use ssh to remotely access the console (terminal) of the Zynthian.

SSH/SFTP access:

login: root
password: raspberry

User pi doesn't exist any more and ... it's a good idea to change the password :wink:

Base Directory:

/zynthian

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

/zynthian/zynthian-ui/zynthian_gui_config.py

This file contains some configuration parameters for the Zynthian User Interface:

  • Logging level
  • Wiring layout
  • Font & Color scheme
  • etc.

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.)
