Libki Jamex Client - Set Up and Demonstration
This tutorial will walk you through setting up the Libki Jamex Client and give you a demonstration on using it.
You can download the Libki Jamex Installer here: https://github.com/Libki/libki-jamex/releases
The first thing you will want to do is set-up your Jamex Machine. It will need to be one that is new enough to have a USB port. If you have a machine that only has a serial port on it, unfortunately it is too old and you’ll have to get a newer one.

There are only two pieces of information that the Libki Jamex Client needs. It is your server address and an API key. Once you paste in the server address, you need to create an API key. If you go into the Libki Kiosk Management System Settings and go down to the API keys section, you can see where you can click on “Create Key” in order to generate a new key. You can paste this information in and click "Next" then determine a location to install it. Select allow it to create a Start Menu Folder and you most definitely want to click “Create a desktop icon”. It will take a few minutes to install. Once installed, you will now see the desktop icon appear.
Now you can launch the Libki Jamex client. You will see a login screen asking for a username and password. In your Libki Kiosk Management System you can click on “New User”. Once you create a new username and password, go back to the Libki Jamex client and log in. You will see “Machine Balance”. Depending on the model of Jamex machine you have, you might have a coin slot, bills slots, and/or a copy card slot.
Note: If it says a -1 as your “Machine Balance” that means your Jamex Machine was not able to connect and there are some log files we would be able to take a look at that would be able to tell us why that is.
In the example in the video above we used a copy card with a $3.23 balance. In the “Amount to transfer” you would select how much you would like to move to Libki. You can move up or down with the arrows or type in an amount. In this example, we demoed transfering $1.50 to Libki. We hit “Transfer Funds”. A pop up said “Funds have been transferred” and then select “Ok”. This will automatically pop the card out as well.
And that's it! You've successfully added funds to your Libki account!
