RPI2 + Hyperion + OSMC


i just got my RPI2 yesterday (yessss :slight_smile: ) and installed OSMC alpha 4 on a usb stick,
it runs very very fast (thanks) but i cant get hyperion working on it.
cant run the install script on rpi2

got this error:

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo sh ./install_hyperion.sh

Did someone manage to get working hyperion on it? (rpi2)

thank you


sorry for posting, now it seems to work (in theory)
after work when i get back home, i will check on the leds.

osmc@osmc:~$ hyperion-remote --priority 50 --color red --duration 5000
Connected to localhost:19444
Set color to 255 0 0

it dont give errors, i guess then its ok now.

Hi Zoltan,

What type of LEDs are you using?



but right now im not sure that hyperion is working coz i cant see my leds,
i will get back to it after work.

Since i haven’t had an official reply yet: Is there a hyperion app? - #4 by Theetjuh
I’ll do my best to do an install tonight … I’ve had it working on all test and alpha builds.

I can make some test too is you need.

Sorry guys but

IT WORKS :smile:

i just got home, and the leds are working with rpi2 + osmc + hyperion just like before with rpi + raspbmc + hyperion.

happy :smiley:

What did you do for that ? :smiley:
Nothing ?

nothing :smile:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libqtcore4 libqtgui4 libqt4-network libusb-1.0-0 libprotobuf9 ca-certificates

wget -N https://raw.github.com/tvdzwan/hyperion/master/bin/install_hyperion.sh
sudo sh ./install_hyperion.sh

down side is, if the leds are connected to the rpi2 while the ds18b20 therm sensors,
the sensors wont work anymore (needs reboot and leds to be disconnected :frowning:

It’s good to know that Hyperion is working as expected on Alpha 4 with WS2801s.

Now I just need to figure out why WS2812s using GPIO18 don’t!

nice to hear Hyperion is working. Can you please give a quick start guide? I connected the LED on GPIO 10 MOSI and GPIO 11 SCLK exactly like RPi 1 and istalled Hypeiron like the guide at the Hyperion Wiki but cant geht them work :confounded:
Anything im doing wrong? I have the RPi2 too.


Same issues … my hyperion works fine on my RPi B and B+ but impossible to works in Rpi 2 B.

PS : Multiple OS tested for that on Raspberry 2 … No one works yet


Kill hyperiond

sudo service hyperion stop

Then run it on the console and see if you get any errors

sudo /usr/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion.config.json

I tested it last night … just like Zoltan posted … works perfectly.

But just like I posted here Is there a hyperion app? it keeps installing x11-common and all the rest of the stuff we don’t need, but is an dependency :unamused:

Yes but still works after reboot ?

Yup works just normal after every reboot :slight_smile:

I can build and ship a version of Hyperion in our applications store which does not dependent on x11-common if it is not a necessary dependency. I’ll email the Hyperion guys tonight.



Thanks in advance Sam!

You’re awesome… :smile:
