I use picroft and ran into several issues with the skills functionality. I’ll just talk about the ‘Audio Recorder’ skill for now. Whenever I wake up Mycroft and tell him to ‘start recording’ he agrees to it and it seems to work on the surface. But in reality Mycroft doesn’t record anything and if you look into the mycroft-core interface using ssh it gives following message:
arecord: main:788: audio open error: No such file or directory
Checking [‘put the garbage out’, ‘20182312-160000–0600’]
‘Put the garbage out’ is actually linked to the other ‘Set Reminders’ skill that I tried to test and which also didn’t work. For some reason it saved the text of the reminder and now it appears when I try to test other skills.
I am very new to Python and UNIX in general, so I am not sure how much more I can say about this. Hope you can help out.
