Re: Chrome OS for Raspberry Pi Flash?

Went to the reddit- found how to install pepper flash. Unfortunately for me this is beyond my current skill level. Hopefully with a future update or release the pepper flash add on will be pre-installed/enabled and the start up screen problem will be fixed (I did not even know that was a problem unt...

Chrome OS for Raspberry Pi Flash?

I have just installed the new Chrome OS for the Raspberry Pi on my Pi2 B. It works fine. The only thing that I have not been able to get to work is Flash on the Chrome browser. When checking for Flash it comes up that it is installed but disabled. Trying to follow what I can find about enabling it f...

Re: Any way to make the text on the Scratch interface larger

I saw that response and it is not what I am asking. I know - as said - that I can go through the config file for Raspbian - but I don't want to touch that. Other software running on Raspbian each have a way to increase the size of the text and/or interface to be able to see it with limited vision. T...

Any way to make the text on the Scratch interface larger?

I am running Scratch on Raspbian Jessie. The screen resolution is fine for most things but the text on the Scratch menus is minuscule as is the text on the programming blocks. Scratch increased to full screen is no better - and Raspbian does not let one change monitor resolution on the fly - it requ...

Re: What is the best OS for raspberry pi 2?

The nice thing about the RaspPi is that you can have multiple OS's for the price of an SD card or running multiple through NOOBs on one card. For the RaspPi 2 I find that Ubuntu Mate 15.04 runs the fastest and it is designed to work with the Pi2's ARM7 best. If you have never used Linux before start...

Re: Why is my Pi2 slower than my Acer one?

The browsers in Raspbian are very slow. Try Ubuntu Mate 15.04 which takes advantage of the improvements in the Pi2 and has regular Firefox included. It runs much faster and Firefox runs much better than Iceweasal, Chrome, or the stock browser in Raspbian.

Better Browser?

What is the best browser for Raspbian? Ice Weasel is slow and takes a long time to load webpages. The stock browser that is included with Raspbian is faster but it loads some full websites as mobile sites. There must be a better browser. Any suggestions?

Re: Ubuntu Mate Needs its own forum sub-category in this sec

Ubunto Mate 15.04 is the Ubuntu distribution with a GUI featured on this RaspPi.org website and those trying it are finding it preferable to Raspbian - at least those on the forum dedicated to this distro on its creator's site. BUT the problem is that it creates some problems for those with the Rasp...

Get Ubuntu Mate fully installed - which you already have done. Now follow the instructions on the link given in the response above to Resize File System using fdisk. Do it from the Ubuntu terminal and you will now have all of the available space on your 32 gb SD card. Look in the Caja file manager a...

Re: Looking for a decent BASIC Language interpreter for Rasp

I guess you're running it in X windows, not from the console? The console automatically runs fullscreen... If under X windows, the window it opens isn't resizable on the fly (as you've found), but you can set it to fill the screen when you start it up (it uses 640 x 480 by default) so specify the w...
