This freshly baked test-release has a few things
*improved support for different directories
*a wip skin directory for people to play with

Please test that it installs properly. Then, AND ONLY THEN, update your skins directory :)
How do you know if it installed properly? It will say it cant connect to 192.168.80.1
If there is no, ip, it i didn't install correctly. and you should revert to a saved apk.

Without making a long story too long, a lot of the buttons will be broken / empty while I update them. I refactored the threading implementation and a lot of things changed under the hood.

Yes, do an svn up. I should have made this a two phase thing but meh, no offense but I just need to keep rolling forward so I dont always have time to make the transitions smooth. From what I could determine in the log, the problem is its trying to load stuff that isnt there. so yes, please go ahead and svn up.

Also, nice to see the function to find the external storage location is working :)

purps, sounds good  .... :-)

I'll try to write a list of needed Buttons and their sizes.
I can offer my current PSD file for download if you want.

What else do you need?

Thanks.

ochorocho


OK great. If there's a particular style or colour scheme that you would me to start with, then let me know.

Do the images I produce have to be in PSD format? And I assume you need transparent background?

Cheers,
Matt.

PSD is fine.
Yep, i need a transparent background.

Would be great to stay with the "steam punk style" ... but i guess this is even more time-consuming.
here are all my files i used: http://cloud.knallimall.org/public.php?service=files&dir=%2Fadmin%2Ffiles%2FLMCE-Skin-redpad

and sorry, still need to list the required images :-/

Cheers,

I have a little toy here listening to the name of Panasonic KX-UT670. This is a SIP-phone with touchscreen, running on android 2.2
unfortunately it doesn't have playstore installed and installation of software is done via a dedicated admin function. I was however able to download the latest qorbiter from the link provided by golgoj.
For ministro I had to go to sourceforge, because logging in to google playstore via web listed ministro as being installed on my cellphone and didn't really care to install on this unit...dunno, maybe I'm too stupid for that one...
Anyways, I downloaded ministro II from sourceforge, installed it and started qorbiter....but it said this version wasn't compatible and it wanted to upgrade ministro service...but so far that fails. How can I get this to run?
By the way this phone supports configuring via a cfg-file, which means it could be made plug&play for lmce (at least I think so)
