    Correct. In general, only the graphics files are copied to the uSD card. You need a programming module to program the display module. When the program runs on the display module, it accesses the graphics files in the uSD card.

      finally it works! genieBasic and also the kitchenPi .
      But I wish to start at bootup
      I used .config/autostart
      nano kitchenPi.desktop

      [Desktop Entry]
      Type=Application
      Name=kitchenPi
      Exec=kitchenPi
      StartupNotify=false

      it does not start after bootup

        I think you will have to try the Pi forums for that part.

        Does the app actually start, but not the display?

        If so, maybe a delay is needed?

          Hello,

          I have the same issue, could you please post how you solved this ?

          In VisiGenie i used under "Projects" the version " uSD" so when i complie the progrem it just compiles and copies the program to micro sd in one go. Is this OK or do I always need to use the programming cable ?

          Also can I use 512MB micro sd or does it have to be 2GB or 4 GB ?

          Can I use a 16 GB micro SD ?

          Thanks

            I can't answer your first question.

            2. To compile and load using workshop requires the programming cable. To run, on any particular host, does not.

            3. Any sized FAT16 (or FAT) formatted card will work

            4. A 16GB card will need to be partitioned so that the first partition is a maximum of 4GB and that partition needs to be formatted as FAT16 (or FAT). See App note P1001 http://www.4dsystems.com.au/appnotes/

                  Surely you can find someone a bit closer? http://www.4dsystems.com.au/distributors

                  You need the cable to program the display or load PmmCs.

                  We don't recommend using 'someone elses' USB to serial converter as you can brick your display. But if you must you will need a converter that outputs DTR so that you can manipulate the reset line.
