Users / # Images for a room limited?
« on: August 02, 2012, 02:53:55 pm »

Is there somewhere a limit to the number of rooms/images?

i'm having about 25 rooms.
And for about 15 rooms i want to add an image.

For 12 rooms, it worked. But suddently, i can't add images to it?
  • I thought there was something wrong with those images, so i re-used a 'working' image. No luck.
  • Maybe something wrong with those rooms? So i create an extra one, no luck.

Any idea why i can't upload any (room)images anymore?

Users / Change a template
« on: July 31, 2012, 02:26:37 pm »

Today, i've created my EIB connection through the old fashion way (install by console bladibladibla...).
Now i seen that Foxi352 wrote a EIBD wikiwhere EIB is integrated in version 10.04.

My question now is, can i change the template of my current EIB?

This without loosing all child device for this?
Since i've got about 60 switches and so, it would be nice that i don't have to recreate them all... ;)

Users / [SOLVED] Prefix, dialplan in 1004
« on: July 31, 2012, 10:23:24 am »

Is there a way to update/change the dialplan under LinuxMCE 1004?
I would like to control/limit my outgoing calls to only national ones.

So i need something in the form of:
  • fixed number: 01 234 56 78
  • cell phones: 0123 45 67 89

And since its a small home, an outgoing prefix is also a bit 'much'... ;)

Installation issues / [SOLVED] IP Camera in 1004
« on: July 25, 2012, 09:34:30 am »

I've got some IPCAM02 running, and i want them to add in LinuxMCE.
But don't succeed to it. :$

I've tried adding them 'surveillance camera' as a 'generic motion ip camera - 1916' and as an 'advanced IP camera'. But couldn't get a image running.
Does anybody has an example what i need to add?
Fe i'm adding the IP, the MAC, the username (admin) and password.

Next to it, i found in that you also could motion wrapper.
But couldn't find this in 1004.
Is it still in there, another location...?

ps a manual for the IPCAM is located here:


Installation issues / [solved] 10.04 / asterisk / creating phones
« on: July 24, 2012, 03:30:56 pm »

I'm trying to install some phones in 10.04. I've got a bunch of cisco 7940 & 7960 phones that have SIP installed on.
In LMCE, i go to 'Wizard'  > 'devices' > 'phones'.

I add following information for the first phone
  • Phonename: office
  • Location: office
  • sip password: sip
  • IP adress:
  • MAC: 11:22:33:44:55:66
The phone is properly configured.
A SIP112233445566.cnf is created.

Now i'm adding a second phone:
  • Phonename: bedroom
  • Location: bedroom
  • sip password: sip
  • IP adress:
  • MAC: 11:22:33:44:55:77

When i now check the tftpboot folder, a SIP112233445577 is created.
But the webpage seems to keep refreshing?  >:(

Next i'm checking with the command top in a console. And i see that some scripts keep returning. They disapperar, coming back...
  • db_phone_config
  • configure_cisco

And the files in the folder tftpboot are recreating the whole time?

Any idea what's going on?
Not sure what to do (beside rebooting the server)... ???

Help Wanted / Q24U IP Camera
« on: July 02, 2012, 12:30:29 pm »
Does anybody has experience with the Q24U IP Camera?
I can buy some camera's for 60 euro's / piece. But of course, they should work with linuxmce... ;)

Users / Respond to events (howto?)
« on: April 15, 2012, 05:05:39 pm »

It's been a while since i tried to configure my linuxmce more in detail.
I can control all lights with my server. So this part is covered (output relays).
Next step is my lightbuttons in house. But for this, i don't know how i can see if linuxmce is picking up the signal from the button. I'm playing around with 'respond to events', but i've got the feeling that this isn't working as it should be. Do you need to do something special for the events? Is there anything where i need to pay attention to?

I've tried following 4 scenario's:

Scenario 1:
   Event: A sensor is tripped
   What device: Button 0/0/35
   What time of day: DAY
   Trigger: Tripped = 1
   Command: lighting wizard: Light 0/2/15 ON

Scenario 2:
   Event: Someone rings the doorbell
   What device: Button 0/0/35
   Command: lighting wizard: Light 0/2/15 ON

Scenario 3: Test Phone (ip phones are working perfectly with the system)
   Event: there's an incoming call
   Which phone: PhoneA
   What time of day: DAY
   Command: lighting wizard: Light 0/2/15 ON

Scenario 4: Test DeviceOn
   Event: A device is turned on
   What device: Light 0/2/15
   Event ON/OFF = 1
   Command: lighting wizard: light 0/2/16 & 0/2/17 ON

ps with a command line, i can activate 0/2/15 in the correct way. So my interconnection between the server and my domotica (eib) is working...

