I think after the updates I put yesterday, qorbiter is broken. I didn't have it in any room anymore, so I uninstalled it, deleted the linuxmce-folder from the tablet rebooted an reinstalled it, but it won't work. I got a screenshot for your viewing pleasure
Dear All, It happened the same to me.  I was testing with a Samsung S6, no linuxmce folder either, neither the create a new orbiter option.  What it did worked was the finding a previous created orbiter.
I did also tryed on a Samsung tab2 which worked fine before the update, after the update same as maverick.  It seems to me that the issue is at the lmce server side.
I had as reference point a Samsung s4 without doing any updates on the android app and the same results.

LMCE version:
qorbiter qt5a1-gl

I hope this info is helpful
Willing to test any update with both of the systems.


Hi Phenigma,

You are absolutely right!! Thanks for the response!!!, let me correct that right away.  The problem is solved now I just did not have time to update.
I have no idea (probably for my continuous never ending learning curve on linux) why but I went to KDE desktop and open the package manager as root and it did show several more packages that needed upgrade, that did not where shown at the console using apt-get.  Upgrade them all and problem solved.  I did had to do apt-get install on one that the package manager didn't wanted to do it but apt-get did the trick.
System up and running!


Dear All,

After doing update/upgrade/disklessTBZ  and today I'm getting a issue with two packages.
The weird thing is that no computer within 192.168.80 network can access outside but the core.  Core is ok

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a gives this
Setting up lmce-diskless-tools ( ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/lmce-diskless-tools.postinst: line 48: /usr/pluto/bin/ No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing lmce-diskless-tools (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of pluto-newmdinteractor:

  Package lmce-diskless-tools is not configured yet.

It appears that there is a bug in diskless tools.  But also newmdirector has issues.    Any ideas?

And it is called....

Hello to all, for future references, this was my output, It may help others.

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Google-chrome-stable ()", "Google-chrome-stable"

So the class_instance.class_Name for LMCE will be:

Google-chrome-stable.Google-chrome-stable. (this is what will be needed on webadmin)

Hello to all,

My two cents on Netflix!.  I Installed Google Chrome and I was able to get Netflix running Perfectly.  I Started a Post not long ago sharing how to do it. Just a few tricks on video acceleration for chrome and nvidia and running as root.
I was able to run it without any issues on a Zotac Zbox I use as MD.

The only thing I don't know how to do is to make LMCE start Chrome instead of Firefox.

Im very sorry for being so MIA as of late. Work, Life, etc has left me with little time to keep folks up to date on the happenings of development.

*Last month has been spent converting from networks skins (problematic on multiple levels) to an new way of doing things. Basically, users wont half to be part techie to update their skins. Skins will be in the application from now on.

That means that if you have recently grabbed Qorbiter for android, you should already have them on your device. I am working on the remote screens now before I make it the default.

There is a setting which will allow you to choose if you want the internal vs external. This video shows how to change back and forth.

Maverick: mythtv screen isnt in there yet, but the live tv screen is. That means that when i get back from my biz trip, I can enable the mythtv screen as its basically the same as the livetv.

Thanks again to you intrepid users who are so patient. It really is helpful even if it seems like nobody is listening to your issues / responding.

And now for this
*note the ios version is using the internal skins.


Hi,  I din't seem to work for me which version is the one you are using on that youtube video?, it looks different than mine.  Im using the one I get from the webadmin.  If I download the one is on your link, I get the white background and that's it!. 
Version from my webadmin : qt5a1-gl, but is says debug at the installer.  Yours is the same, but after it says loading, I get a white screen and that's it!
The debug version does not show that skin option, can I change it manually at the xml?

Hi Phenigma!

Sorry for the delay!.  I just needed to do some homework, I guess I gave up easy on this one.  Netflix is running perfectly under chrome.  I just need to know now, how to add It under computing!

I followed this link:

Basically is just to enable the "Override software rendering list" restart chrome and voila!
You need to do the trick of the google chrome to run as root, all my test where done under kde desktop.  I don't know how to add it to LMCE UI, maybe someone can help.

Enjoy Netflix, as easy as that!..


I hope I don't get knocked out of the forum for this question  ;D

But I havent found anywhere in the post info to clear this bug in my mind.
Here it goes!.  In 1204, Is it still necesary after the MD is created to select at the webadmin if the md's video card is "standard video card" to "Geforce or TNT2", is it still needed?
I follow the rule that if it is working, dont touch it!, but when things start to go wrong, then is the time for testing :)!
If md installation is left alone it will install nvidia drivers, in my case v.304.  If I click on the md and change to geforce, then it prompts on the orbiter that pluto nvidia drivers are downloading.  Which drivers are this?.
In my case it never finish downloading the file and I just delete that md and start all over!, why I did that??? Ill create a new post on that... so.. anyone that could answer??

Hi mikeybs,

Any progress with this?.  I just installed one last night.  And can see 4 sensors detected.  Light sensor and temperature, the other two are detected as generic.  did you manage to get at least one working?

Hi to all,
Netflix is now supported in Linux by using Google Chrome.
I try it out but it is extremely slow because of the video acceleration on the loaded nvidia drivers of my zbox media director apparently are not supported.  I havent give too much thought on upgrading the video drivers, but I was curious if someone else have try this.
Because if this works properly, it would be as easy as adding a link in computing to launch netflix, without the issue of wine, etc, etc.
Hope to hear many opinions

Hello to All,
Im testing it on a Samsung S4.  It appears to be working but my screen is messy, only boxes with oversize text, like if skins are not working.
I could humble suggest to update the wiki page because by reading this post, is that I realized that skins are loaded by using apt-get, (wiki page
How to I get the skings working, or at least get the text with a readable size?
