Hi guys,

I'm having an issue with getting this plugin working on my Pi B+ with OSMC.

The app is installed and when I enter it I can see all of my folders and files. Whenever I click on a picture, however, the screen goes blank. I also don't see any thumbnails.

I have had this error pop up:

EDDOR: [Errno 2] No Su... /osmc/.kodi/addons/plugin.dbmc/default.py

Can someone please aid me in this? Cheers.

The pictures aren't directly available. They need to be cached(downloaded) to your Pi first.
Please read: Add-on:Dbmc#Caching_or_streaming_media (wiki)
Thanks.

When it still doesn't work after waiting some time, please provide me some (debug) logging so that I can investigate.

Thanks mate, that makes sense. I've managed to sync the pictures but the sync feature, despite being set to 5 minutes, syncs intermittently. I'm not sure why this is, even after restarting the pi it does not sync. I'm using the pi as a noticeboard in our workplace and I really love the ability to sync to Dropbox and have it play over the TV, but I need to be able to ensure it updates within a reasonable time period - any idea why this isn't happening, or how I can get the pi to refresh the screensaver so it shows the updated DB pics?

Love your work, btw, the addon is excellent.

I don't known why it would sync intermittently. It can happen that the sync (downloading new items) takes longer than 5 minutes. But a new sync should start immediately again when the previous sync finished.
I'm not familiar with the screensaver or how it works. Sorry about that.

Seems I've run into problems with OSMC / DBMC 0.9.2 too, short summary is the OSMC-skin is indirectly causing a 'black screen' problem in DBMC.

First of all, thanks for making DBMC, it's exactly what I needed. Only thing is, it doesn't cooperate with the OSMC default skin (which is a different skin than Kodi default!).

I just installed DBMC 0.9.2 from the zipfile from Sourceforge on my Pi 2. The newest version in Kodi-repository seems to be 0.8.1, it is missing in Helix-repository.
My OSMC is the "newest" version RC something to which I manually applied al updates. OK, admitting here, I did last full update a week ago or so.

I can add my DropBox account fine, authentication / PIN etc. works. I see my folders in my account and I go to the Dropbox Photo folder. Opening any picture in DBMC gave me a black screen.

Reading the kodi.log file, the error (missing control 32 / progressbar) is pointing me to skin problems. So I change the skin from the OSMC skin to the default-skin (Confluence), and guess what, DBMC is working now.

Probably means some skin elements DBMC is relying on are missing from the default OSMC skin. Which means it's a "bug" in OSMC and not in DBMC maybe - but I thought I might report back anyway for other people running into this problem as a reference.

For your pleasure, here's the Python-error thrown:

Thanks for the detailed information! I already had done some 'special' fixes in DBMC, because the OSMC skin is not complete. So I can add this one as well... Wink
I'll make the change soon.
