Stuck at Timezone Selection?



  • I have an ethernet cable plus USB keyboard and mouse connected to the RPi 3B+ with the RPi 7" touchscreen. On first boot I select language and keyboard, but then at the screen where I need to enter timezone nothing seems to be recognized, and the "next" is disabled.

    I have tried:

    • Chicago
    • chicago
    • America/Chicago
    • United_States/Chicago

    I see the normal yellow and green lights from the ethernet port, but there doesn't seem to be any activity. Is there a trick to getting around this dialog screen?

    Thanks for any help!



  • With some help from the RPi Telegram group (https://t.me/UBports_pi) between clicks and keyboard tab and enter I was able to get the "Next" button to be activated and am now past this timezone dialog.

    There were also issues with the touchscreen edge swipes not beind detected that I posted to the "Support" category as they may be broader than the RPi.
