This is my second Picade. I was able to get the first edition working with little problems. However, I’m having a few big problems with the new one.
First, none of the buttons or joystick works. After connecting everything I typed in the command curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash But I couldn’t type the | symbol. Does that make a difference?
I reconnected all the buttons, joystick, but still nothing works. I have the right power supply and a working version of retropie. I double checked all the connections!

Glad to hear it was that easy.
I am using a US keyboard and to get the pipe symbol I use ALT + ~
Where the ~ key is the top right key next to ‘1’
And the ALT is the right-hand ALT key.
