Project with PeppyMeter Screensaver Plugin for VOLUMIO v2.9xx and 3.0xx buster


I am trying to put new skins into Peppy player but it is not working , i drag the file’s from left to right and merge the meters.txt from the left to the meters.txt to the right.
I can see the new meters in Peppy but nothing starts like normal in about 20 sec.
Please help

Dear @Biba our friend @Andy_Yong has posted a nice tutorial on You tube for the same

Are you sure you have followed all the steps in the video ?

Yes but in the file on de screen that you can see , it is not the same file as in de video.
The meters.tx that he change are not in a standard Volumio setting, in the 1024 x 600 that i download is not a add file just a meters.txt.
And i merge it with the meters.txt on the right site and i see the skins but no screensaver started.
I replace the meters.txt from the right with de meters.txt from the left and thats nog working also .

Can you send your meter.txt so I can help you take a look?


Hi, will you be able to peppy meter work with 1280 x 480 resolution? Thanks for your hard work.

Peppy meter itself will work, not depended on screen size. However you will not be able to run it in Full screen as there are no templates for 1280*480. The closest is 1280*400

You can always try to create them yourself.

I have got it working, it seems there was a corrupt file, i remove everything en than install it back en now it works great.
Thanx for the message.

I see. I tried using 1280x400 but it is cut off at the bottom. I am using 1280x720, it works with some skins.

How do i create one myself? Is there a guide on how to make one? Thank you.

i gave you the link in my previous reply

oh sorry, i didn’t realize it was a link. Thank you so much. I’ll try to figure it out, i just built my Volumio setup a few days ago, this is all new to me. lol I bought the Eleclab 10.3 inch touch screen 1280x480. now im thinking of just returning it to get the waveshare 7.9.

I received the 7.9 waveshare touchscreen and have everything up and running. How do i install skins for 1280x400? I cant seem to find the custom folder for it. I see all the other custom 1 to 6 folders but not the one for wide (2 channel 1280x400). Thank you.

@WarPath Upload to data/plugins/miscellanea/peppy_screensaver/peppymeter/wide

I have here the download link (wide (1280x400) to the complete file, including custom.

I’m not sure how but I have borked my peppy install. The meters come up but don’t move. I tried a fresh volumio install but still have the same results. Not really sure where to start diagnostics. I’m on 3 installed with the plugin instructions.

did you follow these instructions?

I did the “download as plugin” instructions from post 7. Is this method different?

Running latest version of Volumio and peppymeters is no longer work. Got this error “Failed to open audio output”.

With peppymeter plugin disabled then no problem with playing.

Peppymeter worked before but after update of Volumio it no longer work.

this should be the same…

@Wheaten he buddy can you check if it’s still oke?

Can’t check, no hardware currently available for testing.

in the peppymeter config, how do you have Alsa config set? I have to have it set DSD native just to not have an error
