You need to edit the file /boot/config.txt as root and uncomment the following parameters and give them these values:

hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=23

The value of hdmi_mode will give a resolution of 1280x768 which may still be too large for your display. Please refer to the same /boot/config.txt file for other possible values of hdmi_mode. Don't forget to reboot after you make the changes.

And how did you perform the upgrade? Did you use the do-release-upgrade command or edit the apt sources.list files by hand? Or something different all together?

Hey Jo,

A more Linux-esque way of doing this is by adding an X config file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with the proper settings for your display. But the xrandr method works as well, yes :)

You should set hdmi_mode to 28 because of the 60 Hz refresh rate. Then reboot the raspberry pi and you should be set. I have set the hdmi_mode to 42 and it works like a charm. No need to set hdmi_cvt.

Does your Lubuntu system boot into a desktop? My Ubuntu system does (it starts the MATE desktop) and IIRC yours into LXDE. You should be able to add a start up application that starts the vino server for you. That’s what I did and it works like a charm.

Also have a look at the vino config settings using the dconf editor. it could be dconf2. I am not sure so please check yourself. There should be an option to keep vino running after you disconnect.

I use the vino VNC server on Ubuntu and the RealVNC client (the free one!!!) on my Mac. Vino needs to not be encrypted for this to work. By the way, I use the RealVNC client on my iPad as well and that works too.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'guider settle time; trying to understand' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

If I understand all discussion around the settle options correctly then the first settle means that capture will wait that amount of seconds after guiding resumes so guiding can settle after dithering, while the second one means that the dithering phase will continue that amount of seconds. The difference is that the first one allows guiding to become stable again after dithering which is what many people on this forum asked for so the guide star doesn’t swim around the fov and stars get sharper. In short, you want to set that first value and you may ignore the second value.

Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.
