Are you looking for a powerful application that you can use to work with images on the Raspberry Pi? Well, you are in the perfect spot. This post will give you a step-by-step guide on installing GIMP on your Raspberry Pi. GIMP, which stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program, is a powerful raster-based open-source software developed by a small community of developers.

  • No matter what operating system you are running or what tasks you are executing, taking screenshots from time to time always comes in handy. Maybe you are writing a piece of code and want to ask for clarification on several lines on your social media platforms; a screenshot would be better than copying the lines of code and pasting them on the chatbox.

  • Teamviewer is a proprietary desktop application allowing desktop sharing, File Transfer, and Remote Desktop access. If you have never used this application, think of it as a VNC connection but with several advanced features. Incidentally, if you want to enable VNC access on your Raspberry Pi, please look at our post, “How to Set up VNC Server on Raspberry Pi.”

  • Like any other Linux distribution, the Raspberry Pi OS has several pre-installed packages. Due to various reasons, you might be interested to know what kind of packages and apps are pre-installed by default. Some of the most common reasons include getting rid of bloatware that might slow down your system, or you are doing a tutorial, and you want to tell your audience what new packages they can expect on the latest release of the Raspberry Pi OS.

  • There are many browsers to choose from nowadays, including some focused on Web3 technology like the Brave Browser. However, at times we tend to stick to browsers that we are used to, maybe because of the features that make them stand out from the rest. If you are running the official Raspberry Pi OS on your Raspberry, you will notice that it comes with Chromium as the default web browser.

  • The art style is one thing that makes Sonic Robo Blast 2 (SRB2) stand out from the rest of the fangames out there. The level environment is 3D, but the object, enemies, and the character you are playing are 2D. That might sound like a hell of work to do platforming with that art style.

  • When Google first launched the Chromebooks, it was a surprise to many since these devices only came with simple operating systems – the Chrome OS, a file manager, and several web applications which you can run on the Chrome web browser. However, with time, users have come to appreciate the reliability of Chrome OS due to its fast computation making it an excellent option for handling lightweight tasks.

  • The default storage for the Raspberry Pi is the Micro SD card with a max theoretical speed of 50 MB/s on the latest Raspberry model (Pi 4) and 25 Mb/s on earlier models (Pi3, Pi2, etc.). Unfortunately, from the tests we have conducted on different Raspberry Pi boards, we saw that most of the SD cards we use on the Pi never reach speeds greater than 38 MB/s.

  • Duke Nukem 3D is a first-person 3D shooter game developed by 3D Realms and first released in 1996. Along with Doom,  The game is among the few games that popularized the first-person shooter games. Game reviewers have highly praised it for the interactivity between the player and the game environments, well-designed level difficulty, and the overall gameplay.

  • Let’s say you have a couple of physical servers and virtual machines which you want to monitor, and you don’t just want to see whether they are online or not (since there are so many ways of doing that). You want to view more information like CPU utilization, RAM utilization, disk read and write, and other metrics. Zabbix is the perfect fit for that.

  • Whether a front-end or back-end web developer, you might require NodeJS when building various applications and projects. In plain English, the developers of NodeJS took Javascript, which is usually confined to a browser (has access to only the webpage), and enabled it to run on your computer.
