    Very nice John.

    Move these steps up to after #14

    18. wget hxxp://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.770_all.deb

    19. sudo dpkg --install webmin_1.770_all.deb

    20. sudo apt-get -f install ‘To fix some unmet dependancies’


    To ==>

    and change them to: (xx to tt) - this part is only for webmin - install it before MONO
    step #16 is important and needs to be done before webmin is installed

    15 - wget hxxp://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.770_all.deb

    16 - apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions python

    17 - dpkg --install webmin_1.770_all.deb

    Remove:

    30. sudo apt-get install libttspico-utils ‘this doesn’t work omit’

    After Cesar's steps above I would recommend shutting down Homeseer via the GUI and doing the following depending on the network connection.

    Before moving on.

    Are you planning on using a regular network cable connection or wireless?

    It is understood that you can utilize wireless for your RPi2 Homeseer automation service. Personally I wouldn't put an automation server on a wireless network. That is me though.

    What I did and you have a choice to do this or not.

    1 - utilize a static IP (pick a suitable IP address out of the range of your DHCP scope).
    2 - gave the RPi2 a name

    #1 and #2 should probably be at the top of the list. You can also configure a DHCP assigned IP via MAC address. It is easier to manage your RPi2 Homeseer device with a static IP configuration.

    3 - configure Homeseer to auto start with the reboot of the RPi2 ( couple of ways to do this).

            I'm redoing my RPI2 setup from scratch and have found this thread to be immensely helpful. Thank you so much for creating this great resource! I know I'll have a much cleaner setup now thanks to this thread.

            One thing I'm missing is getting HS3 to load automatically when the Pi boots. What's the recommended way of doing this?

            Any guidance would be much appreciated.

            Thanks!

            Brian

              You might add a section on disabling the power-managment features of the distro. I believe it is called APCI(?) or something to that effect. Basically, you want the Pi to run as a server with no hibernate/suspend functionality.
