Download as RaspberryPi 3 Image

Better use te Bechele3 Version (Software Version 2.0)

Easiest is to download the software as a ready made Rasperry Pi Archlinux SD-card image. Here all required programs are already installed and as a sample you find the dialog “OldMacDonald” as a Sequence in folder /home/bechele2.

Using this link you may download the compressed image (recommended):

(The image should be written to a SD card with 8GB or more)

Before the installation you need to unpack the GNU Zip image.

For the installation using Windows, I recommend Win32DiskImager that may be downloaded from here for free:

On Linux it works with dd:

dd bs=256k if=<SD-card image> of=<SD card device on which you want to write>

Then plug the card into the Raspberry Pi, connect the peripherials and login via network as root. 

Das Passwort for root ist: raspi 

If you use windows as a terminal host I recommend PUTTY as a terminal program: 

To allow logging in, a DHCP server needs to be installed in the network. Then figure out the IP address of your Raspi 3 and you can login via ssh. If you don’t have a DHCP you have further possibilities:

1. possibility: With a net sniffer (for example wire shark) watch net traffic to figure out the ipV6 address of the Raspi 3. Then connect to this address using ssh (on Windows Putty) (works on my Win 10 PC that way)

2. possibility:  Configure a DHCP Server. Windows offers this via “shared use of the internet connection”

3. possibility: Connect keyboard and Screen to the Raspi 3.

By the way, the serial port on the Raspi is not available, since it is used for the connection to the joy stick. So trying to login this way will not work.

After a successful login:

Read README in folder /usr/local/bin. All programs for the use of the project are located there either.

Have fun !

    Sorry to bother you again Rolf, i have encountered a problem where Win32Disk is saying “Image fail cannot be located on target device.”, it will not let me install the image file to the FAT32 32GB SD Card. Looked every where for a fix, but nothing.

      Hard to tell whats wrong in detail. For your understanding: It is un-important how the SD card is formatted, because a Disk imager just writes the raw device and copies everything including formatting. So you read from a file (somewhere on your hard disk i.e. the image file) and write this data to the SD card.
      In case you cant get ahead, let me know.

        Hi, made a mistake in the comment, the error message said “Image file cannot be located on target device.”. After reading error message over and over again, realised what it meant – had the Image file extracted on to the SD card – which is what a tutorial told me to do. So got it off SD card and extracted it on my computer then installed the Image file onto SD card, now SD card is in raspi and ready to go. Will let you know how it goes when i set it up! Thank you again, Rolf!
