System Pop Ups

We have noted difficulties when using Linux distributions in supressing pop ups on the screen relating to system updates. Please ensure you test your device or completely disable pop ups to avoid customers contacting you with issues.

Installing Fusion Signage on Linux

  • We recommend using the latest Ubuntu distribution however any Linux distribution should work.
  • Once you have set up your media player with your preferred Linux distribution, navigate to Terminal
  • You will need to have Curl installed, so run this command:
sudo apt install curl
  • Once Curl is installed, you can run the following command to get the latest version of Fusion Signage
curl | bash
  • Fusion Signage will install and run once complete
  • Confirm that FUSE is installed on your device
sudo apt install fuse

Setup your device

  • Make sure your device automatically logs in
  • Set the Time & Date correctly for the timezone you will be installing the device in
  • Ensure your device is connected to the internet via ethernet or WiFi
  • Access the Power settings to ensure your device doesn't turn off the display or go to sleep after a set period
  • Turn off automatic updates so you don't have pop ups.

Bios Settings

  • Access your media players BIOS (usually pressing Del button while media player is booting).
  • There are many different bios UI's so it is difficult to assist with each. Use this as a general guide
  • Ensure the clock is set to the correct time and date (taking into account time zone if being shipped nationally/internationally).

Autoboot on Power

  • Find the setting to have the media player autoboot when connected to a power source.
  • This will assist when there are power outages to ensure the media player turns back on.
  • You can confirm if this has been set by unplugging the power supply and reconnecting it to see if it automatically boots.

Alarm Wake

  • Find the setting to turn the media player on at a specific time.
  • This will help if the media player is turned off, and doesn’t have a power outage to activate the autoboot on power
  • Set this to a time before the screens need to be on.

Adding the device to your customers account

Once you have the identifier log into your customers account, or provide them with the identifier

  • Add a Screen under Screens section in the top right
  • Select an available licence
  • Give the screen a name
  • Add it to their account
