Well first of all sport, you are running a nightly (pre-Eden) version of XBMC you might as well be running the nightly version of the skin. 1.1.1 was written very early in the pre-Eden series and so is missing a LOT of changes to the skin to keep it current with the nightlies. One of the biggest changes to XBMC was to drop the idea of file/library mode. Now files are just one of the nodes in the library (there is no File mode anymore, but you can still look at files thru the library). Really you have two choices, downgrade XBMC to Dhrama 10.1 or upgrade the skin to v1.1.2. See the first post of this thread for details on how to load 1.1.2 version of the skin via the Passion repo.
As a side note, at this stage I'm almost 100% positive that there will NOT be a 1.1.2 version of the skin for Dharma. Eden is now in feature freeze and is likely to come out sometime around the formal release of the skin. That and there have been a LOT of changes to the skinning engine that would mean that there would be a LOT of work to make the current skin compatible with Dharma.
Ahh, thanks man. Sorry for all the newb questions. Running the version from SVN now. I like the horizontal menu; only thing missing that I can tell is that the current temp doesn't show at the top with the time (even though its enabled). Temp does show if I enable weather and navigate to weather (but I never navigate there; I'd just like to see the temp when on the home screen). I also cannot seem to add a custom add-on (Pandora) as I did in 1.1.1. When I go to select media source, I don't see Pandora (only HGTV and Youtube). I was able to copy the settings from guisettings.xml from the non-svn version and this sort-of works. Pandora now shows under Music->Add-ons and not in it's own menu; it even shows the Music folder even though I didn't select it in home folder settings (Pandora does get it's own entry and Music menu does not show if I disable horizontal menu). Not a biggie, and at least I can get to Files
BTW, another way to get to Files is to add a Favorite (you probably know this, but others may not). Just add this to favourites.xml. (I assume this works for everyone):
<favourite name="Files" thumb="DefaultFolder.png">ActivateWindow(10025,"sources://video/")</favourite>
Thanks again for your work on this and sorry for taking all my xbmc-newbness out on your thread !
