(I know there are alot of topics around this subject, but I can’t find any with my preconditions.)
I am running Home Assistans on Docker, on an Ubuntu 20 machine and am trying to configure my old Tellstick Duo. I have the Tellstick running on my host after custom building it (as the official build is outdated for latest versions of Ubuntu) and it’s working fine on the host.
However, when trying to install it into my Home Assistant docker I get the error: “Could not connect to the Telldus Service (-6)”.
How can I make Home Assistant use my custom build of the Tellstick tools? Or is it just a configuration error on my part? I’m not proficient enough on Docker…
Error during setup of component tellstick Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/src/homeassistant/homeassistant/setup.py", line 213, in _async_setup_component result = await task File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/concurrent/futures/thread.py", line 57, in run result = self.fn(*self.args, **self.kwargs) File "/usr/src/homeassistant/homeassistant/components/tellstick/__init__.py", line 112, in setup tellcore_devices = tellcore_lib.devices() File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/tellcore/telldus.py", line 173, in devices count = self.lib.tdGetNumberOfDevices() File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/tellcore/library.py", line 257, in check_int_result raise TelldusError(result) tellcore.library.TelldusError: Could not connect to the Telldus Service (-6)
My docker-compose.yml reads:

My homeassistant/configuration.yaml reads:
tellstick: signal_repetitions: 3
From what I gather that should be enought for the Tellstick Duo(?)
