FA path directory?

Using SwiftByte.com steps for Dump1090 and Piaware (Ubuntu 14.04) to finish requires keying your FlightAware login name. What director/subdirectory path is used?

“~/build/piaware-builder/package$”. I get : “command not found”.

Carl TIA!

Not sure what you are trying to do, but maybe you are looking for these commands? Note that no path needs to be specified.

sudo piaware-config -user <YOUR FLIGHTAWARE LOGIN> -password
sudo /etc/init.d/piaware restart


Thanks… So the “command not found” is coming from error in my FA nom or?


The only place that “cd ~/build/piaware_builder/package” appears in the Swiftbyte instructions [SwiftByte.Website] is during building of Piaware.

In fact it appears in the command line “cd ~/build/piaware_builder/package” in this set of instructions:

cd ~/build
git clone https://github.com/flightaware/piaware_builder.git
cd ~/build/piaware_builder
cd ~/build/piaware_builder/package
dpkg-buildpackage -b

It you have successfully built Piaware, I don’t understand why you think that command has anything to do with registering your FA name - that is a totally different command as indicated by mgunther.

So where are you with installing dump1090 and Piaware? We can help but need to know how far you have got.
