Everything seems to be working ok until it hit the building skin part of the process. The Status just says "waiting" and the cmd prompts never pop up with the skin builds.

Any ideas or anyone else having this problem?

Thanks in advance.

same problem here. tried the debug mode and I get:

---- EXCEPTION TRACEBACK ----
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "gui.pyo", line 601, in __processConsumer
File "wx\lib\delayedresult.pyo", line 225, in get
AttributeError: processSkins instance has no attribute '_processSkins__exportskin'
---- END TRACEBACK ----

Hello and sorry for slow answer.

I see the problem, and it's more or less a Vista problem :
I use platform.system() to identify the OS, on XP, this returns "Windows" but Vista can sometimes return "Microsoft", so XBMCSM don't know how to build skin.

The other problem is that it tries to use "svn export" function to use plain source files, but this feature has been removed and I've forgot to clean this call...

But the problem is fixed : there is the update from 0.7 to 0.71 (just extract it to install folder and overwrite existing files)

Can you confirm me this works before publishing official update ? (I'm still on XP)

Great !

The new update prompt is shown only because the last official version is 0.7 ans you have 0.71, it's not a problem.

The update is now published on website.

Hi,
I'm using v0.71 from svn on debian and/or ubuntu. When I run xbmcsm.pyw there're no checkboxes (no skins found?) to select the skins (only for http-skins) any idea what's going wrong? The xbmcsm.pyw is completely empty.

thnx in advance

Hi,
Try to use debug mode by passing d as program argument. If you start the program by command line, it should be something like that :
Code:
python xbmcsm.pyw d

i've tried it on vista x64 and selected amped to get downloaded and built. unfortunately it told me xbmctex is missing.

also it tells "unable to install amped" and now the status is "waiting" (progress bar is filled about 3/4) since 5 minutes and there seems to be nothing happening.

my advise would be to tell ppl they need xbmctex and where to obtain it for windows. just to get it more proof for n00bs like me..

edit: the interesting thing is: amped got installed AND textures.xpr had been created.

cheers,azido :;):

@freaksworth
No idea, sorry. But, are you behind a proxy ? (not detected by SVN)


@azido
This problem happens only for amped or for all skins ?
If it tells you explicitly that XBMCTex is missing I think the problem comes from BAT file.

Here's a working patch to make this run on OS X if anyone is interested. It basically just replaces checks for "Linux" with checks for... not "Windows" or "Microsoft" where it wants to use Windows-specific calls.
