Users / Dianemo Installation
« on: March 08, 2015, 01:44:30 am »
Completely changing my post as I've done a complete reinstall of 12.04.

I've tried the dianemo-installer 1.20 and 1.21 (on different installation attempts) and both return the same result.  Ubuntu says, "The system network services are not compatible with this version." 

ifconfig only lists my lo at 127.00.1.  lshw -class network, however lists my wireless adapters in addition to both of my wired connections.  After the 12.04 install, both NICs worked just fine- it was only (guessing) 3/4 of the way through the Dianemo install that it died.

Install log just reflects "Installation FAILED: Nerve Centre".

Any thoughts on getting this back up? 

Here's my lspci -nnk | grep -i -A2 net:

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188EE Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:8179] (rev 01)
   Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:197d]
   Kernel driver in use: rtl8188ee
05:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller [10ec:8136] (rev 07)
   Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:1982]
   Kernel driver in use: r8169

Next edit- was able to edit /etc/network/interfaces, set eth0 to dhcp, ifup eth0 to not have an ip.  Running just tells me that "package dianemo-orbiter is not configured yet".

Users / Rerip Audio CD
« on: April 04, 2014, 06:04:37 am »
Is there a way to reset the flag on a ripped cd?  I have a cd that didn't rip correctly, but when I put it back in my system (Dianemo), it says the cd is already done being ripped.

Where is that flag stored and how do I reset it?


Putting in a feature request to add "Edit" and "Disable" buttons to each line in Advanced->Firewall. 

Right now you can add the address to forward the ports, but to disable those (even temporarily) you need to delete the line.  Also, if you choose to change the address where a port is being forwarded, currently you must delete the existing and recreate the rule.  A edit option that made the cells editable and a radio button to reflect the enabled rules would be very helpful- similar to what's found on a typical residential router.

Users / QML Code Help
« on: December 28, 2011, 03:01:04 am »
Should probably jump on IRC for this, but trying this first...  spent a couple hours trying to figure out how to get this to work and now asking for help:

I have a simple pathview at the top that loads the different menu options into a (currently) ellipse shape where the icons at the front are larger and visible and get smaller and transparent as they are rotated to the back.  Still playing with different shapes and for now am just using the icons from the basic layout for convenience.  

My issue is that I would like the submenu options (e.g. "TV", "Audio", "Video", etc) buttons to appear in the middle of the screen when the appropriate menu is at the forefront of the pathview.  In other works, if the user rotates the pathview to "Media", I want the media options to be presented in the middle of the screen.

Right now the main menu items are pulled from a separate ContactMenu.qml file,  but I think my issue is at the bottom of this code in the MouseArea portion.  Clearly I don't have any code to populate a space as I was for now just trying to change the text color of the menu items to make sure I understood how the mouse area code works:

Code: [Select]
       Rectangle {
            width: scaleX(100)/3; height: scaleY(100)/4
            anchors.horizontalCenter: stage.horizontalCenter
            color: "transparent"

            Component {
                id: delegate
                Item {
                    width: 80; height: 80
                    scale: PathView.iconScale
                    opacity: PathView.iconOpacity
                    Column {
                        Image { anchors.horizontalCenter: nameText.horizontalCenter; width: 64; height: 64; source: icon }
                        Text { id: nameText; text: name; font.pointSize: 16; color: "white"}

            PathView {
                Keys.onRightPressed: if (!moving) { incrementCurrentIndex(); console.log(moving) }
                Keys.onLeftPressed: if (!moving) decrementCurrentIndex()
                anchors.fill: parent
                model: ContactModel {}
                delegate: delegate
                path: Path {
                    startX: style.orbiterW/6-25; startY: 100
                    PathAttribute { name: "iconScale"; value: 1.5 }
                    PathAttribute { name: "iconOpacity"; value: 1.0 }
                    PathQuad { x: style.orbiterW/6-25; y: 0; controlX: style.orbiterW/6-style.orbiterW/1.5; controlY: 50 }
                    PathAttribute { name: "iconScale"; value: 0.3 }
                    PathAttribute { name: "iconOpacity"; value: 0.0 }
//                    PathPercent { value: 0.50 }
                    PathQuad { x: style.orbiterW/6-25; y: 100; controlX: style.orbiterW/6+style.orbiterW/1.5; controlY: 50 }
//                    PathPercent { value: 0.50 }
                MouseArea {
                    anchors.fill: parent
                    onClicked: { delegate.nameText.color = 'red' }

Any ideas?  


Users / Dayton Amplifiers with RS232 Port
« on: October 02, 2011, 05:42:10 am »
Anyone have any experience with the Dayton amplifiers such as this one:

I don't see the RS232 codes in the owners manual...  and $700 is a steep price until you consider it's a 6 channel amplifier.

Did a wiki and forum search and don't see anything.

Users / Slim Server/Squeezebox Server Not Loading on Firefox
« on: March 19, 2011, 04:34:25 pm »
Any one able to open the squeezebox server using firefox? 

