Linux player profile settings

I am trying to associate a Linux player to a display settings profile. I see there is no Linux profile by default and I can’t assign it to one of the other profiles.

I also see that when I schedule a layout it doesn’t collect it for a long time.
Is there another way to set the collect interval, XMR public address and other options for Linux players?

I just finished installing a Linux server and followed the instructions in the user manual on he web site. How can it be I have version 1.8.9?

As it would appear that you have installed an earlier version, you would need to follow our guides for

There is also a section on upgrading in this guide: Xibo CMS with Docker on Ubuntu 18.04 which may prove useful.

Hi Natasha,

I have installed the latest version. I think you should update the instructions page so other users will not install version 1.8.9.

Thanks so much for your assistance.

Kind regards,

No problem :+1:

Can I ask what page you used that installed this earlier version as I cannot seem to see an issue with the Xibo for Docker on Linux installation page that would download version 1.8.9?

Many thanks
