Hi Mark,

What are you typing after 'chmod +x ./fruitbox'?. That command won't actually give you any response, it's just giving fruitbox program executable status so you can subsequently run it. The next thing to do is run fruitbox itself as described in the next step.

To run fruitbox you must be in the directory it is installed in (i.e. rpi-fruitbox-master). What happens if you just type './fruitbox' (without the single quotes)?

That error is expected - since fruitbox.cfg doesn't exist in the installation directory. You need to specify the fruitbox.cfg from one of the skins, i.e.

Code: Select all

./fruitbox --cfg skins/WallJuke/fruitbox.cfg
Before you run it, you need to put your MP3 files somewhere, and then edit the fruitbox.cfg file to point to them (by changing the MusicPath setting).

....just follow the installation instructions exactly and you should be fine ;)

But if you're still having issues please keep asking...

Hi,
Great work. I have been looking for an RPI alternative for DWJ. Have worked on any album style skins?
Cheers Tom.

Hi Tom,

fruitbox doesn't support albums at the moment, but it will in the next release...

Cheers,
Mike

Hi,

fruitbox v1.1 is now released :)

-> *new* Support for loading and saving playlists to external files
-> Changed handling of Now Playing Artwork
-> *new* Added Album mode
-> Running fruitbox with no arguments shows help (no longer expects default fruitbox.cfg)
-> Various bug-fixes

Latest version can be fetched from GitHub as before...

https://github.com/chundermike/rpi-fruitbox

See release_notes.txt for details, and check out the new "Granite" album skin!

Please note the WallJuke and Splat fruitbox.cfg files have been tweaked for v1.1 bug-fixes, so grab these too if you are using these skins.

Cheers,
Mike

This looks great.

Does it / will it have support for touch screens?

Hi,

fruitbox doesn't support touchscreen at the moment. I will look into adding that (but I guess I'll need to get myself a touchscreen first!)

mabscottsville - to answer your question; when the touchscreen support goes in, I will also add a way of re-defining the keyboard keys as well; this won't involve controller inputs, but presumably this will help you with your controller input control?

Cheers,
Mike
