This guide describes how to install the Bodhi Linux operating system on your computer, how to customize it, and how to install the software applications you will want to use (web browser, email client, office applications, photo software, media player, etc). It is a practical step-by-step guide rather than an academic description of the Bodhi system, but at relevant points it will give links to explanatory material on the web.It grew out of notes prepared for a University of the Third Age (U3A) computer group in the UK, some of whose members wished to migrate to Linux from Windows following Microsoft's decision to cease supporting Windows XP. I hope, though, that it will prove useful to a wider audience, including existing Linux users who are coming to Bodhi for the first time.Bodhi Linux is highly customizable and can be tweaked in numerous ways. However, a step-by-step guide such as this is necessarily prescriptive, so that by following it you end up with a very specific desktop profile. Don't worry about that. The point is that having learnt how to create and save that profile, you are then in a position to set up your own profile, either by playing around with what you've already produced or by starting afresh. And if you mess things up you can easily restore your saved profile. And as for the various applications that you will be installing as you work through this guide, they can be easily removed and replaced with alternatives.I should emphasize that this is not an official Bodhi Linux publication, and that I have no connection of any kind with the Bodhi Linux developers. Like Bodhi itself (and indeed most Linux products), it is given away free of charge. However, if you find it helpful and, more importantly, if you like Bodhi and continue to use it, I would encourage you to make a donation to Bodhi Linux to support its further development. The donate link is on the Bodhi Linux home page at www.bodhilinux.com.

Printed in full color. Most of the book is targeted at beginners in computing and programming. A few parts, such as the small electronics project and setting up a web server, assume some intermediate skills. The Raspberry Pi is one of the most successful open source hardware projects ever. For less than $40, you get a full-blown PC, a multimedia center, and a web server--and this book gives you everything you need to get started. You'll learn the basics, progress to controlling the Pi, and then build your own electronics projects. This new edition is revised and updated with two new chapters on adding digital and analog sensors, and creating videos and a burglar alarm with the Pi camera. Get your Raspberry Pi up and running and doing cool stuff. You'll start with the basics: adding hardware, installing and configuring Debian Linux, and customizing the Pi's firmware to get the most out of your hardware. Then the fun begins. You'll connect the Pi to your home network, surf the web, and tweet messages. You'll learn how to get the most out of Midori, the Pi's standard browser, and control the desktops of other PCs with the Pi. Then you'll explore the Pi's versatility with a series of home projects. Turn it into a web server in your home network; convert the Pi into a powerful multimedia center so you can watch high-definition video and listen to your favorite music; and play classic video games. Then you'll use the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi to build your own electronics projects, such as an "out of memory" alarm. You'll learn how to use digital and analog sensors with the Pi, even though the Pi doesn't have analog input ports! Finally, you'll set up the Pi camera, create your own time-lapse videos, and build an automatic e-mailing burglar alarm. Power to the Pi! What You Need You need a Raspberry Pi and several things that you probably already have at home, such as a keyboard, a mouse, a monitor/TV set, and an SD card. To build the electronic projects you need a few cheap parts and the Pi camera.
