Lock LibreELEC settings

  • When using multiple user-profiles and master lock is active I can choose which menu settings have to be locked by master lock.

    It would be very helpful if I could choose just for the menu-point "LibreELEC"-settings (which includes network settings, SMB-settings, etc.) whether it should be locked by master lock or not.


    Thank you in advance.

  • Kodi user profiles can be applied to core Kodi settings only, not the settings of an external add-on like LE settings. There is a plan to support a simple PIN code for access to the settings add-on in the LE 9.0 codebase to stop kids/wives etc. from fiddling with things, although nobody submitted code for it yet .. I need to nag someone.

  • Okay. Yes, that's exactly what I would need because my kids should not be able to activate Samba and edit sources.xml, where credentials for SMB-shares are saved.

    Thank you for the information.

  • As kids are growing very fast and I can't wait for this feature I'm asking again if there are any news on this.

    Can we expect it on LibrELEC 9.0?

  • I think your easiest solution is to try the latest 8.90.006 and see if it has been incorporated. I don't use profiles, so it's not something I normally look at.


    If it's still not incorporated, then come back and I'll try and get a better answer.

  • It has made it on the to-do list of the developer who's been poking at some settings addon refinements and changes. It has not (as of right-now) actually been implemented though, but "Rome wasn't built in a day" ;)
