A file is missing from the source, "", which makes the compilation fail if doxygen is installed.

One way to fix this would be to add the file from and copy to the correct place before building.

Telldus does not seem to be hurrying to fix this themselves:

rubaka commented on 2015-04-02 11:18

"patch" is also a dependency. Please update PKGBUILD.

Works great om RPI2, 'armv7h' could be added to arch=

tuusjr commented on 2014-10-29 22:52

Systemd complains that telldus.service is marked as executable. I guess it would be cleaner to remove the executable flag from that file then.

SciBoy commented on 2014-08-02 12:04

The problem I had was also the parallel compile make-flag (-j(n)). Please do what devjoa said and update the PKGBUILD.

Package updated, thanks to guzzard's contribution.

jrylander commented on 2014-01-31 22:01

I added 'armv7h' for use on a Beaglebone black. Seems to work. Tnx a million for your work!

devjoa commented on 2014-01-28 22:09

Hi, it would be great if you could add the following to the PKGBUILD, as I had problems with my -j5 make flag.

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-27 21:35

Just checked and it compiles properly on a newly installed system. is you system up to date ?
Could you post the build logs to a pastebin so I can have more information ?

SciBoy commented on 2014-01-27 08:21

I am unable to compile. I get:
make[2]: *** Ingen regel för att skapa målet ”client/”, som behövs av ”tdtool/tdtool”. Stannar.

Which is swedish for: 'No rule for creating target "client/", which is needed by "tdtool/tdtool". Stopping.'

Any ideas?

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-12 16:23

Oh, my bad, upstream uses 'plugdev' indeed. A previous maintainer of this package changed it to 'uucp' which is correct according to

I'll look into reloading udev rules as a post-install script.
Glad to see it's working for you, and thanks for the feedback on this package.

chrisq commented on 2014-01-12 16:12

Thanks, yes that helped.

FYI, the plugdev-group message comes from the telldusd binary, it is not referenced in any of my config files, so I think that too is from upstream.

My problem was partly caused by the udev not reloading its config after I installed the package, so ftdi_sio was loaded while tdadmin wasn't. I guess that would have been fixed by a reboot or udevadm control --reload-rules.

Thanks for all your help with this package :)

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-12 13:52

In short, telldusd should have sufficients rights to read/write on the /dev/whatever your tellstick is registered to.

This package ships with udev rules (/etc/udev/rules.d/05-tellstick.rules) that make sure you can control the stick with the 'uucp' (not 'plugdev') group ; this is an upstream choice.

Just in case, a few values from my own setup :
$ lsusb | grep -i telldus
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1781:0c31 Multiple Vendors Telldus TellStick Duo
$ sudo lsof -p `pgrep telldusd` | grep -i '/dev'
telldusd 16248 root 9u CHR 189,3 0t0 68360 /dev/bus/usb/001/004
$ ls -lha /dev/bus/usb/001/004
crw-rw-r-- 1 root uucp 189, 3 Jan 12 14:29 /dev/bus/usb/001/004

I hope this helps.

chrisq commented on 2014-01-10 19:52

Also it seems like I lack permissions when running telldusd, what user= and group= values should I use in tellstick.conf with this package?
When setting group/user=root, running tdadmin manually and telldusd --nodaemon everything works.
Any ideas?

chrisq commented on 2014-01-10 18:45

Hi, it seems like it depends on the group plugdev, but it is not created, so the daemon fails. I could of course just add this group, but it should probably be the responsibility of the package right?

[root@puppeteer ~]# telldusd --nodaemon
telldusd daemon starting up
Group plugdev could not be found

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-09 20:56

Chriq: Should be fixed now. Good luck with your lights !

chrisq commented on 2014-01-08 23:52

obiesmans: Great, thank you for the quick reply.
I won't be living in darkness for long then :)

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-08 19:14

Chrisq> Fails me me too an a brand new install. Looks like it doesn't link with -pthreads. I am working on fixing this right now.

This did not compile against latest libftdi. I adopted the package an reverted to libftdi-compat for now.

kimrasmussen commented on 2013-11-19 14:21

The current PKGBUILD doesn't work as it doesn't define a package() function.

Here is a fixed version:

# Maintainer: Andreas Johansson <stdin dot se>
# Contributor: Peter Hultqvist <endnode dot se>
pkgdesc="TellStick application and library"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'armv6h')
depends=('libftdi' 'confuse')
makedepends=('gcc' 'make' 'cmake')

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/arch-config.patch
patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/arch-sbin-fix.patch
patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/unistd-include.patch

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install
install -D -m0755 "${srcdir}/telldusd" "${pkgdir}/etc/rc.d/telldusd" || return 1
install -D -m0755 "${srcdir}/telldus.service" "${pkgdir}/etc/systemd/system/telldus.service" || return 1

Working fine on a raspberry pi now that armv6h is in the PKGBUILD. I used this systemd service:

/etc/systemd/system/telldus.service (enable using: systemctl enable telldus.service)

# Telldusd service unit file
Description=Telldus-core service telldusd

ExecStop=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID
