PiTalk_4

Modular Smartphone on Raspberry Pi.

Steps for PiTalk software installation -

  1. Open Terminal and download the code by writing:

    git clone https://github.com/sbcshop/PiTalk_4.git
    
  2. Your code will be downloaded to '/home/pi' directory. Use 'ls' command to check the list of directories.

  3. Go to directory 'PiTalk_4' and run the command to change the permissions:

    sudo chmod +x setup
    

    and then run 'setup', but make sure Raspberry Pi is connected to Internet.

    sudo ./setup
    

    It will reboot your Raspberry Pi

  4. Go to directoy 'PiTalk_4' and you will see there are two GUI files i.e. GUI4_Landscape.py and GUI4_Portrait.py. As its name indicates it will create PiTalk GUI in Landscape and Portrait mode.

  5. Lets run the PiTalk code (Landscape or Portrait Mode). Open the terminal and write:

    For Raspberry Pi 3 or 3B+ use 'ttyS0' if PiTalk is connected through GPIO or 'ttyUSB3' if connected through USB

    sudo python3 ./GUI4_Landscape.py ttyS0
    

    For other version use 'ttyAMA0' if connected through GPIO or 'ttyUSB3' if connected throught USB or

    sudo python3 ./GUI4_Portrait.py ttyAMA0
    

    Note: Default it will take 'ttyS0' port. It means if you simply write :

    sudo python3 ./GUI4_Portrait.py
    

    or

    sudo python3 ./GUI4_Landscape.py
    

    It will also work but for Raspberry Pi 3 or 3B+ only.

  6. This will run PiTalk code on HDMI screen. If you want to run this code on 4" LCD, go to 'setting' app and go to 'Screen Orientation'. You will see diffrent orientation at different angles. Click to any angle will reboot your Raspberry Pi and start GUI on 4" LCD.

  7. Now to run the PiTalk code on 4" LCD, repeat Step 5
