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?
I assume you have used user pi to install and test the speaker. If not, that's the problem.
If you have sufficient experience with Raspbian, you can try the following to check your installation:
Are the following files present:
Is the the last one (pt-speaker) executable?
Look a /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart:
Is there a line "@pt-speaker"?
(on a separate line, no empty lines etc.)
Open a terminal again and do the following:
sudo python pt-speaker-controller.py m
Does it answer
If all of this is ok, the speaker is present, set to mono and properly initialized.
Please let me know whether this helped. I would like to improve the setup procedure on github.
Please provide a set of instructions HERE to get my speaker working here. Have tired things on box
for your message. I just checked the /boot/config.txt. The line was already uncommented:
# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes
und when I tried to use omxplayer -o hdmi (what I have already done) it worked. I don't know why, but it's good that way.
