WD for Linux / Re: New WD 64Bit Linux fails to start.
« Last post by Weather Display on Today at 02:49:28 AM »
OK
I installed Suse on my Virtual Box
I had to do the sym link to libcurl-gnutls

and I had to install libusb-4
and then WD would run not as root
after selecting the language, the problem then is that the nag screen is behind the main screen
so just move the main screen to the side

then you need to set the permission on the serial port:
sudo chmod 666 /dev/ttyUSB0

and it works :)

also restart WD to fix the colour of the dial
update: download again, now the nag screen does not show up straight away

also sudu is needed to be able to open a com port (same case for consolewd  this has always been a requirement)
unless you do a chmod permissions on the serial port and maybe on the ~/Documents/wdisplay/ folder

if you go to control panel
 internet file creation and uploads
then click on set
for the file #29, 2nd tab
you will see its set to be created every 5 minutes
click on every hour

instead

same for file #31 and 32 (set a one time only i.e daily)
do the same for the upload times

easy

They showed as 1 minute.  Regardless I set them to 1 hour.  I hit save and ok

When I come back in they still show 1 minute but when I click on set they show hourly

Hope that did the trick.. Thanks for being patient with me

Oh for the sun/moon time zone would i be +4  (i'm west of UTC by 4 hours)

Thanks

In your last two responses you mentioned I have it set to every 5 minutes (moon and something else - assuming testtags maybe)

I'm sorry but what is every 5 mins and what do I need to change

Also for the time zone in sun/moon - i am west so would that be +4 (is it from UTC)?

If you could please tell me what screens to change and what items, i would be happy to do so

Sorry for sounding dumb about this

similar for extra moon and moon icon
you have that set to be created and uploaded every 5 minutes
and yet the moon info is only going to change daily
so change that to be updated/uploaded daily only

and I see you have that set to be created and uploaded every 5 minutes
that is over kill
the live data comes from the clientraw.txt file
that testtag file takes alot of processing

the live data comes from the clientraw file
the rest of the info only changes less often , so you really only need to have that file updated and uploaded say every hour
try that too (i.e the special file conversion)
