if you have an android smartphone you can use RasPi Check
Volumio 1.5 supports Spotify 8-)

Changelog: http://goo.gl/rkjrqe

if you found a grammatical error you can keep it for yourselve

This application needs also the tool vcgencmd...
The following message is showed when i try to use it: "The tools 'vcgencmd' was not found in your Pi. Make sure it is located under '/usr/bin' or /opt/vc/bin'"

Hello,
As i mentionned, Raspi Check uses vcgencmd tool that is no longer available in Volumio.
The following message is showed when we try to use it: "The tools 'vcgencmd' was not found in your Pi. Make sure it is located under '/usr/bin' or /opt/vc/bin'"
What could be the solution to solve this problem?
Can i add easily vcgencmd in Volumio?


Thanks
Regard

Hi,
I did a update of Volumio as Michelangelo explains :
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get uppdate
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo rpi-update

and now vcgcmd commands are available
hope it will help

Thanks!!
It's working!
Just a precision.. You need to use pi account to get temperature, not enough privilege for volumio account.

Hi. I followed balbuze's post. After the restart Volumio2 would not start, and the Pi was not even visible on the network. (Volumio2 on Pi3). Is it a Volumio2 thing or is there something else I should do? Thank you.

This is meant to be used on 1.55 only. With Volumio 2, 'rpi-update' will break your system.
If you really need it, add a request to the issue list on http://github.com/volumio/volumio2, perhaps it can be built in.
