MMM-voice ugly hdmi banner



  • @sdetweil thanks ive done this command chmod +x external_motion but i don’t see an outcome it just re turns to pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-SleepWake

    whole commandline below

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-SleepWake $ chmod +x external_motion



  • @dazza120 right. That makes my script executable, so motion can execute it

    Now u will see files appear in the MMM-SleepWake/motion folder

    When the motion module detects motion, and when it ends.

    My module uses those files



  • @sdetweil u start the motion tool with sudo motion &

    And u can see it’s actions in /var/log/motion/motion.log

    The tail command will show you the last few lines (default 20) of a file



  • @sdetweil i’ll have a look tomorrow, thanks very much for your help much appreciated for your help



  • @sdetweil not sure its supposed to look like this

  • @dazza120 Hey Dazza. Post it in the code-block you can use in the editor. Otherwise it’s hard to read your code/output.



  • @mdhenriksen not sure why it came out like that but i am doing it via vnc on my phone lol thank you that should be sorted now



  • @dazza120 Hm… mine says
    [-1191364720:motion] [NTC] [ALL] conf_load: Processing thread 0 - config file /etc/motion/motion.conf



  • @sdetweil hi for some reason I have no motion.conf file in there, but I was getting tones of video clips stored in /home/Pi folder, can you tell me the best remove command for motion project as I’ll start again from scratch and looking at one of the files in the home/Pi folder it said
    Install complete! The default configuration file, motion-dist.conf, has been
    installed to /usr/local/etc/motion. You need to rename/copy it to motion.conf
    for Motion to find it. More configuration examples as well as init scripts
    can be found in /usr/local/share/motion/examples.



  • @dazza120 weird… if u installed with
    apt-get install motion
    then the command is
    apt-get --purge remove motion
