I was just looking at Domoticz since I have a fresh RPi and was curious of their install steps. I haven’t tried it yet, but if it’s correct, we need a better installer!
The “easy” way
After setting up the operating system of your choice, you are now ready to install Domoticz. Assuming your Linux is Debian-based, like Raspbian or Ubuntu, installing Domoticz is extremely easy. Just open a terminal window and execute this command.
Just point your browser to the IP address of your Raspberry Pi, and use port 8080. From your Pi’s browser you could surf to http://127.0.0.1:8080.
That’s about as ridiculously easy as it gets!
EDIT: I navigated to that link and found the reason it’s so easy is that “install.domoticz.com” is a bash script that installs everything kinda like how we were trying before. It’s got a nice interface on the installer too, so that might be something worth considering including.
@bkenobi, to whom are you answering?
If it’s about my post - it’s ok that service didn’t start on Linux if it was x86 machine, because during my experiments I made docker image only for arm platform to run it on RPi. It won’t take a lot of efforts to do the same things for x86 platform.
I wasn’t referring to any post. I was just stating that I find services difficult to work with in general due to how Linux operates. I’m sure it’s just my skill level showing and nothing about the project.
