Re: Forums not working properly

I've been looking in to it. Think I know what's causing it - and have alerted our web hosting people, currently waiting to hear back from them on the issue.

Re: Installing Software

The action you're missing, I believe, is the -i flag (install). Try:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i filename.deb
I assume the software you're trying to install is not in apt? (what is it?)

See installing software in the documentation.

Re: Edmodo group for children who are RPi users to connect

Simon, I believe the use of some online network could be a useful tool in the classroom, even for younger children. I feel that blacklisting things you see as "bad" is not the way to make progress, and a better solution would be to find a suitable medium that works. Teachers make decisions they feel...

Re: WEBSITE AND FORUMS DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE

That's 7am BST, i.e. 1.5 hours from now. Which means I'm not going to get much of a good night's sleep.

WEBSITE AND FORUMS DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE

Hi all

Just a quick note for anyone who's about this early: the website and forums will be unavailable from 7am today for "scheduled maintenance".

I aim to have everything back up "exactly as it was before" by late morning.

Hope you enjoyed the April Fool.

Ben

Update: we're back

Beware: phishing DM notification emails

Hi everyone Please be cautious of any emails you receive notifying you of direct messages on the Raspberry Pi forums. There is a clone of our site at storyhub.actionaid.org and we've received reports of users of this forum getting DM notification emails linking to the clone, which will prompt you to...

Re: actionaid.org forum email phishing?

Hi

We're aware of this. It seems they cloned our site on that subdomain (the site at the root domain seems a legit charity).

I'm meeting with the team today to see what we should do. Will put a forum announcement out in the mean time to alert people.

Thanks

Re: Raspberry Pi Berlin users?

I'm going to be in Berlin for 2 weeks next month, from 11-25th September. Would love to meet up with any Pi enthusiasts while I'm over there. Will be checking out the hackspaces and whatnot - but get in touch if you'd like to meet up.

Are there any regular Pi events in Berlin now?
