Cool.

Upload some pictures of the printer and meteostation when some prints done.

Here's a pic of the machine, I will attempt your weather station enclosure this week once I've mastered the settings for PETG carbon fibre filament.

Hello group,
MeteoStation I have built and tested for about a month. It works well. Good work.

Just a few little things.

1. Water penetrated the electronics. Problem solved with silicone sealant.

2. I do not start automatically at startup. I've already tried all the syntax. The readme is written :
(Test startupMETEO.sh and put on rc.local if you want a automatic startup.)

What do you have in
rc.local
?

3. After switching off and on after a few minutes, the cloud chart rendering has changed. See the screenshot.

Do not you know why? I've already tried to stop the script and run it again, another restart, nothing works.

Thanks.

Tomas

I also get this on restart of the scripts, it does come back to normal after a few hours. Do not worry.

2. I do not start automatically at startup. I've already tried all the syntax. The readme is written :

I think that is for older ubuntu systems. You could make a meteostationWEB.service and enable it.

However I think the easyest way is to use cron.

Create a file in /etc/cron.d with the followin content
@reboot yourUserName cd /home/yourUserName/meteostationWEB/ && startMETEO.sh

I usually make symlinks to apps in my home directory in /srv . That way I can swap versions by changing the symlink, and not worry about paths changing.
sudo ln -s /home/yourUserName/meteostationWEB /srv/meteostationWEB
(If you get a error with no directory named /srv/meteostationWEB then swap places for dir and symlink. I often get those swapped on the first try)

Then change the cron file to
@reboot yourUserName cd /srv/meteostationWEB/ && startMETEO.sh

He draws a poor graph for almost 1 week. :-(

Thanks Magnus_e. I did not remember Cron.

I have Ubuntu Mate 16.04, Raspberry Pi3.

Create a file in /etc/cron.d with the followin content

@reboot yourUserName cd /home/yourUserName/meteostationWEB/ && startMETEO.sh


Not working. Some bugs.

I added the entry to:
/ etc / crontab
This is working.:)

Once again, thank you Magnus_e.

Hi Kalda. I see there was a typo in my last post. You will need ./startMETEO.sh

So
@reboot yourUserName cd /home/yourUserName/meteostationWEB/ && ./startMETEO.sh

For the issue with the graph. It looks like it has skipped a few datapoints makin the line of the graph open. This results in the bottom half not being filled in.
One fix is to stop meteostationWEB delete everything in meteostationWEB/html/CHART

so
cd /home/yourUserName/meteostationWEB
./stopMETEO.sh
rm -rf html/CHART/*
./startMETEO.sh # Or just reboot, if you have the startup scripts running.

This will clear all charts, and start over on a fresh page. (You will loose the week+ of data you have)

Sorry that I'm slow to help. My MeteoStation has some connection issues, and as it's remote, I cannot really debug....

Waiting on some single cored wires, so I can sodder all sensors to my GeekCreit Arduino Nano v3 from Banggood. (Three of those was cheaper than one Adafruit Trinket PRO bought locally).
Ive printet a new case with the newest versions of the files, and it looks even cleaner than the old one :)
When I get the bugs ironed out, ill install the new one to my obsy.

Hi Magnus,
thanks, I'm also busy.

One fix is to stop meteostationWEB delete everything in meteostationWEB/html/CHART

I deleted everything in the CHART directory. Without changes. I tried deleting the Meteostaion directory and copying everything from github again. Still poorly draws a graph.

The top 3 lights do not work (Clouds Drawing Freezing). Now there is no light and it glows before.

I will try a new clean install on Raspberry Pi 3.


Sorry that I'm slow to help. My MeteoStation has some connection issues, and as it's remote, I cannot really debug....

My first version was also built with Adafruit Trinket PRO. Sometimes Adafruit Trinket PRO did not communicate with Raspberry Pi. Sometimes he lost communication. I did not know the problem. I exchanged it for Arduino Nano v3 and communicates with RPi perfectly.

I'm printing a new case too. Good work with case adjustment. Free space is always good.

Hey, guys.

I've solved the problem with a bad cloud chart. The problem was when you loaded the firmware into Arduino Nano. Arduino IDE did not report an error, but it did not work properly.
From another PC I uploaded the firmware and it works! :)
