Rock On! You've got yourself a copy of Keg Punk and are ready to install it on your Raspberry Pi. The software is packaged in a zip folder, so you'll start out by extracting it. Follow the steps below or jump to a specific section.
IS YOUR PI READY?
As far as we know, all new versions of Raspberry Pi are running Raspberry Pi OS and
Python 3...but just in case...
We recommend upgrading to Raspberry Pi OS if you have an older OS.
Keg Punk runs on Python 3 - check your Pi's current version by entering the following into a terminal:

Upgrade to Python 3 if needed.
If you downloaded Keg Punk straight to your Pi, skip to step 2.
If you downloaded Keg Punk on another computer and will transfer to your Pi on a flash drive, start at 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.
Right click on the “Arithmech.zip” folder and select “Extract To…”.
then click “Extract”
Navigate to the “Home Folder” (i.e., /home/pi). You should see the extracted “Arithmech” folder.
NOTE: There is a file in the folder called “Keg Punk” with a keg icon. This is a launcher script file that will be used as the desktop shortcut.
In the Arithmech folder, cut the “Keg Punk” launcher file.
Paste the file in the Desktop folder (i.e., /home/pi/Desktop). It should also show up on the Desktop.

Go to Main Menu -> Accessories -> File Manager -> Edit -> Preferences -> General

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