svn checkout --revision 260 http://transparency-xbmc.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ Transparency!




downloading the xbmc source would be just as easy, but you'll have to compile it yourself.
download instructions for the xbmc source here:
http://xbmc.org/download/

compile instructions are included in the source (see the README.ubuntu file)

Brilliant, thanks a lot!!! Worked out very well. Just a couple of (new) questions. Your help is appreciated:

1) What should the right location for the skin? I now have /home/user/xbmc folder, but also /home/user/xbmc/xbmc, /home/user/.xbmc, and /usr/share/xbmc.

2) Is the "add-on" folder now the right one to copy the skins to? Any naming convention?

3) Any idea where plugins go with the latest built?


Thanks for your help!!!

it depends on what version of xbmc and transparency! you are using.
if you run the latest available of both (post add-on merge) this is how it should be:

1) on linux, the right location for skins is /home/user/.xbmc/addons
2) there's no "official" naming convention, but skin.transparency is what you should be using.
3) plugins should also be installed in the same directory. (/home/user/.xbmc/addons)


but...since you explicitly asked for T! svn r260 i assume you are running a pre-addon version of xbmc.
if that's the case the above doesn't apply.

Thanks for your quick message. Got everything working with pre-addon, but now actually compiled from SVN to get my hands on the very latest T! skin as well. Love to see how the new DVD covers look like.

So, I compiled successfully XBMC from SVN (built R29769) and it runs. However, I don't get T!. It downloaded well and I have added to "/home/user/.xbmc/addons". I don't know why, but it doesnt show up in XBMC. Also; I am confused aobut the "/home/user/xbmc/" folder and not sure whether I had this one before?

Any thoughts?

standard procedure: enable debug log & restart xbmc. post the Debug Log to pastebin. ;-)

oh, i don't have a "/home/user/xbmc/" folder, so no clue as to why you have one.

I am doing a full new install now from scratch. Will take a bit, but should have everything worked out then. Will keep a debug log if the issue remains. I guess that I must have screwed up something when I compiled XBMC from SVN. Can you take a brief look at below whether this looks right? Compared to the one in the WIKI, I had to add "sudo" before "make install" and also had to change directory to "/home/user" before running "./bootstrap".

Thanks for your help!!!

ok, looks like you downloaded the xbmc source in /home/user/xbmc right?
so, cd to that directory before running ./bootstrap.

also, i would pass a prefix to configure: ./configure --prefix=/usr
to install xbmc in it's standard location instead of /usr/local

and yes, you have to use sudo make install, as you have no rights to install anything outside of your home directory.


in case you have any other compiling questions, please ask them in the appropriate subforum (xbmc for linux) ;-)

Thanks for your help. All set and done now running T! in release 260 from SVN.

One question: trailers don't appear to work anymore. The "trailer icon" still shows (now even for those films that don't have a trailer). But when I go to the "trailer button", they don't play anymore. My trailers are saved as "movie-trailer.mp4" or "movie-trailer.flv". Any thoughts? Basically 2 bugs: 1) trailer-item shows for movies without trailer; 2) trailer actually don't play.

Cheers!

check Skin Settings > Scripts > Enable YouTrailer script
it should be set to off (default setting) if you don't use that script.

Yup, that was it. Thanks! Talking about scripts, I didnt find the AMT setting in r260. Disappeared?

true, since you can now make your own submenus, you can add the AMT as a Scripts submenu item yourself.

Used to have it as a menu (not sub-menu). That's not possible anymore, right? Would be cool to have this back!

Speaking of AMT, you're always in the know of stuff...Is there a AMT version for the merge yet?
