I installed MMM-ImageSlideshow and I want to upload the images from the USB drive. I don’t understand the settings from the last step:
know terminal window write this
ln -s / media / pi / home / pi / MagicMirror / modules / MMM-ImageSlideshow / USB
now that create a short cut in the USB folder (windows man HERE LOL)
I drill down into it
Please, can someone explain in detail what I have to do?
@george the module is hard coded to use the uploads folder in the module folder.
so, if u want to get the files from somewhere else, u can use the linux link command (ln)
to make uploads point to somewhere else.
I do this to point to a server share being used on my pi.
ln -s source_folder dest_folder
in my case, from the module folder
rm -rf uploads ln -s /media/myserver/folder/subfolder uploads
@sdetweil , thanks!
