World’o’Techno Build Notes

Note:- This is not my project, mearly my attempt at recreating it and some build notes.. Original here ( http://www.jarkman.co.uk/catalog/robots/worldotechno.htm )

Also this is a work in progress, and some steps not included, yet

  • Use at least a Raspberry Pi 2
  • Download Raspbian specifically this version as has correct Sonic Pi Version
    • https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/raspbian-2015-09-28/
  • Raspberry Pi Configuration
    • Change Password
    • sudo reboot
    • ssh into pi (I use Putty on Windows)
    • sudo raspi-config
      • Option 8 / A8 Serial / Would you like a login shell to be accessible over serial? Choose No
    • sudo apt-get update
      • at this stage I don’t sudo apt-get upgrade, as need the older version of Sonic Pi
    • Following guide from ( https://github.com/jarkman/world-o-techno/blob/master/README.md ) I do the following:-
      • sudo apt-get install gpsd gpsd-clients python-gps
        • sudo gpsd /dev/ttyAMA0 -F /var/run/gpsd.sock or
        • sudo gpsd /dev/ttyUSB0 -F /var/run/gpsd.sock
      • sudo reboot
    • mkdir world-o-techno
    • cd world-o-techno
    • gem install sonic-pi-cli

There are a few other things I’ve probably done not included, but there are my notes, not a full on install guide.
