Help with "volumio plugin install"

Hi ,
Today I tried to install Saiyato plugin for LCD but got stuck; when I run “volumio plugin install” first time automatically started to install volumio-plugin. After that I run again “volumio plugin install” and follow normal steps but at the end I don’t have a command prompt. I tried Ctrl+C and run again “volumio plugin install” but I have to follow again last steps and again got stuck.

Please , can somebody help me with that and also to install LCD plugin ?
Thank you

Hi again,

I have to return at this problem, if somebody can help.
Thank you.

Not the same plugin but similar install working process github.com/balbuze/volumio-plug … otconnect2

Thank you for your answer , I try to do it like this but it doesn’t work ( maybe because I’m novice with Linux and Github and don’t know how to do it , you can see what I try in next pictures). First I have wget error ; I downloaded the zip file and copy it ( with winscp ) to RPi. After successful unpack when I try to install the plugin a new error appeared ( also in the pictures below ).

Please help.

After connecting to Volumio via ssh try the following:

  1. Download the plugin package
wget https://github.com/Saiyato/volumio-hd44780-plugin/raw/master/volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip
  1. Create a directory for unzipping the plugin package
mkdir volumio-hd44780-plugin
  1. Unzip the plugin package to the newly created directory
miniunzip volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip -d volumio-hd44780-plugin
  1. Change into the directory with the unzipped files
cd volumio-hd44780-plugin
  1. Install the plugin
volumio plugin install

Thank you gvolt ! Grazie! Danke!

It’s ok now :laughing:

My pleasure! :slight_smile:

Hi friends !Need help and your hint.

  1. How to install Brutefir plugin on RASPi simply using WinSCP access ?
  2. I want to install KODI ,BRUTEFIR and Squeezelite identically to RASPi on x86/64 Volumio. Is it possible ?

This is possible, but not by using the plugins:

  • Kodi only installs on arm platforms, unless you can provide a working ppa for x86/x64
  • Squeezelite too only has support for arm right now

Hello
I did everything as described above (GVOLT)
instalation was successful
unfortunately the following appears in the volumio browser:

HD44780 plugin
This plugin is failing to start. Please install updated version, or contact plugin developer

and under settings:

No configuration available

my equipment:

Rasperra 3B + Volumio 2.457 + hd44780 display + I2c

sudo i2cdetect -y 1 is port 27 visible

does anyone have the same problem? or any solution to this situation?

greetings

That’s because the node modules need to be incorporated. You need to install the build-essential package and run npm i in the plugin directory prior to installation.

I am new to this type of thing but what does that mean
You need to install the build-essential package and run npm i in the plugin directory prior to installation.
I have tried to install this plugin and have had no luck as it tries to install and inevitably says there is no package or no modules found.
where is there a reliable place to download this plugin from?

where or what is the build essential package? and is it installed the same way.
thanks

@Saiyato
I did the folowing to install your plugin:

[code]$ sudo i2cdetect -y 1

$ wget https://github.com/Saiyato/volumio-hd44780-plugin/raw/master/volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip
$ mkdir volumio-hd44780-plugin
$ miniunzip volumio-hd44780-plugin.zip -d volumio-hd44780-plugin
$ cd volumio-hd44780-plugin

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install apt-utils
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ npm install

$ volumio plugin install[/code]

The plugin is installed. Welcome message is shown on display, but the MPD info is not shown if playing. Enable MPCLCD is set to On.
If I try to start mpdlcd I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/local/bin/mpdlcd”, line 7, in
from mpdlcd import cli
File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mpdlcd/cli.py”, line 5, in
import configparser
ImportError: No module named configparser

Can you tell me how to corect this error? Many thanks for this great plugin.

SOLVED: Had to install Python 3:

$ sudo apt install python3
$ sudo apt install python3-pip
$ sudo apt install python-mpd
$ sudo pip3 install mpdlcd
