Thanks for the quick response. I'm just re-flashing a recent backup and I'll try again and update you with the result.

I just wanted to say that we've just published a new image for OSE that adds support for the Raspberry Pi Model B 3.

You can find the pre-configured image here:

Thank you! - Works well. Since the Pi3 has built in WLAN, can we get a feature upgrade to, on first boot allow the input of WLAN settings via K/M then reboot and it take off and do its things as normal?

We already have this build into Screenly Pro (but not via keyboard), but I'm not sure if we will port that functionality to Screenly OSE.

Hi, I just flashed the newest version of Screenly OSE and connected through my browser to get my display set up, but I cannot connect to my Pi via SSH with this new version. I tried going into the config and setting it to enable SSH, but I still cannot connect. I receive this message each time: "Network error: Software caused connection abort".

Any assistance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Hmm, not sure. Try logging in using the tty and see what's going on in the logs.

Do updates still require a reboot? Previous updates had a reminder about rebooting when they completed, but I haven't seen that after the last couple updates.

That depends what version you're upgrading from. Once you've upgraded to the more recent version, you'll not need a reboot.

Hi,

any chance of a preview button by each asset which is on display... it would be so useful...

Thanks

It's pretty hard to do for websites, as they are it a) requires a lot of dependencies and b) is a very resource heavy operation.

Screenly OSE -- Occassional White Monitor Screen

Fri Apr 29, 2016 12:27 pm

I've been using Screenly OSE for years to display a HTML web page from my home weather station hosted on my local server. But every so often I get a blank white display.

My two assets are http://192.168.1.100/weather?show=1 and ?show=2 set to 10 seconds each so a fresh page is always displayed. Maybe 6-8 times an hour, one of the assets displays only a white screen once. The white screen is only displayed for 10 seconds until the next asset displays correctly. The next 10 seconds the previously white asset display is normal.

I thought about increasing the duration but that would result in a longer display of the white screen asset.

Running RPi2 with the Screenly OSE image.

Strange. Have you tried upgrading to the latest version? If not, do that first. next, grab the logs and post them here or at Github as an issue.

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

Fri Apr 29, 2016 7:11 pm

I'm on the latest version, and just attempted to upload some new video assets. I am finding that short videos upload fine, but all of the longer (300mb - 400mb) videos are failing to upload about 1/4 of the way through transfer. The Add Asset dialog throws up a "The operation failed. Please reload the page and try again." message. I've previously not had any problem uploading large video assets, and there is 4G Free Space available on this install. Any thoughts?

I finally caught the white screen display in the act. Here is the log entry that appeared at that time.

Re: Screenly OSE -- Digital Signage for the Raspberry Pi

I just want to share my first time experience installing screenly on a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, as I ran into a few hiccups. The installer script errored out on a number of dependencies, so I wanted to list what they were and how I got screenly up and running in case it helps someone else.

I installed on a clean version of Jessie Lite (2016-03-18-raspbian-jessie-lite), after following all the setup instructions on the install page, I needed to perform the following:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install python-dev
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
sudo pip install -U setuptools
mkdir .config
mkdir .config/uzbl
then I was able to issue the install script command and have it run successfully:

Code: Select all

bash <(curl -sL https://www.screenlyapp.com/install-ose.sh)
Hope this help someone.

Great catch, Alan.

While I wasn't able to reproduce this myself, I did push some fixes that should address those edge cases. This is now part of the main installation script. Please note that dist-upgrade shouldn't be required.

Unable to Access the Terminal

Fri May 06, 2016 6:51 pm

Hey!

I just updated Sceenly OSE to the most recent version (2016-04-20) and I am no longer able to access the terminal. I tried CTRL+ALT+F1 and this no longer works. Is there a different key combination that is required at this point?

Thanks so much!

Hmm. The new image is based on Jessie. We have not made any changes in regards to this. I'm able to access my devices using the keyboard just fine. Maybe try a with a different keyboard and see if makes a difference.

Hmm, my best guess would be that this is a locale issue. The easiest solution would be to switch locale to English.

The more cumbersome solution would be to add custom handling for various locales, but that would require a fair amount of work.
