TelldusCenter 2.1.2 Beta 8 for Linux

We're happy to announce a TelldusCenter 2.1.2 beta for Linux too.

In addition to the functions described in the previous blog post about the beta, http://developer.telldus.com/blog/2013/05/23/tellduscenter_2.1.2_beta1, we have also added:

  • Support for wind/rain sensors for Oregon Scientific version 3 (WGR800 and PCR800) (new firmware needed, it will be posted here later on, but send us a support ticket for now if you are interested in trying it out)
  • Support for Oregon Scientific THGR810 and THGN801 (#284)
  • Support for RollerTrol blinds (#310)
  • Possibility to send sensor values to Telldus Live! (#186)

A new beta with these functions will also be released for Windows and Mac.

HOW TO INSTALL
Follow the instructions here: http://developer.telldus.com/wiki/TellStickInstallationUbuntu but instead use this Apt-line: deb http://download.telldus.com/debian/ unstable main

Available for:

Tested on Ubuntu 12.04 (i386/amd64), Debian 7 (i386, amd64, armel and armhf (raspbian))

Known issues:
TelldusCenter sometimes still segfaults on some platforms
TelldusCenter may stop automatic update of sensors and device state

We are still working on these issues, and if you run into them, or other problems, please let us know your system setup and, if possible, how to reproduce them.

Darn. This can't be installed on Debian Squeeze since it requires libftdi1 0.19 and libstdc++6 4.6. So users with Excito B2/B3 is out in the cold. I guess this will be the same in the final version? Will it work compiling from source?

That's unfortunate. It's quite possible that you can compile it yourself. I think libftdi1 >= 0.17 should be sufficient. Let us know if you need any help when compiling (send a support message).

Yep, compilation from source worked like a charm. Any chance of you fiddling with the package dependencies so that 2.1.2 final package could install out-of-the-box on Squeeze? We're talking libftdi 0.18 and libstdc++6 4.4.5.

Hmm, how do I configure my account to telldus live? I cannot find any manuals for tellduscenter.

While trying to install it, it says its allready installed, but I cannot run the command?

tom-erik@asus:~$ sudo apt-get install tellduscenter Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done tellduscenter is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 37 not upgraded.

Any guidelines would be much appreciated ;)

@3 Perhaps we can build it on a b3 instead of the current environment for armel. I'll see what we can do about it.

@4 TelldusCenter is a gui-program only. So it can either be started from the desktop, it should have been added as a shortcut, or you can start with "TelldusCenter" from a terminal.

6. daniel malmgren <daniel.malmgren.dm@…> -- 2013-10-10 14:06

Well, it doesn't have to be a B3. I guess the important thing is that it's something Squeeze-based :-)

"A new beta with these functions will also be released for Windows and Mac."

When will this be released? Getting sensor-information from my tellstick DUO to telldus Live is extremely sexy. Is it possible to build the windows-clients from source?
