Installation issues / Re: LMCE google chrome and netflix - SOLVED!
« on: May 24, 2015, 07:55:37 pm »
And it is called.... http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Adding_new_computing_apps

:)
Hello to all, for future references, this was my output, It may help others.

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Google-chrome-stable ()", "Google-chrome-stable"

So the class_instance.class_Name for LMCE will be:

Google-chrome-stable.Google-chrome-stable. (this is what will be needed on webadmin)

Hello to all,

My two cents on Netflix!.  I Installed Google Chrome and I was able to get Netflix running Perfectly.  I Started a Post not long ago sharing how to do it. Just a few tricks on video acceleration for chrome and nvidia and running as root.
I was able to run it without any issues on a Zotac Zbox I use as MD.

The only thing I don't know how to do is to make LMCE start Chrome instead of Firefox.

Cheers,

T

Im very sorry for being so MIA as of late. Work, Life, etc has left me with little time to keep folks up to date on the happenings of development.

*Last month has been spent converting from networks skins (problematic on multiple levels) to an new way of doing things. Basically, users wont half to be part techie to update their skins. Skins will be in the application from now on.

That means that if you have recently grabbed Qorbiter for android, you should already have them on your device. I am working on the remote screens now before I make it the default.

There is a setting which will allow you to choose if you want the internal vs external.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLY8r7uR4YI This video shows how to change back and forth.

Maverick: mythtv screen isnt in there yet, but the live tv screen is. That means that when i get back from my biz trip, I can enable the mythtv screen as its basically the same as the livetv.

Thanks again to you intrepid users who are so patient. It really is helpful even if it seems like nobody is listening to your issues / responding.


And now for this

*note the ios version is using the internal skins.

Hi,  I din't seem to work for me which version is the one you are using on that youtube video?, it looks different than mine.  Im using the one I get from the webadmin.  If I download the one is on your link, I get the white background and that's it!. 
Version from my webadmin : qt5a1-gl, but is says debug at the installer.  Yours is the same, but after it says loading, I get a white screen and that's it!
The debug version does not show that skin option, can I change it manually at the xml?

Cheers,

Hi Phenigma!

Sorry for the delay!.  I just needed to do some homework, I guess I gave up easy on this one.  Netflix is running perfectly under chrome.  I just need to know now, how to add It under computing!

I followed this link:  http://www.webupd8.org/2014/01/enable-hardware-acceleration-in-chrome.html

Basically is just to enable the "Override software rendering list" restart chrome and voila!
You need to do the trick of the google chrome to run as root, all my test where done under kde desktop.  I don't know how to add it to LMCE UI, maybe someone can help.

Enjoy Netflix, as easy as that!..

Cheers,
T

I hope I don't get knocked out of the forum for this question  ;D

But I havent found anywhere in the post info to clear this bug in my mind.
Here it goes!.  In 1204, Is it still necesary after the MD is created to select at the webadmin if the md's video card is "standard video card" to "Geforce or TNT2", is it still needed?
I follow the rule that if it is working, dont touch it!, but when things start to go wrong, then is the time for testing :)!
If md installation is left alone it will install nvidia drivers, in my case v.304.  If I click on the md and change to geforce, then it prompts on the orbiter that pluto nvidia drivers are downloading.  Which drivers are this?.
In my case it never finish downloading the file and I just delete that md and start all over!, why I did that??? Ill create a new post on that... so.. anyone that could answer??

Cheers,
T

Hi mikeybs,

Any progress with this?.  I just installed one last night.  And can see 4 sensors detected.  Light sensor and temperature, the other two are detected as generic.  did you manage to get at least one working?

