and WIn10. Haven’t yet had the problem there. For what it’s worth, the pro...

Re: Firefox Problems

You might have some success if you clear the cache on FireFox. It might be that FIreFox has cached the Dashboard page and is showing you the cached page rather than reconnecting to Pi-Star and reloading the dashboard. Once you clear the cache you may have to use the IP address to reconnect with Pi-S...

Re: Problem Installing ON7LDS Nextion Driver

Walter, when you say you don’t get the full function, do you mean—for example—that the reboot and shutdown buttons don’t do anything? If that’s the case, it’s because connecting via the modem connection won’t work for those functions. I had to change over to USB for those to work. There’s supposed t...

Re: Problem Installing ON7LDS Nextion Driver

There needs to be a space between the command and the target. Thus: cd<space>/tmp
