Hi Raymond,

I dont know if you saw this thread http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=11582.30

Cfernandes and I had a bit of trouble at first, but was resolved with the help of Uplink.
Maybe its similar to your problem? If you try to open weborbiter from a webbrowser, does it open?

Hi Karel,

thanks for the quick response, actually it did not create the /usr/pluto/orbiter/bits directory,
after creating that it sadly still did not work,

Andrew or Uplink, i got into a bit of trouble could one of you help?

i installed
http://deb.linuxmce.org/pluto-proxy-orbiter_2.0.0.44.11071224175_i386.deb
http://deb.linuxmce.org/pluto-website-admin_2.0.0.44.11071224175_i386.deb
and the new Dianemo iOS Orbiter v1.2.

also created a dir: sudo mkdir -p /usr/pluto/orbiter/bits

but the Dianemo iOS Orbiter v1.2 and the existing RoamingOrb are not working anymore

i did: /usr/pluto/bin/Proxy_Orbiter -d 40 -r localhost which gave me:
Code: [Select]
Proxy_Orbiter, v.2.0.0.44.11071224175

any help would be much appreciated,

It looks like you ran this without a valid DISPLAY variable in the terminal. I think DirectFB is attempted when you do that. No idea why. I think SDL decides to try it out.

You'll be "happy" to know that possy's debs don't create /usr/pluto/orbiter/bits :) That's why things still don't work out of the box. I'll chase him up for a fix.

Which is one of the reasons, why the deb has not found its way into the repo atm, but just uploaded so people can manually test stuff, without breaking everybodies proxy orbiters.

The new proxy_orbiter is stable... we've been using it for weeks now. Its your deb thats not ;-)

Seriously the new proxy_orbiter is completely backwardly compatible with the previous versions and we have not seen any issues.

All the best

Yeah, comes from putting out debs right after some people initially put stuff into our repo... ;)

A new deb will be available shortly, and should arrive with a regular apt-get update / upgrade cycle for 810 and 1004

Hi,

Thanks. Yes the earlier versions I showed in my videos had a bug in the code that manages how the images are rendered and sometimes images hat had been downloaded were flagged as not available and this slowed things down a fair bit. That bug was squashed ;-).

We're still looking at the best way to deliver better UI technology and better UI design capability while making sure that we can move a future Orbiter to any device that seems appropriate with minimum effort. Golgoj4's work is impressive and we like it a whole lot but we have not come to a decision yet about our direction on this. Whatever we do in this area you can be sure it will be made available to the community under the GPL - that is a given.

Whichever way we go on this golgoj4 can always get some input from us if he needs to.

All the best


Andrew

Thank you very much for the reply, and that is a perfectly reasonable position. I misunderstood your earlier post on the subject. Great work guys... looks great.
I never quit... I just ping out.
