Re: Xibo player (work) on raspberrypi

Hello knurpth, Thanks for the scripts, I will also implement them. There is no problem in calling the Xibo1.4 dir Xibo. The only reason this is called 1.4 is because my development image also has 1.5 on it. I will incorporate all the changes into the image these couple of days and release a new one...

Re: Xibo player (work) on raspberrypi

Another one on the autostarting:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LX ... t_Programs shows multiple ways.

Let's assume we use the Pi as a Xibo client config. Wouldn't it be better to not start LXDE at all? Like XBMC can run "standalone"?

Re: Xibo player (work) on raspberrypi

By the way, could I ask one of you to look at the reason why lxde doesn't start shellscripts?? I have searched this forum and some others but people seem to be doing a bit mysterious about the reason. Thanks in advance. First, let me thank you for the amazing piece of work you're doing. Funny thing...
