Unfortunately, the python client is very old, unmaintained, and not very reliable. I'm guessing there's some timeout going on internally due to it taking a long time to download images, especially if you change your layouts frequently. I've been finding that I never get my layouts refreshed while running on my RPi 1. I always have to reboot to get any updates.

I installed Xibo Client 1.6.0-rc2 (from Balmond image) on my Raspberry Pi 2 B. It's working well, but when I enter the command to starts the client ("./run.sh"), and after the Xibo splashscreen appears, the client doesn't start until i press "i" in the keyboard (at this moment appears the screen of the Xibo Client, with information like ip address, etc), and then press "l". When I press "l", the client starts the communication with the server and downloads the content to display. But if i don't press this buttons, the client waits for my input. It not always happens, but sometimes yes.

Is this normal? How can i tell the client to start automatically when i run "./run.sh"?

Thanks!!
Regards,

Maxi

I tried making this work for two weeks. I was able to get a bootable image with a hybrid of a jessie kernel and wheezy system files. I could get the xibo player to start, but it would only display my first image and then black screen for the rest. Unfortunately the xibo linux client is abandoned with no update or replacement in sight. It does not work on modern distro releases due to its use of old and deprecated AV and browser libraries. I have since given up on xibo and rolled my own very simple digital signage solution that fits all of my needs and runs very nicely on my RPi3 with chromium browser from the 3rd party repos.

I am running this and finally found the site.cfg file.

After the reboot it will not find my hosted server on my network with my Xibo setup. My server never sees the Raspberry.

# Xibo Site Configuration File
# Copy this to site.cfg in the same folder as XiboClient.py

[Main]
# Change to the URL of your Xibo server
xmdsUrl=http://tickets/xibo <-- my XIBO server on my network which works with the Windows client app.

# Change to a random string. Used to generate your client key.
# Must be unique for all your clients
xmdsClientID=raspberry1 <-- my random name to tell me what this one is

# The server key for your Xibo server
xmdsKey=KDPE8o <-- my Key

# How frequently to poll the Xibo server for updates (in seconds)
xmdsUpdateInterval=120

# Require a valid connection to the server for the client to start
# If the server is unavailable or the client is unlicensed, sit
# at the splash screen.
requireXmds=true <-- set to this to make sure it shows its connecting to my server and not the internal server.

# Width of the Xibo Client window to use (or screen width if fullscreen)
width=1920

# Height of the Xibo Client window to use (or screen width if fullscreen)
height=1024

# Run fullscreen? Can be true or false. Case sensitive.
fullscreen=false

Any ideas?

Hello, I successfully running the Xibo client image to my RPi3.

How to make it run on RPi3:

Make an sd card with rasbian os (eg wheezy)
Backup the boot partition (copy it e.g. to your desktop)
Make an sd card with Xibo 1.6 RPi 2 image
Delete the boot partition and copy/paste inside it the files from 2nd step
Put the sd card to RPi3 and power it on
Connect RPi with internet (ethernet connection)
Download PuTTY (the SSH and Telnet client itself) and make an SSH connection with your RPi. (you need to find the IP of it, see here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... address.md
Username pi Password raspberry
Execute:
* sudo apt-get update
* sudo apt-get upgrade
* sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
* sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
* sudo apt-get clean
Restart
Correct time zone: sudo raspi-config

Done!

Hello, michalis88, good afternoon.
I would like your help on installing Xibo in raspberry PI3. I saw you posted on the forum that could. I'm following in his footsteps but could not succeed.
It would bother to record a video showing how to get? Please!
I thank you and big hug!

Hi! Try this:

-Burn the "Xibo for Raspberry Pi 2" image file to sd card
-Open the boot partition in your computer, delete everything, and copy-paste the contents files from zip file that you will find below
-Put the sd card to your RPi3 and power it up

Then follow the steps from my previous post.

Hello, I am in the same case, impossible to run the image on the RPI3 ...
Can you re-upload the boot partition or an image for the RPI3?

Thank you very much for your help !

Michalis88,
I did as you said.
I used win32diskImager and recorded the Xibo16-RPI2 image in SD.
As soon as it finished, I opened the SD and deleted all the files and pasted the files you sent (boot.RPI3).
When I put the SD in the PI3, it starts, locks the keyboard and mouse and begins to pass random images.
It gives me no chance to change anything.
What am I doing wrong?
Can you help me?
Thank you very much.

I downloaded the image that I sent and installed in PI3 and it was able to start.
But I can not get it to sync with the server!
What do I need to do?
Would you put here a step by step summary?
Please!
Thank you
