Users / Can not place international calls in 10.04
« on: March 24, 2014, 08:38:16 pm »

I have trouble placing international calls. If I connect to asterisk and set verbosity to 3 I get the following output when placing the call

Code: [Select]
  == Using SIP RTP CoS mark 5
[2014-03-24 20:18:07] NOTICE[2009]: pbx_realtime.c:371 realtime_exec: No such application 'Meetme' for extension '000NNNNNNNNNNN' in context 'from-lmce-custom'

  == Spawn extension (from-internal, h, 1) exited non-zero on 'SIP/202-00000029'

the first 0 is the prefix I set for the phone line and the following 00 is my normal international prefix. NNNNNNNNN is the phone number (including country code).

I place the call from a SIP phone connected directly to the lmce subnet. National calls work both fix and mobile. I haven't done enough testing to say for sure that the problem is related to international calls only, but it seems like it. Maybe the three 0's mean something to asterisk, so it does something I did not intend?

Any solutions or further troubleshooting ideas are highly appreciated!


Users / 10.04 Telecom problem
« on: February 20, 2013, 08:11:45 pm »
I made a fresh install of 10.04 which worked like a charm (thanks l3mce!).

I have a problem with outgoing calls. For some reason my area code is prepended to all numbers I dial, which makes outgoing calls impossible. I don't know how the system figured out my are code and why it decided to prepend it.

Since freepbx is no longer available I have no idea how to fix this problem. I would guess I have to fiddle with either the dial patterns or dial rules, but I do not know how to do that. I have digged around in the asterisk mysql database without really finding my way.

Advice would be appreciated! Maybe someone has a link that describes the asterisk real time database? I have searched the wiki without result.


Users / WMP doesn't connect to LMCE Media Tomb server
« on: February 26, 2012, 12:03:17 pm »
Hi all,

I am running WMP11 on Vista. It shows the myth tv UPnP server but not the LMCE media tomb server. I can see it in the network neighborhood and access the web interface, but WMP won't connect to it.

I am running LMCE 8.10 on my core. I tried searching in this forum, in media tomb forum and in WMP forum. No real success...

Someone else had this problem?


Users / No sound when receiving call during media playback
« on: February 05, 2012, 11:12:33 am »
Hi all

When I receive a call on my MD during media playback, the soft phone does not produce any sound. There is no ring sound, and if I answer the call I can not hear the other person. If there is no media playing, the sound works fine. I have looked in the logs for the relevant devices, without finding any errors.

Does anybody have any advice for trouble shooting?

I am running 8.10 with latest updates.


Users / Asterisk hacked
« on: December 26, 2011, 03:04:33 pm »
Hi all!

Hope y'all had a very merry Christmas!

Like the subject indicates I got my asterisk hacked the other day resulting in a huge phone bill. I had a look at the phones in the system and the auto generated SIP passwords seem very difficult to guess. Yet someone succeeded. In the call log I could see that there were calls placed from all extensions in my system. Apparently someone took the pain to crack all of my passwords, which surprised me a bit.

I had a peek at the firewall, and maybe some of you guys can shed some light on how this works. There is a rule to open up port 5060 for udp. This seems inevitable if you want to place and receive external calls. But I guess this also opens up a security risk?

Just as a test I removed this rule to see what would happen. To my surprise, external calls still work. Is this normal? I did a quick reload router. Maybe I need to restart the core? Besides, the firewall used, is it a separate LMCE firewall or is it the kernel built-in one? I launched gufw and it indicated that the kernel firewall was turned off.

Is the general recommendation to have a strict dial plan to avoid having hackers placing calls to expensive phone numbers? Or do I have some security problem with my system that I am not aware of?

Any suggestions or information is welcome!

Happy new year everyone!


Installation issues / [SOLVED] Sound and video problems with 810 rc1
« on: September 11, 2011, 09:29:28 pm »

Experiencing several problems with a snapshot from October 2010 I installed rc1. I have an MD with a geforce 9300 that worked out of the box earlier. Now, I did not get any sound nor video. Starting with the sound I got the following:

Code: [Select]
sambahelper@moon35:~$ aplay -l      
aplay: device_list:217: no soundcards found...

Code: [Select]
sambahelper@moon35:~$ lspci -v
00:08.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP79 High Definition Audio (rev b1)
        Subsystem: nVidia Corporation MCP79 High Definition Audio
        Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 20
        Memory at fe020000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
        Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

The only thing I have done is to upgrade alsa to 1.0.23 (which is what I was using before).

As for video:

Code: [Select]
sambahelper@moon35:~$ grep -i "x driver" /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver  195.36.15  Thu Mar 11 22:01:49 PST 2010

This is the version I used before.

Does anyone know what has happened since last year that could explain this behavior? Any logs I should examine?


Users / flash player issue
« on: July 28, 2011, 09:33:54 pm »
I have a new MD on 8.10 and when I want to install flash player to watch youtube I can not do that since adobe only have for ubuntu versions 9.04+.

I tried

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
but it said I already have the latest version.

Earlier when flash player was available for older versions on adobes site I know I got it to work. Someone who knows how I should get a working version?


