i got my pi-top Ceed and the Speaker this week. Is installed the package and set the speaker to mono. I2C is enabled and the Ceed was rebooted. Than I wanted to play music with the omxplayer. Tried both normal and hdmi, and I tried the mplayer...
But there were nothing to hear. What can I do, to get it to work?
Thank you Rene, that fixed the problem!
I think I probably ran sudo apt-get autoremove after updating.
Now the speaker works and CEED Universe is working too!
J`ai installer les enceintes Pitop CEED et installer mais elles ne fonctionnent pas. Pas de sons sous PITOP OS meme avec la derniere version. Je trouve qu il manque beaucouq d`information, manuel ou un tuto pour l`installation. Je suis vraiment pas satisfait du manque de support technique. Cordialement
The instructions (including the latest version of pi-topOS) are at
Thanks Trevor for this very helpful information.
Sorry to revive an old thread but I came to this thread looking for a solution to the last problem rusty posted. Namely no sound and the output of pt-speaker being:
gpio: Unable to find i2cdetect command: No such file or directory
I have the latest version of wiringpi and still have the issue. I was able to workaround the issue by changing the call to "gpio i2cdetect" in the pt-speaker script to "i2cdetect -y 1" but that doesn't seem like the best course of action.
I'll also note that this only seems to occur after you update to pixel. I tested the command "gpio i2cdetect" before the update and it results in the same output as "i2cdetect -y 1" but after the update it is unable to find i2cdetect command.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
