Installing wooble on your OSD

This page details installing the wooble web interface on your Neuros OSD. Commands in the boxes should be typed into a telnet session to the OSD.

Upgrading from wooble 1.0

If you previously installed the first version of wooble using Lpkg then follow these steps.

Firstly you need to grab a new version of Lpkg, which fixes a bug regarding upgrades:

cd /path/to/your/osdroot
. ./setup.sh        # (that is, two dots at the start, separated by a space)
lpkg update
lpkg install wget
wget http://matthewwild.co.uk/projects/Neuros/lpkg/lpkg1.1.lpkg
tar xf lpkg1.1.lpkg

To upgrade to the latest wooble, simply:

lpkg upgrade

Installing wooble (for new users)

The easiest way of installing wooble is by using Lpkg, a program that will help you install and manage various programs (packages) on your OSD.

Create a directory on your OSD, this directory will be used to store all programs that you choose to install. I refer to it from now on as osdroot.

Download Lpkg from http://matthewwild.co.uk/projects/Neuros/lpkg/lpkg1.1.lpkg and put it in your osdroot.

cd /path/to/your/osdroot
tar xf lpkg1.1.lpkg
. ./setup.sh   # (that is 2 dots at the start, separated by a space. You need to do this every time you want to use Lpkg, when you are in osdroot)
lpkg addfeed http://matthewwild.co.uk/projects/Neuros/packages.lpf
lpkg refresh
lpkg install wooble

Starting wooble

To start wooble:

lpkg control luaetta start

Visit http://<IP address of your OSD>/ in your browser's address bar to see it in action!

:!: Don't forget to set a username and password on the configuration page, as well as some phrase to be used to protect your media files.

Staying up to date

To make sure you have the latest version of wooble:

cd /path/to/your/osdroot
. ./setup.sh
lpkg refresh
lpkg upgrade

iPhone support

If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch then you can install wooble_iphone, which adds an interface specially for those devices:

lpkg install wooble_iphone
