Install a Keg Punk Update on Raspberry Pi

Here's hoping we won't have to send out any bug fixes, but we will be sending out updates as we improve Keg Punk. Unfortunately, our tiny brains can't find an easy way to update Keg Punk on your Raspberry Pi...so here's a not too terrible process you can follow to install updates when we send them out.



EXTRACT

  • If you downloaded a Keg Punk update straight to your Pi, skip to step 2.

  • If you downloaded a Keg Punk update on another computer and will transfer to your Pi on a flash drive, start at step 1.

STEP 1

Load the downloaded zip folder to a flash drive. After inserting the flash drive to your Pi, click “OK” to Open in File Manager.



STEP 2

Right click on the “Update.zip” folder and select “Extract To…”.



STEP 3

Extract to:

/home/pi/Arithmech/KegPunk

then click “Extract”



STEP 4

Navigate to the “KegPunk” folder (i.e., /home/pi/Arithmech/KegPunk). You should see the extracted “Update” folder.

REPLACE OLD FILES

NOTE: You will not lose any data. This process only replaces the code files, not your data files.


STEP 5

Open the “Update” folder and Cut all files inside.



STEP 6

Back out of the “Update” folder and paste the files in the “KegPunk” folder.



STEP 7

You will be asked what to do with duplicate files. Check “Apply this option to all existing files” and then click “Overwrite”.

MAKE KEG PUNK EXECUTABLE

NOTE: Making the script executable allows you to launch Keg Punk from the Desktop short cut.


STEP 8

Open a terminal and enter the following to access the KegPunk directory:


cd /home/pi/Arithmech/KegPunk

(Note: there is a space between “cd” and “/home/…”)


STEP 9

Enter the following to make Keg Punk executable, then close the terminal:


chmod +x Main.py

LAUNCH!


STEP 10

Double click the Keg Punk shortcut on the Desktop to run the updated program!