I am running snapshot 23826 from March 15, 2011 and when I go to configuration -> Squeezebox Server, all I see is the "Loading Squeezebox Server..." screen with the circle progress indicator making the appearance that the page is still loading.  I am running Firefox 3.6.15 on a Kubuntu install, but Firefox 3.6.14 on a Win 7 computer has the same effect.  Both Konqueror, Internet Explorer and Opera on my iphone open up the page just fine.  I'm not running any plugins on Firefox that would stop the page from loading...

Anyone have luck loading the page in firefox?

Users / 2Gig Z-stat
« on: December 13, 2010, 10:01:50 pm »
Seeing if still is interest in getting a Fahrenheit, z-wave t-stat working.  2Gig just came out with a backlit, touchscreen:

For $79 + shipping, I'll provide the t-stat to a developer that can get this going, but think we may need other to chip it to pay for development time...

Any of the members from this post still interested or anyone else?

Users / Internet Radio segfault
« on: October 25, 2010, 07:17:54 am »

Trying to setup internet radio- one station works great:

The other station:
Works at best 10% of the time. 

From dmesg on the MD where I am trying the radio (have tried other MD's- not the core yet) I get the fooling error immediately after the stream dies on the MD display (no audio is played) and I am dumped back to the home screen.

[89175.718498] Xine_Player[19653]: segfault at 0 ip b7acc323 sp b0baf15c error 4 in[b7a55000+158000]

It only does that with the one stream- never with the other station.  Anyone have any ideas where to start?  If you plug in that address to winamp, the station plays fine, so I think it is something locally.


Installation issues / LG LCD Template
« on: March 01, 2010, 04:50:19 am »
A number of people have contributed to building a template for a LG LCD as described here:

As listed in the wiki, there should be a template here:  /usr/pluto/pnp/

but the only template is the 20_LG_TV which points to a 1915 template, not a 1905 as listed in the wiki.

When I plug in my LG tv and pick from the available templates ("20 LS7D (RS232)") is added to the system, but when looking at the ruby code, nothing is programmed (on/off, video select, etc).

Judging from this looks to confirm that the template was never added.

Any suggestions?

Users / Current MythTV version
« on: January 26, 2010, 05:56:58 am »
As of the latest beta with updates today (Jan 25,2010) what is the current version of MythTV?

Running "mythfrontend --version" gives this:

My core has this:

MythTV Version   : 23229
MythTV Branch    : branches/release-0-22-fixes
Network Protocol : 50
Library API      : 0.22.20091023-1
QT Version       : 4.4.3

My MD has this:

MythTV Version   : 22779
MythTV Branch    : branches/release-0-22-fixes
Network Protocol : 50
Library API      : 0.22.20091023-1
QT Version       : 4.4.3

Everything is up-to-date and I cannot get the two version to match.

What is the latest version and how do I get both to match?

Installation issues / Beta 2 pulic keys
« on: December 04, 2009, 02:07:31 am »
On my Revo, it looks like- when the MD is booting- that the 195 packages are installed, but am only able to get UI1 to work.  Under the restricted drivers, I do not see that the nvidia drivers are installed.  Then, I SSHed in to run apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade and got this:

Anyone else see something similar?  I think this is a new topic- if not, I missed it in my search.

Installation issues / Updating software on: CORE
« on: October 11, 2009, 10:53:39 pm »
I installed a new MD- nothing special- no usbuirts, no MAME plugins, nothing, just a simple MD and as usual the reloads and regens had to take place and the software on the core had to be updated.  I think all of that got completed and I was prompted at some point shortly thereafter to reload the router which I clicked the "Yes, do it now" button and I was prompted with the- router is busy- see pending tasks, General Plugin Download Software on: 1.

I didn't think much of it, but now it's been close to 18 hours and it's still updating software on: CORE.  I hosed my last system by clicking the force reload now.  I am plagued with the orbiter already started error on my Core, so trying to use that is close to worthless as far as getting to KDE or even just the options in LMCE.  So, is there any way to see what's currently trying to be downloaded either from another orbiter, from the web admin or from a ssh/chroot into the core?

Feature requests & roadmap / Suspend Touchscreen Inputs
« on: September 09, 2009, 04:26:21 am »
My thermostat has this feature- a "clean me now" button that suspends all buttons until the countdown (30 seconds) is completed.  During that time you can wipe the screen clean.

I find that my WebDT gets fairly dusty- with a suspend button I could avoid powering down (or suspending the device) to clean it.  At the end of the day with the quick the WebDT resumes very quickly from a suspend, but I think I would prefer not having to do this.

Don't have the slightest idea what this would take...

Installation issues / Floor Plan Size
« on: August 12, 2009, 09:52:33 pm »
I know I've seen this before in the forums....  but several searches later an still no luck I'm just going to ask.

What dimensions (px by px or in x in) are recommended for the floor plan images?

It's not listed on the wiki here:
