But isnt that files just the file that translate lirc to xbmc? Its in remote.xml I say what function the key shall have?

The "userdata" it refers to is a link which explains where that is on your machine. As I say, please let us know if there's something we can do to make it clearer. It's very important to us to make sure the manual is as comprehendible as possible.

=) Ok, well, it's a little bit confused for me, when there is the ~/.xbmc with some files (I guess mostly userdata), and also /usr/share/xbmc

and there is a folder /userdata in both. And I find the default remote.xml at /usr/share/xbmc but I shall put it in ~/.xbmc

=)

That can maybe be explained better.

But thanks for a great wiki and a great forum.

So if we just rename the "userdata" folder that XBMC comes with that'll solve it?

I really want to remove this confusion completely.

Just mention both paths in the doc and explain that the system wide/default files are stored in one place but they can be overridden by uder specific files.
If I understand it correcly this is how Linux normally works? It is not that hard to understand.
to add more confusion to this.... Smile

If i edit remote.xml in \xbmc\system\keymaps
nothing changes, same happens if i put the remote.xml in \xbmc\userdata

The only thing that worked for me is to put the remote.xml in
\.xbmc\userdata\keymaps\
But the keymaps subfolder didnt even exist so i had to create it. that however
could have been some bad config in my system.

I copied /usr/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml to ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml, and then edited the new.

That worked for me, and I guess thats how it should be.

Am I correct if I say that these buttons on my remote are not used by my MCE Remote, since they are not in my Lircmap.xml?

Can I just add them there, giving them a xbmc name and then give that button a global function in my remote.xml?

Can I just add them there, giving them a xbmc name and then give that button a global function in my remote.xml?

/Söder

I tried that, and that worked. Now I understand that XBMC already hade some functions for the keys Clear, Enter, Star and Hash.

What I've been missing is the funcion ActivateWindow(shutdownmenu) (S on a keyboard)

My big PLAY button is called <title> and brings up the ContextMenu when in menues, and brings up the codec info when in fullscreen.

But there is no ContextMenu when Im in main menu, and I would like to use that button for the ActivateWindow(shutdownmenu).

Is this the right way then? Will that override the global function?

Code:
<Home>
    <remote>
      <menu>XBMC.Skin.ToggleSetting(HomeViewToggle)</menu>
      <info>XBMC.ActivateWindow(SystemInfo)</info>
      <clear>XBMC.ActivateWindow(Weather)</clear>
      <hash>XBMC.ActivateWindow(Settings)</hash>
      <title>ActivateWindow(shutdownmenu)</title>
    </remote>
  </Home>

Thanks!

I was wrong. It first worked, and now it doesnt. Only the default is working. =( What is wrong?

EDIT: I used the wrong way to disable functions. <!button> worked.

Can someone please upload the old remote.xml so that we don't have to manuall mess with this!
Since we are talking about keymaps changing, is it normal that evertime I update XBMC that my keymap file seems to go to default? I now just copy and paste my good file back, but am I correct in saying that the old file gets overwritten on an update?

Did you update the file in userdata or the system wide file? I am guessing that the system wide file will be updated.
