Hello Mycroft users,
I’ve been working for some time on a mycroft raspberry pi 3 image that uses the google voicehat.
And today I put our diskimage online, for you to use,
The image is 1.9GB zipped, 3,7Gb unzipped, and will expand to your sd card,
_It’s the default 0.9.10 mycroft version, with an updated kernel, and a slightly changed Wifi setup. _
The new mycroft wifi setup had a password check that did not work on the newer kernel, so we disabled it.
So be sure to type in the right wifi password!! It will not get checked by the webgui program.
You can also use ssh, it’s enabled on the image. Username password = pi / mycroft as usual.
It also has some hidden gems, like a ntfs usb disk backup to image feature, which also does a pishrink afterwards, chromecast and sonos auto-dj and some of our own preinstalled skills. All these can also be removed of course. This version also has a gui installed, start it with startx, or set it up with raspi-config. Also has some code to use the button, and power the lights in the button.
I will be explaining building the google AIY, setting up the image and using the tools in a tutorial later, but it’s basically the same as setting up the default picroft. Setup the wifi, pair on home.mycroft.ai and adjust your settings, like custom name in home.mycroft.ai,
UPDATED Just updated to a new 0.9.14 image, It should show the pairing code in the cli. Loading the skills can still take some time on boot. Updates to the latest version on reboot.
