Thanks for the respons!
Not home now so cant take photos.
I made a very light install using Ubuntu minimal and XBMC, see my guide:
Thank you for the guide. I tried a minimal install but I was stuck at the startup ! I'll have a try in a few days when I'll be back at home.

SpiffBB Wrote:I have looked at all screens and compared to PM3HD the differense is:
Video (not library mode) - a "Reload skin" button.
Music (not library mode) - a "Reload skin" and a "CUSTOM" button.).
I am talking about the alpha3 release and not the previous files.
The modified xml files (and also png files) should be applied OVER a fresh, non customized, PM3-HD skin.
I suggest you to make an copy of your "../xbmc/skin/PM3-HD" folder and rename it as "../xbmc/skin/PM3-HD_touchscreen"
Then unrar the modificated files over the renamed folder.
Du to some strange autorisations problem I had on Linux, I suggest you to check that files was really overwritten.
0 - Connect a mouse the time needed to activate the touchscreen mode
1 - Close xbmc and restart it.
2 - Go to the skin selection and select "PM3-HD_touchscreen"
3 - Wait a few seconds until the skin is loaded.
4 - Go to home screen
5 - Settings -> System -> Left tab "Touchscreen" and activate
Then use the touchscreen
Still talking about the alpha3 release and not the previous files.
Library mode was NOT modified at all, so do NOT espect to see anything
"Picture" can NOT be modified (please see here
) before some C(++) modifications
"Classic" Video mode was modified ONLY on the alpha3 release and should be ok
"Classic" Audio should be ok

Right, as it was a little boring I did not modified the skin to be remote-compatible (And it is still an alpha release !) So it is a must to connect the mouse to activate the touchscreen mode.
SpiffBB Wrote:Then pressing "Reload skin" the screen slides out (PM3 normal animation) and the same screen slides in again.
Then pressing "CUSTOM" the screen slides out and in slides a complete blank black screen. Touching the screen makes no difference, the only way to get back is by pressing escape.
µIn fact because it was in developpement, I made some button to reload the screen but I did not removed those.
SpiffBB Wrote:I think beside this I checked every possible screen and cant find any other differences compared to normal PM3HD.
Did you checked Settings -> System -> Left tab "Touchscreen" and activate
SpiffBB Wrote:Have tried some other skins like Mediastream, Focus, Basics 101 and they all seams to work. Could there anyway be some dependencis that is missing?
Just the original PM3-HD skin should be needed
SpiffBB Wrote:Thinking about GDM os something like that specialy for your skin?
I do not understand what GDM is... My experience on Linux was full of problems to "click" on the back buttons. It was like the touchscreen driver was not "able" to understand that I wanted to click on the buttons... BUT you should, at least, see the back buttons
Please let me know,
