Re: Peppy player

Try to set the following property in the file /home/pi/Peppy/config.txt: touchscreen = True If it doesn't help I would recommend to install the Headless disk image and the touchscreen driver on top of it. That disk image has all required software installed. After driver installation change the prope...

freedb mirror

As you probably know since 05.31.2020 freedb is not available anymore. But there is a mirror of the freedb.org - gnudb.org. In the Peppy Player I used freedb.org to get CD artists, album names and track names. To fix that in the player I replaced the freedb API endpoint: self.freedb_server_url = 'ht...

If you are planning to use the Random Screensaver please follow these steps: 1. login to Pi 2. cd Peppy 3. git fetch 4. git checkout origin/master -- screensaver/random/random.py That should pull the patched file for the Random Screensaver from GitHub.

The problem is in the file encoding. When the player reads the file it expect encoding utf-8, but the file was saved from browser as utf-8-sig.

Hi Alex, Assuming that that was the only change, more likely the issue is related to the encoding of the file weather-config.txt if you changed it from the Web UI. To fix that issue you can login using Putty and then run the following command. The exact folder name can be different. It depends on th...

Re: tips on embedding rpi

Is the clock functionality the only task for Pi? If this is the case and you don't need desktop you can use Raspbian Lite OS and start your script from /etc/rc.local. To remove scrolling boot messages in the file /boot/cmdline.txt change fbcon=map:10 to fbcon=map:2

Good luck
