Hi all, I have upgraded to a Pi4 with PiAware 5.0.

Could someone please advise the command lines required to install and configure kplex?

I have read every page at Stripydog.

Any help appreciated thanks.

I'm not familiar with piaware but a quick google suggests it's based on raspbian so you'd want to do something like this:
 cd /tmp
sudo dpkg -i kplex_1.4-1_armhf.deb
sudo wget -O /lib/systemd/system/kplex.service http://www.stripydog.com/download/kplex.service

Then you'd want to configure it by editing /etc/kplex.conf but to help with that I'd need to know what you want to multiplex to what.

*After* it's configured you can make sure it'll start on boot:
sudo systemctl enable kplex
...and then start it up...
sudo systemctl start kplex

Hi Keith, I would like kplex to start on boot. Can I run sudo systemctl enable kplex whilst kplex is running, or should I sudo systemctl stop kplex first please?

Regards, Grant.

Apologies for the delay in replying.

Yes no problem with systemctl enable while kplex is running.  enable will only enable kplex for start at next boot, not start it so you should be fine