Users / 'Blank' passwords
« on: February 23, 2012, 10:31:06 am »

I searched a bit, but couldn't find a straight answer.
How (and what's the risk) to change the default 'blank' password?

The database user is using a blank password, as well as the asterisk admin.
Can i just change this password? Or will it have impact on other stuff as well?

I was thinking about changing:
  • mysql user root
  • /etc/pluto.conf
  • asterisk admin user
  • ...

Reason for all this is that of course it's not very secure to use 'blank' password. And lately, a lot of software don't allow 'blank' passwords (fe phpmyadmin) by default...

Users / [Solved] Shares (backdoor access?)
« on: February 17, 2012, 10:51:46 am »

I've got some users configured in linuxmce.
When somebody access now the server from a windows 7 client, he sees following in the network neighbour:

  • User1
  • User2
  • Public
  • Home

When he's user1, he has access to User1 and Public, but not to User2. Nice, like it should be.
But he can open Home, and open in there User2. So not nice...

Any idea what i'm doing wrong?


Installation issues / Some calls are being made
« on: February 17, 2012, 10:41:59 am »

I'm playing around with some phone & linuxMCE. At first sight, very simple (once you figure out how to put your cisco phone on SIP), and it works perfectly.
Internally, i can do some calls, to the external world it works... I've request and external number now, so waiting delivery to test incoming calls...

But when i look in my logs, from time to time, some strange entries. I'm wondering who is answering this.
  • The phone calls don't make it to the outside world (000xxxx). My provider logs stay empty....
  • And the calls from 101 to 101? I don't have an extension 101...
Do i need to worry about something or is this normal behaviour?

Users / Fresh installation with asterisk issues...
« on: February 11, 2012, 01:31:15 pm »

I've just reinstall the whole linuxmce server because i thought i messed up the asterisk module.
After the installation of 8.10 and a restore of the database pluto_main (that's all i did), i'm not able to launch asterisk 'properly'.

I'm getting the errors:
  • Error Could not reload FOP server
    Could not reload the FOP operator panel server using the script. Configuration changes may not be reflected in the panel display.
    Added 2 minutes ago
  • symlink from modules failed
    retrieve_conf failed to sym link the /etc/asterisk/sip.conf file from modules
    Added 2 minutes ago
  • Failed to copy from module agi-bin
    Retrieve conf failed to copy file(s) from a module's agi-bin dir: copy(/usr/share/asterisk/agi-bin/directory): failed to open stream: Permission denied
    copy(/usr/share/asterisk/agi-bin/list-item-remove.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied
  • Default SQL Password Used
  • No email address for online update checks

When i now add a phone in linuxmce, the asterisk picks up the extension.
But i'm a bit afraid to go on with my installation. Is it safe to go on, or will this mess up my whole setup later on?

Thanks to point me to the right direction...

Feature requests & roadmap / Newsletter / mailing
« on: January 31, 2012, 07:44:39 am »
Maybe an idea to bring a kind of newsletter in the scope?
This way, new plug-ins/versions/skins/nice-to-know/... -things can be better announced?

Personally i want to stay up to date about new evolutions.
It's a bit hard to go each time through the wiki's, the site, the forum to see if anything is changed.

Of course, different ways are possible:
  • mailing
  • blog/rss (think this can be the best way?)
  • updates over fb/twitter
  • ...

Users / Weborbiter Automatic login
« on: January 26, 2012, 05:44:12 pm »
Does anybody knows a way to login automaticlly to a weborbiter from a certain pc?

I know you can do it on server level, but of course, you open everything at this moment.
i've got 2 pc's where i would like to make a shortcut to a weborbiter. So only a double click should open it up and let you control your house...

Users / Upgrade from 810 to 1004
« on: January 20, 2012, 08:00:13 am »

I think I messed up my asterisk module in linuxmce (see this topic).
And probably the best (fasted) way is to reinstall the whole server...

I was now wondering if I could take a backup of my 840 server, install the 1004 server and restore the backup over there.
Or better not?

Users / All network nodes
« on: January 18, 2012, 08:14:52 am »
I'm wondering if it's useful to add all your nodes to the core. Things like printers, workstations, wireless access points... Today i'm suffering some 'human' issues with this.

My home network runs in another domain then the core router. So when i browse my network, i see different domains. And not all my nodes have a nice dns name.
I tried to put them with webmin in the DNS and so. But when i reboot the core, it retake the dcerouter name and pluto domain.  ???
I already added a lot of stuff into dhcpd-extra, but this isn't added in my normal domain.

Okay, i hear you saying to change my 'home domain', but i want to avoid this since a lot of maps/scripts/... are running with this. So i'm thinking now to add all devices as 'child devices' in the core?

I'm just wondering how you guys solve this situations...
