Re: Latest Version of Firefox(and Thunderbird) on a Raspberry Pi

I am running Raspbian Lite w/ PIXEL, and trying to install firefox. I tried according to OP's advice using: sudo apt install dirmngr echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa/ubuntu trusty main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/firefox.list echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad....

Re: Convince Me To Buy a Raspberry Pi 3

How about buying a Pi0W instead? Its smaller, uses less power, requires less Amps, doesn't get (quite) as hot as a Pi3B, also has built-in wifi and Blutooth 4.0 (which, unlike the Pi3B, appears to work properly) and most importantly, its only $10USD The downside is the GPIO header is unpopulated, t...

Convince Me To Buy a Raspberry Pi 3

I have a Pi 2 currently, and I love it. It has been used for a lot of things, ranging from a simple timelapse camera, being strapped on a bike as an action camera, or compiling source code. I use it every day, mostly for web browsing. I am mostly satisfied with the Pi 2, I just wish it was a little ...

That says the name systems were dropped to weird ones like I am getting, like wlx00f60040658.

Re: Default WiFi adapter name (e.g. wlan0)

Yes, I am. I didn't think it was stretch related, or I would have posted over on the mainstream one.

If you could find it, that would be great.

Default WiFi adapter name (e.g. wlan0)

What is the wifi adapter called by default now (in Raspbian)? It doesn't seems to be wlan0 anymore, for example: sudo ifdown wlan0 returns "Ifdown: unknown interface wlan0" Oddly ifconfig reports the dongle as wlan0. The reason I ask this is because I am setting my pi up as a hotspot, and setting up...

The zip contains two files, libffmpeg_chrome.so.60 and neon/vfp/libffmpeg_chrome.so.60. These should both be copied to /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf, so they should overwrite /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libffmpeg_chrome.so.60 and /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/neon/vfp/libffmpeg_chrome.so.60, respect...

Re: Raspbian Stretch (9.1) has arrived !!

We've found a potential cause of the Chromium crashes; there seems to be something wrong in the ffmpeg library which is shipping in this Chromium package, so it looks as if something may have gone wrong when building it. If anyone would like to try a fix, there are some replacement ffmpeg library f...

YouTube is really hit and miss, sometimes it loads the "Aw, Snap!" page, sometimes it doesn't. There doesn't seem to be any one thing that causes it. Same story on Reddit, some GIF's work, some don't. I did upgrade from Jessie. I don't have much configured, so I will try it on a vanilla Stretch imag...

Re: Raspbian Stretch (9.1) has arrived !!

Great job with the new system! Is it just me, or is Chromium throwing a lot of "Aw, Snap" errors when trying to view a YouTube video? I'll give it some more testing, but it seems about every other refresh it throws the "Aw, Snap" page. The RAM is not even full. I had the same issue when trying to vi...

LXTerminal in the Background

I was wondering if it is possible to embed the terminal in a standard PIXEL image. I have seen screenshots of this, and it look really cool in my opinion. I want the terminal to be usable, but I also do not want it to cover my background shortcuts. It this possible? If so, how?

Re: Spark appearing on screen

Yes, you are not getting enough amps from your PSU. The icon just changed from a rainbow square to a spark, so that is probably why you couldn't find anything on Google about it.

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 16

I figured it out! I successfully added a movie to the library with no issues! It was an issue with optimizations. Kodi is now packing into a .deb file for you guys to download. Will post again when it finishes.

Kodi Audio to Bluetooth Speaker

Is it possible for Kodi to play audio to a Bluetooth speaker? Kodi would not receive any audio, it would strictly send audio to a Bluetooth speaker. I don't actually have a Bluetooth speaker to test it. Thanks!

OK, cool. It will definitely take me some time to iron all this out. About Kodi never opening again, that is because you needed to delete the .kodi folder in your home folder.
