So I found out that torch.cuda.is_available() was returning false. Google search said I need to add environment path. As I opened a new terminal, I was getting error :
~bash: /home/jn/.bash_profile:Permission denied
I know I didn’t login as super user. So I decided to reboot. After rebooting I can’t get in anymore. The login screen looks different. I have no idea what has happened! Please find pictures attached.
Thanks for getting back AastaLLL. I was in a bit of a pickle trying to get easyOCR up and running. As I mentioned I am unable to get in GUI for some reason and I was also unable to transfer my code across to any device. Primarily because I couldn’t clone SD card. I managed to ssh using putty and initially I was getting the following error:
-bash: cd: username/: Permission denied
I couldn’t access any files from Document folder (cd /home//Document…etc). I found out this error
chown missing operand after#
chown: changing owernshio of '/home/jn/…etc. : Operation not permitted
I think I rectified this by using the following command and luckily managed to transfer data across using WinSCP
chown -R root:users dir
Apparently, PyTorch wasn’t installed and I am still unable to install it for some reason. I am going to flash microSD card and start again. I will make sure PyTorch is installed correctly this time. It doesn’t help much because I cannot enter my credentials to log in to GUI to debug it. Unfortunately, I m not an expert in terminal lol. Maybe I will try creating a virtual environment this time and see if it makes any difference. I am putting some screenshots for future reference. I really appreciate your help. Many thanks.
