I recently noticed a slew of page deletions on the wiki, is there a re-arrangement happening?

Installation issues / recent 12.04 install
« on: May 12, 2015, 07:40:48 pm »
Hi All,
Are there any known issues with a 12.04 headless install?
I did an install with a fairly recent snapshot, install started ok and live cd booted.
Once I started the install the external network connection couldn't be found.
I was able to bring it up manually and the install continued but once finished I had to modify /etc/network/interfaces. Instead of auto I had to use allow-hotplug for eth0 and eth1 interfaces otherwise my network cards remained off. On power on the cards are active - link and activity leds blinking, then once lmce started to boot both went dark.
There seemed to be a rogue entry in the file, I spotted a similar one from a recent post from @brononius here its commented out.
udev rules for eth0 and eth1 were pointing to the correct cards.

Then once both interfaces are up I have no routing between them :(
Core can see external and internal, internal devices cannot see beyond core.
Anything else I can check for errors?


Developers / squeezelite as an alternative to squeezeslave
« on: July 16, 2014, 02:24:06 pm »
I wanted to swap out my squeezeslave instances with squeezelite as the former is no longer actively developed and also cannot handle Spotify streams.
Squeezelite is available on trusty but you have to build it yourself for precise.
I went digging to find out how to add it, packages+DT, "the right way" to LMCE.
From this effort I have a number of questions;

 - I found a git clone on the squeezelite site with additions to support building a deb package. Turns out Uplink did this work. How can this be used by Linuxmce?
 - To build this deb other packages are required - again not on precise, but available via another PPA, Can these be added with the package manager?
 - Can DTs be copied? or one based on another?

Has anyone any experience with one of these - either LMCE or Linux related?

Developers / ZWave - qees reto shell
« on: March 08, 2013, 03:24:26 pm »
I've added two of these to my zwave network and if they work out will be adding more.
They appear fine in lmce as dimmable light switches.
These units can also support power metering.

How do I get the meter readings back to lmce?
Do I need to update the device template? or is it better to create a new one?
There were some forum posts relating to this but I don't know if it is all in place.

If work needs doing I'll get my hands dirty.


Installation issues / Aeon labs minimote with ACT ZCU201
« on: March 07, 2013, 02:30:13 pm »
Got some free time last night so decided to start adding z-wave devices that have been gathering dust on my bench!
I recently got a minimote and some qees power dimmers for floor lamps plus some fibaro inserts for existing switches.
My zwave interface is a ACT ZCU201 - Am I starting from a bad place using this? I previously had this just triggering some lighting at sunset with no issues.

Firstly reset the interface and did a router reload - just left with the ACT device as Node 1.
Next added the minimote, issued "add node" via webadmin and "Learn" button on minimote - all good, new controller appears.
Next try to add first qees power - triple click and led blinks blue - press include on minimote - no go :(
According to the minimote manual, secondary controllers cannot include devices. Am I missing something obvious here?
I thought a Secondary controller/Inclusion controller was one and the same?

Is this down to the fact that there is no SIS support on the ZCU201?


Developers / Raspberry Pi builder

Picking up the discussion from here,12147.msg90780.html#msg90780
and Thom's suggestion,12689.msg90909.html#msg90909
What do I need to start running and breaking ;)
I'm assuming the database changes need to happen first to allow the builder scripts to operate correctly?

lets keep discussions on new player device here.

Developers / qOrbiter gets some Pi
« on: June 03, 2012, 01:34:43 am »
I've been trying to get qOrbiter ported to the Raspberry Pi.
I've made some progress and you can follow it on the wiki:
If you have comment, suggestions or advice please post.

Be aware this is prototyping so progress could be forwards as well as backwards :)

Came across this not a lot there yet but might be a nice fit with qOrbiter if/when it is released....


Users / Mount madness ...
« on: February 01, 2012, 02:00:23 pm »
I'm running 10.04 and have a NAS connected with one nfs share for lmce.
This share is set up to use lmce dir structure.
After some initial permissions issues I can access all media as desired but, I have 160!!! mount points to it.
Code: [Select] on /tmp/StorageDevices_StatusRadar.temp.mount.qExlFZFTc type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=131072,wsize=131072,namlen=255,hard,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,mountaddr=,mountvers=3,mountproto=tcp,addr=
All of the above form, the random string i.e. mount.xxxxxxxx is all that differs

what's going on?


Developers /

My 8.10 setup imploded after the pollution of the sources.list and hasty upgrade!
So I've made the move to 10.04 and am gradually getting back to where I was.

I tried running in one of the packages in the src tree and I'm getting two errors:
"_Package_template" is missing so a cp command fails.
and "" is also missing so this also fails.

I've searched under my src tree and cannot find either - what am I missing?


Developers / svn server version
« on: November 15, 2011, 12:46:58 pm »
I checked out latest 10.04 branch and downloaded 9.6Gig of data. This must give the server some hammering each time someone does a complete new checkout. I looked at reducing what to checkout, "extra" looked like a good canditate at a hefty 5.1G.
I know I could just do src but I had a look at the sparse checkout feature in >1.5 svn.
The following set of commands looked like they should work:
Code: [Select]
$ svn co linuxmce --depth immediates
$ svn up --set-depth exclude linuxmce/extra
$ svn up --set-depth infinity linuxmce/*
But the first command looked like it was taking as long as before and no traffic saving!
Turns out if the svn server doesn't know about these new features the filtering is done on the client side, so all the data is transferred and then ignored.

I know there is never a good time to update an svn server but would it be worth considering? Download traffic being the big saving.


Users / vitrum/think simple zwave range of switches
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:17:11 pm »
These look very slick - if a bit on the pricey side, and don't seem to ship outside Italy yet. Assume they will as they advertise EU and BS standards for pattress boxes.
Has anyone seen these in the real world? or had any experience with them?


Developers / Dusky Sky Controller
« on: March 31, 2011, 04:58:53 pm »
A quick search of the forums returns quite a few hits on the dusky sky controller.
There seems to be numerous starts at getting it integrated - but I don't see any templates/devices having been completed.

What is done/not done?
What is the best approach for integration?

I'd like to get this PnP and am willing to do the legwork to achieve this.
