Creating a Custom Raspbian Image containing SUSI.AI Linux Libraries

Creating a Custom Raspbian Image containing SUSI.AI Linux Libraries

Installing Raspbian and SUSI Linux on your Raspberry Pi can be a long process and if your raspberry Pi crashes due to some bug, you have to repeat the process again and again.

It wastes a lot of valuable time. So, we will discuss a method in which we will have to install the SUSI Linux repo only once and can use it again in case of any issues.

First, we’ll go through the requirements for f installing SUSI Linux on our hardware

Hardware Requirements

1> Raspberry Pi

2> Micro SD card (16GB or greater)

3> USB Mic

4> USB Mouse and USB Keyboard

5> HDMI Monitor

6> ReSpeaker Pi Hat 2 Mic Array(optional)

7> 3.5 mm Jack Headphones / Speaker

 

Step 1: Preparing SD for Installation

1> To format your SD card

  • You can use softwares like SDCardformater to do so.

2> To install Raspbian

  • Download raspbian official build from here
  • Now mount the Image using software like Etcher or win32diskimager

 

Step 2: Installing SUSI Linux on your Pi

1> Navigate to the folder `/home/pi` and make a folder called SUSI.AI

 

cd /home/pi
mkdir SUSI.AI
cd SUSI.AI

 

2> Clone the SUSI Linux repo from here and navigate in the repo

 

git clone http://github.com/fossasia/susi_linux

cd susi_linux/

 

3> Run the installation script by using the command `./install.sh`

 

./install.sh

 

4> Run the configuration script by using the following command

`python3 config_generator.py <stt> <tts> <hotword> <wake>`

 

5> Run SUSI linux with the following command

`python3 -m main`

‘log’

If it plays a bell after you say ‘SUSI’ , it means that your software has been successfully installed

Step 3: Creating the image

1> Now that you have successfully installed SUSI Linux on your raspberry Pi , we will make a backup of the current stage of the system and use it for future references

 

2>Turn off the raspberry Pi , and remove the SD card from the Pi and insert it in your system.

 

3> To create the custom Image , use something like win32 imager and follow the steps below

  • In the text box , create a custom where you want your image to exist
  • Click on read button
  • And voila
