picoscope 6, Raspberry pi 4, for signal generator.

Post by JRH »

I have installed picolog6 on a 32-bit raspbian Bullseye OS. I have a Picoscope 2204a.

picolog6 opens and starts, but as soon as it connects to the picoscope (I hear hear the relay switch click in the picoscope) the window goes blank and the window title changes from "picolog-capture-devices" to "desktop-entry.html". this is less important than SDK as from what I understand, Picolog7 does not work on raspberry pi, I wont be able to use signal generator through Picolog6, and will need SDK. But I thought it was worth mentioning.

I followed the instructions on: viewtopic.php?t=42586

I opened the example for Picoscope 2000 signal generator in thonny, and I get the following messages (attached screenshot and text below). Can you help with this ?
