Use Media live DM140 VFD in Ubuntu (9.10 and up)
« on: 18-February-11, 12:14:36 »

Hi there,

Want to make the VFD work on your Media Live?
It's quite simple.

Install this version of LCDproc:

32bit: https://launchpad.net/~pavkamlc/+archive/ppa/+buildjob/923866/+files/lcdproc_0.5.2-0ubuntu2pavka5_i386.deb

64bit: https://launchpad.net/~pavkamlc/+archive/ppa/+buildjob/923865/+files/lcdproc_0.5.2-0ubuntu2pavka5_amd64.deb

LCDproc that is included in Ubuntu or a newer version do not contain the DM-140 driver that you need.

After installation, nano /etc/init.d/LCDd

Change the DEAMON_OPTS line to: DAEMON_OPTS="-s true -f -c /etc/LCDd.conf -d dm140 -r 5"

Now reboot.
If everything is working your VFD should start working and shows the server part.

To make it show something usefull, simply exacute the command: lcdproc
Now it should display time/load/lan etc information, you can edit that by edtting the lcdproc.conf

This worked for me, oh and best stop apt from trying to update lcdproc else it will stop working.
