Updated from .9alpha to .12 and now PWM ws281x/sk6812 not working

  • I updated and set all my settings to how I had them previously and can see that USB capture is working, the LED visualization is working, all my hardware settings are as they were before, but I am not getting any light outputting now to my LEDs. I inserted my backup image before I updated hyperion and the LEDs still work so I know its not a hardware issue. One thing I am noticing too is the the "LED Output" button keeps staying in "off" position even though I keep switching it to on. Can anyone provide me with help with this? I would appreciate the help tremendously

    It is always good to share what is reported in the Log as an Error.


    I assume it says that you are running Hyperion not under root which is required for this type of LEDS.


    To fix that execute this command in terminal:


    sudo updateHyperionUser -u root

  • Thanks so much! I love the work you have done for this by the way. I wasn't able to get that command to work however I was able to also use :


    sudo systemctl disable --now hyperiond@pi


    sudo systemctl enable --now hyperiond@root


    and then reboot.



    Thanks tons!!!!
