Somebody suggested I necropost in this thread with my question. Please excuse the new username, I forgot my old one so decided to just make a new account:

So did anyone successfully get the weather app installed from here onto the aura with the latest firmware? I managed to telnet into my device, I extracted the python libraries from here and have the app (all the root files from the site) extracted in my .kobo folder (which, I assume, is the successor of the .apps folder mentioned in the link) but am at a loss about what I should do next. Running

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=mnt/onboard/.kobo/python/pygamelibs/ python


results in a file not found message. Running weather.py from the bitbucket link using SSH results in a "Permission denied" message even though it looks like I'm in as root and I don't know what the equivalent of SUDO is for running files using SSH...

Yeah, I'm something of a noob that's patient enough to get somewhere. I would appreciate any help or advice with this.

My device is a Kobo Aura running the latest firmware and yes, I backed it up to a 4gb microsd using this method before trying any of this.

What if you use the absolute path to python? I'm guessing it would be this:
Code:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=mnt/onboard/.kobo/python/pygamelibs/ /mnt/onboard/.kobo/python/bin/python
One question for you. How did you make a backup of your Aura? I thought they didn't use internal micro SD cards.

Thanks I encountered another error, though:



Even though I connected my kobo via USB and was staring right at that file right where the shell said it should be. Any idea why it's complaining?

Also, to answer your question, I just followed the instructions in the thread. I guess it does have an internal micro SD card?

I tried getting the hello world python script to run but I get this error message.

Hello, world
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "hello.py", line 13, in <module>
call(["/bin/show_pic", "/tmp/image.jpg"])
File "/mnt/onboard/.python/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 493, in call
return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait()
File "/mnt/onboard/.python/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 679, in __init__
errread, errwrite)
File "/mnt/onboard/.python/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 1228, in _execute_child
raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I thought it may have been from one of the firmware updates so I got a copy of an older SD card image from Davidfor, thank you by the way.

Thank you for any help.

I managed to copy the image.jpg and open it on my computer, looks like it was generated fine. So I'm thinking it may be an issue with the call to show pic.
