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 https://github.com/OutOfAxis/fugo-raspberrypi/releases/download/1.0.0/fullpageos.zip

  2. Unzip the file

  3. Write the unzipped image onto the RPi flash drive (e.g using balenaEtcher)

  4. Configure your WiFi by editing fullpageos-wpa-supplicant.txt

If you get no picture via HDMI, try uncommenting the hdmi_safe=1 option in the config.txt file.

💡 Note: The first launch may take a bit longer than normal, as RPi will restart a few times before Fugo shows up on your screen.

If you want to change other options in that file (for example, common display options, hardware configuration options, boot options, etc...) please see: https://www.raspberrypi.com/documentation/computers/config_txt.html

From here, you’ll need to follow the steps for pairing your screen to Fugo CMS. You can find instructions for that here.

If you have any questions regarding setup, publishing, or hardware, you can contact our support team any time at support@fugo.ai.
