Please follow the instructions, you find in the attached .pdf to enable the mouse cursor in case your touch screen failed.


In software version 1.2.2 (and up) the mouse cursor is automatically displayed.


Step 1 – Connect the keyboard

to the Bolt and enter Linux

Turn on the Bolt and wait for it to complete startup. Connect the USB keyboard to the front USB connector on the Bolt. Press the Ctrl+Alt+F1 keys all at the same time. The display will turn black and put you in a Linux login:


Step 2 – Enter login credentials

On the screen you are prompted for login credentials. Please use 

‘pi’ as the login name, followed by 

as the password. You will now get a Linux prompt:

AlphenTEXASFrog



Step 3 – Enable the cursor

In the Linux prompt, type the following command exactly as shown (including the preceding dot and forward slash)

./scripts/enable_cursor


And then press enter. 

The screen will now go black and show a spinner while the interface is resetting. 

Afterwards, the Bolt user interface should show with the mouse cursor visible and enabled.
