So a while ago I bough a Logitech Harmony remote. And so far aside from one or two things that need minor tweeks it literally controls my EVERYTHING. Now after learning my way around the remote I finally looked up a Linux port for it. So I do not have to boot into Windows every time I want to change or update something on the remote. But after installing tar ball and binary options I still get no communication with the remote from my Linux box.

Argg so anyone else doing this? If so do you have a 688? Is it communicating?

Here is the link to the howto I found. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=781059

Regards

I take it this is a USB device ?

If you unplug it, wait 10 seconds, replug it, then run:
Code:
dmesg | tail -n 20

what is the output ?

Success!


The second paste is the command that Adam Williamson of Fedora on G+ told me to run. I look at both the Conrodance man and help and what I find is way over my head. And what the instructions at that link say is that running Connectivity.EZHex from the Harmony website should establish the connection and cause everything to work as normal. Normal meaning that the Harmony would then work with my choice Linux distro through the browser. And NOT through the Harmony software...

For whatever reason I did not think at first to search the repos I have for Concordance. So I installed the tarball which I did not get to work on any level really. Then I thought to install the related packages one by one from the repo. I guess it might be a good idea to undo all that I had done up until searching the repo for Concordance?

Sorry for not seeing this until now... Regards.

If you still require assistance, can you link to whatever tutorials you were following.

I can not make it work like in those tutorials. I am just now recalling some info on how to install tarballs. I think I can handle that with out further assistance.

Okay, good luck and sorry I couldn't be much help, but these things are kinda hard if you haven't got the hardware.

Completely removing the other config and starting over with the congruity install worked. However the Web UI is very disorienting. At least Pepperment got it done for this very complicated hardware and specifics.
