type "sudo vhusbdpi -o &" to leave it background in terminal or when setting it run at boot.
Actually you need to do

sudo ./vhusbdpi -b

and that will run in the background and you dont need to keep a terminal or login open.

Is it possible to provide an executable that doesn't have dependencies on libgtk? I want to install this on raspbian server edition and would rather not have to install a lot of unnecessary libraries.

A version of the server without the GTK requirement is now available at http://www.virtualhere.com/usb_server_software

To be honest: Why is there a raise of 10$ for the raspberry? Now the purchase makes no more sense in my eyes. The raspberry is about 30$, the licence is 30$.
Out-of-the-box USB servers are available for about 50$... :| Somehow sad, because I liked the approach of using "free" hardware for this USB sharing purpose.

Can any version of the client be expected for Mac OS 10.6.8 or Desktop Ubuntu?

I have a Brother DCP 8070d with a scanner, and when it is attached to a computer you can scan to file by pressing a button on the machine. Can you do this with VirtualHere, too? How does it know which computer to use? (Ideally, it could save it to my NAS...)

Unfortunately, OSX 10.6.8 wont be supported, but the linux client will eventually be supported, it is on my todo list

Yes you can do this with virtualhere, attach the printer to the raspberry pi, and on the client, "Use" the printer . Then press the scan button and it will scan to file on your computer.

By-the-way, I have written virtualhere for the QNAP and Synology NAS, so if you have one of those there is a version you can install on your NAS directly and dont need the raspberry pi.

Is it possible to "connect" and "disconnect" any device in command line?

For example:

Code: Select all

vh.exe --connect <DEVICE-ID>
myapplication.exe --do_something_which_needs_the_device
vh.exe --disconnect <DEVICE-ID>

No, not at the moment, i am thinking of adding an API to the client. it will take some work so it might have to wait to version2

For those that were waiting, i have added a VirtualHere USB Linux client and an VirtualHere USB OSX client now... also the client can run as a service for osx and windows (and linux with a bit of manual scripting) and the client has an API

Hi!

I downloaded your app from the Pi Store. Then I went to the OEM page that's referred to on the app's description. There it mentions how to download and install the app manually. But I've already installed it via the Pi Store!

What should I do now? How can I access the Virtual Here Server on my Pi? Are there any settings to it? How do I specify which USB device to share? Does this software have a gui? If not, what commands should I use for this?

Thanks!

I've been searching this website (virtualhere.com) since the past half hour...

* There's no info on what command starts the server (terminal / background)
* where is the config.ini file located (FAQ only details that it's in the same folder as the vhusbd)
* FAQ don't have a separate page for users who've installed it via the Pi Store.
* When I click on run in the Pi Store's app download display, it just starts the server. Doesn't start it in background.
* The app is installed, but I don't know how to run it. I type vhusbd in terminal, and it says that command not found.


EDIT: I'm thinking of uninstalling the app from my Pi Store Library, and then reinstalling it from the VirtualHere.com website...

Some basic Linux commands should tell you where the server binary is installed.

Code: Select all

http://linux.die.net/man/1/whereis
For example:

Code: Select all

whereis vhusbd
I cannot tell you what to do if installed via Pi Store. I install all my applications with the command line.
Maybe you should try the same for VirtuelHere. It's not that hard to do and you'll know where your files are located afterwards.

I tried whereis, it only gave the following output:

Code: Select all

$: whereis vhusbd
vhusbd: 
$: 
I've uninstalled the Pi Store version, and have downloaded the online website version (with gui)... File downloaded, but I don't know how to run it / install it...

EDIT: I managed to run the file (sudo ./vhusbdpi), and while it was running, it got detected on my windows 7 64bit system. I had connected a Pen Drive to my USB Hub.

How can I undo the commands used to set the app on startup? It's taking a lot of CPU and the pi-pc gets slower...

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/har ... c.d.8.html

So the command should be something like

Code: Select all

update-rc.d vhusbdpin remove

After that command, should I remove the file (vhusbdpin) from both /bin/ and /int.d/ folders?

Or would those files be removed automatically?

That is not necessary. The application stays in /bin and the script stays in /etc/init.d but they have to be started manually by this command:

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/vhusbdpin start
Of course you can delete both files to gather some more KB of space on your SD card.

ok! Thanks! I figured out that my Raspberry-Pi was slow due to autostart of tightvnc on startup...

Changed that now... Thanks again!

Hello,

I was trying to install virtualhere server on my Rasberry PI B+ board running on "Raspbian". I have downloaded all the required files from "https://www.virtualhere.com/oem_faq" and followed steps. After updating it gives me warning as : " 'S16resize2fs_once' missing LSB tags and override and 'resize2fs_once' missing LSB tags and override". i have ignored them and rebooted board. Then i was observing logs in file /usr/sbin/config.ini, it has info as "it=1415012779 UseAVAHI=1" and nothing related to server information as mentioned in "https://www.virtualhere.com/configuration_faq". Please let me know how to trouble shoot starting of server.

Hi developers,

I have a question do you have experience using Hasp for raspberry pi 2.

Thanks for your time.
