open a terminal
type:
tar xzf 8192eu-4.1.13-v7-826.tar.gz
./install.sh

and that's all. Reset and your wifi dongle will work. The files used to the installation should have been auto-destroyed. Next OpenPlotter release will be RTL8192EU compatible (if I do not forgot again )

..and never mind, remember that all of you are who are helping the project. It is a matter of universal balance
Thank you very much, worked perfectly :-)

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hi - can I add a request please?

Would it be possible to have a switch either as an input or output, available as a trigger or and action? For instance, when an input gpio pin goes high from a PIR sensor then another pin gets set high to sound a buzzer?

Another nice touch would be the ability to edit an existing trigger/action by double clicking on it.

Might be on your list already.
---
Otherwise all good here, I've had a Pi 2 running openplotter for days without a glitch. Using Fldigi to decode navtex and receive weatherfaxes from a ham radio.
Also got a old Pi model B to work as an access point/ router headless with 2 wifi dongles, which might be a really useful use for the Zero.

Of course, actually I am about to finish the implementation of 2 outputs
Combining inputs and outputs in the same interface is really dangerous and without the appropriate hardware protection you can easily fry your raspberry, so I decided to separate inputs and outputs. We will be able to use not only leds and buzzers but relays and interact with all the instruments on board turning on/off radios, fridges, navigation lights...

Yes but I was lazy and so excited with the new features...

Really? What hardware are you using and how is your exact procedure and setting? it might be installed on openplotter core.

Re: OpenPlotter project

I was just playing with the WiFi AP feature of OpenPlotter. By adding a line to OpenPlotter.py (at line 202):

self.available_share.append('usb0')

I was able to tether my Android phone to the Pi and then share that internet connection through the Access Point. Seemed useful to me.

So far its the Pi with usb into a signalink attached to an Icom 7000 ham radio.

Fldigi was loaded just by sudo apt-get fldigi.

The older Pi's didn't have enough grunt to do the processing but the Pi2 seems fine. PSK31 works fine as well, transmit & receive.


I have a fun cube pro plus as well, it would be great to get that working, save loads of power not having to have the ham radio on to receive wfax & navtex. I haven't given it a go yet, isn't GNU radio on openplotter already? Google brings up a some stories of problem with ALSA. I'll have a play soon.

Was that with just one wifi adapter plugged into the Pi? Sounds interesting.

Re: OpenPlotter project

I have read about people getting weather fax and noaa weather images via SDR but it seems like the antennas are very different from AIS.

Yes. I was able to use my phone to supply internet to the Pi through USB and then use the WiFi USB dongle to supply both OpenCPN and OpenPlotter info PLUS internet to another device (computer, tablet, etc)

OK, thanks. I usually let the phone be it's own access point onboard but handy to know.

One thing though, my win7 laptop doesn't seem to want to connect to the Pi access point *unless* the Pi is passing through internet access as well.
Seems fine on android, don't think I've checked linux yet.

Re: OpenPlotter project

Added 4 GPIO outputs. To update do as usual:

cd
cd .config
rm -rf openplotter/
git clone https://github.com/sailoog/openplotter.git

Please be careful if you do not know well what you are doing, YOU CAN DAMAGE YOUR RASPBERRY.

If you set a GPIO pin as output and you have connected a normal switch and it is closed, you will fry this pin an maybe the Pi.
If you set a GPIO pin as output and you have connected a device/circuit which try to draw more than 16mA, you will fry something too.

Wait for the documentation to be ready if you are no sure.

I am in a hurry now I hope to be able to answer on Monday.

Thanks!

Re: OpenPlotter project

Anyone making a IMU and or a Pressure/Temperature sensor?
Thx
Dave

I don't see one in Sailoog's store, so I will say:

I purchased one for about $10.50 US, and slow shipping, from Ebay, by searching:

10DOF L3GD20 LSM303D BMP180 Gyro Accelerometer Compass Altimeter For Arduino

Openplotter recognized it right away by simply turning it on in the Sensors tab. This IMU includes Barometer and Air Temperature. I believe this is a copy of an Adafruit GY-88.

I found this at Dealextreme, seems very much the same as this from Adafruit...

Haven't found the guts to fire up the solder iron yet, but am kind of ready now :-)

Care to share which pins are needed and to where, to get this running?
How do you mount it - just close/at the Pi, or with a longer wire so you can get it away from electric/magnetic disturbance?

Re: OpenPlotter project

Thanks, but I did not see a wiring diagram for either one? How do you plug them in?
