SOLVED "MMM-BackgroundSlideshow" the path to the image in the USB folder?
If I update the image frequently, is there a way to save the path to the image in the USB folder?
@prism you will have to make a link from the module folder to the USB folder, then it will work…
the MM web server root is the MagicMirror/modules folder
see the ln command
Can you explain in detail? I’ve modified the path in ‘config.js’ and the module ‘MMM-BackgroundSlideshow.js’, but it does not recognize it.
Grace to the elderly who are not familiar with computers …
Wait for your detailed reply.
@prism who u calling elderly!. I am 68 in 2 weeks…lol!
the link (ln) command provides for a local folder (or ) file, actually being someplace else
ln -s "the usb folder" "some_new_directory in the MMM-BackgroundSlideshow folder"
then config the module to show images from the “some_new_directory in the MMM-BackgroundSlideshow folder”
in my case
lrwxrwxrwx 1 odroid odroid 18 Apr 29 12:40 uploads -> /media/odroid/misc/
uploads (here) points to my external disk shared over the network and mounted at /media/odroid/misc
so my commands were
cd MagicMirror/modules/MMM-ImageSlideShow ln -s /media/odroid/misc uploads
Thanks to you, I was able to work without any problems.
Thank you again for your kindness.
@prism great!.. can u mark this is resolved…
