OP kann nicht aktualisiert werden. Wenn ich auf den Button klicke, passiert nichts. Kann ich den Prozess von der Konsole aus starten?

Rainbow Smart Fuses / Switches
Posted by: PiXLHH - Yesterday, 01:32 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

Hi OP-Community,

I'm at a point where I'd like to replace my classic switch and fuse panel with something smarter. I'd still like to keep (soft) switches there, but it should be also possible to switch everything via SignalK / RasPi. Are there any cheap smart fuses that monitor current and state and send the data via CAN/N2K, I2C, 1wire, SPI, ... to the RasPi?
Is there something like that in the home automation field, maybe realized with arduinos?


  [SOLVED] VNC refusing connection on 0.13
Posted by: JD1 - Yesterday, 10:21 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (9)

Was anything changed on the VNC server in ver 0.13? I just upgraded and get a message that the host refused connection. This was working fine immediately prior to the upgrade. The pi is running - dashboard and editor are working fine.
I should add that my pi is headless. Everything is done via VNC and I am up the creek with no means of locomotion at the moment Sad

  Data from NMEA Multiplexer to OpenCpn
Posted by: aaltje - 07-18-2017, 03:47 PM - Forum: How do I...? - No Replies


I'm using Openplotter 0.12. right now and it turns out to work fine.
There is one thing I can't understand so far.
My echosounder is sending NMEA sentences to OpenPlotter and I see them with the diagnostic tool.
When I open the dashboard of OpenCPN the display for water depth is empty.
As per my understanding OpenCPN is fed by the multiplexer. So it should be there.
How can I make the waterdepth visible?

  Get Sailgauge working?
Posted by: Saqqara - 07-18-2017, 11:30 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (1)

Is SignalK Sailgauge broken for everyone or just me? Are there any configuration changes I need to make?

I have noticed Sailgauge now appears twice under signalk apps; maybe importing a legacy one from old settings? Neither work.

I have wind, speed over ground working in Signal K Instruments app.

I've tried accessing it from another device on the network to no avail.

Do I need to configure the URL and port somewhere? Unlike some of the other SignalK apps there's no way to specify on the page itself.

  Enable Wifi on OpenPlotter OS on Pi3
Posted by: BMMRO - 07-16-2017, 11:36 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (2)

I am currently setting up OpenCPN on a rapberry Pi 3 with OpenPlotter OS. Ideally i want to be able to connect the Pi to the WiFi network, but the option is not there on OpenPlotter. It shows WiFi management not available. Is there anyway to enable this through a command terminal? Thankyou!!

  Install openPlotter to a USB pen drive (RP3)
Posted by: rexlee - 07-16-2017, 02:09 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (3)

Hi all,
I have been RP3 booting Raspbian from a USB pendrive (without any SD card installed). That was pretty straight forward. I just copied the Raspbian image to a USB pendrive & it booted.
However, I have not been able to achieve this with the openPlotter NOOBS distribution, after trying lots of things.
Has anyone tried this and had it working?
Is it possible to have a distribution of an  openPlotter.img which can be copied directly to SD or USB.

I have a MPU9255 and running OP 0.12.0

I can add the device, calibrate it and restart the sensors, but no output on the diagnostic tool

I have run a separate python script with extracts data from the sensor ok

Any thoughts?


  Pi refuses connection for Node Red and Dahboard
Posted by: JD1 - 07-14-2017, 03:11 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

I am not sure if I somehow managed to screw something up or not but I am starting to sweat a bit ....
I can reboot my pi, I can get into it via VNC, I can see the SignalK diagnostic page. I can go to all the OpenPlotter tabs and things 'seem' to work right. If I go to the signalK tab and click on 'show signal k tools', I get the expected web page but the tab 'Node Red' tells me the server is refusing connection, the Dashboard gives me a blank page and freeboard gives me a refused connection error as well.
The other thing I noticed is that on reboot, a 'tool' I added to the 'Tools' menu doesn't start automatically (BMV700 battery monitor code) but runs fine if I start it manually.
I did have a situation where, when Node Red still ran, it reported a discrepancy with the node red flows between a remote browser and the local page (???) and it asked me if I wanted to merge the two. I never answered the question and eventually rebooted and Node Red did not come back up.

Any ideas ?

Ok, figured out how to start NodeRed manually and I get this:

pi@openplotter:~ $ node-red
Error loading settings file: /home/pi/.node-red/settings.js
functionGlobalContext: {
SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier
at createScript (vm.js:56:10)

at require (internal/module.js:20:19)
at Object.<anonymous> (/usr/lib/node_modules/node-red/red.js:115:20)
pi@openplotter:~ $ ^C

I think this is the section of settings.js that it objects to:

// Anything in this hash is globally available to all functions.
// It is accessed as context.global.
// eg:
// functionGlobalContext: { os:require('os') }
// can be accessed in a function block as:
// context.global.os

functionGlobalContext: {
// os:require('os'),
// octalbonescript:require('octalbonescript'),
// jfive:require("johnny-five"),
// j5board:require("johnny-five").Board({repl:false})

I have no clue why .....
