Trouble with audio playing vimeo videos.

I am having a problem with bad audio distortion playing videos at the vimeo website. There is static but I can't make out any words or music. I purchased the license keys at the pi store, and commands "vcgencmd codec_enabled MPG2" & "vcgencmd codec_enabled WVC1" confirm the codecs are enabled at sta...

I can't purchase a license key from PI Store.

I have tried using Firefox and Chromium browser, but it doesn't matter what I use Paypal will not allow me to buy anything. It tells me it cannot purchase at this time, and just keeps sending me back to the merchant. I have been trying to buy a license key for several months now. Is it a problem the...

Re: Quick instructions 4 compiling pidgin plugins

You simply don't know how things work: The pidgin developers have to add the new plugin to Debian "upstream" and it will find its way into Raspbian sooner or later (but not in current Jessie release). If you want it now, you have to compile and test it yourself. If it works you can create a deb pac...

Re: Quick instructions 4 compiling pidgin plugins

... Raspian is very different from debian in certain ways. Raspian doesn't use xorg config for one thing, and it is completely mysterious how you configure whatever it does use. The configuration manager of lxde is not the same as anything you'll find in debian. It very easy to run LXDE without the...

Re: Quick instructions 4 compiling pidgin plugins

Why shouldn't they solve it. There was no need to create desktop environments either. People could just learn the command line. There are no "Raspbian Developers" in a strict sense. It's just a rebuilt Debian for Armv6 to be compatible with all RPis. There are some exceptions, though. The Foundatio...

Re: Some how I have lost scrolling on my mouse (update).

Turned out to be hardware not software. I put the mouse on another computer and it did the same thing. I cleaned the mouse thoroughly with rubbing alcohol,paying particular attention to the scroll wheel, let it dry overnight and that fixed it.

Re: pi-packages won't accept my root password

I know how to use the command line, but thank you anyway. I am trying to set up the computer for my parents, to replace a windows computer, and want a gui installer called pi-packages.

Anyway, I recently did a distribution upgrade and that solved the problem. pi-packages updates & installs now.
