Hey
I've installed the latest version today on RPi 3 (RuneAudio_rpi2_rp3_0.4-beta_20160321_2GB.img) I'm also missing the "power off" feature in the turn off menu :?

cheers

I am running Rune 0.4b and the screensaver feature doesn't work on the LCD 7". The screen turns off on manual command from the Menu, but the screensaver doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

Also, the buttons and text in Chromium are too small to be useful. I found instructions for changing the defaults for Miduri. How do I make the changes on Chromium?

Thank you.

Hi AlleyCat,

Any reply?


try this :

Adjust the code in /root/.xinitrc

Code: Select all
xset -dpms


to

Code: Select all
xset dpms 0 0 600


It will shut down the display after 10 minutes of inactivity. It will switch back on immediately when touching the display.

- Get access to the console:
Use SSH from your PC
    If you are not familiar with SSH read this for Windows or this for Linux/MacOS
    The default login for RuneAudio is "root" with the password "rune" (without quotes).

- Use sftp to access files on Rune Audio:
Get WinSCP from here and install it.
When it opens setup the following:
- Session
File Protocol: SCP
Host name: The IP address of your Raspberry Pi
User name: root
Password: rune

That's it, connect and you can transfer files just by dragging and dropping.

Hi

I've recently just bought the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, it's the first time i've had anything like this so looking forward to having a play.

My last attempt to use anything like Rune was the Vortexbox software about 6 years ago. I found it worked well but i struggled when it came to making changes on a script line basis.

I'd ideally like this unit to run in the same style as the old Squeezebox touch. How easy is that to implement ontop of the base software? I've scrolled back a few pages and see lots of lengthy code text boxes and wonder if it's going to be beyond me!

Frank,

Thank you. I confirm it works and the screen goes into a screensaver.
