    Hey there!

    Yes, you can start Rise Player from terminal! The file you'll want to run is start.sh from the rvplayer/scripts folder. The command you run will look something like this, ./rvplayer/scripts/start.sh

     

    As a side note, feel free to let us know what you're doing with your Digital Signage running on Raspberry Pi and how it's doing! We're always eager to hear what's going on with our customers and get an idea on how we can improve.

    That opened the installer, but I looked into the "Start Rise Vision Player" shortcut and found a "--unattended" flag. Using that in combination with what you provided is exactly what I needed, thank you!

    Ah, right! Sorry about that! I always forget about the flag. It's not often we have users opening Installer/Player from the command line :)

    I'm trying to do this as well, but when I run start.sh I get the error 

         line 2: notify-send: command not found

    If I remove line 2 from the start.sh file then nothing happens

    As a side note, the reason I'm trying to do this is that I want to periodically have the player restart via chron job due to the rss feed stopping at random times.

    Hi Gerry,

    The notify-send application is part of the notify-osd package.  It sounds like the package isn't installed on your media player.  Check out this thread on the subject.

    You should be able to install the required package with sudo apt-get install notify-osd.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Patrick

    I installed the package as suggested. It seems to have installed just fine, but I get the same results. One other thing I noticed is that if I run either start.sh or restart.sh the player stops (if it is already running) but it does not restart even as I get that error message.

    Hi Gerry,

    I'd like to take a closer look if possible.  I've gone ahead and opened a ticket for you.  You should receive the details in your email.

    Cheers,

    Patrick
