Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Darren Fruitbox doesn't set any display resolution, it just reads it so it is probably a Raspberry Pi config issue. Have you checked what is in your /boot/config.txt file with regards video settings? https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/video.md Also have you tried l...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Raimund That's encouraging. If you use the --config-buttons option instead of test buttons you will generate a button mapping file to use the keys you have chosen for future fruitbox runs. I would then have a look at fruitbox.btn to see what it has chosen for the keys which give both device 0 and...

Hope, you can find out why fruitbox insists of ignoring the multimedia keys.

Cheers,

Hi Raimond

If you run fruitbox with the --test-buttons --input-device mini options, does it recognise the keys?

@MobileMac, do you start fruitbox from desktop or directly from command line? Strange enough that one skin seems to work and another crashes over time. Maybe Mike has an idea how to solve that issue. @Mike: I want to use different music databases which contain only specific genres. So XMas-Time I w...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Raimund Regarding power down, there is a fruitbox button for this purpose, which just executes the terminal command "sudo shutdown now" for a safe power off. Sorry but I can't answer for sure your question about switching from the desktop... I've never used that environment I'm afraid. Cheers, Mike

You can determine min x, min y and max x, max y via evtest (touch upper left and lower right).
Then start fruitbox directly with --cfg skinfile.
evtest also indicates min and max values through its report (looking at a previous post it appears to be min 0,0; max 4095, 4095).
