I bought Exagear Desktop for my Pi 3 this weekend. I payed for it and was emailed the licence key. I first attempted to install exagear via the Add/Remove Software program in the Pi's start menu. I did update my packages before hand, if that helps. I ran all the commands in the email that the licence key was sent on, but I got a error message "actool: The server has failed to process the request; HTTP status is 500." when I attempted to run the command "sudo -E /opt/exagear/bin/actool" I double check to see if the licence key is in the /opt/exagear/bin/actool directory and it is. But when I reboot, the key disappears.
So I followed the 'purge' commands listed at the end of the user-guide.pdf in the /opt/exagear/share/doc directory then reinstall by reupdating the packages and using the 'sudo apt-get install exagear-desktop' command, which is successfull, but still won't activate and I cant even run the lousy trial version.
I then relise that the original install may have been an earlier version for some reason because I had a folder entitled 'raspbian-8' and after the reinstall I have 'raspbian-9'. I don't know if that should be an issue or not, but it seems to be fixed now.
So when I emailed eltechs.com for support, I got a very generic answer, which I had already tried. I have not heard back from them yet, so I am assuming that they are very busy.
I saw a tutorial on pimylifeup.com and was going to try that when I relized that it was from 2016 and that I cant find out the newest version number off of eltechs' website or anywhere in the .pdf, so I can't do that, unless exagear is still at version 1.5.
So what can I do? The ativation troubleshooting section of docs.eltechs.com said that, if I understood it right, can be redownload and used again on the same Pi system. I tried this 2 times, fyi. Could I maybe try to update actool or update the instance of the actool that is residing in the /opt/exagear/bin directory?
Thanks in advance.
