OSMC on Raspberry Pi 2 with some extra’s (VNC)

In installed #OSMC on my 2.

It works like a charm, but as I do not always want to turn on the projector to play with it (costs so much energy) I installed a VNC server. OSMC does not have X installed, so tightvncserver did not work.

On the OSMC forum I found a working solution.

First I used this from :
https://github.com/patrikolausson/dispmanx_vnc

Then I made sure starts on boot with the help of this :

An interesting new project to try on a Raspberry Pi:

Streisand sets up a new server running L2TP/IPsec, OpenSSH, OpenVPN, Shadowsocks, Stunnel, and a Tor bridge. It also generates custom configuration instructions for all of these services. At the end of the run you are given an HTML file with instructions that can be shared with friends, family members, or fellow activists.

Raspberry Pi + services

Those who met me the last 3 months know I have a Raspberry Pi. It is one of my pet subjects and I seize many opportunities to talk about it.

The wonderful little computer really gives me a lot of pleasure and learning Debian, setting up servers and generally just playing with the Command Line Interface. Something still alien for me having grown-up in the Apple world.

Currently I am setting it up at home and use it to get more into, as said, Debian. But also OpenVPN, LAMP and such. In the end I’d like to experiment hosting a small range of nifty services for me and my closest friends and relatives. Luckily I also have acces to a full blow VPS must any of these turn into a succes 🙂

So far I am breaking new ground with Irssi, Screen and with Baïkal

In the meanwhile, keep an eye on kadr.nl and let me know if you have nice projects you know that fit on a Pi. I keep my own To Pi List here.
