Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

Try to run command 'find / -name LCDd.conf' [edited] but you started with command '/usr/local/bin/LCDd -c /usr/local/etc/LCDd.conf -d hd44780 -s true'? so it doesn't matter... Just try to repleace LCDd.conf with mine ;] 2 LCDd.conf files as above. which one s...

Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrqSMe37 ... e=youtu.be

it was another command that i posted earlier that displayed the cpu and mem information.

this is the display after starting LCDd without further command. so it was LCDd sending the cpu mem information.

any ideas on the ignore stuff?

Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

nope. so my other theory was right. LCDd isnt starting up at boot. as per this message According to your make install output, LCDd is installed here: /usr/bin/install -c LCDd '/usr/local/sbin' As I said, I'm not familiar with this software so can't offer much more help. im not to sure where to run t...

Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

no because telnets not installed as best i can tell. however, /usr/local/bin/LCDd -f -c /usr/local/etc/LCDd.conf does get an output from it, cpu, memory information and the like. so its communicating with the screen. im a little reluctant to install to many packages over this as it took 4 days to ge...

Re: LCDproc + Raspbmc (xbmc)

i pm'd the author asking if he can take a look here. i have a feeling its something to do with the raspbmc settings. when you go into settings the ONLY thing on the gui about lcd is under video output which is enable lcd/vdf but no options for changing drivers or anything. its literally an enable ch...
