Designer
« on: August 11, 2012, 03:01:00 am »
I am again stuck on getting this application launched so that I can continue working on skins and other recent requests such as the onscreen keyboard.  Below are my exact commands and inputs.

From this link
- I download  http://deb.linuxmce.org/QuickDesigner.tar.gz

It places the tar.gz in my Desktop folder so I navigate there and enter
Quote
tar -zxvf QuickDesigner.tar.gzar
This unpacks 6 .jar files into a new folder /Desktop/lib and places a single QuickDesigner.jar in my Desktop folder

Per the wiki I enter this command
Quote
java -Xmx256m -jar QuickDesigner.jar

A popup window comes up and has the following fields autopopulated and two fields blank

mySQL server address     192.168.80.1
mySQL server port          3306
database name               pluto_main
user name
user password

I enter anonymous nopass as a guess because that is what is populated for the schema database in the admin page

as soon as I press enter I get more than I would copy paste here, and because its error spam I dont know how I could do a pastebin command.

The summary of this output that looks like a possible error to me is:

Internal Exception: java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'anonymous'@'192.168.80.1' (using password: YES)

I see this and then a list of the files I recognise from the Desktop/lib folder plus others that are new.  At the end of this list is the words "... 34 more"

This spam repeats over and over.

You need to grant permission to allow the program to access the database.

In mysql:

mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON pluto_main.* TO anonymous@192.168.80.xxx IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

replace xxx with the IP of your machine.

p.s. I personally do not use QuickDesigner, but rather use the original Pluto HADesigner tool, so I can't really help you there.

okay it took me a while but I found the command to get into mysql

from mysql >
Quote
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON pluto_main.* TO anonymous@192.168.80.1 IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

The response from mysql was:
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.08 sec)

I typed exit until I was back as my username at Desktop

I tried again to run QuickDesigner and am getting the same access denied error.


I also looked for HADesigner dl link on the wiki but was unable to find it, is it still available?

Okay its functional,  I was being an idiot and if I wasnt copy pasting commands without thinking about what they do I would have figured this out sooner.

GRANT PERMISSIONS ~ verify with "password"

I entered the database settings as "nopass" 

So I changed the QuickDesigner.properties txt file to read "password"

Thanks for your patience.

Hi.

Continous improvement for the UI is essential.

Are there other skins under development?
The wiki page about Designer (wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Designer) is outdated. All links to the software are broken (as far as I can tell).

Perhaps there is more info on skins somewhere else.
