POSBox software only setup in Odoo 9
I have a NUC box with Debian 8.3 and Odoo 9 nightly installed, running a POS with CRM.
For connecting barcode scanner and printer (both supported by POSbox), I have tried to follow the instructions at
but it's not clear to me how I should start the server (with the same port 8069 as my main Odoo server) and why it has to be so complicated - can't I just activate the needed modules in my main openerp.config?
Following the guide, I get an error
fatal: Not a git repository: '/home/pi/odoo/.git'
However, startup continues and I see an error that the printer is not connected (which is OK because I'm still setting up the system):
openerp.addons.hw_escpos.controllers.main: disconnected : Printer Not Found
The hw_status page mentioned in the docs is then not found, as expected.
However, starting up with a modified configuration (using the "-c" switch) with changed xmlrpc port 8068 (and different log file), logging stops at the git error, but the page http://localhost:8068/hw_proxy/status then works and I see my connected USB peripherals!
This is quite confusing, I hope I'm doing everything right, will try with the real hardware tomorrow.
I'll issue a pull request for the documentation later if everything works out.
