sxgb script - Diddleydoo - 2011-12-30 14:11
After fresh install of xbmc 10.1 live i ran the sxgb script and got this error.
Copying XBMC binary to /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin
install: cannot stat `xbmc.bin': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-binaries] Error 1

*edit* It helps to write a post..... Instead of starting xbmc from start-programs...etc i started the xbmc.exe thats in C:\dev\spotyxbmc2\project\Win32BuildSetup\BUILD_WIN32\Xbmc. Then it worked!!! nice *edit*
I followed the great guide in post #530, installed xbmc, followed the steps in the guide. And now i can open library, but if I try to open songs, artists etc it is just sitting there working, when I hit backspace I get the message "path not found or invalid"
If I try to open "Spotify radio" it opens blank - i.e. no songs, nothing.
If I search for artists not in my local library, it returns blank.
I had logon to Spotify via facebook, and had to get a numerical code to use as username.
Any suggestions to what I have done wrong?

This is why I had problems, my database which is on a SQL-server needed to be updated.

A huge thankyou to Akezeke!! This is how Spotify should be
But what happens when I install an update? will Spotify stop working and I will have to do this job over again, or will Spotify work even after an update?
SpotyXBMC compile for ATV2 - Rooster77 - 2012-01-01 15:06
I'm trying to compile your branch for the ATV2. At the moment I'm at the stage just to have it compile it and runt. To find a solution for starting libspotify is a latter matter.
The compile goes just fine but it seems like there are some linking problems somewhere. The compile itself goes just fine but my ATV2 throws me the following error and refuses to load XBMC to the menu. Does anyone have any ideas where/what to change?

Rooster Fantastic, please share when you are done, we are all waiting for a version that we can use with ATV2

Rooster, keep up the good work. I can't wait Do keep us posted on your progress.
Thanks akezeke for your hard hard work.
After browsing through roughly half of the pages in this thread I'm a bit worried. If this does not become a proper add-on I have a hard time seeing a proper future for it within xbmc.
But the thread is a bit though to digest so I might be wrong?
I'm trying to understand why this can't be a proper add-on? Is there an easy answer?

Thanks for all this great work!
Is it possible to get a plug-in that works with standard XBMC soon? Or is this impossible?
Just asking because I don't wanna do the hassle of installing this on my other computer if there is a plug-in available soon.
It would be perfect if you guys could place a link to Gr8rtek's post on how to install this in the first post in this thread.

If I do a GIT PULL from Akezeke's repo to update the files, then I go through the same compile process (Steps 8-31). I have found that, once I get the custom installer .exe built, it is not necessary to do anything else in XBMC to have Spotify work.
I'm glad so many have found the guide useful. Sorry I'm not a programmer/developer, and thus not much help in troubleshooting those unable to compile.
Thanx - Diddleydoo - 2012-01-05 18:03
Thanks to tsint for helping me to get spotyxbmc2 rocking at my home.
He Wrote a damn good guide using xbmc live to me. With his permission and if anybody wants it i can pm it to you.
And akezeke, keep up the good work!
