Access UI without board attached.

Hi All,

I have recently downloaded the bartendro raspbian image so that I can get a good look at the UI while I'm waiting for the hardware to turn up. When I connect I notice that it errors out saying that the board is not connected.

Just wondering if I can get around this in the interim.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Pierre,

I tried running "export BARTENDRO_SOFTWARE_ONLY=1" as recommended but no change. Does it matter that I am running the downloaded image rather than a manual install?


No that shouldn't matter. Make sure to restart the server.

Hi Michael,

Take a look here:

There should be a software only mode that doesn't require hardware.
