Sorry, no that didn’t help.
In any case this probably isn’t a Buster problem. Thanks for your assistanceAugust 21, 2019 at 9:45 am #9609
I was eventually able to install fbi, it may have been a proxy issue at my end that someone silently fixed (pure speculation). The mplayer2 still won’t install however; not a big deal for me since I’m not planning on playing videos.
However I haven’t been able to get pygame to display to fb1 (just opens to the HDMI screen on fb0). This was using the example at https://ozzmaker.com/faq/use-python-display-information-piscreen/
I’ve ended up using the solution posted here:
I.e. opening the frame buffer directly to update: f = open(“/dev/fb1″,”wb”). Is there something I need to install, perhaps an “SDL” package?August 16, 2019 at 9:32 am #9455
Thanks Peter, those commands did the trick nicely.
Referring to the Assisted GPS fix page also helps, so thanks for that as well.August 15, 2019 at 5:10 pm #9436
Thanks for the quick reply Peter! I’ll give your instructions a go, and look forward to seeing the guide when it’s ready.
Regarding your explanation for RX/TX pins, I’m guessing that this only applies when the module is connected to the Pi GPIO pins? Ideally I’d like to leave the GPIO pins free for other modules.
