Install GoPiGo on my own image?

gopigo

#1

Where do I find instructions to install the GoPiGo Python on my own image. Note that I am NOT looking for GoPiGo3 instructions (which is the only thing I can find). Also, I am not looking to use a Dexter image. I have an OS image already built that I need GoPiGo added.

I have GoPiGo versions 14.0, 14.5, and 16.9 (total of 10 boards)

Thanks

Hi @wmatchett,

Reading the following README should give you all the required insight.

Thanks you!


#3

Thanks! After running this install the gopigo system was not installed, just the python library. I guess my question wasn’t specific enough. I have Raspian Jesse without any Dexter software installed. I need to install GoPiGo libraries with Python. I only need to run Python, but additional languages are no problem.


#4

Hi @wmatchett,

What do you mean by “gopigo system” ? The install scripts installs you everything that you need and that’s only the gopigo library. What are those other things that you don’t want to have installed? I need more details.

Thank you!


#5

There is nothing I don’t want installed. I just want to ensure that python is available. On my previous images from Dexter there are two folders in /home/pi: lib and GoPiGo. When I ran the install commands above all that was install was lib. I guess I need to know how to get the GoPiGo folder installed?


#6

Hi @wmatchett,

If you use this command

curl -kL dexterindustries.com/update_gopigo | sudo bash

You’ll end up with 2 main directories in the home directory of the pi user: lib and Dexter folders. The GoPiGo repository will be found in Dexter directory once installed.

After you have ran the above command, can you tell us if you end up with that hierarchy of the pi user? You can show us the output of ls.

Thank you!

Hi @wmatchett,

When there are so many errors, most likely there’s something small that’s being missed out (like something obvious).

Also, please tell us if you somehow ran curl -kL [dexterindustries.com/update_gopigo](http://dexterindustries.com/update_gopigo) | sudo bash, because that’s what I can see in your message.
It’s not supposed to be that way, but this way:

curl -kL http://dexterindustries.com/update_gopigo | sudo bash

Waiting for a reply from you.

Thank you!

Sorry about that. You are seeing the converted text after gmail converted the pasted text because the it contained a url. Gmail it converted it into a clickable link. Below is the same text that I forced gmail not to convert. It appears to me that in line 7 of the output the script is trying to run ‘git’ and it fails. I don’t think git is installed by default on the jessie image. I will install it and re-run.

#10

Ok, having git install improved things a lot - things are running fine. This solved it.

Thanks for your help.


#11

@wmatchett,
I’m glad that you were able to figure it out! Are you using full Jessie or Jessie light?
Git is installed on full Jessie, but it’s possible the Raspberry Pi Foundation took out of Jessie Light since last time we checked.

Cleo.


#12

Yes, it is Jessie Light. I forgot that version was chosen.


#13

Hi @wmatchett,

The GoPiGo is going through a series of small changes that will fix whatever issue you have (in this case, it didn’t know how to throw an error on git not being installed).

Which by the way, did installing git fix your issue altogether?

Thank you!


#14

Yes, after installing git and rerunning the GoPiGo install command everything is working.

Thanks again for all the help. We use these in a programming class and the students log into the pi by authenticating to an Active Directory server. This defined the baseline OS image required. I had attempted several different methods to add the authentication to the Dexter image but could not get it to work. Dropping back and using the Jessie image, which I already had working with AD, was my last resort. I am very relieved that it worked.


#15

Hi @wmatchett,

I’m glad you have it up and running.

Just to give you a quick insight, we’re developing the support for Stretch for all of our suite of products for Raspbian for Robots and the very near future we are going to release it. At some point we’re going to make an announcement.

Thank you!
