Re: Difficulties accessing my Raspberry Pi Nginx web server

Are you trying to access the website from the internet through the same LAN that the pi is on? Many routers don't allow loopback connections, see if you can access it from an external internet connection (or a web proxy) instead.

I believe the "l" stands for little endian.

Re: Pianobar remote control

I've finally got it all figured out. When I compiled pianobar, I compiled it as root. That caused the pianobar folder to be owned by root. I just deleted pianobar and recompiled it using sudo commands instead, and it works that way everything should. Thank you so much for your help, it has been gre...

Re: Pianobar remote control

It is owned by root. I did the chown to the pianobar folder and it WORKED!! Just a question, when you installed pianobar did you download it through apt-get or did you have to compile it from git? I had to compile it so that is why the folder was owned by root I think. When I tried the pianobar fro...

Re: Pianobar remote control

What if you go to ~/.config and do "ls -l", is the pianobar folder own by root or pi/pi?

Re: Pianobar remote control

You are right, I did create the fifo as root, because I am putting it in ~/.config/pianobar/ctl according to tutorials I have been following, and it says permission denied unless you log in as root. Do you have to put the ctl file in the home directory to get it to work without root? No need to be ...

Re: Pianobar remote control

If I just create the ctl file, the permissions are prw-r--r--. I figured out the problem, although I don't know if there is any way around it. When I run pianobar as the pi user, it recognized the configuration file, but it does not load the fifo file. If I log in as root and run pianobar, it is lo...

azeam, Your project looks interesting, I will try it out at some point. I am currently working with pianobar and the fifo file, and I was wondering if you could tell me what is going on.

Either edit the file using nano, from a terminal: sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart Write your changes (drag and drop a file to nano will only display the path to the dropped file). Ctrl + x and "y" will save your changes. If you want to use leafpad you can do (from a terminal): gksudo lea...

How fast do you need the image to change? You could do a setInterval with jQuery to probe the server every X seconds and change accordingly. If you need realtime updates you could check out node.js

Got a bit of time today to improve the GUI, added option to remember login details, auto-pause on incoming phone call and some other minor stuff. Will from now on stop spamming this thread and instead keep this website updated with the latest install instructions, screenshots etc.

The main issue now is that pianobar sometimes misses the FIFO commands, haven't figured out yet if it's just the way it is or if there's some better way to send the commands. For now, just click agai...
