Hi, this is not working for me Sad

I have a brand new XBMC install and edited the .bat file as per the instructions in the readme, pointing to the proper dir etc.

When I clicked one of the Aeon themes though (showmix) it "partially" loads but most things are missing from the screen... No writing on the menus or anything like that. Navigating up and down shows movement but there clearly is the bulk of the menu missing... the sounds seem to be working fine..

And the worst part is, now when I re-load XBMC, I can't even navigate around to go back to the old theme because I can't read anything!

Please help!


Edit: Looking in the XBMC log file there is tons of this:

Code:

And looking in the media/Fonts/ dir there is only a single file... Arial.ttf

Not sure what the heck is going on..

Well, the fonts should be in <path-to-skin-folder-in-xbmc>\Aeon Showmix\font

Is it there? If not, can you copy the fonts from the ASMupdate into that folder and launch XBMC again?

great initiative dude!

realy nice to update these skins with one click.

1 small issue:
The font folder for Aeon Showmix is being copied to the wrong folder. (..\XBMC\skin\skin\Aeon Showmix\fonts).
the xcopy rule is wrong, got a \skin to much Wink

@locust
look at your skin folder, you should find another skin folder in there. copy the content of that folder to your first skin folder and you should be ok!

Well, maybe you should try and comprehend what that message is trying to tell you: a moderator had to aprove your posts. This is intended as a spam protection measure for forum members with very few posts - and not as a way to get me to work Smile

Hi there,

So this looks like a great help keeping my favorite skin (Hitched) up to date. I installed GIT as instructed and tried to download the skin. Alas I ran into an error. This is wat the script told me:

Code:
XBMC Skin Folder Not Found in /home/<my user name>/.xbmc/skin!

That's it. No error code or anything like that.

I assured the folder exists. I do have sufficient rights to write in this folder. It does contain the skins Aeon and Hitched (named hitched as a folder)

I do however see that in the asmupdate folder I have all the sub folders that come with the skin. I don't suppose I have to copy the files manuallyWink

Anyone any ideas?

TIA

Greetz,

J@n

Hi there,

Looks great, but having a few issues...

I run the ASMUpdate.bat (in program files/asmupdate/...

then in cmd, it skips a few lines and that's it, nothing happens

thanks!

trying this now.
installed xbmc babylon
extracted the script
edited the xbmc instal path
and ran it. seems to work.

however thread or readme does not say anything about updating xbmc installation. but guess that is needed to get these mods to work. maybe change that to both this thread and readme if it's needed.

A thousand apologies.. After the 20090814 update, all the packages got screwed up and the paths mixed up. Please get version 20090818. That should fix the path problems..

Sorry for the errors..

I believe all the skins (Showmix, Auriga, Hitched) all need a recent SVN copy of XBMC. Babylon will not work for them. You can use XBMCUpdater to update XBMC.

1. Install Git for MacOS - http://code.google.com/p/git-osx-installer/
2. Get the Linux version of this script, and un-tar-gz it somewhere like /usr/local/asmupdate
3. Edit the asmupdate.sh, and on the line where it says "GITPATH=`pwd`/git-linux", change it to "GITPATH=/usr/local/git/"
4. Also in asmupdate.sh, probably you have to set your XBMCFOLDER to "XBMCFOLDER=/user name/library/application support/skin"

Thanks for the help here. Have two questions on the Mac version:

1) How can I access the "/usr/local/"? Is this possible without the finder?

2) After doing above changes, what could I do to run the script? I read the readme, but dont really understand what I need to do?


Cheers!!!
