No.  There were no install/configure directions or links to install/configure directions with the app.

So its a manual config as opposed to the automagical config.

I will check into it.

Like I said...

"Did I miss something ???   As I don't see any other directions."

...read this thread and others...you need to do some setup in Web Admin at your Core as per Web Orbiter 2.0's. See the setup section here; http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Web_Orbiter_2.0

Out of interest - with this version and not locking it to Landscape - does it still crash on rotate? I made a couple of little changes that I thought might fix it but I couldn't replicate the problem with any hardware I had or the emulator.

I can't seem to make it crash, but that said, I can't seem to get it to auto-rotate (auto-rotate setting is on "default"). I do however think that this is an issue with my phone though, as sometimes the auto-rotate feature is a bit flakey (I'm running LeeDroid and I botched something up a few weeks ago).

Cheers,
Matt.

I think it must be your hardware or your Android build as we certainly dont' see that problem here on our various Android phones. I installed the App on my Samsung Galaxy Ace last night and its performing well on that phone too by the way too.

All the best
