SSH into Mark1 as mycroft

I’m installing skills and they seem to assume that I am logged in as user:mycroft. However, when using ssh I’m logged in as pi and so some things aren’t working.

Why should I be logged in as in order to install skills etc?

If that is user:mycroft, what is the default password please?


the mycroft user doesn’t have a set password and shouldn’t be logged into directly.

Installing using msm should do a chown to set the ownership to mycroft for the installed skill. If it doesn’t there’s a bug.

If you need to run commands as the mycroft user I suggest you log in as pi and then do sudo su mycroft to switch to the mycroft user.

Out of curiosity what skill is giving you trouble and is it when doing msm install some step fails?

Best regards
