My workaround above should temporaly solve this.

:grinning:

Hi Michael,

Cool stuff! Thanks a lot - worked great!

Just one comment to be complete if others run into the same:

the cp command had to look like cp -pR FireMotD-8.08.171007/* /opt/FireMotD

…and yes… changing the default password now… :wink:

Thanks again for your help!

Greetings

Christian

Thanks for your reply.

I corrected it in the workaround.

Greetings

Hi,
I have the same problem with FireMotD.
After trying the workaround suggested above I still got the error (picture below).


Is there something else I have to do to get it working?

Thanks
Jonathan

Hi,

I solved the problem with the workaround aswell.
I did something wrong the first time I tried it.
Sorry for that… :slight_smile:
Happy that it’s working
Thanks

Hello,

I have solved.

The file:

/usr/share/firemotd/data/FireMotD.json

was zero byte

Then, I thought to delete it file :

sudo rm /usr/share/firemotd/data/FireMotD.json

and recreate it

sudo /opt/FireMotD/FireMotD -S -v

If FireMotD.json not exist then:

sudo /opt/FireMotD/FireMotD -I -v

Hello Ray,

sadly I am unable to open the picture.

Would you please try to share it again?

Michael

Hi Michael,

That’s kind of weird! because I can see it without any issue.

But it shows:

2018-09-18 15:14:53,993: FireMotD: Info: No FireMotD ExportFile detected. Please generate with “sudo .\FireMotD -S”

End this is a clean install of openhabian (openhabianpi-raspbian-201804031720-gitdba76f6-crc9e93c3eb.img.xz) on a Raspberry Pi.

I did everything that is writen in this topic but whatever I do it comes with:

sudo: ./FiremotD: command not found.

Ray.

Hi Ray,

my fault … my companies proxy server is blocking the picture uri :slight_smile:

Please try:

sudo FiremotD -S

For explanation:
sudo ./FiremotD tries to find the file FireMotD in the current directory ( = ./ )
sudo FireMotD is looking for the file in different directories (use “echo $PATH” for details)

by the way:
when installing openhabian a routine is installing among other things FireMotD.
A couple of weeks ago IMHO there was a failure in the current FireMotD release.

the actual release [v10.03.180723] fixed the problems. you can get it by:

sudo openhabian-config

Please choose “10 | Apply Improvements” and in the next screen “15 | FireMotD”.

This will pull the latest release and blast your problems away.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the friendly responce.

First I did:
[15:06:31] openhabian@Raindomain:~$ sudo FiremotD -S
[sudo] password for openhabian:
sudo: FiremotD: command not found

Then I did:
[15:06:59] openhabian@Raindomain:~$ sudo openhabian-config
10 | Apply Improvements
15 | FireMotD

And that gave me this:

$ git clone https://github.com/OutsideIT/FireMotD /opt/FireMotD

I guess, I did not get what I was looking for.

Ray.

@Ad3D change directories and run sudo ./FireMotD -l -v like this:

cd /opt/FireMotD$ sudo ./FireMotD -I -v

Thanks for that, Alein – worked great on my system, too!

Frank

this worked for me, thanks

Worked as well for me, thanks. #H102

TomDidi

Thanks for everybodies input.
It worked for me too, but still needed to redo some things before it was actually solved.
In the end think this was my sequence of relevant commands (cd~ really relevant?):

sudo mv /opt/FireMotD{,.old}
cd ~
wget https://github.com/OutsideIT/FireMotD/archive/v8.08.171007.zip
unzip v8.08.171007.zip
mkdir /opt/FireMotD
cp -pR FireMotD-8.08.171007/* /opt/FireMotD
cd ~
sudo bash /opt/FireMotD/FireMotD -S
sudo reboot now

Because the problem is solved now I hope all is correct :slight_smile:

work for me as well. thank you.
