[LIVE] Complete EMUs/ROMs in Live (Acer Revo)
So I HAD my system working... XBMC Live (Dharma Beta 3) on a USB thumb drive running on an Acer Aspire Revo 3610. Everything WAS working... and then my thumb drive failed.

I've now installed Live (Dharma RC1) on the HDD of the PC. I've installed Launcher and Mupen64Plus. It launches fine, but XBMC is on in the background and Mupen could use some more cycles... So I installed xfwm4 Windows Manager and set it to run at startup by modding the runXBMC file as per these instructions. I've also created a launcher.sh file and modified my launchers.xml file as per post 66 in this thread and made it executable as per post 70. This is exactly what I did the first time when Dharma Beta 3 was installed on a thumb drive. It worked then... Now it doesn't. When I choose a rom to launch, it blinks back to the menu.

These are my files:

launch xfwm4 at startup
/usr/bin/runXBMC
Code:
echo "#!/bin/bash" >  /home/$xbmcUser/.xsession
[b]echo "/usr/bin/xfwm4&" >>  /home/$xbmcUser/.xsession[/b]
echo "/usr/bin/xbmc --standalone" >>  /home/$xbmcUser/.xsession

code to kill XBMC while emu runs
/home/xbmc/launcher.sh
Code:
usrbinkillall -STOP xbmc.bin
$@
usrbinkillall -CONT xbmc.bin
followed by a sudo chmod +x /home/xbmc/launcher.sh command to make it executable.

the launcher portion of my launchers.xml file
<long path>/launchers.xml
Code:
<launcher>
        <name>Nintendo 64</name>
        <application>/home/xbmc/launcher.sh</application>
        <args>/usr/games/mupen64plus --fullscreen --noask</args>
        <rompath>/home/xbmc/Roms/N64/</rompath>
        <romext>zip|ZIP|Zip</romext>
        <thumb>/home/xbmc/Roms/N64 png.png</thumb>
        <wait>true</wait>
        <roms> ...

        </roms>
    </launcher>

I think the problem is that either the windows manager xfwm4 isn't running, or the launcher.sh script isn't working. Is there a way I can check to see if the windows manager is running? Does any one else have a good idea as to why it wouldn't work this time around when it worked the last time?

Remember, If I point launchers.xml directly towards the emulator, it works... just too slowly. There is nothing wrong with any other part of the launchers.xml file.

Thanks in advance.

Edit 1:
Found error #1
in launcher.sh file
usrbinkillall should be /usr/bin/killall

Edit 2:
Found some errors in my xsessions log. I hope this helps. It seems as if the emus can't find the roms but I've triple checked the paths. I'm sure they're right.
