Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

We're on the list too...

It's a good product but lacks some practical funtionality (integrated file/upload manager etc...)

We'll look forward to seeing what you have coming down the road OR if you need Beta testers, I'd be willing to help out

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Hmmm...

I just pulled it again and all went without a hitch

Now working

When is the pro version going to hit?

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Firstly, that's for the code tweak!

Sorry to bug you on this..

We did an update to the 3 files server.py viewer.py and splash.tpl and we're still getting an error when eth0 is not present

Suggestions?

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I saw that but that's not exactly what I would like to do

if eth[0] = null
then
Display page "you need a network connection to edit content o this device"
else
Display splash

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Quick question

Which would be the way easiest to elimnate the error thrown when there's no internet connection?

Right now we get a splash page error then screenly starts playing

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I did use a sudo command in front of the screenly install

That's probably it

We'll try again

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Question:

When it comes to connectivity, is that handled by the line

my_ip = netifaces.ifaddresses('eth0')[2][0]['addr']

in server.py?

What's the easiest way to have it not throw an error if a network connection is not in place?

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

The wireless was for test purposes in a controlled environment

WiFi in the real world is dodgy at best

Thank you for your patience...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

We're still getting the splash_pager error and I think we've figured it out It would appear there is a check for connectivity to the web and if there isn't the error appears We were using a wireless connection and got the error even though we were able to shell into the RPi Once I established a wire...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I loaded apache and it's working fine

The problem is now the splash screen is looking for 127.0.0.1/splash_screen and it throws an error then the content begins serving fine from local

Just wondering how to address the splash screen error without breaking anything

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Local Host

PI runs localhost at 127.0.1.1 and Screenly at 127.0.0.1

Is there a reason for this...?

Can they be the same IF I wanted to host files locally?

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Fair enough...

Which version of the OS should I use or works best for screenly?

8/8, 8/16 or other?

Thanks!

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Like I wrote above. That isn't required. Just configure the machine to enable launch X at boot. Here's our "issue" now... If we use raspi-config and change the desktop to start on boot, screenly does not work If we disable it and manually start with "startx &" it does work... As to the video, we're...

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Yes...

The images and video are all served up that way...

The video simply does not play

It's not a fail upon setting a schedule...

Re: expand rootfs lead to not working sshd

We're in the 30 minute waiting period hoping I didn't bork the file system

Of course I re-booted more than once to ensure that I wrecked it

Time for a cuppa and wait...
