Installation issues / Re: Dianemo IOS oribitor - Linuxmce
« on: October 13, 2012, 01:18:53 am »
That makes sense but why when I touch the buttons on the ipod does it not doing anything? I guess my main problem is I can't do anything on the ipod except see/view the standard linuxmce interface which is what I'm used to on a pc web orbitor or a web browser... The app is nice for full screen viewing  on the ipod and would like to control things like I do on the computer.... I turned on the load indicator and when I touch the screen no matter where/what button it just seems to refresh like F5 when refreshing a web page.


Installation issues / Dianemo IOS oribitor - Linuxmce

Hi, I downloaded the app on my ipod and have successfully connected it to Linuxmce 810. However what is the proper skin to get the dianemo look since it appears as just the standard linuxmce skin. I am assuming I don't have the right skin loaded or something wrong because when I try to touch the buttons the screen simply just refreshes on the ipod.

It's possible to integrate Google Voice calling with Asterisk using an Obi110. The Obi110 is similar to the SPA3102, developed by (much of) the same team. This is something I am going to be working on for my own system. What has to be done is to set up one of the Obi110's two configurable services for Google Voice, the other for Asterisk. I'm way out of my element with phone setups, so it's going to take me some time to do... If there's anyone familiar with asterisk who has a spare $45 (cost of the Obi110) and a little time, I'd recommend you beat me to the punch.

Or you could just do it without buying any additional hardware as shown above. :) Instead of using Obi110 as a gateway you are using yate as the gateway.

This used to be asterisk's solution which has been broken for quite some time:

Note that Google's changes to their Google Voice system have rendered much of these capabilities inoperable, in many cases, or unreliable, in most cases.

As I understand Asterisk doesn't support a google voice configuration at all. Until Asterisk supports this there will be no "right" way to do this.  I don't understand why this wouldn't pass "correctly" into linuxmce's custom dialing context either?  LinuxMCE really is still handling everything as it normally would. I think of Yate as being a voip provider in this case. Am I wrong?

....Well at least until the end of this year. I have successfully set this up on LinuxMCE 8.10 final using Google Voice.  I have found out that Asterisk support for this is basically zero at this time so I am using Yate as a gateway to do this. Inbound and outbound calls are working %100 of the time with this configuration.   Note: I am sure yate can be successfully installed on linuxmce and configured. I had trouble with this even though it seems to install successfully. Right now it is running on a separate windows virtual server.

*I understand that I may not be the first to do this with asterisk but as far as I can tell this is the only up to date documentation out there that actually works and the only one that seems to work well with linuxmce.

FreePBX/asterisk configuration (linuxmce web admin/advanced/phone setup)

The next three screenshots show the configuration for the trunk.
Outbound caller ID I have set as my google voice number (with area code) in this format: xxxxxxxxxx

The IP address and port below are the yate gateway (windows server which by the way is on a virtual machine as is my linuxmce core).  (the main configuration that tells asterisk where to route outgoing calls)

Outbound Route
Showing route name (can be anything), dial patterns, and the selected trunk (created above).

Setup an inbound route. The only requirements here are to give a description and choose an extension. My extension is actually a Cisco 7970 phone!

Click General settings and scroll all the way to the bottom and change “Allow Anonymous Inbound SIP Calls” to yes and click Submit Changes. (Note: To me this is a very little security risk, linuxmce is behind a second firewall and because no ports are forwarded to linuxmce from the second firewall the only device that will ever be allowed to call is anything within my local network and in this case it will only be the yate gateway.)  You can of course set this up to just allow the IP of the yate gw but this is the easiest and quickest way to get things working.

Be sure to click "Apply Configuration Changes" when done.

Yate Configs

Yate configuration was followed exactly with a couple exceptions via the following link:

The only tweaks to the tutorial above were related to the regexroute.conf file.
1)   You do not need to do anything with regfile.conf

2)    Do not add the following line:

3)   Do not add the following under contexts as show in the guide. Modify it as shown below and add it under [default] (change user to the asterisk ext (ex: 201) and the IP to your linuxmce IP address)


Enjoy free calling! I have some additional tweaks and troubleshooting info I would like to add.  This was possible because of the great support from the guys at yate.  A big thanks to them, mainly Paul C for his help with some of the yate configuration.

Thanks for the help by the way!

It actually seems to be working fine now. I have tried many movies and music and they seem to be working as expected. I think it was probably a glitch with the A/V wizard originally.

Yes, of course. I got it from the Creative website -

The file name is XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00.tar.gz

I have the Fatality pro series which I think is the latest sound card and this driver works for all creative xfi cards and it works with 32bit and 64bit linux versions.  I was unable to get it working with linuxmce 7.10 so that is why i am now using the alpha version 8.10.  Everything is actually working great after messing around with some more stuff.  I now even have my smarthome automation lighting system working. If only I could get DTS and dolby sound working now :(

Hi I installed Kubuntu 8.10 and the latest alpha build of linuxmce. I had some trouble getting my graphics and sound working at first but once I got the drivers installed and configured everything seemed to be great.  When I run the AV wizard I get the graphics configured fine and the first part of the regular sound test goes through just fine.  When it starts the DTS and Dolby tests all I hear is garbled or fuzzy sound.  I know my sound card and receiver is cable of DTS and Dolby. My sound card is a Creative XFi hooked up via optical to my receiver. Is there any other settings I need to look for and download any additional software to make it work?

Thank you!
