Re: Jivelite on Joggler

IIRC, yes. In fact, yes, it must do if I was using xset. That shouldn't be the only way to power down that backlight though... surely. 8-) You're probably right. I've not managed to make vbetool do anything on the Joggler, but setterm looks promising. I can blank the screen from the command line if...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

A couple of questions for Andy. I've got to the stage where everything runs, and I've added an applet to control a local instance of Squeezelite. In the Jivelite on a Joggler thread on the Squeezebox forum I've posted links to images for an internal version and an external USB version. They're just ...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

Got there in the end. Despite building libSDL with TSLIB support, Jivelite was building with an old version of SDL. Fixed that with Ralphy's help, and now Jivelite is working properly with TSLIB and without X. I've set it to run at boot, and it seems to work properly. Instructions posted on the Sque...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

Progress of sorts. If I remove the SDL_MOUSEDEV environment variable altogether, then the mouse behaves less erratically, and in fact seems to be scaled down by half (e.g. if I touch the bottom right corner the mouse pointer moves to the middle of the screen). Here's the odd bit though - if I touch ...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

@Roobarb When you created the Squeezeplay installations, did you use just SDL/TSLIB, or do you run it under X somehow? If you used SDL/TSLIB only, can you divulge which environment variables you specified for all the TSLIB and SDL configuration? I'm currently using export TSLIB_FBDEVICE=/dev/fb0 exp...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

I use crontab to autostart Jivelite and it just starts into the full jivelite screen Does it get beyond the splash screen? Is that under X? I've got the autostart thing working with the /etc/profile.d/ approach, and I've compiled SDL with tslib support, with the aim of eventually building JiveLite ...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

I also tinkered with the other bit of advice on that page, to change the default login user from 'root' to 'joggler'. That also works nicely, but I haven't been able to combine both steps yet because if the default user is 'joggler' then Jivelite wants joggler's password to run at boot. I think tha...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

This site seems to have the answer to the autostart thing. I made a script file in /etc/profile.d/ with the contents: if [ "$(tty)" = "/dev/tty1" ]; then TSLIB_FBDEVICE=/dev/fb0 TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event2 TSLIB_CALIBFILE=/etc/pointercal TSLIB_CONFFILE=/etc/ts.conf TSLIB_PLUGINDIR=/usr/local/l...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

Thanks for the example file - I'll have a look at that. And thanks for checking re the shebang - yes, it was there, and the script was executable, and I was able to start Jivelite successfully by running that script from the command line. I suspect the autostart issue may have something to do with X...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

Thanks, yes, that seems to be the way to do it in Bionic. I'm nearly there - my standalone 'startjivelite.sh' script works from the command line, and I've made a 'startjivelite.service' that calls that script, and it seems to be trying to run it at boot - I can see the screen go blank for a moment a...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

I'm sure I'll be back with more questions, but if someone could get me past these first few issues I'd be very grateful. As promised - some more basic questions. Firstly, thanks for the 8GB USB version. I've got this working as a build environment, and have managed to build and run Jivelite, so I c...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

Only way to learn. Can't guarantee I'll be quick, but I'll try to keep bobbing in, see how things are going! Thank you, for your support and your builds. On the Squeezebox forum Ralphy has given some pointers on compiling Jivelite too, and has offered to help, so if we can't do it with all this sup...

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

I did some testing, by copying over my built version of Jivelite to the new Bionic install. It baulked instantly because it couldn't find libSDL-1.2.so.0. So unfortunately I've learned that the libraries are needed at run time, and Jivelite can't do without SDL. Shame. Space is going to be an issue.

Re: Jivelite on Joggler

This is marvellous, thank you. It should be very useful in making bespoke builds. I've been having a play this evening, but have hit some snags. Not surprising really, as I'm very new to the Linux world. I do need to build a couple things, and the commands that have worked when booting from the base...
