    Default How to install Devolo Cockpit monitor?

    I need to do some configuration on my Devolo Homeplug network and have downloaded their Linux application, called Cockpit. However, I can't figure out how to install this file, which is named software-dlan-cockpit-linux-v3.run

    Has anyone come across this app before, or can someone tell me how you install a .run file?

    Hi
    You need to chmod the file so it executes;
    Code:
    chmod 755 software-dlan-cockpit-linux-v3.run
    ./software-dlan-cockpit-linux-v3.run

    The chmod bit worked, but when I tried the second line, I got this:

    Error: this system does not have dpkg, cannot install

    Good morning

    The two lines you need to type are:
    chmod +x software-dlan-cockpit-linux-v3-2.run
    sudo ./software-dlan-cockpit-linux-v3-2.run

    I found them in a german forum and now is working perfect.

    A better way is to download the software dlancockpit in the .deb format at the following URL:
    Index of /linux/apt/pool/main/d/devolo-dlan-cockpit
    Download the following installation file in .deb format:
    devolo-dlan-cockpit_3.2-0_amd64.deb
    Then transform it in a .rpm file with alien:
    Code:
    alien -rc devolo-dlan-cockpit_3.2-0_amd64.deb
    The resulting file is:
    devolo-dlan-cockpit-3.2-1.x86_64.rpm
    Make it executable:
    Code:
    chmod +x devolo-dlan-cockpit-3.2-1.x86_64.rpm
    Then install it:
    Code:
    rpm -ivh devolo-dlan-cockpit-3.2-1.x86_64.rpm
    dlancockpit requires Adobe Air which is no longer supported for Linux systems. So you need to download an old version at the following URL:
    Archived Adobe AIR SDK version

    Download and install the following file:
    Adobe AIR 2.6.0 Linux (15.4 MB)

    After that, a problem appears. When I launch dlancockpit, only the window of that application is displayed, but nothing appears in it. There is a service which cannot be started and returns an error code of 1. The corresponding script file is /etc/init.d/devolonetsvc.
    As I am very far from being a specialist, I cannot find where is the error. But I succeeded in an inelegant way by typing this line of code:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/devolonetsvc
    and after clicking on the devolo dlan cockpit icon. And it works!

    If someone could help me in solving this problem, I would be very grateful.
    I have made this try on openSUSE 11.1 x86_64.
