How to get GPIO running using the new UP Squared Pro?

datachaos New Member Posts: 3


I followed the instructions from here but without any success to get the GPIO running with mraa under Ubuntu 18.04.5 (server) including the upboard-extras.

Here some system outputs:

uname -a:
Linux lidarbox 5.4.0-1-generic #0~upboard2-Ubuntu SMP Sun Oct 25 14:06:23 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

dmesg|grep pinctrl:
[ 0.306554] pinctrl core: initialized pinctrl subsystem

mraa-gpio list:
Version v2.0.0 on Unknown platform

mraa-gpio list
No Pins

I've also tried to run mraa as sudo with no success.

    Hello @datachaos

    We are working on updating MRAA packages with the configurations required for the new platforms (and also submitting the changes to the upstream MRAA).

    We will update here in the community once the PPA will be released later this summer.

    Is there any update on this? I need to control the GPIO, preferably through a c/c++ program
