I wanted to know if anyone has managed to find a way to view the pi top
battery status while running raspbian lite?
I've followed the instructions...when I run:
nothing is displayed it pause for a moment and goes back to the command prompt?
well i've enabled i2c and spi and also ran pt-devices
which recognises that:
Host device is pi-top v1
at one point it said
Host device is pi-topCEED
which was odd.....
but I now suddenly have a decktop? kinda
when I rebooted after type the commands and mouse appeared and now i have what I presume is a raspbian default background and a small terminal window in the top left which makes things difficult as there certainly arnt any other apps and I've accidently hidden the menu bar so i can't change the size. What on earth happend?
whats the terminal Im now in?
pt-battery does get results however
i installed Pure data to experiment with a program which uses GUI. I notices I can't change the size of the window of the that either ?
Apparently the i2c and SPI enabled should be irrelevant. Would anyone know what i've installed here to suddenly have a desktop?
Thing is its a good benefit so i would rather keep it, its just no clear whats occured?
i'm not getting a responce from pt-battery recently.
when I use pt-devices is get
Devices and peripherals handled by pt-device-manager
OS release: 4.14.62-v7+
Unknown host device
whats does this mean?
spi is definately enabled. im running i3wm on the raspberry pi 2 model B v1. i3wm is a recent download actiing as my desktop would this have made a difference?
i loaded a new image onto the sd card but now when I turn on the pi its just opens a log in screen and I enter the passward it goes dark for a second and reloads the log in screen!
