For the initial setup, please follow the steps under the DIY section of LiV Pi website.
LiV Pi image uses a Raspbian (Debian Linux) image and boots in desktop mode.
The bare minimum knowledge needed to setup LiV is knowing how to navigate the file system using UNIX shell commands typed in the terminal AND how to edit files. If you are just getting started with Linux, we strongly suggest you should learn how to use "nano" text editor. You do not need any Python knowledge to setup your LiV device.
What you need to know: - shell commands (pwd, cd, ls, cp, mv, sudo, chmod)
- edit files (nano, vi, emacs)
- basic understanding of file system and file permissions