Users / [Solved] Block telemarketing numbers
« on: February 03, 2011, 12:23:35 am »
Is there a way to block such numbers, e.g via the web admin?



There is already support for hulu for those living in the us. I guess just about any country has something similar. In my case I would like to access through the UI.

I am relatively new to linuxmce, but maybe someone with more experience could tell me if the plumbing for integrating this already exists, or if you need to dig deep into the code.

I.e. I would like to understand if I could do this myself :-)

Any advice is appreciated!


Users / Outside access to media
« on: January 06, 2011, 10:00:43 pm »
Hi all,

I have seen different flavors of this question on the forum, but I ask it in general:

Does LinuxMCE have any built-in support for access of my media from ouside my home network? I have found support for outside access to orbiter (web orbiter) and also the admin website, but nothing about the media itself.

Maybe that is considered unsafe...?

If linuxmce does not have this support, I guess I can do some linux hacking under the hood to access my data anyhow. I am not experienced enough to tell how (and if it is possible to do in a safe way).

any suggestions or reading tips are appreciated.

Users / Problems with create_amp_*.pl
« on: December 08, 2010, 05:18:14 pm »
Hi all,

I followed the instruction
to add support for my Swedish SIP provider ( The tech support claims they have customers running their service with asterisk. When opening up the phone line in the web admin it says "Registered <date> <hour>" under status. My guess is that this means it successfully connected to the host, and the host accepted the credentials.

Now the problem is that neither outgoing nor incoming calls work. I don't know anything about asterisk so I'm quite lost what I have messed up. The instruction was very simple and straightforward though... The only magic number I found was  $DECLARED_PREFIX = "9". It seems to be set to 9 for most, but not all, available providers. I don't know what it is, or if it is important. I tried "9" and "", same result.

When I placed a test call from my cell phone I noted the following entry in /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv/Master.csv

Code: [Select]
"","NNNNNNNNNN","s","from-pstn","""NNNNNNNNNN"" <NNNNNNNNNN>","SIP/XXXXXXXXX-b54972b0","","SayAlpha","","2010-12-07 21:46:34","2010-12-07 21:46:34","2010-12-07 21:4

Where NNN is my cell phone number and XXX is my phone number assigned by SIP provider.

Does this say anything meaningful? When I place the call a voice says "The number you have dialed is not in service. Please check the number and try again". Are there any other relevant logs that could give me a hint about whats going on?

When I try to place an outgoing call, I get the message "Call dropped. Reason: Normal clearing".

Any help is appreciated!


Users / Adding HDD with MCE file structure
« on: November 02, 2010, 10:29:14 pm »
Hi all,

I have a USB HDD that is already formatted with the mce file structure. It also has some media on it. I would like to plug it into the core and make the system understand that it is an mce file structure and use it as such. Shall I select the option "Use MCE file structure" when mce detects the drive? I don't want to loose the data on the drive...


Users / DVD rip stopped working
« on: October 29, 2010, 09:57:47 pm »

I decided to take the effort and rip my dvd collection for convenience, using the built in ripping functionality in MCE. After successfully ripping four DVDs I decided to also rip an audio CD. I should probably not have done that... After this the DVD ripping does not work. Linux MCE does not recognize one single DVD, when I select rip it sets title "Unknown". Subsequent ripping fails. When I look in the web admin I find an error message "error writing to /home/public/data/video/bla bla". Audio CD ripping still works. I rip to the same drive so its not the HDD that is messing with me. The DVDs are recognized correctly in KDE. I can open them and browse the file system. It seems to be a MCE problem. Rebooting the core and the MD does not improve the situation. I also tried deleting the audio files I ripped and resynchronize the media files. No improvement. It does not complain about libdvdccs.

Does anyone recognize this problem? Is DVD recognition and ripping known to be error prone?

I have been using the system for about a month now and I must say I'm impressed by what you have accomplished! So I hope to get passed those initial hurdles... :-)


Installation issues / Orbiter failed to setup transparency
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:24:28 pm »

I saw this topic was discussed in this thread

However I didn't see any helpful info here, and it was a few years ago, so I decided to post the topic again. This problem arises when I try the UI2 with alpha blending.

When I examine the xorg.config file I can see that the driver is set to vesa. From what I understand, this means that the installer did not manage to correctly identify the graphics card. This would probably cause my problem. Any suggestions how I should go from here? Can I manually hack my xorg.config to make this work?

Some info about my system:

dedicated core with AMD phenom dual core and ATI graphics. I don't have any monitor or TV connected to the core.

diskless MD with zotac geforce 9300 motherboard. Intel core2 quad. 4 GB of corsair. (this is the one experiencing the problem)

Running 810. Made a fresh install on core from DVD. Didn't do any changes in kubuntu desktop before running mce install.

Diskless MD PXE boots without problem. AV wizard works fine. UI1 works fine. I did sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. No improvement.

Any help is appreciated!


Users / PXE boot problem in 8.10 [solved]
« on: August 01, 2010, 09:16:26 pm »
Hi all,

After doing a fresh install of 8.10 on my core server, PXE boot does not work. In 7.10 there was a default file in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ and also initrd and vmlinuz files under /tftpboot/default/. All of this is missing in my 8.10 installation.

Could anyone point out to me what I am missing out here??
