Fruitbox was working properly

After doing the ~ / .bashrc,
it boots on fruitbox but the keyboard (usb) does not work

Thank mike
Make sure you run fruitbox last in the .bashrc, or run it in the background using...

Code: Select all

./fruitbox --cfg <your skin file> &

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

With a GUI It's worth trying without a GUI (i.e. quit the GUI or boot the Pi straight to the command line)...I've not really tested fruitbox in the GUI environment, but have noticed that its console output doesn't always echo to the terminal, so there may be a few issues running in this environment...

Hi, I've had several general questions about some of the various fruitbox settings, so thought I'd give a quick summary of some of the features that you can easily play around with. You can of course design a skin from scratch, or heavily modify or customise an existing one, but if you just want to ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Me again... I hooked up some other speakers that I know have a great sound but it's just missing something. I've installed the alsa equalizer and it seems to have no effect on the output. I'm assuming that's because it's hard coded directly to the hardware? If not, is there a way to route the audio...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

So through experimenting, I've found you can also apply a rotation to variable text objects such as $NOW_PLAYING but when I do it rotates all text items on the screen. Is there a way to rotate individual text objects? Hi, The rotation is applied to the whole object, so if for example you have a sta...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I know you're working on adding things to this and I've been having a blast playing with skinning. As you can tell, I'm not creating the "standard" jukebox look and have a question about the labels for song selection. Is there currently a way to have it show a joined Artist - Title (including the d...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

So much more of this makes sense now. You kept referring me to the user manual which didn't make sense to me since it was of no use. Apparently when I typed in the command to create it, I fat fingered something and the resulting file contained only the same few lines you get from the command prompt...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Do you have a schematic showing pinouts to the buttons? Sorry, no I don't have any schematics. For my jukebox, I just connected each button to an unused GPIO pin (one button pin) and GND (the other button pin). I then used the Adafruit "retrogame" utility to map those GPIO pins to generate keyboard...
