Re: HTML Editor.

Bluefish is in the repository, so you install it easily:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install bluefish
(or sudo apt-get install bluefish if you like old style better)

Re: Change your default password.

So far it seems to work well. When using sudo it will ask fo...

Re: Geany broken in Stretch ?

I found another solution (to my own problem !) after much searching and some experimentation : Change the first line after [tools] in ~/.config/geany/geany.conf to terminal_cmd=x-terminal-emulator --command="/bin/sh %c" and reboot Great! So it seems the x-terminal-emulator command has changed a bit...

Re: Geany broken in Stretch ?

I have not solved the problem, but I did found a work-around. Under Edit / Preferences / Terminal check "Execute programs in the VTE". Geany will run your program in its own terminal at the bottom of the window. It's not really an alternative for a full terminal window, but it might help a bit. Any ...

Delete it (the bz2-file) and install FileZilla in the usual way from the standard repository:

I found the article interesting too. It amazes me that a multi-seat set-up is a sort of a special case, even in Linux which is supposed to be a multi-user OS. But that has probably more to do with the hardware side of things than with the basic OS? That people hardly notice that they are working on ...

Re: .wav file: play from a C/C++ program (Raspbian)

Playing a .wav file with a single function call with the name of the .wav file sounds like the most basic operation I can imagine, so 1dot0 asks the right question. I can totally see code like this: if (error) playwav("error.wav"); else playwav("okay.wav"); It may be trivial, but useful. For many pe...

Installing Enigmail and generating the encryption key (took about an hour) went fine.

Re: Icedove Enigmail Pi3

What fruitoftheloom is trying to tell you is that you have a very high (beta) version of Thunderbird, and more to the point: not the version that comes standard with Raspbian. And that's where the problem is, that version is not working with Enigmal from the Raspian repository. The Enigmail website ...

Re: Is a PI 3 a viable desktop replacement?

Icedove is not a special Pi version of Thunderbird, it's a special Debian (and therefor Raspbian) version of Thunderbird to resolve some licensing issues. However, these licensing issues have been solved, so Debian and Raspbian can use the standard Thunderbird version again. If you update (sudo apt-...

Yes, you can do that. Just follow the instructions on the website and you will have a working bcm2835 library.

But you should know that the wiringPi and pigpio are pre-installed in Raspbian, so they are ready to use.
