what's wrong with my Autoexec.py script?

  • I have created my autoexec.py file and placed it in /storage/.kodi/userdata/


    I'm trying to just start a recurring slideshow using the contents of my picture folder in the default location...

    Code
    xbmc.executebuiltin('RecursiveSlideShow(/storage/.kodi/pictures/)')

    I'm assuming I have my pathing wrong, but can't work it out. On restart Kodi does nothing

  • I also tried this, but still no bananas...

  • Do you have pictures in folder /storage/.kodi/Pictures/ ? I bet no.

    I have .jpgs and some video files (with show videos in list checked in the options). I can run the slideshow successfully manually from within Kodi, but I just need it to auto start on boot.

  • I tried file from your first and works here. Enable kodi debug logging and look inside log for errors.

    Gone...

    well, some kind of pathing issue, but not much to go off...
