The bite-sized Raspberry Pi is often recognized as a cheap entry point into do-it-yourself digital signage thanks to its low price. For the unfamiliar, Raspberry Pi’s are mini-computers that plug into digital displays and allow you to stream content, among other things.
It’s also beloved for its community of active users that put out loads of tutorials and discussions that help tinkerers and DIY hardware aficionados learn the ropes of digital signage.
In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to use Fugo with your Raspberry PI for digital signage.
Let’s get started!
1.Download the zipped image from http://unofficialpi.org/Distros/FullPageOS/
2. Unzip the file
3. Write the unzipped image onto the RPi flash drive
4. Using any plain text editor, make the following changes to the files on your flash drive:
- In '/boot/config.txt' – comment out the last line so it should be #dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d'
- In '/boot/fullpageos.txt' – replace the default page with https://player.fugo.ai/
- In 'scripts/start_chromium_browser' - Find the comment that says 'Remove the two lines above to enable signage mode - refresh the browser whenever errors are seen in log', and place the following under it: 'unclutter -idle 0'
5. Start your RPi and log in to it in the terminal: 'ssh firstname.lastname@example.org'; the password is 'raspberry'
6. 'sudo apt update'
7. 'sudo apt install unclutter'
From here, you’ll need to follow the steps for pairing your screen to Fugo CMS. You can find instructions for that here.
