CumulusMX.service not found
« on: January 18, 2023, 01:23:47 PM »

When I started CumulusMX in mono terminal, I received an error that cumulusmx.service was not running. What did I miss?

Thanks for the guidance

It's possible that you missed setting up and enabling the CumulusMX service in systemd. Here are the steps you can follow to set up and enable the service:

Create a new file named cumulusmx.service in the /etc/systemd/system/ directory. You can use the following command to create the file:
Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/cumulusmx.servicePaste the following configuration into the file:

Code: [Select]
Description=CumulusMX weather station software

ExecStart=/usr/bin/mono CumulusMX.exe

Make sure to replace /path/to/cumulusmx/ with the actual path to your CumulusMX installation directory, and <your_username> with your username.

Save and close the file.

Enable the service by running the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl enable cumulusmx.service
Start the service by running the following command:

Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl start cumulusmx.serviceAfter completing these steps, CumulusMX should be running as a service and should start automatically on system boot. You can check the status of the service using the following command:
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl status cumulusmx.serviceIf there are any issues with the service, the output of this command should give you some indication of what went wrong.
