Use ssh to remotely access the console (terminal) of the Zynthian from another computer. Use the ssh command in Mac Terminal or use the freely downloadable PuTTY software for Windows. You need to know the IP address of the Zynthian on your local network to use ssh. See Finding your IP address for help on this.
login: root password: raspberry
User pi doesn't exist any more and ... it's a good idea to change the password :wink:
Almost all the zynthian stuff like synth engines, audio plugins, soundfonts, zynthian user interface, setup scripts and other specific software is in this directory.
UI configuration file
This file contains some configuration parameters for the Zynthian User Interface:
- Logging level
- Wiring layout
- Font & Color scheme
Stopping/Starting the Zynthian UI
You must use systemd-style commands to stop & start any system service, that includes the zynthian UI:
systemctl stop zynthian systemctl start zynthian
If you want to run the Zynthian UI in the console, you must stop the zynthian service and run the zynthian UI as a normal script using these commands:
systemctl stop zynthian /zynthian/zynthian-sys/sbin/zynthian.sh
Running zynthian from the console (terminal) allows you to view the logging/debug messages, which is necessary for debugging (posting these to the forum will enable experts to help you.)
Viewing the Zynthian graphics display on a computer
If you are using Linux on your PC (or MacOSX with a X window server installed), you can login into your Zynthian box with ssh using the “-Y” flag:
ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org
this will allow you to run graphic applications in your Zynthian, while displaying the graphics window on your PC/laptop.
You can use commands to see what's going on with MIDI I/O Debugging MIDI
