Installation issues / apt-get issues
« on: January 19, 2016, 07:44:53 am »

When I try to do some apt-get upgrades, I've got several fails.
Is this easy to repair or... ?
I've already done an 'apt-get autoremove', but the errors remain.

Users / Filter the KNX Motion detection?
« on: January 18, 2016, 08:35:36 am »

I've got several motion detector around my house to activate some outside lights. But for the moment, they're triggered a lot by moving trees/plants... Fe i've got 35 times last night that a light went on (and off). Luckily i'm using all 'leds', but nevertheless. I would like to limit this a bit on an intelligent way (=by linuxmce i would like to say?).

I was thinking for example to use an kind of event that needs 2x times a input trigger before it activate the light. But can't find the proper formula for this.

Any tips or examples for it?

Users / EIB segmentation fault
« on: December 14, 2015, 01:11:00 pm »

Just did some apt-get upgrades, rebooted my server, and my EIB won't start anymore.  :-[
I'm getting a segmentation fault.

Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1044981:/# /usr/bin/eibd -D -T -R -S -i -u --daemon=/var/log/eibd.log ipt:

Any idea what i'm doing wrong, or what can be done to troubleshoot this?

ps the IP is correct, my core is

Users / Weather is using a lot of CPU?
« on: July 01, 2015, 08:43:50 am »

Is it normal that the script 'Weather' is using all available cpu resources?
When I check with htop, I can see it's using about 40% of my cpu...
This should be the command that is running:

Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/Weather -d 227 -r localhost -l /var/log/pluto/227_Weather.log

Users / Events are missing the 'OR'-function?
« on: June 17, 2015, 11:40:21 am »
Not sure if it's me, or if there's a special reason, but i'm missing a bit a 'or' function in the events.
I just have 'AND' or 'NOT'.

It would be nice if i could say for example:
Code: [Select]
If button1 OR button2 is pushed, THEN...Today, I need to create 2 events for this.

Is this corerct? Or are there workarounds for this?

Installation issues / [SOLVED] SIP Phones with 14.04
« on: June 11, 2015, 10:29:58 am »

After upgrading to LinuxMCE 1404, i've noticed that my cisco phones (sip) aren't registrating anymore.
The extension number on my phones has a little cross

This solved the issue for me:

Code: ( /etc/asterisk/modules.conf ) [Select]
should be
Code: ( /etc/asterisk/modules.conf ) [Select]

And restart asterik...
Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/asterisk restart

See for a better solution...

Installation issues / Delayed events not working
« on: June 05, 2015, 08:41:53 am »

For several lights, I built in an event that delayed some minutes, and power off the lights. (fe cellar, attick, outside lights triggered by sonar...).
But with version 14.04 / 12.04, it seems that the delay isn't working anymore? I inserted the exact same command as in 8.10, but my lights keep on.
Any idea how/where I could solve this?

Installation issues / 14.04 Firewall / Port forwarding
« on: June 04, 2015, 03:04:10 pm »
Is it possible that there's an issue with the port forwarding in the firewall part?
When I add a rule to forward port 10100 towards , it's not being added.

It doesn't show up in my iptables either...

Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1044981:~# iptables -t nat -L

Installation issues / eibd/knx in 14.04
« on: April 27, 2015, 08:03:14 pm »
Not sure if I can mention issues with the latest linuxMCE 14.04 here.  :-[
Can you point me else to the correct place?

I was trying to link my eibd/knx installation, and if I follow the wiki for EBI.
The default interface (template 2195) with lights (template 37) should work out of the box from 10.04 or higher.
But it isn't. :$
The lights aren't responding.

I installed the bcusdk package with apt-get, added the route and started eibd.
And I can control my lights through CLI.
But still not through the GUI.

I then just copy the file /usr/pluto/bin/EIB from the old server to the new server, and restarted LinuxMCE.
And the GUI also works.

Let me know if I can test/do anything else...

Installation issues / LinuxMCE 14.04 on ESXi?
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:42:03 am »

Finally came to a point that I can give 14.04 a test run.
I want to do this on ESXi since most of my home machines run on there, and it's a great way to split the resources/risks/...

But when i try to install the "LMCE­ 1404­ 20150326121­930361.iso", it starts to install linux, and it gets stuck on the desktop. Everything has been copied and so, but i'm getting the kubuntu destktop, without any icons or so.
Any hints?

ps Is there any way to install it as an 'application' instead of full system?

Users / Android Orbiter 16:9 fails to show the bottom menu
« on: March 11, 2015, 11:08:28 am »

Not sure what went wrong during my last restore. But seems that I can't get my android orbiter properly configured.

When I generate the orbiter with 4:3, it's working great. Except that the screen of my mobile isn't filled completely.
But when I generate it with 16:9, i'm missing my bottom menu (where you can select the rooms, users...), I just have the first icon.  And when I click on a 'scenario', the screen goes black. Nothing else.

Any idea how I could solve this?

Installation issues / No incoming phone calls?
« on: January 08, 2015, 02:19:41 pm »

After a reinstallation of 1004, my incoming calls aren't working anymore.
I can call outside, I can call internally, but when you try to dial in, i'm directly forwarded to the voicemail.

When I check my phone devices, all phones are in there, but they're not registred? Not sure if that's normal?

Any clue what I can check?

I did an import of my old databases (pluto & asterisk).
I needed also to rename the files /usr/pluto/bin/ since they crash my installation completely. My sql-database went crazy, and in my processes, a lot of these scripts were running.

Installation issues / Installing 12.04
« on: December 13, 2014, 05:59:18 pm »

I'm trying to install the 12.04 with the 'oh crap the dvd did not work for me' way.

But once i've downloaded the script, i encounter issues to download the soft:

Installation issues / Qorbiter creates a lot of Generic Proxy Orbiter?
« on: September 22, 2014, 05:58:09 pm »
Finally found the time to get my phones (android) back up with LinuxMCE.

When I add an qorbiter following, my linuxMCE goes nuts (I think). In no time, I've got about 20 'Generic Proxy Orbiters'. Not sure why he does that, or if it's normal. And when I try to connect with my phone, I keeps on saying 'please wait'.

I've got also the feeling that when I do a regen or full regen on the server, it's done in about 1 sec. So I don't think that it's doing a lot.

In the logs, i've got:

Users / What Android app to use
« on: July 29, 2014, 09:13:11 am »

Before, I used an android app to control my home. But I can't seem to find this app anymore.  ???

The only app I can find is the qorbiter. But honestly, this doesn't have a good GUI for a smartphone (LG Nexus 5). I tried to change the skins, but it keeps returning to the 'red-like' skin. fe When I want to select a room, I need to scroll and scroll and scroll, and I see a lot of ID of devices I prefer not to see. The floor layout is so small it's not usefull.

So any hints where I can find the old app, or if I can change a setting in order to have a more userfriendly GUI with the qorbiter?
