    Hello,

    Am sorry for the late reply and no the file does not exist. Even when I start the CumulusMX, in the browser, it is just all blank as such below:

    As I said above, the graphconfig.json file is created at each web update. It sounds like you don't have Cumulus configured to do web updates? If you don't want to upload to a web site, you can turn on web updating (set auto-update) and don't supply an ftp host name, and it will create the json files but not try to upload them (I think!).

    Alternatively you can create this file into the /tmp folder by using this command

    Code: Select all

    echo "{\"temp\":{\"units\":\"C\",\"decimals\":1},\"wind\":{\"units\":\"km/h\",\"decimals\":0},\"rain\":{\"units\":\"mm\",\"decimals\":1},\"press\":{\"units\":\"hPa\",\"decimals\":1},\"hum\":{\"decimals\":0},\"uv\":{\"decimals\":1}}" > /tmp/graphconfig.json
    Probably you need to change some of the values to match to your used locale.
    Once done, copy /tmp/graphconfig.json into your webdirectory.

    Hello,

    No I guess I found the problem. I am using Acurite Pro weather station which is not supported by CumulusMX. Guess need to find another option. :bash:

    Sorry, since I do not have such a display, I can not help you hwo to put the output of cumulusnow to your external display but:
    since the cumulusnow.sh output is a simple ssh output, it should normally be no problem to direct the output from the ssh window additionally to oyur display........
    Are you able to see your normal ssh windows output on the display ?

    Have you tried it manually first before you aksing about a autostart script ?

    ssh pi@raspberry 'export TERM=xterm;cd /home/pi/CumulusMX;./cumulusnow.sh'

    on a command line....does it work ? I do not have an extra display so I can not test it ....
