@jayleekay, it sounds like a permission issue with the file system hosting the share. How did it get there to begin with? The favorites.xml that is?

RE: [WIP] Metropolis skin - jayleekay - 2014-10-20 00:42

The file was created by an openelec system onto a nas NFS share. The permissions show 0777. The favorites are there and seem accessible manually on all systems. But if I try to do a favorite shortcut under metropolis home items, it only lists whatever was/is in the local favorites.XML . maybe deleting this file will help? I guess I could just copy the shared info to each box manually. But that kind of defeats the purpose of using the substitute function in advancedsettings

RE: [WIP] Metropolis skin - jayleekay - 2014-10-22 22:58

I just ended up copying the files to each device and removing the substitution .

You've solved your problem already but, for what it's worth, I personally just put favourites.xml on the share and synlink it on the clients.

RE: [WIP] Metropolis skin - jayleekay - 2014-10-24 02:44

I tried that, but it wouldn't allow me to use them for shortcuts. Do you mean using the <substitute> and path substitutions in advancedsettings? Or something else?

No, I mean symlinks in the OS. ln -s.

When I am using profiles with the login screen enabled a Log off icon appears on the home screen.
However, when I use the auto login option Metropolis doesn't give me the Log off option on the home screen anymore..
I can't seem to add it as a favourite to set a custom shortcut for it either..

Is there a way I can get it back on the home screen or is it possible to include it in the next release?

Just installed the latest Helix beta the other day. It is nice and fast I must say, but damn without my favorite skin it just isn't worth it.

I stay on Gotham until Metropolis is released.

Keep up the good work guys.
