No - I'm at a wedding :), so might be a day or two. Check in the ubuntuforms and you might find an answer. It's not a joggler specific issue anyway.

Buzz is it possible to upgrade from v1.1 to v1.2 without re-image everything?

Thanks for the tip Buzz, Installed Nautilus and I can see the Network with it now. Seems like a problem with default system file manager.

Only remaining issue now is the multiple mounts... which show in Nautilus too....

Thanks for the help. Greatly appreciated.

I managed to hide the "Main Window" in this. Now I cant get to menus/settings.

Reinstalled... but it seems to remember even using the --purge when uninstalling.

you removed the top panel ?

For general ubuntu/xubuntu questions that are not joggler specific, you would be better to sign up on ubuntuforums or similar. or go on one of the irc channels.

If anyone would like to try out the upcoming version of xbmc (Frodo) which has now hit beta1 you can add the joggler testing repository:

edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/joggler.list and add

Code: Select all

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jools/joggler-testing/ubuntu precise main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/jools/joggler-testing/ubuntu precise main
then edit /etc/apt/preferences.d/joggler.pref and add

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: release o=LP-PPA-jools-joggler-testing
Pin-Priority: 1010
then

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc
and it should update

Hi BuZz

I've just tried your new Xubuntu 12.10 Quantal and I'm having huge problems to setup static IP. It works till restart. After restart Network Manager creates new "Wired Connection x" with new MAC. It's so annoying and I think I've tried everything since 2 days and nothing helps. Any chance you could have a look? I'm not sure is it me or there is a bug in 12.10.
One more thing. Sqeezeplayer is not running in full-screen mode (I still have xbuntu taskbar on top). Any idea how to change this?


Regards,
Kazan

the mac address should be set randomly and then saved in /etc/network/joggler-eth - check if you have that file. I will have a check on my system though, maybe something is not working right with the upstart script that handles this. if you don't have the file you can create it with a single line containing the mac address (in the format ##:##::##:##:##)

I don't manage the squeezeplay software. it is probably set to remove the gnome panels but not xfce panels. You could ask on the squeezeplay thread about this : http://www.jogglerwiki.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14

On a brand new install, having added the ppa, I am getting :

Code: Select all

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 xbmc : Depends: xbmc-bin (>= 2:12.0~git2012120201.9b5bc93-0ubuntu1~ppa1~precise) but 2:11.0~git2012072301.92de06e-0ubuntu1~ppa1~quantal is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Am I right in thinking it isn't trying to install from the correct repo?

I solved the issue by removing all the stuff from the instructions and doing a

Code: Select all

apt-add-repository ppa:jools/joggler-testing

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get install xmbc
then worked fine.

did you do the repository pinning ? else it will install the old version. I guess you did? also if using quantal you should replace "precise" with "quantal" in my instructions. the apt-add-repository will have done that of course.
