      xteve.de/

      Admittedly, Yes I am a major Linux noob, so that's probably my problem.

      I 'installed'/started Xteve as root and realized this was not recommended. How can I undo what I did? I used Winscp to delete the .xteve folder it created in root. But now, when I 'reinstall' it, after I go to to provided host/port, IP:34400, it takes to me an xml looking page w/ txt and no gui.

      I think I need help installing this as a 'regular' user. I created a 'dawg' account, but how would I install the xteve bin file as dawg. I tried, but says dawg doesn't have access to certain folders. I'll have to re-run it for the error msg.
    • If you executed it as root, that is your problem.

      Do you have a user on your NAS, or just the root user?

      The instructions are pretty clear...

      github.com/xteve-project/xTeVe…n-other-operating-systems

      The xTeVe binary must be started in the terminal.
      • Open a terminal
      • Change path to the binary
      cd /path/to/xteve/folder/
      • Set permission to execute the file
      chmod +x xteve
      • Start xTeVe
      ./xteveIf

      you're doing that as root, that's why you're having permission issues (this is why you should only use root, when you really need it)
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

      Thats my problem, sorry if this is extremely newbie Q, but how do I do it. Check out my screenshot (from windows pc) - imgur.com/q3zztzs
      1 - I Used Winscp to copy the binary into a 'xteve' folder I created as root
      2 - I have my stevedawg85 account added into various groups
      3 - I used terminal to follow those steps but it's not allowed

      The xml you get without /web is normal behavior.
      Thanks, you are right, I did eventually get in and play with it some. But I still want to figure out the install as non-root. Because it seems to randomly crash.

      Well if you created the folder with root.. You need to put it in a folder that your user created rather than root

      to remove the xteve folder you created as root (keep in mind you'll have to be root to do this)

      rm -R /path/to/folder

      Just keep in mind that is also going to delete any contents of that folder as well.
