Text & Labels disappear!
#1
On latest RC5 using LibreElec 8.95.2 with everything default.

Occasionally all text and labels disappear. Image, artwork and logos are all still there and Kodi works correctly if i navigate via memory.

Bizarrely switching TV off and on again fixes it - but the whole time the box (Chromebox) stays on.

Any ideas!?

Are you using profiles and if so, are you also using the Login-screen at Kodi instead of loading the last used profile?

If not you could also try reloading the skin during Kodi startup using an autoexec.py. 

- create an "autoexec.py" file in your userdata folder
- fill it with the following content:


import xbmc

xbmc.executebuiltin('ReloadSkin()')

In case you are using profiles, place that file at the userdata folder and at each profile folder (userdata/profiles/<profilename>). That will cause that every profile will reload the skin at login/start.

The missing labels are a known issue if profiles and the login screen is in use. Noone is working on the profiles support currently. So, if that´s the case for you, you have to deal with that issue unfortunately.

No I'm not, though have done in the past so perhaps there are some remnants.

Thanks for the autoexec.py example, will try that.

Unfortunately, this is still an issue in Leia 18.3.

Fortunately, your trick works well for the time being, thank you!

How are you testing it?

That PR was closed, ie not merged. Are you building yourself?

It was superseded by 16840 (PR) which was merged into master. Will only be in v19 nightlies.
There is a backport PR for it for v18, but once again that hasn't been merged yet, so won't be available unless your building yourself. 16852 (PR)

Yes, that was my fault! I thought the PR is already available in the nightly build. Sorry many times!

Btw, that Backport has been merged now and will be available for Kodi 18.5 after we released it.

According to Commit PR #16852 is merged in the release of 08.11.2019.

So I tested kodi-20191108-d5829aa4-Leia-armeabi-v7a.apk and can't see any improvement. I now wait for another nightly and post the results.

The fix does not fix the problem.

Tested with: kodi-20191111-3be3c3d9-Leia-armeabi-v7a.apk

Disable smartredraw via advancedsettings - Android is special here in every case. The fix worked on Linux.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

Code:
<gui>
<smartredraw>true/false</smartredraw>
</gui>

Both settings have been tried (true and false) and both have no effect and unfortunately do not fix the problem Sad

Then you need to open your own ticket on github. Make sure to provide all logfiles and make sure to state that you have this issue after above fix on android only.
