Hello, I wrote this text in German and translated it by computer program. Please excuse any mistakes in the text!
I use a Raspberry Pi3 in combination with the operating system OSMC as media player. In order to switch off the device via the remote control, I bought a Power Button for RPi SKU: EP-0077. I thought I just needed to plug the board in and it would work. Unfortunately, the configuration is much more difficult than expected (I am a pure Windows user).
I therefore wanted to carry out the step-by-step instructions on the S2PI-Manual.
First I added the specified three lines to the config. txt file on the SD card.
Next, I wanted to use Putty to do step 3 of the manual. When entering the command ‘git clone GitHub - yoyojacky/powerbutton: This is a remote power controller for Raspberry Pi 3 mode B.’ I received the following error message: ‘-bash: git: command not found’. I didn’t know what to do from then on.
Point 4 of the tutorial would work with Putty again, but what does’ update the “&” mark at the end of command’ mean?
Unfortunately, the Pi3 no longer responds to any remote control commands. Which remote control do I have to select in the OSMC configuration for the Raspberry to work with the powerboard?
I would be happy if anyone could help me, because I would like to upgrade my three Raspberrys with the board.
Thanks for the information. I tried your order. The attempt ended with the following message:

Yes, I have tried to run sudo apt-get update and the various commands of the instruction manual are executed again, but the board does not respond to the local button or the remote control. For the time being, I have reset everything to my saved OESMC original version.
