(FWIW I needed to run apt-get install automake for autogen to be available.)

Thank you so much! This script really takes pain out of doing things right.
However, in line 20, maybe mkdir ~/tmp would be better?
Thanks again<3

@Molin-L good to hear. You're probably right on the mkdir command. I'm not a Linux expert, but ./tmp in the home directory looks good to me.

Just add that the file with the password (necessary to activate the viewer) is located in /usr/local/etc/istatserver/istatserver.conf

Hello everyone,

I've followed this perfect installation manual on 3 Raspberries and there is one that doesn't show its temperature sensor... I don't understand why.
the istatserver.conf is exactly the same on the 3 computers.
Do you have any ideas ?
Thank you
Have a nice day.
