    I’ve installed m2p V2.47 on a RPi. I installed squeezelite and jivelite. Everything seems to work except for the Custom Clock and License Manager apps.

    I can install both and get Custome Clock to show-up in the Extras window, but nothing happens when I select it.

    I’m trying to move from piCorePlayer to m2p but can’t get anything related to the custom clocks to work.

    Hi Frank

    Custom Clock is one of Erlands many plugins.

    All Erlands plugins are now free of charge, so you shall uninstall the license Manager check if custom clock works there after.

    If that doesn’t help, visit the official support forum an make a search for Custom Clock: click here

    Well I’ve tried installing the CustomClockApp on a virgin max2play V2.47 install with Squeezelite and jivelite installed and without the licensemanager (both from the jivelite app install and from the LMS plugins. Whatever I try I cannot get the CustomClockApp to work.

    The app shows-up in jivelite, but nothing happens when I try to run it in anyway.

    I’ve been trying to figure-out how to get Squeezelite logging to work so I can follow what’s happening and not happening, but when I start it with -d all=debug, I don’t see any debug logging.

    Can anyone help here?

    Hi ftarz,

    You need to observe the LMS log as playback is handled there.

    You can try manually installing it as this seems to have been an issue for someone else in the past (slimdevices thread).

    Well I’ve looked at the squeezelite log file but it doesn’t show anything related to the custom clock app. In fact it doesn’t show much after the start-up of the server anyway.

    I think the custom clock app is installed OK:

    I’ve tried several times to get the custom clock app working, but no luck. Everything else, including the SuperDateTime plugin, works just fine. I’ve tried with different versions of LMS installed (7.9, 7.9.1, 7.9.2): no difference. I’ve tried with different versions of Jivelite installed, but also no luck. I see the icon for the custom clock, but absolutely nothing happens when I touch it. Likewise nothing happens when I try to set-up a custom clock entry for a screen saver.

    I don’t know enough about how the window manager in max2play works to figure-out what’s wrong. It appears to be something the affects just the custom clock app.

    Hi Frank,

    The LMS log is in the Squeezebox Server plugin web interface, not in Squeezelite. You can find a link debug info at the bottom of each plugin’s web interface.

    However, since only this specific applet seems to be the issue it is more likely that you will the solution from the applet itself. Here’s the discussion on it.

    8. März 2019 at 6:22 #44711

    OK, I’ve done some digging and discovered what’s happening here.

    First to respond to the previous post:
    > The LMS log is in the Squeezebox Server plugin web interface, not in Squeezelite. You can find a link debug info at the bottom of each
    > plugin’s web interface.
    The squeezelite log and the LMS log are the same thing. The plugin web interface gets its log file from the squeezelite log.

    To answer what’s happening with the CustomClock applet, I installed raspian on an SDcard and then installed LMS (Squeezelite) by following this: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/Debian_Package#installing_7.9.2.

    Then I installed Jivelite by following this: http://www.hagensieker.com/jivelite/index.php

    You can set-up the squeezelite service to start at boot, SSH into the Pi, manually start Jivelite and follow the warning and error messages in the SSH session.

    Upon starting Jivelite I see this in the SSH session:

    When I click on the Custom Clock entry I see the same behavior as in max2play: nothing happens. But in the SSH session I see:

    It’s the same error as above.

    Lines 347-350 in the CustomClockApplet.lua file are:
    if ((oldMode and self.mode != oldMode) or self.licensed~=licensed) and self.window then
    self.window:hide()
    self.window = nil
    end

    According to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/34713203/what-does-lua-operator-mean/34713230: the ~= is not equals. It is the equivalent in other languages of !=

    So the „!=“ entries in the CustomClockApplet.lua file are incorrect and should be „~=“.

    Sure enough when I change all the „!=“ to „~=“ the CustomClock applet works correctly!

    I stll have 2 problems: after changing all the „!=“ to „~=“ in the CustomClockApplet.lua file, there still are 2 other instances of the „!“ character in :
    function _token_of(c)
    local x,y = string.match(c,“^%s*([/!]?)%s*(%a+)%s*“)
    return (x or „“) .. (y or „“)
    end

    and:

    [„br“] = ‚\n‘,
    [„/br“] = ‚\n‘,

    [„/th“] = „“,
    }

    I don’t know if one of both of these should be changed as well.

    The other problem is that if I install the CustomClock app in Jivelite, then fix the „!=“ so that it runs correctly, then uninstall and reinstall it again, the CustomClock app is copied back with the incorrect „!=“. The file is coming from http://superdatetimewu.sourceforge.net/CustomClock_JL_1.01.004.zip.

    I need to into piCorePlayer to see how it handles the „!=“ and why this isn’t a problem there.

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for the detailed report.
    We will try to recreate the issue and see if your fix could be applied generally, should there be a need.
