Re: STICKY: Help with Spectrum Issue 67 Start Page 24

Sat Mar 31, 2018 5:47 pm

The Spectrum keyboard is not being picked up by the RetroPie V4.3 and of course does not work with FUSE. I have used the test program to test the Spectrum Keyboard and works as per expectation. I have followed all the steps published in the article and even been on line to MagPi.cc/2EbikTS which provides a different listing to use. It appears that some parts of the article have disappeared from the printed version. So any help would be appreciated if of practical use. What might really help would be to hear from someone who has managed to get this working from the original article. Many thanks

I have finally managed to resolve this issue myself. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Quite simple really, just never spotted the error in the listing. :evil: :evil:
Of course this could just apply to my system, I don't know.
My solution to missing Spectrum Keyboard on boot Is as follows:

Original Code reads:
/usr/bin/python /home/pi/zxscanner.py

On my system zxscanner.py is in a further directory zxscanner, so never gets executed using the original code provided.
I moved zxscanner.py to the correct directory and problem resolved. Of course I assume you could just have done this:

/usr/bin/python /home/pi/zxscanner/zxscanner.py
I have not tested that out.

A massive thank you and appreciation must go to PJEvans the original author for all his help and assistance in trying to resolve my problem.

Re: STICKY: Help & Support - Issue 69, Touchscreen & Data system

Must confess I'm new to all this (but not in age!) so please excuse any obvious blunders / questions etc - more of an Arduino user after a bit more flexibility.

I'm trying the MagPi tutorial by Peter Juett on page 46 of issue 69 (May 2018), much to my amazement I've installed all the various programmes (mosquitto, sqlite3, apache2, PHP etc) up as far as the part at the bottom of page 47 -
"Install the source code modules from GitHub repo (the Python modules, required libraries. webpages, and subfolders). You can find more details in the README.md file on GitHub."
With no links provide what should I be looking for on GitHub to find this README.md file - a link would be appreciated.

I think maybe it is the site referenced by an obscured MagPi.cc url towards to top of that column of text, which is also duplicated in the Download box on the right of the page?

(Apologies if I am wrong, but the paid staff of the MagPi magazine might not be back until Tuesday... )
