    Debian Linux Asset Specifics

    This Asset build is for Debian, but it will also run on other Linux versions

    Installation details

    To install it is done through the SSH command-line, for headless devices, install 'Putty' then connect to the device to access command-shell.

    Code:
    Create a folder for Asset: 
    
    cd /usr/bin
    sudo mkdir asset
    sudo chmod 777 asset
    cd asset
    
    Download asset (32 bit) on your PC and transfer to your linux device, then unzip:
    extract it:
    
    tar -zxvf *.gz
    rm *.gz
    
    Run Asset:
    
    cd /usr/bin/asset/Asset-R6-Linux-x64-registered/bin
    ./AssetUPnP
    
    Once running it will show Presentation URL   type this into a web browser on any computer on the same network, example:
    
    http://192.168.1.13:45537
    
    Then click 'configure' to specify the options
    Setting Asset to start automatically

    Code:
    sudo crontab -e
    press the down arrow until the cursor is right at the bottom (on a blank line, press enter if not on a blank line)
    type:
    
    @reboot /usr/bin/asset/Asset-R6-Linux-x64-registered/bin/AssetUPnP
    
    Press keys CTRL + X   choose Y to save, press enter
    
    restart system:  
    
    sudo reboot
    
    The web log-in will be the same as when run manually, if at a later date you cannot find this address (or port), log into the pi and type:
    
    ifconfig
    
    this will show on the inet addr   for eth0, take the shown ip address and:
    
    http://x.x.x.x:45537
    
    Where x.x.x.x is the address shown
    
    
    
    To find the port asset is using:
    
    sudo netstat -pln
    
    look for the lines with AssetUPnP on the end, it should be shown as 0.0.0.0.0:45537  (for configuration)  (as well as 0.0.0.0.0:26125 which is used by UPnP devices  and 0.0.0.0.0:1900 for broadcast)
    The configuration files for Asset are stored: ~/.dBpoweramp

    Storing your data files in another location


    Prior to running Asset, set an environment var _APPDATA_OVERRIDE pointing it to a folder where you want your Asset data stored.
    Example:
    Code:
    _APPDATA_OVERRIDE=/path/to/asset/data ./AssetUPnP
    or
    Code:
    export _APPDATA_OVERRIDE=/path/to/asset/data
    ./AssetUPnP
    If you're starting Asset on system startup using crontab as shown in the post above, insert the environment var before the command that starts Asset:
    Code:
    @reboot _APPDATA_OVERRIDE=/path/to/asset/data /usr/bin/asset/Asset-R6-Linux-x64-registered/bin/AssetUPnP

      Removing Asset from crontab:
      Code:
      sudo crontab -l | fgrep -v AssetUPnP > /tmp/crontab-asset.txt
      sudo crontab /tmp/crontab-asset.txt
      rm /tmp/crontab-asset.txt

        New simplified guide, using install scripts for Asset R6.6 and newer-
        Installing Installing is done through the Linux terminal command-line. For headless devices, install 'Putty' then connect to the device to access command-shell. Do determine which version of Asset is compatible with your system: uname -m Possible output: i686 : x86 32-bit x86_64 : x86 64-bit (x64) armv7, aarch64 : ARM
