Today I tried to install Saiyato plugin for LCD but got stuck; when I run “volumio plugin install” first time automatically started to install volumio-plugin. After that I run again “volumio plugin install” and follow normal steps but at the end I don’t have a command prompt. I tried Ctrl+C and run again “volumio plugin install” but I have to follow again last steps and again got stuck.
Please , can somebody help me with that and also to install LCD plugin ?
I have to return at this problem, if somebody can help.
Not the same plugin but similar install working process github.com/balbuze/volumio-plug … otconnect2
Thank you for your answer , I try to do it like this but it doesn’t work ( maybe because I’m novice with Linux and Github and don’t know how to do it , you can see what I try in next pictures). First I have wget error ; I downloaded the zip file and copy it ( with winscp ) to RPi. After successful unpack when I try to install the plugin a new error appeared ( also in the pictures below ).
After connecting to Volumio via ssh try the following:
- Download the plugin package
- Create a directory for unzipping the plugin package
- Unzip the plugin package to the newly created directory
miniunzip volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip -d volumio-hd44780-plugin
- Change into the directory with the unzipped files
- Install the plugin
volumio plugin install
Thank you gvolt ! Grazie! Danke!
It’s ok now
Hi friends !Need help and your hint.
- How to install Brutefir plugin on RASPi simply using WinSCP access ?
- I want to install KODI ,BRUTEFIR and Squeezelite identically to RASPi on x86/64 Volumio. Is it possible ?
This is possible, but not by using the plugins:
- Kodi only installs on arm platforms, unless you can provide a working ppa for x86/x64
- Squeezelite too only has support for arm right now
I did everything as described above (GVOLT)
instalation was successful
unfortunately the following appears in the volumio browser:
This plugin is failing to start. Please install updated version, or contact plugin developer
and under settings:
No configuration available
Rasperra 3B + Volumio 2.457 + hd44780 display + I2c
sudo i2cdetect -y 1 is port 27 visible
does anyone have the same problem? or any solution to this situation?
That’s because the node modules need to be incorporated. You need to install the build-essential package and run npm i in the plugin directory prior to installation.
I am new to this type of thing but what does that mean
You need to install the build-essential package and run npm i in the plugin directory prior to installation.
I have tried to install this plugin and have had no luck as it tries to install and inevitably says there is no package or no modules found.
where is there a reliable place to download this plugin from?
where or what is the build essential package? and is it installed the same way.
I did the folowing to install your plugin:
[code]$ sudo i2cdetect -y 1
$ wget https://github.com/Saiyato/volumio-hd44780-plugin/raw/master/volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip
$ mkdir volumio-hd44780-plugin
$ miniunzip volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip -d volumio-hd44780-plugin
$ cd volumio-hd44780-plugin
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install apt-utils
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ npm install
$ volumio plugin install[/code]
The plugin is installed. Welcome message is shown on display, but the MPD info is not shown if playing. Enable MPCLCD is set to On.
If I try to start mpdlcd I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/local/bin/mpdlcd”, line 7, in
from mpdlcd import cli
File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mpdlcd/cli.py”, line 5, in
ImportError: No module named configparser
Can you tell me how to corect this error? Many thanks for this great plugin.
SOLVED: Had to install Python 3:
$ sudo apt install python3
$ sudo apt install python3-pip
$ sudo apt install python-mpd
$ sudo pip3 install mpdlcd
Thanks for your sharing, so I can finish my DAC project, all I needed was the LCD screen working on the front cover of the device.
My sincere thanks
P.S. when It’s working I’ll post it here for you to see
