Has anyone tried setting up an older Raspberry Pi 2 version B with PGenerator? The RaspPi 2 lacks WiFi and Bluetooth so I am using a male to male USB cable to connect the Pi to my PC that has LightSpace ZRO installed on it. I cannot get Device Control to recognize the Pi and when I go into Lightspace and network manager Lightspace fails to discover it also. Shouldn't I be able to use the RaspPi 2 with PGenerator or am I missing something?

I am using a raspberry pi 2 model b rev 1.1 but I use the ethernet connection because the usb of the device is not otg (the usb connection is working instead with Raspberry Pi Zero);for wifi connection I am using on the RPI a usb dongle TP-Link TL-WN725N and for Bluetooth a Digicom 8E4520

Thanks Riccardo...I have ordered a bluetooth dongle which should solve this problem. Thanks very much for your development and continued support of this amazing tool!

I ordered the LSSEDA 4.0 Bluetooth adapter from Amazon. This one had good reviews and doesn't require a driver disk for Windows 10 setups. I will let you know how it works....

the rpi p2 has not Bluetooth interface so the dongle should be installed on RPI;have you bought the dongle for your pc or for raspberry? if your pc has a Bluetooth interface check if the menu "personal area network" is present when you click on Bluetooth icon with right mouse button

yes the LSSEDA I bought is for a custom PC I built for video editing which lacks bluetooth. I am using another bluetooth adapter with the RPi 2 that I already had and I have already confirmed it works with the RPi 2.

thanks for the explanation;I hope that the dongle LSSEDA has the possibility to add a device to Personal Area Network because the bluetooth software on RPI is configured to work as a network bluetooth device
