problem to run audiomoth app


Hello, I have a problem, I have Linux 64bit - Ubuntu. I have used Audiomoth 1.1.1 configuration app. However when I downloaded 1.2.1 and 1.2.0, both start with window which is blank. There is not showed control panel. Please what I have to do? The 1.1.1 is still works well.

Thanks for pointing this out. We'll have a look.

Hi, This seems to work fine for me. Try is running straight from the AppImage. When you download the file, right click it set the Properties / Permissions to allow executing as a program, and then right click and select Run to launch the app. Can you post a screenshot of what appears.

Hi, I did it however nothing has changed. So here is a screenshot after app start. You can see blank window or transparent (in the window this is my background).


Very strange. What version of Ubuntu is this?

Does this machine have a separate GPU? There are some comments online about newer version of Electron (the platform that provides the cross platform app) not working correctly with GPU acceleration in Linux. We can make a build with this disabled and try it tomorrow.

Yes I have separate graphic card. Thank you very much for your effort.

I checked it and the app is working well! Now it is ok. Thank you again.

Great. We'll push that fix into the next official release on the website in a couple of weeks so carry on using that version for now.

  • Hi, I have purchased an AudioMoth to detect the ultrasonic sound emitted by bats. And I would like to know how can I detect i) count number of bats ii) bats' flying direction.   I am doing a project to contextualize bat data through different actuators of Arduino. Using LEDs, speakers, motors, etc to visualize bat data. For example, if frequency = 45kHz, LED will light up; if more bats, the motor will spin faster, etc. How can I do that? And can I transfer the data live, and wireless, using a raspberry pi and upload it to the cloud? Again, how can I achieve that?   Finally, is there any guide to manipulating the bat ultrasonic wav. file to human audible sound or visualize through spectrogram? Any tutorial for that? I am trying to use Adobe Audition.   Many Thanks!
  • Hi, I just wanted to check that the AudioMoth should stay with the switch in the USB/OFF position when using the configuration app? Even when you press "Configure AudioMoth" in the app? Then when ready to turn on in the field, change the switch to CUSTOM? Thanks.
  • Hello, I used to record birds (video+sound) as a hobby in my garden using a raspberry pi computer (+ a camera and a microphone attached to the Pi) and a motion detection software. I stumbled upon the audiomoth, ordered one and I wish to record birds for now. What set up should I use? Any advises welcome... Thank you.
