The Mycroft-GUI package requires some newer packages, so a newer distribution such as KDE Neon or K/Ubuntu 20.04 is recommended.
On supported systems, the installation is equivalent to a development installation of mycroft-core:
git clone https://github.com/mycroftAI/mycroft-guicd mycroft-gui./dev_setup.sh
Running the Mycroft GUI is as simple as launching:
If mycroft-core is not already running, all Mycroft services will be started.
By default the GUI window includes a text entry box to send utterances to Mycroft.
In the bottom-left corner of the window is a hamburger-style menu. Here you can find hints for using Mycroft, settings for the mycroft-gui application, and licensing information.
In order to emulate the display of a Mycroft Mark II, or any other device, you can set the dimensions of the screen and hide the text input bar when launching the application.
