    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    Hi Xqua,

    I've installed pyAlienFX on Arch Linux (running Gnome) and am having issues I was hoping you could help with.

    1) When I open pyAlienFX from the terminal, the UI opens up as a very wide window, almost 2x the width of my monitor. This isn't too big of a deal because I can still work with it, just wondering if it's a problem on my end. Also at start I see the following in the terminal output:

    (gksu:7094): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",

    (pyAlienFX.py:7105): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",


    Initializing Driver ...
    Comnputer M14XR1 found ! Loading the parameters ...
    Initializing Controller ...
    the Deamon is disconnected ...
    Trying to load the driver manually

    Loading : ./Profiles/2013.cfg
    SPEED = 65280
    Initializing Interface ...
    /opt/pyAlienFX/pyAlienFX.py:123: GtkWarning: Can't pass in construct-only parameters to cancel_button
    self.gtk_AlienFX_Main.add_from_file('./glade/AlienFXMain.glade')
    /opt/pyAlienFX/pyAlienFX.py:123: GtkWarning: Can't pass in construct-only parameters to ok_button
    self.gtk_AlienFX_Main.add_from_file('./glade/AlienFXMain.glade')


    Would the bolded messages be preventing functionality?

    2.) The program just doesn't seem to be doing what it's supposed to. I can kind of change colors in the UI, but clicking Save or "Lights On" from the menu doesn't do anything (produces a USB related error in the console):

    .Sending : Get Status
    Packet : 02 06 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

    The output of lsusb:

    I guess my assumption is all the problems are related to it not being able to connect properly to the device. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    That issue is known and I have to create a package for Arch Linux user specifically !

    Meanwhile you can follolw the instructions here :

    http://code.google.com/p/pyalienfx/issues/detail?id=8

    - copy libusb-1.0.so.0 from an ubuntu installation (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu on my ubuntu installation) - in root, I have launched : LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/copy/of/ubuntu/lib/libusb-1.0.so.0 pyAlienFX


    Thanks for using pyAlienFX

    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    Hey Guys,

    I am trying to get this working on my M17x R4 but when I launch the pyAlienFX app I get the following --

    Initializing Driver ...
    Comnputer M17XR3 found ! Loading the parameters ...
    Initializing Controller ...
    the Deamon is disconnected ...
    Trying to load the driver manually
    Loading : ./Profiles/Default.cfg
    SPEED = 65280
    Check Deamon
    Check Deamon

    I tried running the app with -h, --help etc but it doesn't seem to be implemented. Can someone tell me how to solve this issue?

    I never got pyAlienFx to work on my mx14, but I don't really need it as I really do like it just staying as the light blue.

    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    I like the blue as well, but it'd be nice to be able to turn some of the bling off sometimes .

    Can someone tell me what Daemon it is trying to start? I can see another shell script in the pyAlienFX directory that references the daemon but I am hesitant to try to run it -- I'm worried that I might bugger something up.

    Ok -- I figured what the hell. I ran the daemon script and it looks like it is running. I then run pyAlienFX and it prompts me for my root password. I entered it, but I don't see anything else. No errors, no GUI nadda.

    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    Ok -- last hint for anyone following this thread. Daemon is running without issue, I can seend Ping -> Pong request responses. When I run the pyAlienFX_Launcher in a separate terminal window (as sudo) I see this output --

    Initializing Driver ...
    Comnputer M17XR3 found ! Loading the parameters ...
    Initializing Controller ...
    Loading : ./Profiles/Default.cfg
    SPEED = 65280
    Check Deamon
    Sending Ping
    Sent ...
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "./pyAlienFX_Indicator.py", line 130, in <module>
    indicator.main()
    File "./pyAlienFX_Indicator.py", line 107, in main
    self.check_daemon()
    File "./pyAlienFX_Indicator.py", line 114, in check_daemon
    ping = self.gui.controller.Ping()
    File "/usr/share/pyAlienFX/pyAlienFX.py", line 1269, in Ping
    pong = self.getResults()
    File "/usr/share/pyAlienFX/pyAlienFX.py", line 1194, in getResults
    data = self.sock.recv(self.BUFSIZE)
    socket.timeout: timed out


    Does anyone know how to get around this? I'm not sure why the socket is timing out since I can see the communication between to the two terminal sessions happening.

    Re: AlienFX Lite (Linux + Windows)

    Hi !

    I'm the Developper


    If you are running under Ubuntu :
    Can you try to download the last DEB file on the main page ?
    And then remove all the files you already have on your machine, then follow the install instruction on the Wiki of the main site.
    http://code.google.com/p/pyalienfx/

    If it still doesn't work can you post an Issue on the main site with the whole Traceback etc !

    Thanks
