I’ve been playing around with Volumio for a while but only used Volumio x86. Old x86/x64 hardware is easy to come by and mostly free compared to crazy amounts of money for a RPi just to run volumio.
My question is, is it possible to get PeppyMeter running on an x86 platform? Has anyone successfully done it? I looked all over the internet and I only found one short youtube video with no explanation showing an x86 laptop with peppy meter running. I’ve tried myself several times and never got it to work. Should I give up since it’s not possible?
I’m running the latest version of Volumio on a x86 platform with a 1920x480 touch screen. I got as far as the attached picture. I installed the peppymeter plugin, enabled it and configured it but I get an error message when playing music and the screensaver never kicks in.
Let me know if you’ve seen it working under such platform or if you have any tips on how to proceed further.
