Re: Scratch Bug

Lightnin, thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. There are several backgrounds that we can't get to load on the pi. So for example included backgrounds in the outdoors directory that don't work include atomplayground, brickwall1, pool and brickwall-and-stairs. In the i...

Re: Is Scratch really viable on Raspberry Pi?

Hi all - this topic started way back when things were much slower than they are now, but since it pops to the top, people who read the first few posts probably think things are more dire than they now are. Would the mods consider closing it, so folks can start a new one?

Re: Scratch "Bad Header" Issue

This happens on many other systems as well when the storage media isn't unmounted properly - basically the file gets corrupted (as other files may as well). There's no known fix, I'm afraid. :(

The glory of static html blogs on pi

Greetings! After spending a lot of time looking into hosting my own site on the pi, I came across the glory and simplicity of static html blog generators (Pelican, in my case). No need for a database, or any other CPU hogging services. Just an http server and some html to serve is all you need. Here...

Re: Sound in Scratch

Hi all! I'm a member of the Scratch Team who has done some work on the linux packaging. I have a couple of questions / info that might be helpful to those who are doing the packaging for rPi. Does Raspbian use pulseaudio? If it does, then it's probably best to use the pulseaudio driver. The current ...

Re: Scratch Bug

Interesting issue! Can you mention some of the backgrounds that don't load properly? We have a pi here at Scratch headquarters. If you give us step to reproduce, we'll take a look. (It seems likely that it's a general rPi / X display issue of some sort, since the current version of Scratch has been ...

Re: Scratch connectivity

What a lot of different topics this thread contains! :)

re: uploading projects to the Scratch website. Just testing this today, and it seems to work well. So I'm assuming this issue is resolved!

re: PiFace - that's awesome! Shouldn't that be on it's own thread though, so people can find it?

Re: Is Scratch really viable on Raspberry Pi?

Please don't pass it on as the nice people at MIT don't like modded Scratch's on the loose so this is just for testing at the moment :) Thanks for that! To clarify, we've released Scratch under the GPL v2. So it's totally fine to modify the code, as long as you remove our trademarks. We just don't ...

Re: Post your Raspberry Pi server setup!

You can see it all here: www.amosamos.net It's lighthttpd serving my static pages, and the blog (thought) part uses Pelican, an excellent static html blogging engine! (Yep, no need for MySQL - saves a lot of cycles! And it can sync new blog entries via dropbox or ssh) http://blog.notmyidea.org/pelic...

Re: Django on the Raspberry pi

Thanks for making the script! I recently gave it a go and it seemed to work quite well. One thing I'm not sure about, that would be helpful to touch on in the documentation, is how to get Django to display your site via apache (rather than simply using the runserver command.) It appears as though th...
