Reply To: Setting up firefly in Ubuntu Linux



I tried making sure it’s running, but it wont start because of the errors?

EDIT: Did a reinstall and started it, was able to get into the web page. Under the configuration tab, whenever I change something and mash the save button, it says ERROR:500 . Then when I go to another tab, it saved whatever I changed.

Also, it says Bonjour isn’t running, is that a problem or should I be fine without it?

Also, the share shows up on the network, but when I try to connect on my laptop, it asks for a password (which I set it up to do), but rejects the password regardless of what I type.
