Topic: chumbydash + USB Photo Widget: solved

hey yall, lovin' my resurrected chumbydash :-D

running the Sony appview theme (yay!) and trying to get the USB Photo Widget working.

I have uploaded the photos.pl script per the instructions but its not being executed by the widget.  The widget itself just shows a black screen with "Loading Filelist.."

Any ideas about this widget? 

thanks,F

Hey yall, well I solved my USB photos problem.

The widget wasn't running the Perl script you upload to the Dash because, drum roll, the webserver isn't started by default on the Dash. 

So I made two changes, I removed the space from the folder name of my photos, and I started the webserver.

Now the old USB Photos widget works great and is cycling through my photos.

My Dash is back, and better than ever.

Thanks y'all!  big_smile

Re: chumbydash + USB Photo Widget: solved

so the usb drive - fat32 2gb acceptable?
put just the two files in the zip on the thumb drive (not in a subdirectory)

boot dash -
I should see control panel? 
mine just boots loads network tries to load widget, then says widget requires script.

please describe what should happen.

oh wooh is me..

Re: chumbydash + USB Photo Widget: solved

"touch" is a command.   just type all that in, after sshing into the unit.

Re: chumbydash + USB Photo Widget: solved

Thanks for the wiki. But Where does one get the photos.pl script? I did a search here and on search engines and did not find the script or does this come preloaded in the Dash?
