I wll check out that Link, I did try to create my own emulationstation.py... same results, blank screen for a moment. and kodi reloads...
I'm not too concerned, i don't believe my PC can emulate PS3 anyways.. so, if you'd be so kind could you tell me what was the last .TAR file before you made the changes to the command? i believe i have all the update TAR's.
Also.. one other thing... since the last 2 update TAR,s i notices i have a "SED Write Error" at boot.. Not that it concerns me because i will be rolling back,, just thought you might like to know.
my PC is an much older Intel i7 -2700 with Nvidia 740 4gig.
PS thanks again for your help.. and your fantastic builds.
Well reboot your system and try to run ES or else & then grab the complete logiles.zip stored in the logiles smb share. The newest file should be suitable because it contains all information... Kodi logs, dmesg, journal etc.
I made a clean install on a 64GB usb pen drive and I don't have any "SED Write Error" messages or else. I've installed the skin Transparency! | Kodi | Open Source Home Theater Software for some tests so how did you add the custom launch command? The only problem I have found is that the python scripts lack the executable bit which prevents directly running them. So I'll add this and can reupload an image, maybe your skin choked on that? You can however run python python-script.py and so I guess Kodi had no problems with the missing bit.
What I also had in mind... have you considered a somewhat screwed/faulty filesystem or hdd, ssd, usb-drive?
I made the changes here emulationstation: added systemd service config · 5schatten/[email protected] · GitHub so everything older than 19 days should be fine if it's related to that.
can you try to run the pegasus-frontend.py? If that one works with your changes then it's probably the exec bit... all scripts exept ES & RA had them.
