How to edit guisettings.xml Dharma
Hi can someone give me the terminal command to edit guisettings.xml

uhm. you don't edit that file by hand. if you insist,

<yourpreferrededitor> ~/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml

where yourpreferred editor can be 'nano' for instance.
Thats not working

No? Do you mind giving more information about what you experience when you attempt to follow his instructions?

You do realize he is telling you the path to the file and how to open a file from terminal in nano?

nano ~/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml

Even if the path was incorrect nano would open an empty file. Is there any chance your are doing something wrong?
This is what iv done gone into terminal and put in:
<nano> ~/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml

and i keep getting no such file or something similar.

Im running a fresh install of Dharma 10.0Huh
did you try nano without the <>? I think perhaps you should avoid doing advance stuff like editing xml manually if you are struggling to open the file. No offence, but this is pretty much heading towards disaster.
Dharma has the enable vfd option removed i thought this was the only way to get it to work.
