    Hello,
    I was trying make Lightberry...
    Hardware: Rpi 1, WS2801 ant tv 48", 32 GB class 10
    Software, OSMC.

    So, at first

    mkdir hyperion && cd hyperion

    next
    wget -N https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tvdzwan/hyperion/master/bin/install_hyperion.sh

    sudo chmod +x install_hyperion.sh

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

    sudo sh ./install_hyperion.sh

    ...Enabling SPI ..
    .


    cd ~ && mkdir hyperion_conf && cd hyperion_conf && wget -N https://github.com/LightberryEu/plugin.program.hyperion.configurator/archive/master.zip

    Plugin installed with succes, but wen I'm trying run Hyperion Config Creator, I see "Hyperion was not detected".


    Where is a problem?

    Greetings,
    please refer to the lightberry support. This addon is not maintained from us and not in our scope.

    If you need help with Hyperion have a look at our Wiki for latest instructions.

    OK, but when I typing:
    sudo service hyperion status,
    I see:
    * hyperion.service - Hyperion Systemd service
    Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/hyperion.service; enabled)
    Active: failed (Result: start-limit) since Sun 2016-07-03 09:38:44 CEST; 20min ago
    Process: 4353 ExecStart=/usr/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion/hyperion.config.json (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
    Main PID: 4353 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

    Jul 03 09:38:44 osmcc systemd[1]: hyperion.service start request repeated too quickly, refusing to start.
    Jul 03 09:38:44 osmcc systemd[1]: Failed to start Hyperion Systemd service.
    Jul 03 09:38:44 osmcc systemd[1]: Unit hyperion.service entered failed state.


    So, it is problem with hyperion software, not with operation system :).

    Code:
    journalctl -u hyperion
    should give you the information you need

    Hi @cloudbu ,

    Can you run the below command in an SSH session and post the output afterwards :)

    Code:
    ls -lh /etc/hyperion/

    That looks like the reason Hyperion can't start as hyperion.config.json is missing, would check with Lightberry support as the Hyperion service expects this file:

    Code:
    Process: 4353 ExecStart=/usr/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion/hyperion.config.json (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

    yes and all informations outside our scope will deprecate from time to time. At this page you get always the right instructions to work with hyperion.
    this is the project page, not a fan page :)

    Follow this to see how you could deal with .jsons and upload them https://hyperion-project.org/thread...-hyperion-ambilight-no-soldering.77/#post-381
    The Wiki give you all informations you need to configure it

    your last question: no

    Works
    solution is creating hyperion.config.json file by "touch" command.
    Less is working, but sometimes flickering with random color. Why?
