Re: Pixel distribution & iPlayer...?

I might be starting to agree with you. My RPi version 1B is a tad creakily slow. I seem to remember that the XBMC distribution worked reasonably well as a media centre. My real need in the RPi is to get back to 1981 and my BBC Micrcomputer B (Brown Bovery patented BBC in Europe, so the Beeb always h...

Pixel distribution & iPlayer...?

Love the new desktop!
Is Pixel the correct flavour
of Raspbian with which to
run the iPlayer? Or as a
media-centre in general?

If not, which distribution
will allow me to run All4,
My5, iPlayer etc?

Re: Permission denied

Yes, I think the tutorial presupposes more than 5 minutes acquaintance
with Pi Language - sudo is exactly the word I need - thanks!

Re-setting Motion...?

I have been attempting to setup a webcam server
and have made some modifications to Motion. How
do I reset Motion to its default values - perhaps a
reinstall?

Permission denied

I am attempting to follow privateeyepi's tutorial on how to set up a home webcam.
The first instruction is mkdir /home/webcam. Pi's response = mkdir: cannot create
directory '/home/webcam': Permission denied

Well! That was a let-down :(

Raspbmc OK, Raspbian reboots...?

I have had the RPi for about 4 months. It has worked perfectly up until I attempted to add some lines of code to make a webcam server (following this - https://medium.com/p/2d5a2d61da3d). Raspbian now boots up, works for about 2 minutes, then closes down. Changing the 8Gb Raspbian SD to Raspbmc (on ...
