[Solved] Installing padorbiter on webdt
« on: March 09, 2011, 07:56:13 am »
Hi all,

Does anyone know what happens with the usb install of the padorbiter onto the webdt?

I've installed, got the flash screen, quit the Wireless setup and went to the terminal to try and setup the WPA2. (Changed the wireless card, http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11452.0

The WPA2 and wireless is setup as ping test seems to work.

When I go back to the splash screen it seems to be stopped there.

Is there an install script I can use to get it going again or maybe something else?

thanks Josh

Some questions:

Have you disabled the included network configuration application in PadOrbiter?
Have you 'restarted networking at boot' as is recommended in the 2nd post of the ubuntu thread you referenced?
Do you have a core up and running with an Access Point on lmce's internal network?
Have you set the PadOrbiter for DHCP (on the core's internal network)?
If not, have you set PadOrbiter for a static IP on the core's internal network?

If you reached the network configuration application then PadOrbiter has installed.

Orbiter will not actually load if it cannot contact the core.  PadOrbiter will appear to freeze at the 'Lazy Tux' x-windows desktop background (not the splash screen, which looks identical but includes the progress bar).

No, The network configuration app came up and I hit cancel, then went to the terminal to setup the network. Is that all?

Yes, restarted, The webdt connects up, picks up an IP address 192.168.80.100 which is in the range for non-pluto stuff (mine is 100 to 150)
Ping the core and I get a response.

Thanks Josh

I'll try a reinstall later if I get the chance next week.

You could always try to launch Orbiter from the command line.  Are you doing this locally on the webdt or through ssh?  Can you ping the router from the webdt?  Can you ping an internet address from the webdt?  This is new territory for me as I still havn't even tested wpa on my webdt...  So I can really only offer suggestions.  You should probably look into disabling the padorbiter network config so that it doesn't ever get chance to overwrite you're network config.

Hi J,

Doing it locally, I can ping the core from the webdt.

Do you know the command to launch the orbiter and how to disable the padorbiter network config?

I'm going to try and fresh install on the weekend and see if I can get it going without security and then change it from there.

The Orbiter binary is located at /usr/pluto/bin/Orbiter

/root/.xinitrc is where TabletCFG is launched from.

Have you tried using the wpa-psk network configuration that comes with Padorbiter?

Thanks J,

To summarise, wlan0 got up and going with the new card no problems, ping worked fine but the webdt wouldn't start loading the orbiter stuff. Couldn't get the Tablet CFG to run manually.

Tried installation on another webdt with the Cisco card and no security, installed fine and orbiter came up.

Changed security to WPA2

Reinstalled again on original webdt, made the interface file changes with DHCP and WPA password, and it all started loading and now orbiter is on there!

Will now try it on the second webdt to get it running on WPA2 but I have no idea what I did.

I thought it may have had to do with the persistent net rules or the cisco card was coming up as eth0 but........

Thanks a lot for the help.
