IMON Soundgraph VFD/LCD with XBMCbuntu

This is a short guide to setting up the an IMON Soundgraph VFD/LCD on XBMCbuntu Eden 11.0.  XBMCbuntu is based on Ubuntu 11.10 so this guide may also work for 11.10 although I have not tried it.

Open a terminal(either via SSH or Openbox) and run the following commands:

First install LCDproc:
sudo apt-get install lcdproc

Now edit the config file:
sudo nano /etc/LCDd.conf

change line 53 from

*NOTE: in nano to go to a line press CTRL+w then CTRL+t and enter 53 and press enter after editing the file press CTRL+x then y and then ENTER to close and save the file.

The IMON driver for some reason hangs on shutdown so run the following to fix the problem:

sudo mv /etc/rc6.d/K60LCDd /etc/rc6.d/K99LCDd

sudo mv /etc/rc0.d/K60LCDd /etc/rc0.d/K99LCDd
