Re: Gertbot

Hi Gert, just to let you know, I decided to order a re[placement gertbot which arrived this week. I have just wired it up and plugged it into the pi3 and it worked first time - yay! So I think I must have somehow damaged the gertbot I was trying to get working previously. I'm very pleased - we can n...

Re: Gertbot

I followed the instructions to add the qt4 libraries - I think I'm as apt-get upgraded as I can be. I'm going to leave it for tonight - I'll try and read more tomorrow

Best wishes
Richard

Re: Gertbot

Still not working - fresh install, (I think I have) followed your instructions - the gui is OK, but no boards are found :( I do still have wifi (but not bluetooth) and you have mentioned a couple of times that this ought to be disabled, so I think we may still have different configurations.

I have just copied a fresh version of noobs to my SD card and will follow the instructions at https://www.gertbot.com/pi3.html as you suggest. But I'll have to wait until the television becomes free! Can you confirm that I should do...

Re: Gertbot

Hi Gert, thank you for responding so quickly - I'm afraid the config options you suggested have not helped in my case. I too have lost track of what I have tried - I probably haven't helped by putting an SD card that was originally set up using a pi2 into my pi3. I will start again with a completely...

Re: Gertbot

Dear Gert and any other Gertbot users, I am really struggling with my gertbot - it seems no matter what I do I always end up finding no boards when I run the gertbot gui. I *think* I have /dev/ttyAMA0 correctly configured - if I connect pins 8 and 10 with a wire I can use minicom and see things echo...
