    Slimserver 7.0 and Alienbbc 2.0

    Trying out both above - I just can't seem to get Slim (whoops I mean Squeezecentre) to pick up Alien in the Internet Radio listing (although it is listed in the new Extras area) - normally I just muddle through but I'm stumped... help please.

    What OS are you using ?
    How did you install AlienBBC ?
    Did you restart Slimserver ?

    Slimserver 7.0 and Alienbbc 2.0

    I found the (Linux) permissions in the archive caused the subdirectories
    of the plugin to be unreadable to the server when extracted, and got a
    similar effect. A bit of chmod'ing fixed that.

    I also couldn't get the plugin settings page to work until I fixed this.

    I think you have installed Alien in the wrong directory as it should not appear under Extras.

    Use the .exe installer as it will ensure Alien is installed in the correct directory. Remember to delete the old Alien folder first.

    Also, it would be better to use the .exe installer as there is an file error in the Windows ZIP install.

    Still no joy

    Hmmmm thought that using the Alien exe installer would work but still no sign of Alien - might have to go back to 6.5 - pity as 7.0's scanning is definitely better.

    A bit more info would help. The whole point of a beta is to solve problematic installations.

    Can you see if there is an Alien sub-directory in the slimserver ?

    Does AlienBBC still appear in the Extras menu ?

    Doe you have RTSP entries in the Server Setting/Filetypes menu ?

    Was still a clean install or an upgrade from 6.5. which already had AlienBBC ?

    ok more info

    Can you see if there is an Alien sub-directory in the slimserver ?

    its at C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\Plugins\Alien

    whereas all other plugins appear at

    C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\Slim\Plugin

    Does AlienBBC still appear in the Extras menu ?

    After the exe install no.

    Doe you have RTSP entries in the Server Setting/Filetypes menu ?

    No

    Was still a clean install or an upgrade from 6.5. which already had AlienBBC

    De installed 6.5 and previous alien, installed 7 and Alien 2.0 from scratch.

    All other Internet radio correct and present, other extras ok - is install going to wrong directory perhaps?

    The directory is correct and it should contain 9 files and 5 sub directories.

    All the signs are that the AlienBBC plugins has not been found by slimserver.

    OK now fixed with thanks to bpa

    Well I know its fixed and I can now see Alien - Im not exactly sure how or why to be honest - it may have been after I restarted the pc.
