Re: Not Posting on Twitter

As mentioned earlier in this thread, Cumulus can no longer obtain the tokens to allow it to post to Twitter, since Twitter changed their interface yet again.

Re: An error has occurred - please zip up the MXdiags folder and post it in the forum

2018-05-25 17:00:00.282 System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file 'C:\Cumulus\web\record.htm' because it is being used by another process.

Something was preventing Cumulus using that file.

Re: Cumulus MX base OS and set-up advice

It shouldn’t matter what hardware you use or what version of Linux, as long as you can install the required packages, and connect your station to it.

A Raspberry Pi running Raspbian (Wheezy, I think) was what I used for testing MX on Linux, and for runnng my own weather station until it closed.

Re: Cumulus MX base OS and set-up advice

The system requirements are in the announcement post which contains the download file. For Linux, you need libudev0 and a suitable version of Mono. The version of Linux you use is up to you, as long as you can also install the required packages. This may not be straightforward, as libudev0 may not b...

Re: Running MX as a second Cumulus on same computer

There’s a communication problem between Cumulus and the logger, Cumulus frequently isn’t getting any response, and it looks like the connection eventually fails, hence the crash.

Re: Behaviour of "today" tags at the end of the day

I don’t propose to change that behaviour (if I ever do any more development) as I believe it’s correct (any actions will be just after 0900 so a new day has already started). However, I do agree with you that being able to use the figures before they are reset would be useful. One of the enhancement...

Re: Solar Radiation Constantly Maxed Out?

The MX interface is completely user editable. So if there are items being displayed for sensors which you don’t actually have (which I think is what you’re saying), you can edit the files in the interface directory so that they aren’t displayed. Or, if you don’t feel able to do that, you can just ig...

Re: Running MX as a second Cumulus on same computer

In the TCP/IP settings, you need the TCP port that the logger is using, not the Cumulus interface port.

Re: Monthly records

...unless you mean the highs and lows for the current month, in which case it’s in month.ini, and I can’t remember whether there’s a built in editor for that.

It’s in monthlyalltime.ini, but you can use the built-in editor in Cumulus to edit it.

Re: Windows 10 upgrade

It’s getting unexpected data from the station, perhaps because of changed USB drivers.

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

A point about the Mono version - it’s the USB library which doesn’t work with later versions, so the issue affects Fine Offset stations and the later Oregon Scientific stations (WMR88/100/200 etc). Other stations should be fine.

Re: Wet Bulb Calibration

With 'extra sensors' selected, the second temperature reading is used simply as an extra temperature reading (with no calibration possible). With it unselected, the second temperature reading is used as the wet bulb temperature, to which the wet bulb calibration settings are applied.

Re: <#rfall> / <#r24hour> - implausibly

The last 24 hour figure is probably correct, you can use the 'today's rain' editor to correct today's rain.

If you zip up the diags folder and attach it, I’ll take a look.
