Has n1 used Facebook chat in Midori (Debian) ?

I can't open the facebook chat. The main Facebook page loads fine, but once I click on the chat at the bottom-right, it says 'loading ..' but never gets open.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

To make tightvncserver to run at boot time do the following: sudo nano /etc/rc.local And add this line somewhe...

Re: Keyboard layout

Many Thanks! I've been able to adjust the layout to "us" qwerty settings as well. One note though: rather than using the default keyboard (I can't remember which it was set to... ), I reconfigured my keyboard to an "apple" keyboard, and the Raspberry Pi now takes about five times as long to boot up...

Re: No sound

silly me, it was very easy to make the command 'sudo modprobe snd_bcm2835' sticky at boot time. What happened was I thought /etc/modules was a folder, but it's not, it's a file, so what I did now was just editing this file: sudo nano /etc/modules and added at the bottom in one empty line just the na...

Re: No sound

@justintime was right, after rebooting the sound is lost. there is not /etc/module folder to add a module in it so at this time I'm back to square one, trying to figure out how fix it.

Re: Iceberg Case Project

I preorder 2 cases on modmypi, around $13.17 USD each (total $26.34) including shipping. If you plan to sell this you better accelerate as there are others rushing making all sort of cases.

Re: No sound

@mattheinsane, did you try to open the sound file that opens with the "Music Player" app and got sound or not? mine did got sound and I played an MP3 file and also got sound.

@justintime, those commands should be sticky, no need to repeat them every time you boot.

Re: Raspberry Pi Poor Allocation of Disk Space

I'm gonna have to agree with hawkyhawk14 on this one. After researching on the website http://elinux.org/RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup none of those methods will do anything to change the size of the main partition (partition /). And the only way I got it increased to 14GB from 1.5GB was using the second m...

Re: Unable to install gdm

GDM is already installed.
just edit the file:

/etc/inittab

change the line:

id:2:initdefault:

for:

id:5:initdefault:

After that run gdm setup and make it login automatically.
