We are releasing an experimental beta of FrontlineSMS Version 2 for Linux. Linux users make up a very small percentage of our user base, so we are not able to devote significant resources to supporting it. However, if you do have feedback and comments, please post them here.
You can download the installer from our Beta Products page.
Thanks in advance
Have not looked just copied but it gives an error
gzip: sfx_archive.tar.gz: not in gzip format
I am sorry, but the installer file seems to be corrupted.
If you downloaded that file please try it again. If you
transfer that file with ftp please make sure that you are
using binary mode.
Will give some positive feedback once I have more info.
CentOS release 6.2 (Final)
very new so this is a share rather that a question.
When I launch the installer the Setup window opens with no content and freezes. This is the message from the terminal
Oct 1, 2012 9:40:41 AM sun.awt.X11.XBaseWindow init
WARNING: Exception during peer initialization
What am I missing?
Are you going to make the new version of FrontlineSMS not dependent on X11 , this way we can put them up headless and connect to them via a web browser, just asking we only run linux on our server and never load X but rather make our stuff web centric this enables people to access them from any platform.
Thanks for the suggestion Steven. The ability to run in this configuration would certainly be useful to some linux users. We'll have a chat internally and get back to you.
I have used the linux version 2.1.3 on my Ubuntu 12.04. It installed without any problems.
A couple of comments though:
- Installed asks if I want to create link in /usr/local/bin directory, but if I am running as unprivileged user, it will not create that.
- Along with Register, Skip registration options, there should be the option of "Already registered" for already registered users :-)
Version 2 Ran perfectly, recognized my usb based gsm modem (Huawei E153) automatically. I was able to send receive messages with it's help. This version doesn't seem to have the same functionality as version 1, hence I am still working with version 1.
