Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

I'm using a physical button with normally open contacts to trigger the mediashow. My gpio.cfg file is : [P1-11] name = play direction = in threshold = 2 front edge = true If there isn't a method in the current version to address this I can do a workaround by putting a one=shot timer in circuit with ...

Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

Just a quick one Ken. I may have missed something in my setup but I have noticed that if the trigger is pressed after the presentation has started in pp_exhibit, the software will launch multiple versions of the presentation under the one that kicked off first. I have my mediashow set to oneshot, th...

Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

Thanks for all the help so far Ken :-) I have a mixture of jpeg, mp3 and video in my medialist. The video displays nicely, right to the edges of the screen but when the mp3 plays, the tool bars at the bottom and top are visible (the file bar in the presentation window and the desktop toolbar at the ...

Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

Hi Ken. I've looked everywhere but I cant find the gpio.cfg file that comes with the tarball download. I have written my own which goes: [P1-11] name = play direction = in threshold = 2 front edge = true Should the gpio.cfg file be in the pp_exhibit folder or in the pp_home folder? edit: I think I n...

Re: Pi Presents: A display package for museums & visitor cen

First of all I'm really grateful for this excellent presentation software. Thanks for making it available to us to run on the pi :-) I got caught out by a couple of things between the manual and the files as downloaded/installed.

Re: Jack server is not running and cannot be started

I noted on the installation dialog for eSpeak that it was installing jack2. Anyway, I've been going around in circles with this to get eSpeak...
