Sorry if it is mentioned before, is there a way to work with a screen saver?I use aquarium screen saver for xbmc and if boblight can work with it could be great
nope
I wonder how I find out what "output" I use. I know from "lsusb" that I use bus 03 and address 02,

Code:
OpenELEC:~ # lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1d50:6022 OpenMoko, Inc.
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0471:0815 Philips (or NXP) eHome Infrared Receiver
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

and

but I don't know how to find out the output, like, /dev/XXXXXXX .

Also, I need to say that I got my Lightpack with Boblight working, in some magic automatic way, but sometimes, after a cold reboot or something, it isn't working, and I think i need to specify in the .conf-file more info, to have it work every time.

How do I find that out? Is there some log I can check?

Windows 8, I was completely new to the boblight thing, so thoroughly confused at the start.

Looks like LIFX finally release the API. Any chance of this getting added in?

Thanks!

Thanks!

As a kickstarter I now have 8 of these beautiful bulbs..but their functionality is locked behind the terribly written android app!

+1million for functionality within this XBMC addon!

Would be great for lights to dim on play and brighted on pause!

If someone can point me in the right direction I would love to help!
Söder,

you shouldn't need "output" for lightpack, should you?

You can use a udev rule to give the device persistent naming as the /dev/ location can change. This is for my ir receiver:

Code:
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0471", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2093", SYMLINK+="lenovo_ir_receiver"

so its always /dev/lenovo_ir_receiver
Is the boblight daemon actually available on the macHuh I've got it to compile on it but and the XBMC plugin connects to it (or says it does) but it refuses to do anything. As far as I can tell my config file is good and I know the "LEDSTREAM" code on my teensy is working as it interfaces with other software fine but I wanted to switch to boblight cause the performance of prismatic is unreliable when video is playing.

I've looked everywhere and gotten no where Sad

The worst is it seems soo close since it compiles but i've gotten nowhere with my fiddling.
