are you running the correct version
i.e what type of raspberry pi
1, 2 or 3 model
and so which version of consolewd have you downloaded and tried to run

Yes, I am on Pi 3.....as regards what version of consolewd I am on...I downloaded from the link in Wim´s How To......I am now thinking that maybe that like was not to the most up to date version, as I had assumed!!

Found the latest version...eventually....could we not have a link button or something? The instructions in the readme.txt are wrong.

Just downloaded the WD display for Linux GUI 64 but it file format is not recognised by my pi......... /home/pi/Downloads/weatherdisplay.tar.gz - Archive format is not recognised......weird as it had no problem downloading and installing WD for Linux console 64 bit?!?!?

I presume that the only way one can check if the setup is working (for the console version) is by looking at what it FTP's to your website?.....as there is no GUI....is this correct?

the 64 bit GUI version is not for the PI
consolewd is (correct version (one for pi1 /2 and one for pi3)

that should work
(it works for others)
(after you copy the files in the deploy folder to /usr/local/ and /usr/lib/)
and then run it as
sudo ./consolewd

Yes, that does work....I have not attached the ENVOY yet...but, as I am used to the GUI version, when I attache the ENVOY, how will I be able to read the output?
