[RELEASE] Official XBMC boblight Addon
(2012-03-29, 07:16)FocalFury Wrote: OK SO I HAVE PROGRESS!!!
ALL LED STRANDS light up red blue green denoting a successful upload of the arduino code.

I started from scratch...new XBMC install....new boblight download...everything
however I'm missing something probably small and I can't remember how to fix this part....
when I start boblightd I get this Error....however it does connect successfully it says

ERROR: unable to make directory /home/Dan/.boblight/:
No such file or directory exists
after that though it connects and goes on its merry way....when I start XBMC it says it is succesfully connected to boblight but there is no light output that I would expect...
ideas

Thank you all for your continued help, I've spent more time on this than I feel I should have had to and I'm really thankful for the help that has been provided

boblightd wants to write a logfile in the home directory from the user it runs as, but it can't make the file, nothing to worry about.

I have an Adalight setup (50leds, Arduino Uno) like some other people in this forum. It works pretty well with that Lightpack software but those who are able to run boblight prefer boblight. I want that too.

In my case, the com-port seems to be correct but I don't know if I should ignore the first error message or not. Using /dev/ttyS0 isn't working either. Same error message. If I change the com-port I'll get "No such file or directory", so it's not the port. It's really com1 btw.

Any of the boblight windows users here, who can give me some help?


Here is my boblight.conf setup:
Code:
#config file for adalight from http://www.ladyada.net/make/adalight/

and so on...

Windows command shell

I've seen that before, apparently if you use a different program first to open the com port, and then open it with boblightd it works ok, I suspect it's a problem in cygwin.
