Hi all. I am relatively new to Linux and am currently trying to set up anyremote as a controller for a htpc. I am using ubuntu hardy 8.05.
I have been trying to configure anyremote correctly for 2 days now (literately, I didnt get to sleep till 4am last night and I started back on it as soon as I got up).
First problem was installing. The .deb only seems to install the front end. This is very confusing for someone not used to linux.
Then installing anyremote turned into a living hell. I continually got a can not find bluetooth.h error. I then installed the bluez dev package. This didnt fix it. Then found something that I dont even remember which did help me get past that error. Now came a new error, cant find xtest! Arrrgh!!!!! So I installed with out x11. Dont know what that means but it installed this time.
Now getting the java program on my phone was another headache, but I do now have it. Althuogh right now I have the options of tiny buttons you cant see or huge ones that dont fit on the screen. However I relize i only need to find the correct ones for my phone.
Ok so the stage now is that I can start the gui, pic a config (xbmc) press start and BAM! nothing. disconnected from phone. the phone says its connected but I am sure its lying to me.
Please help. I would be tearing my hair out if I had any.
Let me know what details you need and how to find them before both phone and htpc are smashed to smithereens.
Firstly, are there any chance to migrate to latest Ubuntu version ? IMHO deb's for hardy are very old.
Which phone do You have ?
Does search from java client was successful ?
Please run anyremote from console with additional -log parameter and then send $HOME/.anyRemote/anyremote.log to
anyremote (at) mail.ru
