"add-on does not have the correct structure" error - yetisnacks - 2011-08-13 04:35
I'm trying to install the anarchintosh repo (downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/anarchintosh-projects/wiki/HowToInstallTheRepository) with cyberduck and keep getting "add-on does not have the correct structure" error message. How can I fix this?

Works for me. You might need to give us some more info, like what version of XBMC you are running (include the build date).

at the bottom of the summary page it says "XBMC PRE-11.0 Git:20110623-62171b3 (Compiled : jun 23 2011)

Update to the unofficial nightly build. Less bugs at the moment and not scary at all.

ok updated to august 8th build, still having the same issue. is there something I need to change in the repo file, or a different way to install it?

when you download it you should be left with a file called "repository.googlecode.anarchintosh-projects.1.0.1.zip"
Don't expand the zip file, just leave it as is. Use SFTP/SSH and put this zip file at
When you select "install add-on from zip" select "home folder" and you should see the zip file. Select it and go.
If you are doing this but are still having problems then try doing everything again, but with debugging on, and then post us a link to your xbmc.log file: http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=846403&postcount=4

here is the log http://pastebin.com/w8Zuq0FU
i've tried deleting the zip from xbmc and going straight through from the anarchintosh site, to downlods, to desktop to cyberduck. I'm not having a problem getting the zip onto the xbmc, just when I try to install from zip it gives me the message "add-on does not have the correct structure." This is the second atv2 that this has happened to me on, and I was able to work around it somehow about a month ago, but I can't figure out how.
Thanks a lot for your help

I get the same error code, so I need some help.
I have put the file on my NAS server and in Apple TV 2 I have made a connection through the "File Manager".
I can see the file but I can't install it
Shouldn't it be OK to put the file on the NAS ?
I'm a newbie to use SSH Commands (Know a bit about Dos commands )
So I really need help to copy the file from Mac to Apple TV2.
So it a complete string to copy the file from "Downloads" on the Mac to var/mobile/ on the Apple TV2.

Why isn't it already a part of the XBMC "App Store" ?

The installation as zip file works now.
I copied the file through a ftp prg and put it in private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata
But I think I have some trouble with the acces to the internet, cause I get a script error (addon.py) whenever I try to Load Directory
Anyone on this ?
