I had to adjust the resolution in the .huludesktop file in my home directory to match my screens resolution and switched the x and y positions to 0. Wala! Fullscreen. I'm working on a sound problem right now but will try to get the remote up and running again. It's usable with a keyboard though and since a wireless keyboard is in my future, it's not such a huge deal. Not saying that I won't want to work the keyboard iss out... Right now, I'm trying to get the sound back on my Ubuntu install. Sound was only coming out one speaker so of course I completely broke ALL sound. Smile

If you have a little time I could use a quick guide to Hulu Desktop on Dharma Live - even if the remote isnt working - I use a long distance mouse anyway.

Thanks

Are you using a Dharma Live on removable media, or on an installed Dharma Live?

I was able to get Hulu desktop to run on an installed Dharma Live by following this thread and the Firefox thread: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=68505

I installed all packages listed (huludesktop,gnome-desktop-data,update-manager,firefox-3.5) and then tested Firefox & Hulu so I'm not sure what is really required for just Hulu.

My problem now is XBMC is still receiving all LIRC commands, so whenever I press LIRC OK button, it launches another instance of huludesktop.

Is there anyway to make xbmc ignore LIRC commands after launcher opens a new program?

Anyone who has issues with this in Linux read this thread. http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=97005
I outlined how I have mine set up pretty well. It works 100% no stutter, etc. Only the gui is slow, but that's a fault in the program.

i think falcon fox might have the same problem as i do. i run everything from my wireless xbox controller and with xpadder key emulation, when i run hulu desktop from xbmc it pops up full screen and fine. my key emulation switches to my hulu profile BUT it still controlls xbmc in the backgroundStare

what to do?
