    Jivelite and (hopefully) Screen Switcher Applet

    Hello,
    i used my Squeezebox-Touch for years but now i switched to a Raspberry 3 with pCP, Jivelite and 7'' display. This setting is a good replacement for my old touch but there is on thing i really miss.
    It's the Screen Switcher Applet from Erland Isaksson. http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.ph...witcher_applet
    Sadly it is not listed in the Applet Installer.

    Is there any chance to get this applet working in jivelite?
    Maybe someone has a good idea.

    Thanks

    Yes, the correct repo is added. But it's not showing the screen switcher applet.
    I think i have to install it directly from jivelite under settings-->advanced-->applet installer.
    But there is only CustomClock, JiveLite Demo Applet and License Manager listed.

    the same result like my SB-touch, all applets available.

    I think i'll have to wait for bluetdi, or maybe someone
    can explain how i can get this work.

    Take winSCP, SSH into your Touch and go to the following path:

    /usr/share/jive/applets

    Select the folder "ScreenSwitcher" and copy it to your PC. Close the connection.

    SSH into your PicorePlayer and go to:

    /home/tc/.jivelite/userpath/applets

    Copy the said folder there, close the connection.

    Go on your Picoreplayer to settings/piCoreplayer and save the settings (just to be shure). Reboot. On the Screen Saver-screen there should be the ScreenSwitcher settings. Set your screens and times. Go back to settings/piCoreplayer and save the settings (again, just to be shure). Reboot (to be shure).

    Again, SSH into your PicorePlayer and go to:

    /home/tc/.jivelite/userpath/settings

    There should be a new file "ScreenSwitcher.lua" with your settings. If not, copy this file from your Touch to the piCorePlayer.

    Good luck.

    Thanks bluetdi for your help and the very good explaination. I followed the steps and could succsessfully install the ScreenSwitcher applet.
    I've also installed the Daylight Clock applet, but it doesn't look so nice on the 7'' screen.
    Now i'm looking for some nice customClock templates to switch on my screen.

    The Screen Switcher applet doesn't appear in the applet installer on Jivelite because the repo.xml doesn't include jivelite in the targets list.
