this is a continuation of another topic "How to install Linux Client". For some reason I cannot post a reply to an existing thread.......
I ran the command :
sudo /usr/lib/prey/current/bin/prey config panel
and the system successfully connected to via the web interface. However my computer is still not listed in the device list. The web response afte selecting my email for an existing account was :
We couldn’t complete the setup because the device didn’t connect to Prey, don’t worry, it will do so automatically when it reaches Prey’s servers.
