Ok, i can put an Minimize Button to the skin, only where? any Ideas?
EDIT: possibly where the date and time is at Home Window

"Shutdown System" has function of <onclick>XBMC.Powerdown()</onclick>
In order to be configured via Settings/System/Power Saving/Shutdown function =Minimize it should have <onclick>XBMC.Shutdown()</onclick> value

tiny button close to home window date/time sounds reasonable, usual location for it, and please use directly <onclick>XBMC.Minimize()</onclick> function for it- It work under windows but should work also for other OS http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Lis..._functions

well, the skin is still marked as broken and now I can't even update it. The update is noticed but when I click on "update": the message is "dependencies are not met" -this appears on the screen and no other info in the log.

same thing happens with another addon ' my picture database '.

Cheers

Oups. It seems I missed the two RC's of 11.0.

Just upgraded to 11.0 RC2 - got a bunch of updates for my addons including joggler skin - which works now.

Cheers.

minimize button- works fine, just no visible any graphic on the right of clock- however visible text 'MINIMIZE' while clicked. maybe bug on my touchscreen only.

shutdown function also works proper now (minimize when configured)- other skins (maybe not all) also should take that fix.
Thank you for great work!

No, no ... its not a Bug Big Grin only integrated a focus texture,
otherwise you can see even the clock / date not more, and it will get ugly, too. Similarly, for the RSS feed, there is in focus/click the menu bar disappears, the whole so that the background (or video) is pretty visible.

But this is still not good for users who use pre Eden beta´s. I hope I can reproduce that quickly, so I get to see the error Sad
actually I have no major changes in the repo addon.xml made ​​the last time.

With the latest version of the skin and using metro (xbmc 11 eden rc2) it seems that the 'colour' option of the skin are not working any more - only skin-default (which is some kind of blue) is working but it is still cool. Smile

Also, please find time to fix the font issues as mentioned earlier in the posts (sansation rocks):

T:2376 ERROR: Couldn't load font name: font50caps_title(Sansation_Regular-Caps.ttf), trying to substitute arial.ttf

Cheers.

- I delete all color Themes from the Skin.zip download Link and add xyz.xpr to the "media" Joggler Skin Folder

- Sansation_Regular-Caps.ttf -> I check this


PS: Themes are not UpToDate Smile

Here are the specs http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/product/detail....8476995241


What is planned on next release? I can tell so much planning and thought has gone into this. Also buttons are very well placed and views are great. Overall a great experience and even my 6 yr old can go thru menus.

One question though... how can i remove some of the menu items on metro view? Like appearance, configure video, configure system, etc... i am going to make a profile for my kids and want it simple and only a couple of selections like tvshows, movies, music and addons...thats it. How do u add profiles btw... cant find it in settings.

Thanks
