Many distributions clear their /tmp directory at boot.

/var/tmp should be a permanent temp.

Hi,

Do you restart the whole system or just meter? Do you see any error when you start the meter manually?

When the plugin starts and cannot find the fifo it will create the new one defined in the ALSA config file.

Best regards

I see that myfifo is created automatically . but again it does not working .. I am on blue meter . Myfifo is written .
yes I have restart whole system . What do you mean by start the meter manually or automatically ? I started with openvt -s . I also tried to started wth openvt -w -s but when I press Ctrl+C only the script is stopping without also changhing the UI back to Volumio.
If the script is running and I change the meter type and press again openvt the scripts does not change to the selected meter type
Thanks

I have added in mpd.conf:;
Code:
audio_output {
        type            "fifo"
        name            "myfifo"
        path            "/tmp/myfifo"
        format          "44100:16:2"
}
save and close then I deleted , perform a reboot and now it is working .
Now I am curios if I perfom a reboot what it is happening .
but the most annoying part is that I can not kill the peppymeter and going bsck to volumiio UI without a reboot or changing the meter type without perfofming a reboot
I do not know if make sense what I said
A volumio user suggested to use dealocvt command asfter killing the script
Regards

You don't need to define fifo in the mpd.conf. You are asking mpd to output PCM signal to the same fifo used by the peppyalsa. This is wrong. Only peppyalsa should send the signal to the fifo.

I have not used deallocvt before but it can probably help. You can try.

Best regards

Don't forget to change this line in the meter's config file:
PeppyMeter/config.txt at 1f1a6e93762cc0edd2805a8af2ad409beae3a06e * project-owner/PeppyMeter * GitHub
to /tmp/myfifo or whatever name you use.

Best regards
