    Help please,
    My son and I are working on our first raspberry pi project, the pocket pigrrrl. We are trying to get the software set up as shown in the instructions:

    We have burned the image file to our SD card and then try to setup the network per the instructions. The way we have tried to do this is to put our SD card in the pi A+, plug in to an HDMI monitor, plug in a USB keyboard and then power up the pi. It goes through some checks, shows the retro pi splash screen and then a few more text lines and then stops with: pi@pigrrl ~ $

    We then try to type on the keyboard but it doesn’t register.

    Many questions:
    1. Is this a prompt?
    2. Should the keyboard be recognized at this point?
    3. We are trying to set up out wifi dongle as listed in the directions so we can then edit by ssh. Is this the way to do it?
    4. We have no pi experience. Is there a more detailed walkthrough for this part, most we can find are for raspbian, none for retro pi

    Any help would be appreciated.
