Software & Applications / Tunneling VNC through SSH (PuTTy)
« on: October 14, 2014, 09:57:16 am »
Hey guys,

i want to tunnel my vnc traffic through SSH from the windows ssh client PuTTy, but i doenst work and i dont know why.. in PuTTy i entered the internet adress for my cubie and i added a tunnel under SSH->Tunnels like that:
Source Port: 5900
Destination: (which i can access via tightvncviewer)

I can connect with PuTTy and in the Event Log i also can see "2014-10-14 15:53:41   Local port 5900 forwarding to" but when i try to connect to "localhost" with tightvncviewer it says: "Status: connection established." but then nothing happens until the connection will be closed again...
In PuTTy event log i can see "2014-10-14 15:55:16   Forwarded connection refused by server: Connect failed [Connection timed out]" then..

The VNCserver is password protected, is that a problem ?

Software & Applications / Allow MPD to wake HDD ?
« on: August 22, 2014, 08:30:20 am »
Hey there,

I've got MPD running on my Cubietruck with Media coming from an SATA HDD. The HDD goes in sleep mode while inactive, which is good! But as I want to start Music from MPD it wont start, because the HDD doenst wake up ... do I have to set permissions for that ? MPD is runing a user service, rather then by it's own user ... (had trouble with audio playback..)

Cubieboard v3 Hardware (Cubietruck) / Power Supply Dead ?
« on: August 21, 2014, 01:55:57 pm »
Hey there,

But if it try the USB to Go it boots normally... any suggestions ?

Tips, Tricks and Guides / MPD via PulseAudio
« on: August 20, 2014, 11:11:19 am »
Hey guys, another HowTo for M(usic) P(layer) D(aemon), which allows you to use the Cubie as a Music Player, with control from remote devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc..)

I use Aruntu 1.001, which uses PulseAudio as a Sound"manager"

1. Get MPD
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mpd

2. Configure the daemon
Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /etc/mpd.conf

3. Change "music, playlists" paths to your own music folders
Code: [Select]
music_directory         "/your/music/folder"
playlist_directory      "/your/playlists/folder"
I think you can add *.pls files in the playlists folder for radio stations ;)

4. Allow network access
commend bind_to_address
Code: [Select]
5. Change Audio Output and save changes
Code: [Select]
audio_output {
type "pulse"
name "MPD PulseAudio Output"
Code: [Select]
save changes with editor
6. Preventively set permissions for mpd
Code: [Select]
sudo chmod g+w /your/music/folder /your/playlists/folder
sudo chgrp audio /your/music/folder /your/playlists/folder

7. Restart mpd service
Code: [Select]
sudo /etc/init.d/mpd restart
sudo mpc update

Hope it works for you guys ;)

About the forum / Chat ?

I think a Chat, besides the forum would be really helpfull, for just asking "stupid" questions ;)

there should be an addon for the forum software for it ?

Tips, Tricks and Guides / Autostart vnc11server on LXDE

1. Set default password:
Code: [Select]

2. Create "" in /home/cubieez/

Code: [Select]
#! /bin/sh
x11vnc -forever -display :0

3. Create "VNC Autostart" in /etc/xdg/autostart

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]

Should start automatically at boot up!
