I've tried, but this didn't solve the problem. The folder 'bit' stays empty.
So i think that other things were wrong as well.


So i toke the decision of formatting the machine. And installing the 8.10-RC1.
And ....... now it's working! I can control my lights with my android phone!
Somewhere along the way, the update wasn't done correctly apparently.

Nice.

Now adding all my lights, checking out the different skins....

With the web orbiter now working you should also be able to use the Android native app as well. Search for the Android Touch Orbiter thread for details .....

Do you mean the Android Touch Orbiter?
From http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/AndroidTouchOrbiter ?

Is working... ;)


I just need to play around with the screen resolutions/skins so see what best fits me, and my DesireZ.
But... Rome wasn't build on one day.  :-X

Screen resolutions won't change too much visually as the Android touch orbiter scales the image received to your device resolution (This happens in both orientations, hence the squashed effect when orientated vertically).

My suggestion would be to have a resolution which is relative to your actual  device (eg: 1/4 of each dimension). You will get some graining depending upon how low you go but you will also get benefit from less data transfer.

Skins are best left at the ones based on the basic UI1 skin for touch devices...

I'm using now the iphone4 resolution. Works great with my HTC Desire Z.

I know, it's not ethic to use iphone and android together, but hey, it works... ;)

They are just resolutions. For that phone you should try "Nokia770". Should fit perfectly.

Cheers,
Matt.
