    Note: this currently works only for the full version, it does not work for a "Lite" rasbian as it (seemly) tries to disable items that are stripped in the Lite versions. Is it possible to add support for the Lite versions?

    Hi Nathan, we only support Jessie with Pixel. Thanks

    Oh no! I have full and all of the dependencies, but I don't get the display ID prompt and step after running ./installer-lnx-armv7l.sh .What could I be doing wrong?

    Figured it out -- couldn't run over ssh/as a headless pi. Had to run at the display...with an actual keyboard.

    How do we restart the service without restarting the pi?

    Thanks!!

    Installed it today on a Pi2 and can't get past the instruction at line 56. Install does not complete after the installation of MS fonts. I am using Pixel and at the display. Any help?

    I am having the same problem as you C Fusco. Any luck?

    It actually doesn't matter if I install the fonts or not. Running Pixel Jessie at the display.

    Not yet. Looking at another display solution.

    Anyone have a solution for when the installation stops at line 56?

    Ariel,

    To confirm, which model of Raspberry Pi are you using? Are you using the latest version of Raspbian? Raspbian Jessie can be downloaded at at 
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/

    Ariel & C Fusco,

    I have confirmed that Rise Player for Pi is supported on Raspberry Pi 3 only. It's likely that if you are running a Raspberry Pi 2, you will see the line 56 error.

    Thanks!

    What is the location of the startup command? I tried the regular locations but cannot find the exact commands to launch the rise player.

    Hey does riseplayer run on the raspberry pi zero W does anyone know?

    Raul,

     

    The target file for Rise Player startup is /home/pi/.local/share/applications/rvplayer-start.desktop.

    brian,

    We haven't done any testing on Pi Zero, but we'd be interested in hearing your results!

    No problem. Chances are it might be under powered. But I ordered a pi 3 just to be safe and a zero W to test. More curiosity than anything 😂

    If it makes any difference, the Pi 3 on my desk runs like a champ! I use it to display a home calendar, family photos, an RSS feed and a countdown Widget. It never stutters!

    Blake,

    I am trying to launch the player via terminal and or cron due to the fact that we sometimes use the device as a kiosk social media wall and at other times a sign using the rv player. Only real way to do this at the time, if we are not on-site, is to reboot and quit the process and have someone launch the process locally.

    Tried almost everything as far as chmod and allowing terminal access to the desktop app and I was wondering what you all would recommend is the best way to accomplish the aforementioned. I am  fairly new to Linux so every day is a great experience learning the vast possibilities. Thanks again.

    I'm sorry to say that the Raspberry pi zero is not strong enough for the rise player. After several installations we gave up. It's probably to slow. Only using Chromium is already hard on the zero...

    Maybe there is a way to simplify the rise player for the rpi zero but it will cost time.

    Thnx, Roel

    Hi Raul,

     

    You may want to ask this question over at the Rise Vision Community. Someone there will likely be able to help you out with this use case.

    Roel,

     

    Thanks for testing that out! I'll make sure to inform our teams that Pi Zero is not recommended.

    I can't run the installer command.  I get "Permission denied".  I tried adding sudo to the beginning, but that did help.  Any thoughts?

    Sounds like you missed the chmod +x command. You need to do that to grant execute permission on the install script to your user.

    Malcolm, thanks for the reply. But I definitely did issue that command. Any other thoughts?

    Has Stretch been tested with the pi installer?

    I just tried it on a new SD card in a Pi3. Latest Raspbian Stretch. Updated all installed packages. Downloaded installer and ran it according to the instructions. Worked without a hitch.

     

    Just doing some testing on how it runs for a period of time without interaction now.

    Malcolm,

    Got it up and running as well and so far so good.

    Installed on Stretch, everything installed great, but the content is appearing in the top left corner instead of full screen. I checked the presentations and the content is definitely supposed to be full screen. Anyone else run into this?

    Hi guys,

     

    I'm not certain what you mean by stretch. Could you create a conversation over on our community with some more details? Perhaps we can get an answer for you there.

     

    Steven,

    Rise Installer should not be run with sudo. It's possible that your user account on the Pi doesn't have the correct permissions to install software. If you're using an account on the OS other than the original admin account named "Pi", try logging in as Pi and installing from there.
