Knock Knock

Knock on one Knock Knock box and the other box knocks too (try saying that three times fast). It’s like they’re a single object that somehow appears in two places at the same time. Magic!

LInux support for ESP32 setup

You have Mac and Windows instructions, but no Linux instructions.

How do I update the ESP32 firmware from Linux?

When I purchased this, there was no mention that I had to use a closed, proprietary operating system to make this.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

For an installation on Debian Bookworm following steps were successful

- apt install python3.10 python3-wxgtk4.0 git

- mkdir ~/knock-knock

- cd ~/knock-knock

- python3.10 -m venv --system-site-packages venv

- . venv/bin/activate

- python3.10 -m pip install esptool==2.8

- git clone

- cd esptool-python-gui/

- python3.10



- root permissions are required to run apt

- run all other commands as normal user

- for the sake of clarity the above is a bit more verbose as actually needed
