First off…wonderfull project! *if it works…I hope…I really hope!
I’m having a nightmare installing the Picroft initiative tho…
-Playstation 3 eye
-3.5 jack plug output speaker
-Realtek USB Wifi dongle
Ok, here it goes:
Yesterday I tried installing the Picroft image using the stable version of this link: https://mycroft-ai.gitbook.io/docs/using-mycroft-ai/get-mycroft/picroft
I first installed it with a network cable attached and it went fine…untill after the succesfull sound test…and pairing, I could scream ‘Hey Mycroft’ as loud as I could, but nothing…silence…total silence… to make matters worse, I tried to go from a cable to a Wifi-setup, saw on the same page (see link above) that Mycroft doesn’t work from 5Ghz Wifi, so I tried to use my USB-Wifi-dongle it would not connect, no matter what I tried.
So today, I just tried to reinstall it all, I did remove the USB-Wifi-dongle, rewrote the image, then again wifi failure *using the standard pi4 Wifi, just skipped that…and continued…now I did have Mycroft say something! *because of the no-Network I skipped the update to latest version… from there I was in the cli interface…there finally was also a number next to the microphone-meter but nothing… no reaction when I said ‘Hey Mycroft’… then I typed in ‘help’… Mycroft spoke and said it wasn’t done booting…after like 20 mins…
So…then I did a sudo reboot, skipped the network setup again (since it couldn’t find my 2.4 Ghz SSID) and ran a Wifi scan with the sudo command…it did find all my 5Ghz SSID’s…so I rebooted and chose option 3 for wifi and adjusted the name of the 5ghz SSID…and…was in business…Wifi-wise.
Then Mycroft began to update…a true color-fest, red, orange and white…asked me to continue after some failed stuff (no option to retry)…after completing what it could I did a reboot, it couldn’t find the Wifi…opted for option 3, changed nothing and hit ctrl-X…then it connected with Wifi…and couldn’t resolve github.com and got a ModuleNotFoundError on a module ‘lingua_franca’…I guess this could be right since I know no France…
Ok, so I’m quite the optimistic guy…but really, what can I do to make this work?
Please help! *I’m not really Linux tech savvy…but mostly do get things done
