Full Version: [Beta 7] Problems with current Build

Hello,

since the current beta 7 there are some errors and feature requests in estouchy.

They are:

- "recently added movies" in main window aren't updated, movies -> sorted by newest is updated
- newest options from estaury v2 should be availible at estouchy (event log, file manager etc.)
- shutdown option should be configurable
- Sounds for selections would be nice

Thanks for help.

not sure about this one.. if there's a problem with it, it's likely an issue in kodi, not the skin.

eventlog: settings > system > logging > show event log
filemanager is accessible right from the homescreen, at the top of the main menu

it is: settings > system > power saving > shutdown function

but i don't think kodi supports audible feedback for touchscreen selections

In Estaury all is fine, I think it's an estouchy problem.

I know, but it should be the same like Estaury

Ok, I will test. But it would be nice it would be shown a popup to select the method. (shutdown, reboot etc.)

OK, can you check it. Is it different if the selection is from touch?


And new Point:
The Libreelec-Optios menu have to be added to the config window.
Like the Estaury skin from: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/Krypto...#L151-L156

Thanks for feedback.

both use different ways to fill the widgets. updating of the content is handled by kodi.
it's not something a skin can force to happen.

why? you need to keep in mind that ther'es way less screen space in estouchy compared to non-touchscreen skins.
- estouchy needs to run on 4:3 screens (less space compared to 16:9)
- estouchy needs lage buttons, you you can put only so much buttons on a single screen.

the main goal of estouchy is to run as an app on a tablet/phone.
unlike when you run kodi as an appliance on a htpc, options like sleep, hibernate or reboot don't really make much sense on a tablet.

i did when i created the skin. it didn't work ;-)

I know what you mean. I'm running kodi at rpi2 with the official touchscreen from raspberry Raspberry Pi 7" Touch Screen LCD with 800 x 480 pixels. And here the buttons in the options menu can be 50% smaller. Then it will be enough space for the same buttons as Estaury.
Perhabs it will be possible.

If this is the aim of this skin, the shutdown have do be configured. At a tablet kodi should only be closed and not rebooted or shutdown.
So the configuration of this option should be added.

That means, I have only to enable the option and then touchsound will be availible?

Nice to know :-) then it will be in in the next version. :-)

These points still exists. Tested with Kodi RC3.
In point one, these "recently added movies" will be updated if I reinstall the skin.

And the Libreelec guys don't know about the open work on it.Big Grin
