It's a Python script. You'd need to install a Python interpreter to run it. ;)

But, you'll also need to know how to program in Python. :geek:

Cool! Thank you! I'll look into this, though with my limited programming knowledge, I might be in over my head, haha. I'm curious whether any of these debian/ubuntu based scripts could be used in conjunction with Windows' Subsystem for Linux beta...

Python scripts are generally platform-agnostic (at least, the ones for general release are). So, not written specifically for Linux. ;)

My own Python stuff will not run on Windows as I only run them on Linux units and so didn't write them for cross-platform compatibility.

looking at the serial connection in the script
https://github.com/bkram/qnapdisplay/bl ... it__.py#L3

Code: Select all

 ser = serial.Serial('/dev/ttyS1', 1200)

oh and .. no idea what SERIAL chips QNAP sourced ... but if you are unlucky it might be the kind that windows kills
