Need to try a 512MB Pi on doorbot1 #85
An alternative/additional step to improve doorbot1's reliability might be to install KWeb3, which is a Webkit-based browser written specifically for the Pi and can run without a window manager.
I used it to good effect on a recent install in FACT. From my install notes...
// Install the minimal browser KWeb3
Then add this to /etc/rc.local to have it run automatically:
With the following as the contents of the web_browser script, and the page to display stored as /home/pi/homepage.html:
Just a quick note that the environment on doorbot1 (and 2) is a bit old and crap so installing new software may fail, if anyone gets interested in upgrading the OS they should look at the following scripts:
That does work for setting up a basic doorbot (doorbot3 is in fact built from it) but should have the browser bits added to be complete (and enable it to setup a doorbot1).
