[SOLVED] Telldus-core on ArchLinux ARM

Post by MrAshe » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi, I trying to use my TellStick Duo on a Seagate DockStar where i've installed the ARM version of ArchLinux.

First at all, I've builded the version "telldus-core-2.1.0" from the repo but I get the error "Tellstick not found" , i've seen some people who have this error has downgrade to 2.0.4 so that what i've done but now I can't start the telldus deamon:

Code: Select all

[shinux@dockstar /]$ telldusd
-bash: telldusd: command not found
And when I use tdtool same error with bonus (no such option 'deviceNode'):

Code: Select all

[shinux@dockstar /]$ tdtool --on 1
/var/state/telldus-core.conf:1: no such option 'deviceNode'
Turning on device 1, Example device - TellStick not found
There is an ARM version of telldus-core ?

When building version 2.1.0 yourself you must make sure telldusd gets event when plugging in your TellStick. We do this using an udev-rule in our deb-packages.
You should also make sure telldusd has the right permissions to access the usb-device. Please set a user and a group in /etc/tellstick.conf and start telldusd as root.

Easily fixed by:

Code: Select all

$ echo > /var/state/telldus-core.conf

Hi thanks for your reply.

Have re-builded the 2.1 version but I have the same problem.

I can start the telldusd, and it seem to work but when I use tdtool I get "Tellstick not found" again.

I've added the rules to udev using the udev.sh script in the source, nothing more. (and same manually).

Code: Select all

$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/99-tellstick.rules 
KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", BUS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1781", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0c30", NAME="tellstick", GROUP="plugdev"
$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-tellstick.rules 
KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", BUS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1781", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0c30" NAME="tellstick"
$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/05-tellstick.rules 
ID_VENDOR_ID=="1781", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", MODE="664", GROUP="plugdev" RUN+="/usr/local/share/telldus-core/helpers/udev.sh"
ID_VENDOR_ID=="1781", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="remove" RUN+="/usr/local/share/telldus-core/helpers/udev.sh"
And this is lsusb :

Code: Select all

$ sudo lsusb -d 1781: -v

Please set a user and a group in /etc/tellstick.conf
In my /etc/tellstick.conf I have user="nobody" and group="plugdev".

PS: I precise i'm running Linux 3.0

Does this command do anything diffrently?

Code: Select all

$ tdadmin controller connect --vid=0x1781 --pid=0x0c31 --serial=A600JNLF
Try setting user=root and group=root in the config (and restarting telldusd as root) to rule out permission problems.

Thanks a lot :) I'ts working now.
Try setting user=root and group=root in the config (and restarting telldusd as root) to rule out permission problems.
That what i've do and i'm able to run tdtool as root, so i've replaced user="root" by user="myusername" and it's working fine without sudo command.

Thanks for your help.

The permission for tdtool doesn't matter. The setting in /etc/tellstick.conf only affect telldusd.

If you don't start telldusd with sudo the user/group will also be ignored (since telldusd don't have permission to change the user if run by non-root).
