Picroft 2018-09-12 and the Google AIY Voice Hat


Great to hear you got him working……But the process is not easy.

I did notise that alsamixer were at zerro to - so adding to the script to set it to 75% would be a good idea.
I dont understand why you nedded /home/pi/mycroft-core/ as I remember that that to is done in the scrpt. I did when I did run it…Strange.

I think the picroft scrit could benefit from a rewrite, so installation of hardware were in differet scripts one for every hardware one will write installation for.
That would make the installation of picroft simpler - get mycroft up and running, and then add hardware. But that is just my opinion.


I did add the 75% to

# Use this script to execute audio setup actions
sudo amixer cset numid=3 "1" > /dev/null
# amixer set PCM 99%
amixer sset Master 75%

Now sound is working at boot time :slight_smile:


In picroft-google-aiy-voicekit.andlo/, create_skill() creates a new PicroftGoogleAiyVoicehat, but the class is PicroftGoogleAiyVoicekit so loading the skill fails - last word is ‘hat’ vs ‘kit’


For the alsamixer settings, “sudo alsactl store” appears to make the settings persistent.
