Redirected to PayPal?

Wed Feb 05, 2014 9:17 pm

I am unable to download anything from the Pi Store. When I click on download i get a window with this at the top:

"You are now being

Code: Select all

redirected to PayPal
.
If you are not redirected in the next 5 seconds please click the button below."

Nothing else in the window; no button. Nothing else happens.

Any ideas?

Hi,

We're aware of this issue and are currently investigating. I'll let you know when it's resolved.

For what it's worth, I believe it only affects recently-created accounts.

Apologies for the inconvenience,

The Pi Store has not been active for some time now.

A large selection of software is available for free from the standard Raspbian repositories that your Pi is already configured to use.

Were you after anything specific?

Definitely still not working, same error as received above i.e. Redirecting to PayPal etc, without any button to click.

That's because the PiStore is a busted flush that's been dead since January 2015 and the company behind it has gone into liquidation/receivership.

Use the repository, that has most software that you need. What do you need from the store?

I don't understand what this has to do with the Pi store?

What do you mean by "the sd card is locked"?

PiStore doesn't work anymore? Is that why they didn't send me my IndieCity confirmation email? Is there any other way of getting the Cave Story port, the Dune game, and the other games on there?

It has been dead as a dodo for a year.

If you can't find things on a Google search except at the PiStore then assume they are lost forever.

Hi there,
I have had the same problem with my pi. It says "You are being redirected to PayPal. If you are not redirected in the next 5 seconds please click the button below." There in no button and I am not being redirected. Why??? How do I download stuff even though it is free and when I want to download anything it shows that message. Does that mean my pi is useless and I cant download anything?

I don't know where you got that idea???? The Pi Store never was the mainstream way to get programs and don't think it ever worked very well even when it was running, but I never really tried it.

You can use a Package Manager to search for and/or install new programs. (There are many tens of thousands of packages). The PM will also show what packages are already installed and can be used to remove installed packages.

The Aptitude PM is already installed in Raspbian images, but IMO is a bit cumbersome to use. Aptitude is a text based menu program and will run from the command line with or without GUI loaded.

Code: Select all

sudo aptitude
Another PM is Synaptic which is a GUI PM. You have to install it however.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install synaptic
After installation run from the LXTerminal command line (not from the menu):

Code: Select all

 sudo synaptic
The very newest images have a new PM.
See details on how to install here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/latest ... an-update/

When searching for software from other sources don't even bother to DL the program unless the author specifically says it will run on the RPi and they give detailed instructions on how to install and run.
Go here for my RPi writeup. Basic config, Serial Port add-on etc:

There were a couple of (free) things I got from the PiStore (before it died a year ago), but it was clearly an experiment that had completely failed to gain any popularity. It was dying long before Indiecity died, because if not someone (RPF / SWAG store / Pimoroni) would have taken it over and kept it running and up to date.
