Cool... I updated the link in the Android Touch Orbiter page to the latter.

Many thanks.
Starting another thread to ask a Touch Orbiter topic....

Thanks for the link... downloading now. If it works nicely I will wikify because as far as I know it is not in the wiki yet.

OK... clicking the bottom right of the screen does work to get me back (kills the web app) so that is a start. Would be nice if I could kill the screensaver and *stay* on the web app but... as I say... ultimately I want to go further.

Langston- Thanks yes, have read teh Developing a DCE Device a couple of times and will redo so when I take it further.
The goal, I think would be the following-
1. Provide on screen viewers for cameras set up on a separate zoneminder server ("device"). So, for example, under your security scenarios (menu) you could choose a camera as you can currently but in this case it would pop up a streaming video viewer than connects to the zoneminder streaming video server for the camera in question. The advantage of this (rather than connecting directly to the camera) is that you allow zoneminder to do the frame-grabbing as fast as it can and you don't fight with it to access the camera.
2. Provide two-way communication with zoneminder server - change run-states for example and receive alarm status and events data.
2.1 The purpose of events data is to be able to trigger LMCE actions based on zm events (eg. pop up viewer on alarm showing live feed and, potentially, most recent events as well), pop-up message on MD, etc etc.

Something along those lines. Basically allow zoneminder to do what it does best - monitor cameras - and let LMCE do what it does best - integrate devices, display media etc.

Progress is a bit slow, though, because I'm focussing on getting zoneminder dialled first.

... use the Android Orbiter for now
Thom... what is this "Android Orbiter" of which you speak?
As far as I was aware, you have two choices on an Android device - Qorbiter (in development) and Web Orbiter 2.0? Android Orbiter? Where do I find it and how do I install it?

Matt... what android app are you using to get your logs off your android. I've tried a couple but the logs are colourful but nothing like the detail you have.

so i assume everything is working fine since no responses? *ducks*
Last I checked, nothing was working for me I'm afraid.
I still get fatal error on the phone and it just dies on the tablet after doing the "connecting to" for a few secs. I will try to install on my wife's galaxy S4 over the weekend.
I've tried catlog on one device and logcat on the other but nothing seems to show up in the logs. Weird?

Golgog4, a couple of questions-
1. Presume it can work on the external network provided the right firewall ports are open (the ones in the wiki or have these changed) and provided you specify the IP of the core in the xml file.  Is that stuff all the same as before? Same location of xml file etc?
2. Is there anything I need to do on the core side apart from creating the device and all that. I haven't done anything since I first tested the QT4 version a few months ago.

Hi Thom

I tried renaming /usr/pluto/bin/ as you suggested. Afraid it doesn't seem to stop the problem happening.

Will try the MD rebuild now.

How about you, Matt?

Hey Farmboy... what IP address would that be (that your browser connects to)? If it's not then you will need to
a) setup the config file on the tablet
b) open a couple of ports in the linuxmce firewall.
This is detailed on the wiki somewhere so I hope I'm not pointing out the obvious.

Proline cheap 7" tablet with ICS: Qt5 launches... says connecting... and then dies... I think it said something similar to what crumble reported above regarding skin but it flashes too quickly to see.
HTC One V ICS: "Your application encountered a fatal error and cannot continue".

Was this following a recent upgrade for you too, jamo?
By recent, a few months, I'd say. Put it this way - I wasn't aware of it in the past but have become aware of it more recently so something must have changed somewhere...

Ok, here is what i did.  did a svn on my skins dir then reloaded router.  downloaded qt5 and ran it.  qt5 just closes.  downloaded qt4 and same thing happened.  then i tried deleting the previous qorbiter made reloading router, then making a new qorbiter reloading router and running qt4 again.  This time is does not just close but stays on the screen that is trying to connect to the router.   I let it try for about 10 minutes.  Now I am trying the same thing with QT5 will let you know.

Crumble - presume the wifi for your device is on the internal (lmce) network? If not, you have to change a few things to point to the IP of the dcerouter and to allow the right ports through the firewall. Sorry if this is pointing out the obvious.

I have experienced the same. Also, if I'm on a playlist and it's automatically moving between songs then the volume setting stays but if I manually change or add a new song then it also displays this behaviour - jump to 100%, then on up/down command, jump back to where it was.

Regarding the AV receiver - basically I think the reason this is different is probably because it's using digital audio so the volume setting is not on the MD but rather on the receiver. Digital audio does not have a volume setting at all.

It's a bit of a pain (the issue) and has also made me look like a bit of a tit when the sound suddenly blasts ;-)

I would suggest watching the logs as you do this and see what messages are being sent as the song changes. ...

Ah... this might help me.... clicking on bottom left or right of the screen.

However, I did read the rest of the related thread and see that the computing screen, as Thom says, is not the ideal place to stick things. Don't worry -with regard to zoneminder I definitely want to integrate it better in future if I stick with it as a camera monitor. Ideally I'd like it to be a first class application like Thom says in the thread. A zoneminder client... *dreams*

Users / Screensaver - can't exit if it kicks in while using firefox

I wonder if anyone else has this problem?

I've added a web link to my zoneminder server so I can put the camera montage up on the screen. It's quite a nice way of popping the cameras up on the TV when you want to keep an eye on things. Anyway, if I leave it for long enough the screensaver kicks in.... which is fine.... except that then I can't seem to exit. If I press the keyboard or mouse buttons I get a pointer (which moves) but no matter what I click or press the screensaver stays on.

The only way to get rid of it at this point is to either do a quick-reload of the router (from another orbiter obviously) or ctrl-alt-f2 to drop to a terminal and then ctrl-alt-f7 to go back to the X session. That more or less sorts it out.

I must confess, I haven't tried with any other websites since this is the only one I leave on the screen unattended for long enough to have the screensaver kick in. Will test and check.

But, in the meantime, does anyone else experience the same behaviour? Does anyone have any suggestions as to a fix? And... is there anywhere you can set the idle time before the screensaver kicks in? Or turn it off temporarily? Obviously it is disabled for some applications like movies but doesn't make sense to have it generally disabled for web browsing unless you specifically request it for a particular link. I don't use the youtube much via firefox because it doesn't work very well with my z-box (I think it's the radeon graphics card) but I imagine if people are watching long videos on you tube without touching the controls the same could occur.

Any thoughts?
