    Auto Dim Display no longer working

    Auto Dim Display no longer does anything on my system. How do I get it working again?
    On my LEAP 42.1 openSUSE system, I put the plugin in /usr/libexec/Plugins

    Perhaps related - Auto Dim Display has disappeared from my plugin list. Anyone know how I can get it back? This is for LMS 7.9 on a Windows 10 box.

    Some plugin repositories have gone offline permanently as Google has
    shut down their Google Code offering. Quite a few repositories were
    hosted there, and their authors didn't care to offer it a new place.

    And then there are a few who probably are only offline temporarily.

    Do you know who the plugin's author was?

    It's from Peter Watkins. And tux.org, where his repository lies, is vanished:

    Server down?
    Line down?
    DNS down?

    The disappearance of repositories is a bad sign...

    Perhaps slimdevices.com can host them all?

    I had to copy the plug in from a different machine to get it. But since it no longer seems to work, that is a wasted effort. Sigh.

    On Debian 8 and LMS 7.9 Auto Dim Display works for me.
    The repo is gone but the code still works ok.

    Interaction?

    Maybe AutoDim interacts with MusicInformation Screen?

    That combo works perfectly for me. (7.9 on QNAP and RasPi with Debian Jessie)

    Could someone send me the plugin or provide a link to download?

    Thanks!

    Can anyone tell me what the latest version of Auto Dim Display plugin is?

    I have 0.82 and running SMS 7.9. The plugin reports it is incompatible.

    Any way to resolve this?

    Thanks!
