no i never did. i cant find the software either, so i dont know if i got it before the link came down. im hoping they have come up with an easier alternative to hadesigner, since you cant find much on it anymore. guess we will see. some people had been looking for the manual and the software....ill keep looking for the software.

that would be cool. i really would like a better skin. paul has said on other forums that ha designer is a bit of a pain to learn and work with. so i was hoping he had found a better solution somehow. until then i will try to learn it and try it out some.

HA Designer is an application to build a new skin for the Orbiter. I have no idea why it was called like that :)

Actually, I didn't play with HA Designer yet. But I suspect that you should setup ODBC connection manually. I read about HA Designer a bit. As I understand it isn't so user friendly. So, possible that's why the link was removed from the Plutohome wiki.

HA = Home Automation most likely.

If you Ignore the error you can get to the configure option where you can see the ODBC connection string.   You need the mysql odbc connector, and also configure your LMCE mysql server to accept connections from outside.

Designer also needs skins from the LMCE machine.   Those come from a folder available on the LMCE machine (just copy them).  Sorry I don't remember offhand exactly where.
