I'm in the same boat. I really need the initial password / login for Occidentalis so I can shell in.

Re: Best Desktop Linux

The windows manager controls menu behaviour, appearance, keyboard shortcuts, etc, so you might want to keep that the same too. LXDE is what it's called. :)

Beginner Friendly Blogs, Links, Posts, etc

Hey guys, These forums have been super helpful, but kind of hard to negotiate (and don't always have everything), so I thought we'd start a link-fest to blogs both within, and without the Foundation website for those wanting to get their teeth stuck into the Pi. Firstly Algorythmic's Blog is slightl...

Re: Hardware-accelerated Midori?

I've no idea about hardware acceleration, but I found that Iceape works better than Midori (you actually have some CPU left, even with a couple of tabs open). You can install it in Raspbian by typing

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get iceape
at the prompt. Maybe a stop-gap until the hardware acceleration can happen.

Re: New RPI 512 MB fails on apt-get upgrade

Thanks for posting this. I guess I've been lucky. I have a SanDisk 16GB class 10 card and haven't run into any of these problems.

Hexy runs on 6v, so the RPi could probably run off the Hexy battery pack too (with a couple of capacitors in the circuit for protection). I can't find the original post now, but it was three hundred and something grams that Hexy could carry without it adversely effecting his mobility. Glad I'm not t...
