ArduSub raspberry pi image issue

(Charles A) #1

So I am making an underwater robot, this includes:
Raspberry Pi
Arduino Mega

Both the Mega and Pixhawk will be connected to the pi via usb, and when putting the pixhawk to the pi everything works fine I have no issue the pixhawk and pi connect perfectly to the topside computer. Controllers and camera is working perfectly. But I am not sure if the image I flashed to my pi has a GUI, when I use the raspberry pi I have to use the terminal to complete commands or see my data which is fine for me but I want a GUI for anyone who is not so familiar with using just a terminal.

Basically is it possible for me to flash the ardusub image again onto the pi and get a graphical interface like when using rasbian. If also possible I would like to flash with rasbian then install ardusub separately. This would be beneficial for me because I would also like to use OpenCV on my ardusub pi image but I cannot because when powering the pi, it will not go to the desktop (if it even has one), I did even went into sudo raspi-config to see if there is a splash screen but there is not, I even set the boot option to desktop but it goes straight to a terminal like visual.

My question is does the ardusub have a image with a GUI, and if there is, what is the command to go into it. if not, then is there a way to install ardusub while I have rasbian?
