Error Pisound Hotspot Settings and wont start hotspot


I thought Ive installed Pisound sucessfully, but I cant seem to start the Hotspot by triple-clicking,
and when I try to access the Hotspot settings of Pi, this text/error comes back.
Any idea what I should do? Should I try to re-install Pi, and how would that be best?
See last line is an error, couldnt find the file or directory!

Hey, thank you for reporting the issue, hostapd.conf got moved to a new location, I’ll update the config tool tomorrow and get it fixed. :slight_smile:

What is the Raspberry Pi version you are using?



So it says 9.8 Version!
Pi Model 3B V1.2

you need more info? Thanks!



I also have heavy clicking and glitching sound problems, I can send a test tone from Pure Data and hear it but there is a constant click and glitch sound from the audio cable. Any idea how I can verify it works? thanks!
EDIT: realized it was the adapter power now fine, anyway, I would be happy if the hotspot works soon :smiley: thanks



Ok, the config is fixed, to get the fix, run sudo pisound-config, pick ‘Update Pisound’ option, after that, the hotspot config menu should work.

Try restarting the WiFi hotspot after updating and let us know if it works. If not, please provide the output of:

sudo systemctl status wifi-hotspot
