log in not starting raspberry pi with prynth?

Wed Apr 17, 2019 8:31 pm

I am currently using prynth image. documentation here: https://prynth.github.io/doc/

A start up window beings when i turn the pi on, but asks for my username and pw. however, when i do put these in correctly it then just displays:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $

what command do i do so i can get onto the desktop GUI? I have a laptop and monitor connected to the pi. i am a complete beginner with pi but want to use prynth for sound stuff.

Two ways you can sort your issue:

Try startx as the command to get a GUI

Also you can run

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
and then select boot options and set GUI start up.

Note this assumes you have a version of Raspbian and it’s not the Lite version (that does not have the GUI by default).

See the documentation you have cited, under the heading Starting Prynth for the First Time

It seems the expectation is that you will access the Prynth system via a web browser, not directly via a desktop.

When the Pi is set to boot into the command line, one can use the command:

startx

to start the provided desktop.

The command line command:

man startx

will provide more information about this command.
