Virtual DJ is not available for Raspbian. What is available is mixxx:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install mixxx


The documentation for mixxx is here: http://mixxx.org/

I've run it on my Pi with my lapdock (this http://raspberry-python.blogspot.com/2012/10/risc-laptop.html but with my Raspbian SD card instead of RISC OS). You have to first startx before you can run it as it doesn't support console graphics through SDL.

It is also a bit crippled under Raspbian, because it normally requires OpenGL for the animation, and the Pi has OpenGL ES. Mixxx detects that and scales down. It can still play and mix music though.

There are other options, depending on exactly what you want to do.

definately will try this .. whats the audio latency like?

mixxx also can be used with multiple audio interfaces so could possibly use the inbuilt audio for headphones and a usb interface for main out.

I saw some other post somewhere where someone said there was some problem with installing the QT libraries mixxx needs and was looking for that to see if this:

might change things ... but this post suggests that it might just work anyway! ..

While saying I am a total Linux newbie is not totally true, I was always provided "locked" Linux environments by my employer or school! That would prompt for a login: before running a batch file to take me to other environments, read XWindow or MSdos, or running shell command line searches in logfiles using grep!

So honestly, I would not be able to compile anything!

Can I ask either share the step by step, website with instructions or better an ISO image to get Mixxx working on a Rasperry Pi (B version.)
Would be tremendously appreciated!
