Hello Picade community,
I have just received my new Picade (rasp 4, 10")
and successfully assembled it following the instructions from the YT film
My sequence of actions:
- My screen comes on
- Pushing “A” or spacebar, as shown in the video does nothing
- I can not get to this screen https://i.imgur.com/Xs2jl3g.jpg
I can select “configure” and see the keyboard configuring questions.
So I have configured most of the relevant keys on a wireless Rii mini x1 keyboard. (Using a microsoft wireless keyboard & mouse combo didn’t work at all for some reason)
Clicking OK doesn’t work. At least: I get no response on screen. I see or hear no signal telling me it has successfully saved. I expect to be moved to the next screen, per the video. Alas, nothing.
The key I configured to “select” was the “returnkey”
The only option out of this screen is F4, which takes me to the cmd line.
(I have tried re-doing the install with Balena etcher and starting from scratch. I had to change the config file and uncomment “hdmi_force_hotplug=1” but that is only for the screen.)
On the cmd line I get a message “wifi is currently blocked by rfkill”
I added a wifikeyfile.txt with my wifi credentials, but that hasn’t changed the rfkill message
Looking online: this forum, retropie.co.uk, has me spinning with all the new technology words & concepts.
Any help is most appreciated,
