Raspberry Pi install issue

Hey Chris and anyone reading this.

So, I will start with I am sure most of my issues are USER ERROR, but I am going to walk-through the problems I am having, and maybe I can learn, and we can find bugs along the way :slight_smile:

I have a little bit of experience with Raspberry Pi running an old Marlin setup.

so how hard can it be :slight_smile:

To fully qualify this install:

  • raspberry Pi 4 model b (4 or 8 gigs of ram, dont remember)
  • brand new Full install with Desktop (using the Pi Imager)
  • installed on a 64gig and 256gig SDCard.
  • I have logged in and ran a full OS PATCH.
  • the Raspberry is sitting in my office NOT CONNECTED to the longmill.

1 - downloaded and installed GSender from the link provided using Chromium
2 - using filemanager, double clicked on the .deb install file
3 - Said yes to the Installation
4 - entered the Pi user password.
5 - install finished
6- reboot the Raspberry
7 - I open a command prompt and type gsender

in the console, the following error is displayed.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ gsender

looking at the TASKLIST, I can see 7 instance of GSender running

I am going to start with reporting this as is

After 30 minutes of leaving it running I close the application and relaunched it

And the following image came up so I’m going to let it sit for another half hour and see if it actually starts

The error privously displayed is still occuring

This may be a really stupid observation and I don’t know raspberry from pineapple but your PI is running a 32bit O/S. Is gsender written for 64bit??

No idea

There is only one available as I understand

just a quick google search, because I was curious too, When you asked the question

People also ask

Is Raspberry OS 32 or 64-bit?

Raspberry Pi OS is available only in a 32-bit version. There is a 64-bit version in development, but it’s not stable yet. When the CPU is compatible, a 64-bit operating system improves the program performances.
