Re: [Project] Flash

I know this is moving away from the OP idea of a browser based method of viewing Youtube but i think the best idea currently may be Whitey. Don't let the fact that it is a command line program put you off as it is very easy to use and will fill the gap until a browser based solution is found. If you...

Flash video

I know that the Pi cannot view Youtube videos in a web browser as is has "a lack of Flash or HTML5 support". I use Whitey (yt) to view them from the command line and was looking for an explanation of how it achieves this. I'd possibly have a guess that .flv is only a container and that Whitey ignore...

Re: install claws-mail

Type

Code: Select all

claws-mail
in a terminal if that works then it is installed ok. Sometimes i find that a GUI reboot updates the start menu so that is worth a try. If it is installed ok but a GUI reboot doesn't work search for adding items to start menu or desktop whichever you prefer and go from there

I'm not actually after a command line mp3 player, i usually use mpg123 for that, i was only starting it from the command line to see the output messages. I suppose there is a log file for deadbeef errors but i just read them from the terminal. The issue is clearly something to do with it looking for...

Re: sound, maybe I'm an idiot

That's a pretty cool tool. It seems that deadbeef is actually running and playing the track although a can't hear anything possibly because i need the options to tell it which sound device to use. However with no GUI i cannot access any options. It all goes back to that error: selected GUI plugin no...

Re: Arch Linux Arm not starting up on my Pi

I haven't used arch on the Pi but the normal PC version doesn't install GUI. I had to do something like:

Code: Select all

pacman -S lxde 
If that is not right the exact command can be found in the Arch wiki pages just google "archwiki" and it comes up first.

Re: import os

It would appear the confusion is my end, just for a change:).

So i thought they were the same thing but just noticed the Pi window is titled Python ...

Re: Catfish - for file searching in LXDE

Is anyone else finding this to be very buggy? Try searching the file system for ddb_gui for example and it will throw a fatal error every time. It also seems extremely slow even allowing for the Pi's low power.

Similar problem here, Trust 10 port powered usb 2.0 hub even with just the mouse plugged into it (keyboard in other Pi usb socket) makes X extremely slow and will not recognise mouse. Guess i should have read the verified peripherals page before shelling out:(.
