Ahh, I see, you need the extension name. That did it, but it returns that there’s already a folder called that. In that case, I think I have everything installed correctly.
I’ve managed to track down the plasmactl program to a bin folder. But the command seems to be available system wide. I’ve not noticed before as I’ve been trying to execute the plasmactl AFTER I’ve run the plasma program itself. Running the actual plasma program itself seems to be the issue, in that I’m not sure it’s actually ‘finishing’? Basically, after running plasma I get the following,
2020-03-08 16:20:21.267363: Starting plasma in the foreground with framerate 30fps
2020-03-08 16:20:21.267372: Plasma input pipe: /tmp/plasma
2020-03-08 16:20:21.361884: Loaded pattern file: /etc/plasma/default.png
That’s it, the LEDs light up. But the important thing (I think) is that underscore at the bottom… That’s all I get, I don’t get returned to the pi@retropie: prompt or placed in the folder I was in?? If I keep pressing return or try say the ls command, I just get the blinking underscore??
Any idea what this could mean?
