    Ditto on the "770 gathering dust" comment...would be interested in any progress towards getting SP running on the older devices. I originally bought it to run the SC web UI, but then SBC happened!

    This is great news, especially as I recently acquired a N800 and a N770 through the generosity of another forum member. Could you possibly post a more detailed how-to? I'm comfortable with a Linux command line and doing simple things like running `make', following (very) clear instructions on lines to comment out, etc. Most of my experience is on debian and Ubuntu, so I hope it's not too big a leap to Maemo, but still I'm not familiar with the Maemo environment at all yet.

    Some help on connecting the dots (such as exactly how to tweak the skins) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I'd also like to get Squeezeplay running on my 770. Are there any instructions anywhere?

    Thanks

    This isn't really running Squeezeplay on Maemo natively, but using Squeezeplay through VNC to make the N770 a 'light Controller' could also be useful to someone.
    These are the steps I took so far:
    1) Install tightvncserver on my (Ubuntu) box:
    'sudo apt-get install tightvncserver'
    2) Start it up once to get needed configuration files created: 'vncserver'
    3) Set a password for VNC to get minimal security: 'vncpasswd'
    4) Install openbox, which is needed to get a nice fullscreen decor-less SP
    window: 'sudo apt-get install openbox'
    5) Make vncserver run openbox at startup by adjusting '~/.vnc/xstartup'.
    This is mine:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    unset SESSION_MANAGER
    xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
    xsetroot -solid grey
    x-terminal-emulator -geometry
        80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    openbox-session &
    6) If not already present create a file '~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh' to start Squeezeplay (don't forget to make it executable). Mine looks like this:
    Code:
    /home/squeeze/squeezeplay/build/linux/bin/squeezeplay.sh &
    If I had installed Squeezeplay to /opt/ like jhong it would look like this:
    Code:
    /opt/squeezeplay/bin/squeezeplay.sh &
    7) Make Sqeezeplay appear fullscreen and without window decorations. Create a file '~/.config/openbox/rc.xml' with these contents:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <openbox_config xmlns="http://openbox.org/3.4/rc">
      <applications>
        <application name="jive">
          <decor>no</decor>
          <fullscreen>yes</fullscreen>
        </application>
      </applications>
    </openbox_config>
    8) Make vncserver start at startup with the right resolution for the N770. Adjust '/etc/rc.local' like this (substitute YOUR_LOGIN with your username):
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh -e
    #
    # rc.local
    #
    # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
    # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
    # value on error.
    #
    # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
    # bits.
    #
    # By default this script does nothing.
    sudo -b -H -u YOUR_LOGIN /usr/bin/vncserver :11 -geometry 800x480
    exit 0
    Hopefully I didn't miss any of the steps I took.
    The biggest part is still missing, namely adjusting the Squeezeplay skin (WQVA Little Font) to the screen size and resolution of the N770. So far I only made it's window be 800x480 in resolution.

    Grazie signorRossi. As you say, it's not running native, but it's worth a try when I get 'round to it.

    My N770 gets dusty and I would love to use it as nice remote control... (the Squeezecenter Web GUI with the N770 skin was just way to slow on it)

    +1 for the N800 tablet just sitting here begging to be a controller. I'm certainly willing to test some builds if given installation instructions.
