Local web UI on Volumio 2 for RPI

Postby fertchen » Thu Jan 16 2020 13:46

Hi,
I have found confliciting information regarding this. So i'll jsut ask here:

Is it possible to activate the local web UI on Volumio 2 for Raspberry Pi?

I thought it was part of the product and after installing it on a small x86 machine I went ahead to my RPi 3 just to see there is no local UI. I need one, though. Since Kodi runs quite nicely on the machine I see no reason why there should be not enough brainpower in the little machine.

Is there a simple way to activate the local UI or is it simply not there? Are there any alternatives?

Thanks, but that does not appear to work. I have installed the plugin and rebooted. I still only get the console.

Just to confirm: Is it this one http://www.kumantech.com/kuman-7quot-tft-lcd-capacitive-touch-screen-hdmi-1024600-for-raspberry-pi-3-2-model-b-rpi-1-b-a-bb-black-pc-sc7b_p0024.html?

In a first step please post the results of
Code: Select all
cat /boot/config.txt
,
Code: Select all
cat /boot/userconfig.txt
and
Code: Select all
systemctl status -l volumio-kiosk


Please provide some information if you have installed software for the display and what it was in detail.

Thank you for your reply. It is in fact this model:
https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01FFA ... UTF8&psc=1

I have not installed anything but the Volumio image and, after you suggested to do so, the touchscreen plugin.

Here's the requested output:
cat /boot/config.txt:
IMG_20200117_110249.jpg
IMG_20200117_110249.jpg (197.96 KiB) Viewed 134 times


systemctl status -l volumio-kiosk
IMG_20200117_110552.jpg
IMG_20200117_110552.jpg (165.85 KiB) Viewed 134 times


userconfig.txt appears to be empty except for one comment.

Ok, please add the following lines to your /boot/userconfig.txt:
Code: Select all
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=1
hdmi_mode=87
hdmi_cvt 1024 600 60 6 0 0 0
and reboot.

Still no luck. Again it just boots into the console, asking for user/pass.

Did you enable the touchscreen plugin? From what I see it's not enabled