Installation issues / LMCE google chrome and netflix - SOLVED!
« on: April 27, 2015, 05:32:51 pm »
Hi to all,
Netflix is now supported in Linux by using Google Chrome.
I try it out but it is extremely slow because of the video acceleration on the loaded nvidia drivers of my zbox media director apparently are not supported.  I havent give too much thought on upgrading the video drivers, but I was curious if someone else have try this.
Because if this works properly, it would be as easy as adding a link in computing to launch netflix, without the issue of wine, etc, etc.
Hope to hear many opinions

Hello to All,
Im testing it on a Samsung S4.  It appears to be working but my screen is messy, only boxes with oversize text, like if skins are not working.
I could humble suggest to update the wiki page because by reading this post, is that I realized that skins are loaded by using apt-get, (wiki page http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Android_Orbiter)
How to I get the skings working, or at least get the text with a readable size?
Cheers,
Tompin

Hello to All,

This is a follow up, it took me some time to get back to trying stuff.
I finally got things working and learning from the mistakes and also from the lack of experience! aka Rookie!
Problems faced:
Zstick issue with openZWave still gets 100% cpu if you unplug it and plug it again for lights searching, so if you want to get it all working without many issues. GET the MINIMOTE!
So first:
Go to each switch with the stick and the minimote an be sure they are not connected, so remove them from the network.
Otherwise, you will face two lights going on at the same time because they have the same ID on the network (happened to me).  So go ahead and remove every single switch with the stick and the minimote too, just to be sure !
After you do that, then plug the zstick on the core, to the ResetController magic, follow the wiki procedure and add the minimote.
Plugging the zstick to a powerded usb hub, DOES help!. Don't cut that corner.
Once you see on the orbiter that a new zwave device is connected (minimote) and you see it at the core devices as controller, you are almost done.
In my case, after adding all the switches, I only saw the pop up on the orbiter that a new devices was added, nothing else happened.  I had to quick reload, and wait to really finish installing and then go to the setup wizard and go to lights, you will see the new light or lights added.
So far I have successfully added:
Single light switch, dual load switch (leviton vrcs2 2 buttons), dimmer switches also.

What is next?
Motion sensors
Kwikset locks
garage door opener and whatever zwave gadget i can!

Cheers,

T

Good news!  For the info screen I click on the title and the window goes away.  It's a little finicky I've found, and I've only got it working in Firefox, never had it work in chrome.

J.

Phenigma!, you are a Lmce god!.  Firefox made the trick!.  It loaded perfectly, so just to share, this behavior of the persistent layer is only present in Chrome and Explorer.
I will continue with the troubleshooting, find attached my network pattern.  More or less distributed the way they are installed.  Pay attention that port 14 and 13 are connecting to the network using 8.  14 and 13 are a dual circuit switch so maybe something is wrong with 8 not communicating properly, but I would like to know why it is not using the route directly to 1 since is quite close. 

Cheers,

T

Dear All!  Minimote was the solution for adding nodes.
Step by Step:
1. Reset Controller as per wiki page
2. In my case, pull the stick and join the minimote the normal way (press on the minimote the Join button, blue led starts flashing, then press the add node on the stick and they do their flashing led show letting you know that the connection was properly.  Get the stick back in.
3. Router reload.  If it says that the controller is not responding. Kill the zwave app that it eating 100% cpu and Router reload!.
4.  Go to the closest light switch and add it with the MINIMOTE, by pressing the + button.  Press the paddle of the light switch, wait for a steady blue led on the minimote and and pay attention on any of the orbiters.  If not, just give it some time and to a.
5. Router Reload, on the router reload you will see that a zwave item was found and it ill install it.  There will  be nothing else.  Either you go to the setup link under any orbiter or via webmin to set up the type of light you have and on which room it belongs.

You dont have to do lights one by one.  I decided for testing purpose only to do at least 3 and test them using the webadmin/ wizard/ lights and on and off to make sure.
Later I added them in groups for a total of 10 right now.  A mix of dimmers, single switch and multiswitch.
.
Problem faced:  After adding all the switches, the light are unresponsive!.  I guess I'm facing a zwave network issue.  I try to go to the advance zwave page but consistently a layer is set with one of the nodes that does not allow me to see the page, I cant find the way to make that ge switch window to go away .  See picture attached
I would like to see how the nodes are connected, maybe the routes are not correct.  See that there is one of the nodes that is not responding.

Cheers,
T
