Running Fldigi Flmsg and Flwrap on the Raspberry Pi 2

Booting and configuring Raspbian Jessie

Insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi. Connect the HDMI cable, monitor, Ethernet, and USB Hub. Plug into the USB Hub: USB keyboard, USB mouse, and SignaLink. Lastly, plug in the USB power supply and the USB A/MicroB cable. Connect the MicroB to the power connector on the Pi.


Most of the LEDs by the USB connectors will come on. You may see the initial color test pattern and a bunch of stuff scrolling on the monitor. It’s booting!


When it’s finished booting, it will enter the graphical user desktop.

Configure the Pi by clicking Menu.

Select Preferences.

Click Raspberry Pi Configuration.

In later versions of Raspbian this step is done on first boot.
