RPi-Monitor - Does it install?

RE: RPi-Monitor - Does it install?

Many thanks again for the suggestions ....

Just to answer the most recent questions ....

I have tried all of the commands with both sudo and as root (same results each time) and I have tried sudo apt-get update.

The interesting thing for me is that when using sudo apt-get update I get the output:

rpitc@rpitc-f97de1b5:/etc/apt/apt.conf.d$ sudo apt-get update
E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/https could not be found.
N: Is the package apt-transport-https installed?

I suspect this is because I can't install this dependency ... which is because the RPi2 doesn't find the packages at

The RPi2 definitley has internet access (it is currently displaying a series of monitoring pages from our remote data centre).

I appreciate that this is probably a quirk and may not be a generic problem; but it would be nice to get it working.

I think the best thing may be to put this to one side till the updated image is out and I will revisit it at that time.

Many thanks to everyone who read or added to this topic.

Hi Gary,

I'm not sure what to tell you, I've got it working for me...for anyone else reading this thread here is what I did. I just reflashed rpitc on my RPI2 and used these exact steps:

Update your Repos:
sudo apt-get update

Install dependencies:
sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev librrds-perl libhttp-daemon-perl libjson-perl libipc-sharelite-perl libfile-which-perl

If you get an error when installing the dependencies run this (I didn't get an error but I ran it anyway...didn't seem to hurt):
sudo apt-get install -f

Activate https transport for apt and add certificate authority:
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates

Install public key to trust RPi-Monitor repository:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 2C0D3C0F

Execute the following command to add RPi-Monitor into your list of repository:
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rpimonitor.list

Install RPi-Monitor, execute the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rpimonitor

After installation or upgrade you should excute the following command to update information about upgradable packages:
sudo /usr/share/rpimonitor/scripts/

Once I did all these steps I then went to my newly installed rpi-monitor (change your RPiIpAddress to your own RPI IP):


Hope it helps anyone else coming to this thread.
