Seems that I have to allow to download from a unsigned repository?

Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

You're a difficult guy... :mrgreen: Try this:

Code: Select all

wget -q http://download.telldus.com/debian/telldus-public.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -


and run the apt get update again. If not, doing it with this at the end:

Code: Select all

--allow-unauthenticated

Did a fresh install again and then:

Run these from you .zip file
sudo dpkg --ignore-depends=libconfuse1 -i libconfuse-common_3.0+dfsg-2+deb9u1_all.deb
sudo dpkg --ignore-depends=libconfuse1 -i libconfuse1_3.0+dfsg-2+deb9u1_armhf.deb


sudo apt-get install telldus-core libtelldus-core-dev
E: Unable to locate package telldus-core
E: Unable to locate package libtelldus-core-dev


Had to add this to the source list:
sudo sh -c 'echo " deb https://s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/d ... elldus.com unstable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'


sudo apt-get update
E: The repository 'https://s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/d ... elldus.com unstable InRelease' is not signed.

This did not work:
sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys http://download.telldus.se/debian/telldus-public.key

This key worked:
wget -q http://download.telldus.com/debian/telldus-public.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -


sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install -y telldus-core libftdi1

Checked the status:
systemctl status telldusd.service


NOw its up and running :D

EDIT:
Had to stop and start the telldus service to have the sensors showing:

sudo systemctl stop telldusd.service
sudo systemctl start telldusd.service

This is an awful hack. It should really be updated and not use old and possible buggy libraries.

Has anyone seen any fork of telldus software that actually works?

Yeah, awfully dirty, but it works 100 %. My Pi's are in a very busy automation environment, and none of them have skipped a beat in the more than one year I have been running this. And I don't think there is one. Maybe the code is to proprietary for Telldus, and not open? Or it's jkust not interesting for enough people for somebody who actually knows what the hell they are doing to code it?

It is open, and I have compiled it to RPi before. I have been one of that written instruction how you compiled it from source, because telldus only had support for amd64 and i386.

Now it doesn't even work on those. :-(

OK, weird. Still, the method works as long as you use an old enough Buster image and then update, without removing so called "unused packages", which removes too much, so it stops working. I can live with that for my part. But I would sure love a new version of the drivers that didn't require me to jump through those hoops, of course. :mrgreen:
