Re: Subsonic - Now playing on LCD display?

Thanks, im stupidly assuming i would need to put the path where it lives?

E.g python usr/sub.py if thats
where I put it?

The next stage will be getting it to auto run, and then updating evey 15 secs say.

Really thankful for your assistance.



Thanks in anticipation of your help

Re: Subsonic - Now playing on LCD display?

I have done some programming with nano. And understand c for arduino.

So i assume i create the file say sub.py copy the "adjusted" text, save it and run it? Where will it print the text. Would that be the command line, if i run it from there?


Thanks

I see many people are using "motion" for PI This is the sort of thing I wish to do https://www.youtube.com/...
