OK that was the problem, it was an older version. I was installing with the Thonny installer and thought I was doing it correctly. What was that script from?aivarannamaa wrote: ↑Fri Mar 12, 2021 7:30 amFrom the screenshot I see that you have older Thonny, which doesn't know about Pico.
The "MicroPython (generic)" back-end together with the port it's showing, should work, though.
If you want newer Thonny, then you can `apt remove thonny` and install a Thonny+Python bundle with following command:
Code: Select all
bash <(wget -O - https://thonny.org/installer-for-linux)
So, now that the Pico problem is solved, can you help me figure out why the Thonny UI is so tiny? This is not a Thonny issue, I have been having this issue with many other apps as well and have been asking all over the place for help with no success. The older version of Thonny did not have this issue but the one I just grabbed does. I wonder what is up?
