Title: UI questions
Post by: Zeratul on June 06, 2008, 10:52:21 am
First of all maybe a silly question but how do you EXIT from this screen ?
(http://wiki.linuxmce.org/images/thumb/0/0d/FileBrowserUI2M.jpg/400px-FileBrowserUI2M.jpg)

I have a touchscreen (behaving like a single button mouse), no keyboard, no mouse, no remote.
All I find right now is kill X through SSH or power cycle the system.

Second:
UI 2 medium at 800x600 has quite some text running out of the "borders" of the black boxes. It's a bit as if it's only tested properly on 1024x768. Anyone else having this problem ? Is there a known solution ?

UI2 was designed to be used by a remote, such as a Windows MCE remote, or a mouse, or a Fiire Chief.

In all cases, there is a back button which can get you out. (f2 on the keyboard)

For touch screens, use UI1.

I would suggest using an external orbiter as well, get an unused PDA, or a Nokia N800 or an old tablet PC...it will work better....failing that, just use UI1 on your on-screen display.

I don't want to use UI1 because UI2 is so much nicer. It's the eye candy of LMCE, it's the thing that makes people say 'wow'. I want the photo screen saver in the background. Digital picture frame was always on my wish list.

On top of that this touchscreen has cost me more than $800 and is built into the wall of my house.

So can't we simply add an 'X' to the top right corner? The X is there in other screens (UI2), but not consistently everywhere.

The site with the casts seems a bit slow but Ill try again later.

About the 800x600 question: same tool to use I guess ?
