I did not - the last upgrade I did is as indicated in my signature. I will do an image back up, have a go at an upgrade, and get back to you.

Thanks again for your time.

Thank you so much for the reply.

Unfortunately the fix does not appear to work.


(I changed 3 "postmap"s to "/usr/sbin/postmap" in total).


Users / Wizard -> Email setup - cannot make it work

Hi all, hope you're all well.

I am looking at setting up an email account with Gmail on LinuxMCE, but not having much luck in that I don't receive the test email. I have attached my settings. I have tried manual setup as well. As you can see the "Response:" from sending a test message is blank.

From the wiki this looks straightforward, and is known to be working in 1004 (I will get round to upgrading at some point...). Any pointers would be much appreciated!

Really cool.

Else I'll need to invest some time to relaunch the old orbiters on our phones in order to have a working one... We use this mainly to control our house, so it's very usefull/necessary for us.

Time well spent! And keep it installed so you have a temporary orbiter ready to use for when the guys are working on qOrbiter.

Press F7 (I think it is) on the system that is playing and it will bring up an orbiter onscreen that you can use to control the system.  The other option is to choose the room that is playing from another MD.

That is correct. F6, F7 and F8 are the magic buttons if using a keyboard (so make sure any mini keyboards you buy have those!)

F6 brings up the chapter/seek "rose" (arrows)
F7 brings up the main menu as phenigma says
F8 brings up the lighting/volume "rose" (arrows)

That might only be for the posh overlay (UI2) thinking about it, so it might just be F7 if you're using the basic (UI1) overlay. Have a play!

What is your chosen MD system? There are ways and means of making it into a PXE machine if it's not supported by default......

Have fun, and persevere, it's well worth it ;-)

"Moral of the story is, I'm watching PCU on my Raspberry PI, being controlled by my Android - do you guys understand what's going on? Do you understand how much this changes the game for LinuxMCE? I'm just asking. Just asking questions here". probably the best thing I have heard ever.

Good on you.

...I should also add that in terms of "feel", every device I've tried feels different (in terms of cursor movement). You always get used to it eventually I find.

I have tried several cheap gyro mini keyboards, and found this one ticks all the boxes for me. 14 quid.

Slightly weird is that the buttons are swapped, but when you are using it it kind of makes sense (closer to your thumb). Battery lasts nearly forever. F keys are all there and don't require shift/function to be pressed. Good range. Also has a card slot in case that's useful for you. My only gripe is that it doesn't have a laser pointer, but to be fair it's only the cats who suffer.

Thanks for the expert help guys. My 10.04 installation is showing "Installed: 4.1-2ubuntu3.4" which matches the candidate, so looks like I'm good.

Saw that but didn't twig that it was the issue I was having, thanks.

I followed the steps to make dash the default shell. I guess that solves the problem in itself.

I tried to then upgrade bash, but it said it was at the newest version - as far as I am aware it never got upgraded. So in any event I hope I'm safe.

Yeah I was afraid somebody might say that :-)

Is there any way to upgrade only the packages affected by this issue?


Users / Shellshock vulnerability - do we need to do anything?
« on: October 01, 2014, 10:08:51 am »
Not wanting to start a panic or anything, but thought I should ask the question seeing as we are all using Linux and not only that, using it as a gateway/router.

I had an email come round at work warning us of this potential weakness. It was recommended we run the following command...
env X="() { :;} ; echo vulnerable" /bin/sh -c "echo this is a test see if we are vulnerable. If I am to believe this test, then apparently I am.

What can we do, if anything?

For non-Dianemo users, I think I am right in saying that no option exists for controlling a lightweight non-MD no-orbiter generic media device?

I think phenigma's work on the RPi MD looks exciting and I'm looking forward to trying it, but if there were an option to install some generic media software onto RPi, and control that via the standalone touch screen orbiters, that would be interesting as well.
