Opions for device type not avaliable -> registers desktop as Mark1

It seems like the device type option is no longer available,
as it registers my Ubuntu Desktop as Mark1.
So I’m not able to tell Mycroft to open Firefox etc.

Am I doing something wrong here?

I’m seeing the same thing here as well, as seen in the above image.

My colleague @matheus-mycroft may have some more thoughts here?

Hi @martnnw - can you confirm if you used a GitHub-based install for your Ubuntu Desktop? Are you able to tell me which version of Ubuntu you’re using?
Thanks, Kathy

I followed the instructions on your page, by entering the following commands:

cd ~/
git clone https://github.com/MycroftAI/mycroft-core.git
cd mycroft-core
bash dev_setup.sh

I tried switching to the master branch but it was still the same URL.
It also fails to recognize by cloning: --depth=1 https://github.com/MycroftAI/mycroft-core.git

I’ve also tried it with Raspbian: same problem

Useful debugging info, thanks!

Hi @martnnw, my colleague @matheus-mycroft had a look at this one for you. We believe you may need this Skill


which avoids the dependency on the gi package.

However, it’s not in the mycroft-skills repo so you would need to manually install it. Are you comfortable doing that?

Kind regards,
Kathy

Thanks! I’ve been searching for that skill for a while now!
And yes I’m comfortable doing that :slight_smile:
