    piCorePlayer with Jivelite on Pollin Touch TFT

    Hello,

    i run an Raspberry Pi2 with an 7" Touch Display.
    Its a display with 1024 x 600 resolution. The Skin in Jivelite is to small for the display.

    The distro Max2play has a patch for the Jivelite Skin.

    Is it possible to integrated this patch in piCorePlayer?

    Regards vdr-box

    Does it not work at all, or not for best results?

    I added a 1024x600 grid layout a few days ago, but it's not available
    for piCorePlayer yet (unless you want to install it manually using scp
    etc.). I should probably apply the same changes to the Joggler skin, too...

    If you are comfortable tinkering on the command line: get the latest
    JogglerSkin and PiGridSkin from
    https://github.com/ralph-irving/jive...e/jive/applets
    and copy them to ~/.jivelite/userpath/applets on the pCP. Then restart
    jivelite.

    Hi Michael.

    The Display works fine, but not withe the best resulution.

    Today evening i test you information at home. At work i have only the Pi without
    the display ;-)

    My first test, i clone your git and copy them to ~/.jivelite/userpath/applets.
    But after a reboot of the Pi i lose this downloaded files. How can i fix it?

    Iirc piCorePlayer has most of its filesystem in ram to save SD card wear, there are more procedures required to make file changes permanent.

    No, just the two skin subfolders I mentioned. You'd actually not even
    need to copy the images folder. Only the text and lua files. And watch
    the "jivelite for picoreplayer" thread as Ralphy is updating the
    jivelite image every now and then.

    There's a piCorePlayer menu in jivelite which allows you to backup the data.

    Okay.

    I download the Skin PiGridSkin and after a restart of jivelete i see in skins
    the point "Grid Skin (1024x600)".

    I write the config with the Menu "Settings write to SD Card" and after a reboot
    everything is fine.

    Perfect.

    Many Thanks at all.

    The next is the Touch Screen, but for this i make a separate thread.
