The first circuit I have created for my Pi is to simply flash an LED then, with this working, make a morse code machine.

When I first got my Pi I wanted to set it up so I could use LXDE without a mouse. To that end I set up a number of keyboard shortcuts for frequent tasks and menus. In Raspian this is done by editing:
From command line type:
or from a terminal window inside LXDE:
Under the keyboard tag add:
<keybind key= “Name of key”>
<action name= “Execute”>
So for example to make the Window’s button open the LXDE menu (similar to its function in Windows) add the following under keyboard (Super_L is the code the the Windows key on the keyboard and “lxpanelctl menu” the command for opening the menu:
or to make F4 open a terminal:
More information on setting up shortcut keys in OpenBox can be found here:
though it should be noted that on the Pi the file to modify is lxde-rc.xml not rc.xml.
This a blog for all my adventures in computing.
As part of my day job I do lots of work in .NET technologies and SQL Server.
At other times I like tinkering. I’m currently playing with the Raspberry Pi especially the GPIO ports in the hopes of eventually making a robot. I’ve also been learning Python to write a jukebox for my living room and games.
This blog will be about everything I discover that somebody else might find useful (and stuff I might find useful in a year’s time when I’ve forgotten it!)
