Ugh, I ended up working this weekend and I haven't gotten around to finishing jGPIO, sorry!

Finally having a chance to try and install this but I'm a Debian, Ubuntu, Linux noob. I can usually get stuff to work but it takes me a long time, thus my question.
Is there a noobie version of how to install this? I downloaded the zip from github but it was empty then I used this command

Code:
curl -L -o master.zip http://github.com/DougEdey/SB_Elsinore_Server/zipball/master/
and was able to extract the files.
Now I think I need to extract Elsinore.jar but the jar command was not found. What Version of OpenJDK do I need?

Are there any other dependencies that I need to install?
Once that is extracted, do you just open the launchElsinore file?

I'll get this one of these days...

So I haven't made a newbie version of the startup, because this isn't what I'd call stable (mainly because of the RPi, I've had no issues on the Beaglebone).

I also like to see how many people using it.

The easiest startup is:

Code:
sudo apt-get install git java
git clone https://github.com/DougEdey/SB_Elsinore_Server.git
cd SB_Elsinore_Server
java -jar Elsinore.jar
I'm unsure on the apt-get install command for java (it's in the RPi repositories, but not the Beaglebone ones).

the first run will walk you through the setup (the Readme should help).

But this isn't a foolproof system, I've tried to make it so, but until sometime next week when I do a new brewday, it won't be dead easy.

The next set of updates are fairly important, adding in times and alerts. At the moment, this is a multiple PID system.

Sorry for the delays, some real life got in the way. I'll be pushing updates this week, but I'll be pushing to a new branch, since the changes I've made will be untested on Raspberry Pi, if someone is willing to test on the Pi, I'd like to know of any issues ASAP since I've rewritten the GPIO code.

The changes are in place to support DTO for Linux Kernel 3.8, but I will need to add more data when that comes out for RPi.

I'd love to be testing it out on the RPi but I'm still having trouble just setting things up. Maybe once I get it going.

No problem testing... As soon as the new SSR comes in ill be trying out my first brew all electric. Now i am going to have to get a new SD card if there is a problem on brew day .

What problem are you having getting things setup on the RPi? I can help you out.

I don't have an RPi anymore I found them to be too unstable so I moved to a beaglebone (which forced my hand on the new GPIO libraries)

Cank here are rough install instruction for the RPi from a fresh Raspbian Wheezy install. You could probably get away without doing the first 2 steps as the latest Raspbian is from September. Let me know if I can help you out with installation.

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install git
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
git clone https://github.com/DougEdey/SB_Elsinore_Server.git ~/BrewServer
cd ~/BrewServer
**** Create reibrew.cfg    see sample below ***
sudo java -jar Elsinore.jar

#Sample rpibrew.cfg
[general]
scale = F

[kettle]
duty_cycle = 100.0
cycle_time = 2.0
set_point = 175.0
proportional = 30.0
integral = 0.0
derivative = 0.0
aram = 4.0
probe = 28-000004472313
gpio = 11

running:

Code:
sudo java -jar Elsinore.jar
Without a rpibrew.cfg file will walk you through setup and show you your temperature probes so you can set it up without manually editing files. Except for moving the rpibrew.cfg.new to rpibrew.cfg.

When you update the set point, cycle time, duty cycle, proportional, integral, and derivative values in the user interface (any of them) it'll save the settings to the config file.

Thanks guys. I got it installed but have not hooked up temp probes yet. Should get a chance to do that Sunday.
