Cover images are downloaded from last.fm
- Mopidy >= 0.18
- Pykka >= 1.1
Install by running:
pip install Mopidy-Touchscreen
Or, if available, install the Debian/Ubuntu package from apt.mopidy.com.
Before starting Mopidy, you must add configuration for Mopidy-Touchscreen to your Mopidy configuration file:
[touchscreen] enabled = true screen_width = 320 screen_height = 240 cursor = True fullscreen = False cache_dir = $XDG_CACHE_DIR/mopidy/touchscreen
The following configuration values are available:
- touchscreen/enabled: If the Touchscreen extension should be enabled or not.
- touchscreen/screen_width: The width of the resolution you want to use in pixels.
- touchscreen/screen_height: The width of the resolution you want to use in pixels.
- touchscreen/cursor: If the mouse cursor should be shown. (If you use a touchscreen it should be false)
- touchscreen/fullscreen: If you want to be shown as a window or in fullscreen.
- touchscreen/screen_width: The folder to be used as cache. Defaults to $XDG_CACHE_DIR/mopidy/touchscreen, which usually means ~/.cache/mopidy/touchscreen
How to Setup
Use the basic configuration to setup as most standard screens works fine without further configuration.
Raspberry Pi and LCD Shields
If you are using a LCD Shield in Raspberry Pi you need to config your LCD and run mopidy with root privileges:
Configure your LCD Shield
Add to the config the next variables:
[touchscreen] sdl_fbdev = /dev/fb1 sdl_mousdrv = TSLIB sdl_mousedev = event0
This is just an example. It may work but each LCD Shield seems to have its own configuration. To find your values find an example of using pygame with your LCD Shield and it should be something like this in the code:
os.environ["SDL_FBDEV"] = "/dev/fb1" os.environ["SDL_MOUSEDRV"] = "TSLIB" os.environ["SDL_MOUSEDEV"] = "event0"
Run mopidy with root privileges
You can use sudo mopidy.
In case you are using musicbox edit /etc/init.d/mopidy file. Change DAEMON_USER=mopidy to DAEMON_USER=root
Do not forget that this is a workaround and that mopidy will run with root privileges.
