Raspberry Pi Tellstick

Currently, there's no binary available for the armhf architecture (i.e. the one used by Raspberrian). It's quite simple to get the source code and compile it.

This is likelly already intalled, just a precaution

apt-get install libftdi1

Set-up the key

wget http://download.telldus.se/debian/telldus-public.key
apt-key add telldus-public.key
sudo apt-get update

Install build-essentials

sudo apt-get install build-essential

Add the source locations

sudo cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/telldus.list <<EOF
deb http://download.telldus.com/debian/ stable main
deb-src http://download.telldus.com/debian/ stable main
sudo apt-get update

Install packages

sudo apt-get build-dep telldus-core
sudo apt-get install cmake
sudo apt-get install libconfuse-dev
sudo apt-get install libftdi-dev
sudo apt-get install help2man

Create a temp dir

mkdir -p ~/telldus-tmp
cd ~/telldus-tmp

Download the source code and start the compiler

apt-get --compile source telldus-core

Install packages

sudo dpkg --install *.deb

Delete the source code and compiled programs

cd ..
rm -rf ~/telldus-temp

If you get a syslog message saying the group plugdev is missing, remove the user and group entries from tellstick.conf
