Scratch 2.0 beginner

Sat Aug 19, 2017 2:52 pm

Hi, sorry to ask this and I hope I'm in the right forum. I'm new to Raspberry pi, I have a model B+. I've installed Rasbian, updated, upgraded, and dist-upgrade.

However when I go to start scratch 2.0 it won't load. I've searched forums and tried everything. I know it needs flash, but I was told that upgrading would get me flash. It hasn't I've done all of that twice and I'm sure I have the latest upgrades and updates.

Will scratch 2.0 work on a model B? or is it for later versions of the raspberry pi.

Again sorry to ask this

checked on a pi3 and a piB with same sd-card. Both local scratch2 and web scratch2 run on a pi3, but not on a piB.
Looked to the announcement from the foundation, there is another user who reports problems with pi2.
Most probably the code is only running on the pi3 arm processor.

See related topic:
It looks like the hardware is important.

Scratch 2.0, at the moment, does not support ARMv6 processors, which may lead to the problem you are experiencing. In a terminal, type "scratch2". Does it say "Segmentation Fault"? If so, your hardware is incompatible, and you will not be able to run the official Scratch 2.0 editor. However, there is a project I've been working on called Whiskers that aims to allow it to run on older raspberry pi versions without flash. In a terminal, just paste the following command:

Code: Select all

curl -sLS https://github.com/NoMod-Programming/Whiskers/raw/master/raspi-install.sh | sudo bash
An icon will appear called "Whiskers" on your desktop. You can then run that to use Scratch 2.0 features, and save/open scratch 2.0 files. The Scratch forums topic for this is located here: https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/168060/

Return to “Scratch”
