control panels

I haven't found many examples of anyone actually using the rpi with a small touch display user interface to control anything (say make a digital thermostat, or front door access lock, control your garage door, adjustable countdown timer, etc ...)...if you know of some links, I'd like to see them (as...

Up til now I've just been programming using my HDMI monitor to write a few I/O apps (blink some leds, read switches, etc). HOWEVER, all of the examples I've seen regarding adding on ...

Re: installing bluez 5.25

I figured it out.. first, I was in the wrong directory...then, I got permission denied...then I added sudo...then it finally worked!

do:
cd bluez-5.23
sudo cp attrib/gatttool /usr/local/bin

now gatttool is "present" & runs

Re: installing bluez 5.25

I did a sudo find / -name gatttool & it came up with:

/home/pi/bluez-5.23/attrib/gatttool

so it is in there. How do you get it situated so the gatttool command works (any gatttool commands return with "command not found")

without gatttool operational, I can't investigate much

bluez command set

Hello:

Where is the information detailing the various bluez "commands"? For example, hcitool has a command lecc that accepts various optional parameters (such as -random)...where are these described & explained? what do they do?

I'm looking for a link to a document or website with the details

installing bluez 5.25

What are the step required to install the latest version of bluez (5.25)? I'm just getting started with doing so & seems rather cryptic. I saw somewhere it requires D-Bus-1.8.12, GLib-2.42.1, and libical-1.0.1. However, even with an rpi update, my versions of these seem earlier (1.6.8, for dbus)
