What Image are you running ??

 

You need to go to Steve Sakoman’s site and get his uSD card script.

If you want KBD, mouse and HDMI support you will need the desktop image.

The console image uses the “Console “ USB connector on the Tobi.

 

You need a uSD card to use the “Desktop” image. The “Fire should have come pre-loaded with a console image …

 

Good luck !

Subject: [Gumstix-users] mouse and keyboard not working...

 

Hey,

      I am new to gumstix. I am not able to get the mouse and keyboard working. Can somebody please help me sort this out?

 

THE SETUP

# gumstix overo fire + tobi.

# NO card for loading os.

# Ordinary hub.

# usb mini -> usb female cable [ The usb mini cable was modified to ground the ID pin. The +5V supply from usb mini was cut out. Instead an external 5V               

                                               supply was given]

 

WHAT I TRIED

# plugged in HDMI, power, usb mini(OTG). The display comes up, but neither mouse nor the keyboard responds.

# interchanged the D+ and D- cable, just in case, still no response.

 

WHAT I DID WRONG

(I guess this is for you to fill)

 

 

Thanks,

Prasanna Shevare
