Chromium is an open-source version of this browser. Simply type the following. Debian $ sudo apt-get install chromium-browser If you receive any errors running this command, try running $ sudo ...

"In normal circumstances there is NEVER a need to run rpi-update as it always gets you to the leading edge firmware and kernel and because that may be a testing version it could leave your RPi unbootable". https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=916911#p916911 Even the rpi-update documentation now warns "Even on Raspbian you should only use this ...

Yes, VLC can be installed on the recommended Debian image using sudo apt-get install vlc. As far as I understand, VLC (>= 1.1) uses the VAAPI to decode video, if it is available. VAinfo should tell you whether hardware decoding is available and since all packages are available for armel, hardware acceleration should work from the technical side. Since ...

Try this answer: No PUbKey Error. I am not sure but I think you only need the generic debian key here. I tried it on my system and it added ok. Let me know if that resolves it for your use. So, to be clear, and using the OP as source for the key in the following example: gpg --keyserver pgpkeys.mit.edu --recv-key 8B48AD6246925553 gpg -a --export ...

The easiest solution is to use Yaourt (Yet AnOther User Repository Tool). You can install with: pacman -S yaourt And then sync with the AUR: yaourt -Syy You can then search AUR packages: yaourt package-name Which will provide interactive prompts for installation. Or if you know the package name exactly: yaourt -S package-name Most pacman commands ...

I got Teamspeak 3 running using qemu running a x86 Debian squeeze. There is some room for improvement for sure, but for now that's what worked for me. I hope I didn't forget something. First of all thanks to Dietmar and meigrafd of the raspberry pi forum. Without their work I wouldn't have succeeded. How to Installing qemu We need some software apt-get ...

[Note: Later in 2013 the Pi Foundation announced Raspbian now ships with Oracle hard-float.] The oracle 8 preview works for me, thus far. Compiling is slow on the pi, surprise, but the jre seems to run quite fast once it loads. I think bearbin's answer is pretty definitive but if you want a simple way to try oracle: Download. You get a .tar.gz file, ...

Yes! First, you'll need to install curl, git, and build-essential for your operating system. If you don't know how to install software for your system please refer to How do I install new software?. Next you need to download and run the bash script they provide. $ curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby Next you can do one of two things. ...

raspbian package repo contains raspberrypi-bootloader package which contains firmware, kernel and kernel modules that rpi-update downloads. The version is not the latest, but files should be fine and stable. Now it shows a 20130902 version, so it's about 2 months old. The package is installed by default and is updated when a new version arrives in repo. So ...

VLC is available in the extra repository for Arch Linux ARM. However, unless I'm mistaken, VLC doesn't yet support hardware acceleration with the GPU on the Pi. This means playback wont be as good as using OMXPlayer (see this question for more information).

As of Go 1.6 (February 2016), an official ARMv6 package is available for download. So, if your Raspberry Pi has ARMv6 or v7 (see cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep ARM), then just do something like: wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.6.2.linux-armv6l.tar.gz sudo tar -xzf go1.6.2.linux-armv6l.tar.gz -C /usr/local sudo chgrp -R staff /usr/local/go export ...

OpenCV is now available in apt-get. You can search for it: apt-cache search opencv If you are doing development, just do: sudo apt-get install libopencv-dev At the time of this writing, it is OpenCV 2.3

Assuming you're using Raspbian, you need to find out which .deb file you need, and transfer those to your Raspberry Pi, and place them in /var/cache/apt/archives/partial, and then just use the command: sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/xxxx where xxxx is the exact name of the .deb file you want to install If you need to find dependencies, http:/...

There's already a go compiler in, e.g., raspbian, which you can find with apt-cache search golang. This looks to be version 1.0.2. The site you linked has pre-compiled tarballs of 1.3.3 available for the pi. You just need to download the appropriate one -- it is clearly indicated. Put the tarball in /usr/local and: tar -xzf go.1.3.3.linux-arm~multiarch-...

On a B, B+, 2B or 3B you can't do it without something to write the SD card. The only things these models can boot from out of the box is a SD card. You may well find that you can use a camera or an older smartphone as a card reader (newer smartphones tend to use MTP rather than mass storage, so they are not suitable for this) to write your card. On a ...

As far as I know Google does not (yet) distribute Chrome binaries for Linux/ARM. (The only ARM binaries are for Android and these will not be compatible.) You might be able to cross-compile Chromium for Linux/armel (I have not tried but I am willing to bet that the RasPi itself is not powerful enough to compile it.) Also keep in mind that if you were able ...

Note that apt-get gives you a very old version of Chromium (v6). Hexxeh has a much newer build (v22): http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=11800 http://hexxeh.net/?p=328117859

From looking at the log file I came across the line INFO: HTTP Listener started: port=8080 java.io.IOException: Failed to start a listener: winstone.ssl.HttpsListener This tells us that either the port you are using 8080 is in use but you have run netstat and established that it is not listed- so its available and not causing the exception.

In my case a different key ID was missing when I tried to install backports.The answer above +1 also worked on my raspberry pi3 with raspbian jessie. I'm writing this just to make a point that you can install missing keys with the same method. Bash terminal message was this: Get:4 http://ftp.debian.org jessie-backports/main armhf Packages [690 kB] Get:5 ...
