    Raspberry PI installation made too easy with extra feature.

    Hi, I wanted to make a simple Image to make the raspberry pi user hassle free installation. Here i have uploaded a Rasbian Lite Image with the feature. This ISO will work on Raspberry PI 2/3. Its assume to completed whole process within 30 minutes only.

    1> Raspbian jessie lite image with SSH enabled.
    2> Dump1090-Mutability1.15 installed with openstreet map
    3> Receiver performance in web & graph
    4> Flightradar24 client ready

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1i5y...w?usp=drivesdk

    Just download the 570mb file then extract with 7z software, it will came out as a 2GB file. Write this file with win32diskimager soft.

    After wring the image to SD, put it into your raspberry PI along with RTL dongle & power it up. Connect the LAN port to your local net, then find the IP raspberry PI got. In my case, i got 192.168.1.105

    You don't need to connect any display , open putty soft & ssh on the IP. User name is "pi" password is "raspberry" Now you have to do some basic configuration to match disk size, timezone etc. This image having User name, password, time zone is in default config.

    type sudo -i to login as root.

    Type sudo raspi-config then go to localization to change to your local time advance option to resize partition to maximum size available.

    then run sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade to update your OS.

    You may ask to run sudo apt-get autoremove to remove some unused package like " itcl3 libtcl8.6 tcl tcl-tls tcl8.6 tcllib tclx8.4". Please don't run this command if you willing to install piaware later. There are piaware support package.

    Here in my test device, ip is 192.168.1.105. So my dump1090 map link is. You should put your own IP accordingly.

    http://192.168.1.105/dump1090/gmap.html

    Dump1090 Map.jpg

    You will find my location(23.0000, 90.0000) with 150, 300, 450km circle. So you need to change to your la-lon according to your location with this command
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure dump1090-mutability

    Now go
    http://192.168.1.105/install

    to complete link performance & graph. Then you will ask username password, email address to complete this portal. Here you need adjust your timezone, distance unit(imperial/Metric) also. I did the config as Metric to show the distance in kilometer.

    Graphs.jpg

    http://192.168.1.105/graphs.php
    to check the if the graphs load properly. It may took some time to load it completely.

    Graphs-2.png

    Go to
    http://192.168.1.102/admin
    for further edit on graphs. here you will ask your user password to login.

    The web tool, performance, graph tool credit goes to Joe Prochazka.
    https://github.com/jprochazka/adsb-receiver

    Now go to for FR24 config
    http://192.168.1.105:8754

    I have put a dummy key, so you will find key error. If you already have a key, just click settings then put it & save it. If you dont have a key, please mail to support@fr24.com with your lat-lon they will provide a key with radar name. Here i have used my T-VGHS14 key to demonstrate.

    From your FR24 status page, please change to your Lat-Lon as shown in this image link

    FR24 Finish.jpg

    Now go to
    http://192.168.1.105:30053

    you will find this page. If you already have a PF key, you just put your lat-lon along with key, in next page, 127.0.0.1 & port 30005. Thus Pfclient finishes. Here i used my old key to demonstrate. You can make new key or use old key with lat-lon

    PFClient.jpg

    If you want to install piaware on it. follow this page. As most of the support package already installed, your piaware will be install in very short time than usual.

    http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/install
    After install, click the link with account log in
    http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/claim


    If you want to install radarbox24 client then use this command
    sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://apt.rb24.com/inst_rbfeeder.sh)"
    As like piaware, you need to claim the key with your account login, you will ask to put your location name/lat-lon to complete
    If you have a previous RB24 key, you just change the key editing this file. In case of using old key, you dont need to claim again.
    sudo nano /etc/rbfeeder.ini


    If you want to install Adsbexchange.com client you need to put this
    git clone https://github.com/jprochazka/adsb-exchange.git
    cd adsb-exchange
    chmod +x setup.sh
    sudo ./setup.sh
    cd ..

    Hi Zahidulhasan

    Downloaded image, wrote on microSD card, and booted.
    Dump1090-mutability, Web Portal/Graphs, and Planefinder data feeder works good if instructions are followed.

    However following requires instructions to be corrected:

    1) Image Writing Problem:
    The downloaded file is in 7zip format. The instruction says to write it using Win32DiskImager with file type *.* . The Win32DiskImager does write the .7z file and shows write completed successfully, but when the microSD card is inserted into Pi and powered up, Pi does not boot. Checked microSD Card on "Minitools Partition Wizard", found nothing is written on microSD card, no partitions and no formatting, only "Uanallocated Space". Tried twice, same result.

    After I unzipped the file using 7zip, an extension-less file was created. I then had to manually add .img at the end of file name.
    After all this I wrote .img file to microSD card, slipped in Pi, and powered up. Now the Pi booted normally.

    2) FR24 Feeder Configuration Problem:
    The FR24 feeder does not connect to FR24 server even after entering & saving the sharing key on <ip of pi>:8754/settings.html . Reason is missing Latitude & Longitude information in FR24 feeder software. The settings.html page does NOT have entry fields for latitude and longitude parameters. Only after I run following command and provided all necessary data including email, sharing key, Latitude, Longitude, height of antenna etc, it connected to FR24 server and started uploading data.
    Code:
    sudo fr24feed --signup
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed
    BEFORE RUNNING THE COMMAND sudo fr24feed --signup

    Dear Sir, thank you for your test. I am feeling honored.

    I have wrote that .7z file need to be extract first. As it is come as a unknown file after extract, its need to burn as unknown file size(*.*). You burn with .ISO ext, that's also ok. I think i should edit the post to go with rename the file

    For FR24 lat-lon change issue, FR24 status page, you can change it. I have tried this change, it worked perfectly.

    Can you try this feature ?

    Thanks & regards,

    Hi Zahidul and abcd567

    I'm a total novice with Raspberry Pi and Raspian but I've got to start somewhere. I once had an IT tutor who said the best way to debug things was to have someone who doesn't know or understand the process to follow the instructions. I'll report back on how I go.

    Cheers - Peter
