hello Alex and Dan, and the XIBO community… happy new year. …I saw xibo player was now available for linux so i jumpped in…testing it for 2 days now and i noticed some issues.
- Closing the terminal windows will close xibo and its watchgod. meaning, it wont auto-restart. If i start xibo player with the xibo icon, it launches the terminal too. when i open the options window from the terminal, it also will close if i close the terminal…launching xibo by the options windows also, opens xibo player, when you close player window, watchdog closes too i guess…i am experimenting this
when you launch the player from the options window and then you close the player, it does not restart. so I know xibo-player.options will open the options window and you can launch xibo from there but then the xibowatchdog is never launched and there fore if the player craches and close, it wont restart
No easy way to stop the player as it will restart immidiately covering the screen again and again. On a given windows environment, one can close the watchdog to prevent xibo player from relaunch.
It looks like, the best results, for now, is to use AUTO START to launch xibo player. That does not need the use of terminal. Though you will get an error on the screen. xibo player is now runing without the termian window, plus the watchdog is also active. you close the player, it reluanch again and again. so now how can I stop xibo complete? hard way i guess
Overall, THANK YOU for making it happen Alex, Dan and your team. Xibo has been my learning tool. I upgraded from version 1.8.11 to 1.8.13 easily, didnt loose any of my custom settings.
I have 44 screens all running on windows (3 on windws 10, the rest on windows 7) 40 in Canada, 4 in Ghana. so far so good.
so…can i close the terminal without loosing the xibo player?, i have ubuntu 18.04…xibo player version 1.8-R4…everything else works perfect for me
anybody got flash animation to play in their linux xibo player?..I have tried installing adobe flash plugins but none of my flash files play in my xibo…i dont have this issue on windows
