Title: ConciergeServer on Ubuntu needs gksu installed
Post by: gniknalu on January 18, 2018, 09:24:15 am
Figured out why it didn't "install.sh" on my default Ubuntu 16.04 LTS box

Code: [Select]
xxxxx@xxxxxx:/xxxx/xxxx/ConciergeServer$ cat install.sh
#!/bin/sh
gksu cp conciergeserver /etc/init.d/conciergeserver
gksu chmod 755 /etc/init.d/conciergeserver
gksu update-rc.d conciergeserver defaults
gksu service conciergeserver start
sleep 5
xdg-open https://localhost:8989

I don't have gksu installed. Simple to fix.

I get you close ... you can change the gksu to su ... in the various scripts that are generated.
You need to do the update if you want upgrades to work.

installing gksu was not an issue.

Everything was working without the update. It was awesome!!
Now that I see 2.019 is available, I'm dating it right now!  :)

Thanks!

Noticed my customization changes disappeared when I updated. No problem - I printed a paper that had the originals. Just thought I'd mention it in case someone else encounters it.

You can always save the .jsonenc file as a backup.

Then what? Will I need to diff the old with the new? (It should be something mentioned in the docs if that is the case.)

Thanks for responding.
