  1. Past hour
  2. At least no Botox is needed! jeff
  3. The chin and forehead need some work too. I think it's a lost cause.
  4. It does seem like it needs some rhinoplasty… jeff
  5. Today
  6. That's what I expected. I really only have experience with Windows/Mac, mostly windows. I wasn't able to find an icon anywhere and I tried double clicking files. No luck. Actually this was is pretty simple. And if I have to use Bash script, there's no reason not to run the lite version of the OS (which seems only to have the terminal - no "desktop"). I'm happy with this for now. Next step will be to get it to run automatically on boot. Then redo the whole thing with the lite OS (maybe). Then connect it to the DR5000 Thanks so much Chad!!!!!
  7. You might just be able to double click it or something in the GUI. Don't know how the linux GUI things work with shell scripts.
  8. Awesome!! That launched it!!!
  9. so % cd /home/pi/iTrain % ./itrain.sh & see what that does
  10. ls -al /home/pi/iTrain BTW thht other command you used to find it "find" is the command / is where you start. / is the über root directory of the machine -name matches. We wanted to match against anything that had the word "Train" or "train" in it -print means to output the results to the screen 2>/dev/null There are multiple "filehandles" for the shell and 2 is "STDERR" which means the normal place to output errors, which defaults to the shell. You redirected it to the "null" device which basically s
  11. /home/pi/iTrain The file location. That seems positive. I still don't know how to open it. 🤔
  12. Here is a better version find / -name *[Tt]rain* -print 2>/dev/null
  13. A massive amount of stuff.
  14. None of those look like candidates, right? Try % find / -name *train* -print I think that will work. It should give all sorts of stuff back, mostly errors about permissions, but hopefully it gives us a clue. This is the brute force search of the whole machine. It will take a while
  15. This is the "full" install of the OP. It has a lot of bloatware. Once I know what I'm doing I'll probably re-do it with the lite version. pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls -al /opt total 24 drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 May 7 10:56 . drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 May 7 11:23 .. drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 May 7 10:56 minecraft-pi drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 May 7 10:49 pigpio drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 May 7 10:43 vc drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 May 7 10:54 Wolfram
  16. Ok One of the lines shows "opt" "opt" is what some versions of Linux and Unix use as a place for all externally added packages (software added by the user and not included with the system) Try % ls -al /opt

    Beginner UniTrack Questions

    SCARM is free to use track design software that includes databases of Kato Unitrack and Tomix Finetrack among others. It’s a very cost effective way to get a picture of how the systems compare. It’s free to use but it’s limited to a number of track pieces per layout—possibly 100, I forget exactly but it’s not a crippling limitation. Regarding power packs, I do recommend the Kato SX controller and not the older S model. I had problems with the older model (and it eventually melted down, launching my train tangentially off the track at maximum speed). I believe the SX is a better contr
  18.

  19. I finally succumbed and bought a model of the ugly sister. I love it. I first saw this train in the Maglev museum. I thought it must be a concept train. It was just so awful looking. But I've come to develop a certain fascination with it. Sleek body, but what a face!!! The RG Rokko guys stuffed it with tons of these extra foam bits to eliminate any movement in transit. Touching! All rearranged in order in their proper cases.
  20. Don't put the % in. That is just a placeholder for the prompt. Some older shells used % as the shell prompt (yours has your path and a $ as the prompt) So what you type is ls -al / But you know it is a a shell command due to the %
  21. I tried cut/pasting what you just wrote. pi@raspberrypi:~ $ % ls -al / bash: fg: %: no such job
  22. Is there a /opt directory? % ls -al /
  23. I'm making some progress with the Ras Pi. It's running with Raspberry Pi OS. I attached the "Ice Tower" fan and heat sink. I removed the fan for a while as I was curious and was surprised that the heat sink warms up a bit. So I put the fan back on. I'm sure it's unnecessary but the LEDs look nice. SSH is activated and I'm controlling it through VNC. Currently it's on my home wifi. It took me a while to work out how to install iTrain, but I was able to do it with the help of an old post on the iTrain forum. Laughably, I'm stuck at an embarrassingly basic step now. I can't launch th

  25. Nice fixes! on those slick/soft plastics like polyethylene you can also try the new two part CA glues. You apply the one component to one side (like a wet felt tipped marker) and let dry well and then CA (I think maybe regular CA, smells and acts like it) to the other part and then put the parts together. Fuses pretty quickly and very strongly. I’m guessing the one acts as some primer and/or accelerator and when the CA comes in contact it really fuses on pe well. I’ve tried alot of adhesives on these odd plastics like pe and pp and nothing has held well until this stuff. It does not
  26. Because I am not sure if I will ever get a spare drawbar I decided to do some repair. Usual plastic adhesive did not work as well as some solvents didn't. Some super glue did the work after proper cleaning. But a 1 mm thick glueing area will probably not survive for long. A 1x2 mm brass with a small hook shall do it. The hook was made by soldering on a 1x1x2 mm piece of brass. Soldering worked well. I did not forget how to do (It had been a long time since last time soldering brass on models). Was a good training for my brass kits and maybe first part of

    I wished I could read Japanese

    A quite interesting turn to the whole question where the picture was taken: The Australian War Memorial Website changed the description of the picture after I had contacted them, and now also refers to "Kanchanaburi" (with the addition "formerly identified as Ban Pong"). They certainly did not simply change it just because of my mail, but doubtless investigated the facts before they decided to alter the description. https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C43391
