Hi.

From what I can tell from the screenshots of this skin it looks exactly like what I would like, and from starting to using it I really like the overall feel but for some reason I cant seem to enable library view. Is there something else that needs to be done except for klicking the button in the upper bar inside "movies"?

Im running Ubuntu 9.04 and Im using the latest xbmc svn. Other than that Im not sure what else to tell. It has never been any trouble to use library in the others skins I've used so far so I figure something must be messed up within this somehow.

Would be nice with some suggestions.

Thx for reading.

Do you see movies or tv shows categories on the home screen? If not then you have nothing scanned into your library. This is also the case if in videos, the 'enable library' button is grayed out on the top options menu bar.

FYI, enable library was removed recently while cleaning up the settings pages.

1) Yes I did scan my library so I do see the icons for both movies and tv-shows on the home screen.

2) The button was removed? Does that mean that I have an old version of the skin then or what?

I read about this. How do I get back to library mode in the newer SVN then? Isn't that possible?

Exactly. If there's a problem entering the library views you have to update your XBMC version and/or skin.

It is enabled by default, don't worry about the missing gui setting.

But I just updated to the latest SVN, and now my library mode is gone.

I can only enter videos in file modes.
Both in Aeon ShowMix and PM3 HD.

I had exactly the same problem on my Ubuntu installation last night. I tried to access the library with MiniMeedia and PM3.HD skins but each time it bounced me to the video files.

I assumed that the Ubuntu SVN PPA's were in a dodgy state so was going to try again later.

Have the same problem as well. Using the 23688 build and the enable library function in videos -> library is not present. When I try to enable it through minimedia, it just loads of a second and jumps back into file mode.

Can't wait for a fix for this. xbmc without library feels so strange Tongue
