Watching movies or listening to music on your Raspberry Pi can easily overheat the Pi. Thankfully, we recently added support for LibreElec so that it’s possible to use the Argon ONE case to keep your pi cool while using LibreElec. Here’s a quick guide on how to install the Argon ONE case for LibreElec.

How to install Argon ONE Power Button and Fan Control

  • Connect LibreElec to the internet.
    • This can be done with either ethernet or WiFi
    • To check if the Ethernet or WiFi adapters are enabled, go to Settings>LibreElec>Network
  • Enable SSH. You need another computer to access the terminal of LibreElec
    • This can be done upon installation
    • To check if SSH is enabled, go to
      Settings>LibreElec> Services
  • Install Raspberry Pi Tools and System Tools
    • These can be installed by going to Addons>Install from Repository>LibreElec Addons>Program Addons
  • Connect via SSH. The default username for LibreElec is root while the default password is libreelec
    • For Windows users, the best way to use SSH is through Putty using the IP address of the Pi as the port.
    • Linux users, on the other hand, need to look for the IP address of their PC and go to the terminal to use ssh root@[ip address of device].
      • If connecting to the device for the first time, users will be asked if they want to connect to the device. Confirm by typing yes.
      • Otherwise, the password must then be typed to connect to the device.
  • Use curl https://download.argon40.com/argonone-setup-libreelec.sh | bash
  • Use reboot to reboot the Pi after installing the script

Note: The LibreElec Script installs the config files as executables. If you want to use the argonone-config and argonone-uninstall files, you need to use the ./ command to use those files (e.g. ./argonone-config)
