So...is this supposed to be the main interface? As maybe a replacement for your windows wallpaper? That would be pretty sweet if it is. I just remove all icons and use a black wallpaper, like the "device" is powered off.
Looks good...whatever it is!

I'm having trouble installing Maraschino in Windows Vista x64. I've been getting the following error.
Quote:You need to specify DATABASE in settings.py, and ensure that Flask-SQLAlchemy is installed.
I'm running cmd as Admin.
I've tried easy_install on Flask-SQLAlchemy again.
My settings.py filename is spelled correctly.
See the contents below:
Quote:DATABASE = '/HTPC-Apps/maraschino/maraschino.db'

I'd like to see it create the database in root no matter what. I don't see a reason why you'd want to create it anywhere else. All the other apps around here just create the database in root by default.

Mikie, Having the option to put database where you want should be kept imo, with mar2zz patches you would be able to run multiple databases from the 1 maraschino install. I do agree that default should be app root as 99% of ppl will just use the 1 database.

Does anyone else have problems with custom backgrounds not showing when not playing media? When I set "Use a random background when not watching media" to "Yes" I don't get any background image at all. See https://github.com/mrkipling/maraschino/issues/10 for all the details about this issue.
Gugahoi is doing everything he can to help me with this issue, but since he doesn't have a Windows 7 X64 machine, he cannot reproduce this bug.
So is there anyone who can test this out for us? What can be the cause of this issue?
Thx in advance!

I was able to replicate your problem Marcoevich. So its not only you, i am just getting a grey background.

Could you tell me exactly what you were doing and your settings?

fresh install of experimental.
added folder 'custom' to static/images/backgrounds
added a custom.jpg file to custom folder
i just followed the instructions from the faq on maraschino website..
only setting i changed was the custom background 1
i installed this copy of maraschino for this test only
tried clearing cache, did nothing
tested running as administrator
tried on my linux install and i only see the grass background still.
- Marcoevich - 2011-12-31 12:26
That's exactly what I did. Thx for verifying this
Luckily, gugahoi has found the culprit and published a fix for us. See: https://github.com/mrkipling/maraschino/issues/10
The only thing is, backgrounds are still not working from the 'custom' folder that has to be created according to the FAQ. Could you test this for us please?

I'm still having some issues with this unfortunately, I hope someone can help.
Maraschino is successfully running as I can access it at port 7000. My media library shows up, but clicking on a file in it does nothing. Recently added shows also appears and shows the latest shows I have added, with the correct thumbnails, however, the description is blank with no name and clicking the file does nothing. Strangely though, the suspend button works but the other function buttons don't. Maraschino also doesn't display any 'Now playing'. It's strange that it appears to be semi working! Any ideas? I've got to say, the whole thing does look great, especially with the matching cherry background which popped up a few minutes ago.
I can provide a screenshot and any further info as neccessary. I am running it on my XBMCLive box with Ubuntu 10.04.2.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Is there any further guidance on setting up the applications tabs (i.e. with the URL and position fields etc)?

I just merged in a few things:
* gugahoi's changes to the Sickbeard module (you can now restart/shutdown SB from the module, as well as search for and add shows to your queue).
* Mar2zz's changes to the startup script, which automatically creates a database if one doesn't exists. This means that setup.py isn't required any more.
I'm going to work on merging in a few more pull requests this afternoon and over the next couple of days. What can I say, I'm not big on NYE
In other news, I spent all of yesterday setting up an ATV2 with XBMC in the bedroom. It works pretty well. I now have a vested interest in Maraschino supporting multiple XBMC servers

A lot of good news
Thanks for your work

Using the Experimental Branch.
Thank You for Enabling Windows Paths for the Disk Space Widget.
- Marcoevich - 2012-01-01 04:18
Ah so even the diskspace widget works now Great job guys!
I will try the experimental branch in a few days, since you are merging some more pull requests. I'll wait for this
@ Gugahoi, could you edit this line in maraschino.py?
backgrounds.extend(get_file_list('static/images/backgrounds/', ['.jpg', '.png']))
Make it look like
backgrounds.extend(get_file_list('static/images/backgrounds/custom/', ['.jpg', '.png']))
The custom backgrounds are not working from within the custom folder

Spent some time getting through the backlog of pull requests. Pushed to master today:
* changes to the diskspace widget - should now be working in Windows (thanks go to gugahoi)
* the ability to change the status of episodes in Sickbeard from within the module, plus some other small tweaks (thanks go to gugahoi)
* nicer settings in the SABnzbd module, although this requires re-entering your settings in the module (thanks go to Mar2zz)
