    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), free version:
    
    wget http://www.dbpoweramp.com/install/AssetUPnP-Linux-x86.tar.gz
    
    or 64 bit:
    
    wget http://www.dbpoweramp.com/install/AssetUPnP-Linux-x64.tar.gz
    
    Download asset (32 bit), premium registered version:
    
    wget http://secure.dbpoweramp.com/downloadorder.aspx?product=1&ordernum=123456789 -O asset.tar.gz
    
    or 64 bit, premium registered version:
    
    wget http://secure.dbpoweramp.com/downloadorder.aspx?ordernum=123456789 -O asset.tar.gz
    
    (where 123456789 is your actual order number)
    
    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
