He is using the qt4 version, you are using the qt5 one?

I feel so behind!  :)

At this point, in order to upgrade to qt5, is it necessary to use the SDK and compile manually, or is there an install package, or does it come with your latest nightly builds?

Just curious.  Or would it actually be more helpful to you if I just stayed with qt4 for testing purposes?

Qt5 is the future as it has more features
Qt4 has more stuff actually implemented because its what I started with

As far as how to get it, just get the apk. teh Qt5 version ships with the libs.

Updates for the qt4 phone skin. update your skins directory.

Updated apk's on both Qt4/Qt5 Versions
Recommend deleting existing LinuxMCE directory on SD card, letting it create a new one.
Most changes resolve around minor ui issues while floorplan views are implemented.

Also, and this will sound shitty, thank you to the jerks who write 1 star reviews because you decided to setup your linuxmce different from the way its designed to run. You are truly awesome people.

No really, I mean that. Can I get links to your work? I promise to be as fair.

That's pretty sad. Unfortunately those who are going to be downloading it from the market generally aren't going to be the ones to understand that this is undergoing testing. And they have the "power" to rate it, so if it doesn't work, bam 1 star. Why don't you take it down off the market for now? We should be using the nightly build anyway right?

Cheers,
Matt.

Golgj4 I find The work around for live testing my apps on the Android market is to prefix it with testing... Or beta or something then releasing a separate app once you get to the release stage..  Kinda ala chrome and chrome beta. That way you can minimise bad comments on the main release. On your main release you then reply to the idiots comments and tell him he didn't set it up right :-)

I guess my thinking was I didn't want to keep showing videos without having something to put in peoples hands. and the answer to most of their problems was

1) edit the config file...something we do a lot around here. haha
2) samsung galaxy III guy im guessing hit one of those problem releases before they had proper beta testing.

lesson learned and do you think i should remove it from the market? Seriously an option if the end result is a bad image for linuxmce (what I want to avoid)

also, working furiously on the floorplans and configuration file editor. will post update later

thanks for your input guys.

seems like I can't get it to start. I received the update via playstore. Deleted the linuxmce folder on the sdcard...I see a green bar, but nothing is happening.
Got an htc evo3d with ics

okay...I did a little follow-up on this thread...moved the skins to the android folder.
Now qt5 dies upon starting. qt4 has now connected, but so far I only see the bottom menu:Advanced, power, sleeping...and exit

Sorry this is such a hassle...

Setup Instructions
wget http://langstonball.com/qorbiter/setupQorbiter.sh -O /tmp/setupQorbiter.sh
sudo chmod u+x /tmp/setupQorbiter.sh
sudo /tmp/./setupQorbiter.sh

i would do those steps, then run it again. a lot has changed in how it gets its startup information.

I deleted my LinuxMCE folder and then updated everything I could, ran the script you just mentioned, and I get a screen that looks like this:

Did you have any 404 errors while downloading? earlier when I was helping maverick, we ran into problems related to linuxmce dns. im in irc now if you'd like speedier assistance.
