Re: Python 3(.2.3) and Pygame on Rasbian Wheezy

I can't see a way to edit so I'mma just double post, but went through and did the python3-dev install and now have working Pygame with Python 3! Thanks!

Shame I have to run my game outside of X or it chugs so bad haha.

Re: Python 3(.2.3) and Pygame on Rasbian Wheezy

That is exactly what will happen if you don't install python3-dev first. Have fun! Ah thanks! I'll give it a go when I get back after my driving lesson. Oh and a note to anyone else who is trying this, if you try and do the libsdl installs as described on that wiki page under Pygame, quite a few of...

Re: Python 3(.2.3) and Pygame on Rasbian Wheezy

To get PyGame installed for Python 3.2 under Raspbian, follow the instructions in the PyGame section here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Debian_Python3 You will also need to do sudo apt-get install python3-dev python3-numpy before starting. Ignore everything else on that page! Ah thanks! I was following th...

Python 3(.2.3) and Pygame on Rasbian Wheezy

As the title says I'm using the latest Rasbian Wheezy image, and it only comes with Pygame installed for Python 2 (annoyingly.) I have a game I've written in Python 3 (.1.3 to be precise), and I want to see if/how well it runs on the Pi. Now, as far as I'm aware there is no easy way for me to get Py...

Re: PyGame, Python 3.1 and Debian

Well, that completely broke my Debian Image. Somehow. I tried to run IDLE 3 but it wouldn't do anything, restarted the Pi and now it can't find any programs. Restarted again and now it fails to run "startx"

Re: PyGame, Python 3.1 and Debian

Hmm just ran it with sudo at the start and it finished in like 15 seconds. The wiki says 15 mins... Just ran the install too and it seems to have worked. Fingers crossed.

Re: Debian (19/4) Display on LG TV

<t>I'm really glad the newest Debian image actually added the overscan thing, cause when I started up my RPi my TV doesn't adjust automatically, and in fact doesn't even have any built in options. I ended up writing my own config file with an adjustment of 30px top and bottom and 40 at the sides.<br...

Couldn't you just install Synaptic and browse the "Email" section? There's a bunch of clients in there.

Re: Installing FUSE, the Spectrum emulator. Arch or Debian instructions wanted.

@TopherBrink that's a great guide! Thanks for that, I'll give it a go if I get a second SD card to put Arch on to. Really easy to follow, and hopefully I can apply it to other apps!

Re: PyGame, Python 3.1 and Debian

<t>Hey there,<br/> <br/> I've been messing around with PyGame for a little while before my Pi arrived, but all the prior work I've done has been written in Python3 (and PyGame 1.9). As the RPi came with Python 2.6 on by default (as well as Pygame 1.8), I went ahead and got Python 3.1 fron Synaptic.<...
