Sorry it took me so long to respond - I've just been crazy busy with getting the Guide in shape. Would love to have the help for documentation on the process! just let me know if you need anything else from me.watermouf wrote:So I have made some progress since my last post...
My remote looks just like this http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/mce ... 911-06.jpg
I assume HP_RC1804911 maybe the model number
LIRCs sourceforge page has this config even listed for the remote
http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/mce ... onf.mceusb
I tried it, and did gain function of more buttons, but still not full working
so I started comparing OpenELEC config to the UltraSlim specifically /etc/lirc/ and the keymaps .xml's
what I found was the OpenELEC LIRC config file was similar to the one linked above on LIRCs page, but with a few additions, so what i did was copy over the config with the keymaps from openelec to ultraSlims respective locations, and my function has almost increasted to 75% of the remote, with a few tweaks im pretty sure as far as mapping keys I will be successful. I would be more then happy to share my steps.
but a brand new issue has come up now, anytime i press a button it is pressed multiple times. so if i go left it goes left twice, i googled it and found ppl with similar problems. but their remotes seemed to repeat buttons a static amount of times (i.e. any button pressed would repeat 5 times, or 3 times) mine seems to repeat randomly on left or up and down. When i remove all the config files and reset back to normal i can press ENTER and have directionally key use on the remote. and suprsingly the printer button does a screenshot/printscreen. the keys dont skip i know the remote hardware is good, it works perfect as mentioned with openELEC out of box, wonder what other configs I could be missing.
As help for your documentation and I would be happy to break it down in simpler steps I have been following this documentation

I know the key is here, but I am missing something

Rionoskae, I really appreciate your guide. It definitely helped me figure some of this stuff out.
Here are a few extra things I got working, so feel free to add them to the guide if you find them useful:
1. How to Setup Xbox 360 Controller Support (1 wired controller)
2. How to Use the Xbox Home Button to Exit an Emulator
3. Control Emulation Station with Multiple Controllers
I'm looking forward to how this thread progresses.

I use it on a 2.4ghz ps3 controller but you should have a eaiser go with a official xbox 360 controller. You may need to google how to setup the xboxdrv.Here is my ps3.ini that I use with xboxdrv. Yours will be a bit different but gives you a idea of what needs done to get it working in xbmc.
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash setterm -cursor off sudo xboxdrv --type xbox360 --config ps3.ini --silent > /dev/null 2>&1 & sleep 1 mkdir -p ~/.xbmc clear /opt/xbmc-bcm/xbmc-bin/lib/xbmc/xbmc.bin --standalone &> ~/.xbmc/temp.log setterm -cursor on sudo killall xboxdrv echo "xbmc script done"My current 1.5 setup I released has been working well for me, and I haven't felt the need to release a update. If you want to add emulator's, its not difficult to do so. Just throw em in the proper directory to get them showing in emulationstation. I may release updates to xbmc however. Also, ethernet works out of the box via dhcp. If you use wireless, just google how to set it up (your network info), and it will also work.

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for UltraSlim. It's certainly made my goal of running everything from a USB hard drive an absolute breeze since discovering that the one '/root' partition holds everything.
There's just one thing I'd like to change if possible, and that's the main 'Applications' screen. Is it possible for me to change the font and background image used? I'm fairly new to the world of Linux so don't know where to look for them in the folder structure. I'm guessing they're stored there somewhere?
Just open up es_systems.cfg @ \\ULTRASLIM\Home\.emulationstationPeteyjay wrote:I too was wondering whether or not it would be possible to launch or add things to the Apps page.
I was hoping to add the launch link to Cave Story, Dinothawr, Quake and Doom to this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I don't believe it does by default, but you can upgrade to a Gotham nightly build using my guide linked in post 1. That should provide dvd support.figaro wrote:I am interested if xbmc in this distro can play dvd-s from external dvd player (not only iso images)?
