Actually, pastebin your ~/.xbmc/userdata/projectM.conf file.

I have this same problem. ProjectM not working just black screen - but the path in the ProjectM config file is correct and I can see the list of presets in xbmc.
I have all my music on SMB share but tried putting some local to try if it was the SMB messing up but no change. It's really annoying.
If someone has a solution to this I would be most grateful.

Still, post your projectM.conf and xbmc.log. Saying you have the same issue without providing anything additional isn't going to help.

here is my ProjectM.conf
and here is my xbmc.log

That's not a debug log.
Enable debug please.
Also, this looks odd:
Window Bottom = 0
Window Height = 768
Window Left = 3
Window Width = 1017
How are you starting XBMC? Are you not in full screen?
Please kill off your projectM.conf and also try to make sure xbmc starts in full screen (not sure that is causing any issues).
Here is how my projectM.conf looks compared to yours:
Window Bottom = 0
Window Height = 1080
Window Left = 0
Window Width = 1920

Sorry, I think I was looking in the wrong place for projectM.conf.
Please look in ~/.xbmc/userdata/visualisations directory. Paste contents from there please.

ok, I have turned on debug in settings so here is my new log.
I run my xbmc with the xbmc command and are starting with fullscreen - only have a 1024x768 Plasma screen and my xbmc is set to that.
in option it says : 1024X768 @ 50.00HZ (FULL SCREEN)
Already tried removing the ProjectM.conf file before and that didn't help.

Please show me the correct projectM.conf from the location I mentioned in my last post.
What does this mean?

Do you even have a /usr/local/share/xbmc/visualisations/projectM.vis ?

I had someone tell me that is swedish. That means that file does not exist.
- oscarmax - 2009-05-23 21:49
my ProjectM.conf file I posted earlier is from that location u mention.
And thats correct that is swedish and that is telling me that the file is missing, this reminds me to something I changed an hour ago in my GUI conf file - forgot to undo that.. but changing that back don't help .. still black.. here's a new fresh logfile with the filename correct.
