Problems with Strom Pi v3 console

I’m having problems with the Strom Pi v3 console. After having installed minicom and starting it with „sudo minicom –D /dev/serial0 –b 38400“ command, it seems it doesn’t register my keystrokes. I mean literally, as I read that part on manual that they wouldn’t show on the console window, but as I type „startstrompiconsole“ + enter, nothing happens. I also tried that abbreviation and even copypasting „startstrompiconsole“ into the terminal just to make sure. I don’t think I can get past this phase or troubleshoot this on my own. What should I do?

I should probably also mention, I’m using Raspberry Pi 3 B with this and have lastest Raspbian on it, if it helps.

I thought I had that disabled but apparently it was not. Disabled and rebooted, now the console seems to work as it should. Thank you! 🙂

Are you shure you disabled the serial console access?
From the text-fragments it looks like getty is interfering with your serial communication …

Guess we are kind of stuck here. I can type help, but it doesn’t recognize the command. I reinstalled minicom and double-checked those files which should be edited. Nothing changed.

Hi Northlander,

But there is a good message. The communication between your Raspberry Pi and your StromPi 3 seems already to work. If you have a look at the message with 1. on top of the box. This is a message from the StromPi console. If you see this message and type „help“ – depending on your StromPi firmware version – something like this should show up:

I hope I’ve been able to help you.

Damn it, sorry for the spam. I got an update on my issue, in form of this picture:

I added some translations from my OS language. As the last resort I tried reinstalling minicom one more time, but nothing changed.
