RE: Onion Omega Enclosure Box
Here are some enclosures I have found. I have used 2 of them, myself.
I dont have a printer, or print enough to warrant buying one, so I use Shapeways to print mine. Just upload the files and choose the material, they do the rest. Turn around time is pretty quick, too.
RE: Cannot connect to Wifi to setup Omega2 Plus (Unmatched double quote ?)
You may need to change the wifi password on the router.
@MARK-HOSKEN There are a few people who have created some drawings already. I have printed out a couple for the expansion board and Omega2
This is the one I have printed up for the expansion board.
I may get one of these for the minidock
I have used https://www.shapeways.com with great success. I dont know anyone locally who has a printer.
RE: Unable to successfully change password...
@Brad-Buskey That isn't the point, I know I can do that, but shouldn't the GUI Settings manager work??
At what point do you stop banging your head against a wall and wipe up the blood from your forehead.
It is not a secret that the web-based console rarely works right. There are plenty of threads complaining about it. The command line always works. That includes for setting the name, wifi info, AP info, and so on.
Now, if you want to go into the web source and fix it, then by all means do so, and share the results. If all you wanted was to change the password, why the hell are you bitching when a solution is given to do exactly what you wanted?
RE: Which to buy??
There are actually more than that.
Mini dock only allows the O2 to get power, it has no pinouts. It also allows a Serial connection, great for troubleshooting
Expansion Dock allows for the different expansion boards as well as having access to all of the pinouts. It also allows a Serial connection, great for troubleshooting.
Power Dock adds the ability to charge a battery and use it for power on top of the normal power via micro-USB. However it takes away the Serial connection ability. It also has the pinouts ready to use.
Arduino takes the Expansion Dock and adds the ability to connect and use the different boards/expansions for Arduino boards and hats.
I have the first three, and each has their uses. I like the expansion dock for building the OS and configuring and testing the expansions.
The power dock I use for a webcam/security cam as it will keep broadcasting even if the power goes out. (My modem and router are also on battery backup).
The minidock I use to just carry one around with me for tinkering. I have 3 O2's and each has their own dock.
RE: LED or other digital display recommendations
I have used this LCD and have gotten it to work with a tutorial here.
This is how I got it working with the LCD
You will need to get an expansion dock, power dock or mini dock or ardruino dock to really make it easy to work with. If you didnt, you can order one from the indygogo campaign.
RE: procps missing?
@None-None Dont know what to tell you. I ran that this morning and it found the package. did you try doing the install with the procps-ng?
opkg update opkg install procps-ng
Mine already had it installed. I am also on firmware 0.1.9 b156 (with all the latest issues, I am not upgrading any time soon.)
You could also browse out to the http://repo.onion.io/omega2 and get the path to the package there and then use wget to download the package and then opkg to install it (when run from the same dir as the downloaded package)

RE: procps missing?
What is listed in your /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf file?
It is like you are missing a repository.
src/gz omega2_core http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/core

RE: Omega expansion dock out of stock
you can only order from indiegogo campaign right now. just make another pledge.
RE: [Project] Display GPS Location on OLED
Very cool- pretty similar to what I did. I added an animation while it was getting the fix. Just starts marching across the screen. I'll have to upload my script at some point.
FYI, you don't need to save a file with the data. You can call ubus directly:
gpsDataProcess = Popen(["ubus", "call", "gps", "info"], stdout=PIPE) gpsDataJSON = gpsDataProcess.communicate() gpsDataProcess.stdout.close() if ( gpsDataProcess.returncode == 0 ): # gps available gpsData = json.loads(gpsDataJSON)
I must be missing something here. I get the following when I run the .py file.
Writing '+-------------------+' to display
Writing '| Current GPS Info: |' to display
Writing '+---------+---------+' to display
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "showgps2.py", line 23, in <module>
gpsDataProcess = open(["ubus", "call", "gps", "info"], stdout=PIPE)
NameError: name 'PIPE' is not defined
