I'm trying to run boblight in conjunction with Arduino (based on this tutorial: http://hackhappy.org/linux/build-your-own-ambilight-system-ubuntu-xbmc-boblight/#comment-36)
when I try running $ boblightd& I get the following message:
ERROR: /etc/boblight.conf line 7: unknown key output.
Line 7 of boblight.conf reads:
any ideas what might be wrong here please?

Can you post your boblight.conf ?

Ok, then I have to find another solution. could it work with a VM? would i be able to access the usb ports there?
a windows version would be sooo nice, more people should be able to use this great tool. tv looks boring without it now

Here it is - I just copied it off the tutorial page.

sure a linux vm should do it. When using virtual box even usb should work...

Can you post the exact file you're using?

i got really fast support in the freetz forum, see here:
will try that first add that link to the first post if you want.
- Memphiz - 2012-03-05 00:36
I would link it if it was a bit more userfriendly and official...

what do you mean exactly by 'post the exact file'?
I copied my boblight.conf and pasted in my previous reply

Does anyone have the 64bits binary used by XBMC Boblight to use in OpenELEC?
I tried several re-installes (clean and upgrades) without luck, everytime i'm getting the message library missing.

The error you're getting is impossible, and the only other time I've seen someone having problems with the config file is when it was saved as UTF-8 instead of ascii.

hehe..that's intersting. Can you tell me what i can do to check whether the file is ASCII?
I just did $ sudo nano /etc/boblight.conf to create the file and pasted the text in there over SSH.
- bobo1on1 - 2012-03-06 04:16
That should tell you enough.
It's also possible that the [device] line is not correct.
- beta-j - 2012-03-06 19:33
"$ file /etc/boblight.conf
/etc/boblight.conf: ASCII English text"
so I guess that's not the issue..
any pointers on what I should check about the [device] line?
the error specifically points to the "output /dev/ttyACM0" line, but I'm pretty sure that this is correct . I tried dmesg | tail just after connecting the Arduino and it showed ttyACM0 ... is there some other way I can check that this is the correct port?
I'm using an Arduino Uno board....does that make any difference?
