I installed Firefox through the Store app but found it to be very slow. That may be caused by the fact that I’ve only got the 256mb Pi but I did check the memory manager and it showed plenty of free RAM. Dunno.
One thing I have managed to get installed is LIRC. I manually downloaded the package (can’t remember the link at the minute) and installed it to the SD card. There was a font problem initally but though playing around, I seem to have sorted it.
The Pi is now running IRC and I’m sat in the rather excellent #tymkrs chat room.
Now to see if I can find a VNC client…….
