It hangs on my system too... I'm on Useless 1.3 *internal*, on a 1.0s ("good" revision , the one with 2.0 screen where everything works)

EDIT: I tried it on all my three units, here goes:

1.0s useless 1.3 internal: hangs Commander
1.0 useless 1.2 internal: black screen
2.1 useless 1.2 internal: black screen

I should not rush things  :P

I had a gitignore set that prevents me from commiting binary python files. It also prevented me from adding python itself to the git repo ::) Half of python was missing, thats why it did't work anywhere. Please update to the latest git version and try again.

Would it be possible to incorporate an option in each menu (pymenu and gmenu) to go back to the other? So we can use both menus

Why not just go to apps and open the app? Or open in commander.

I now have this running on my 2.0, It looks awesome. Thank You...

I used the "External" Image file created by Jutley, applied 1.3 SP2. I then copied the latest version released on Github and over written the existing files when prompted. Works great :)

I have a small question about editing the menu... If I wanted to remove all the "Computers" C64, BBC Amstrad etc is there I file I can edit so they do not show in the menu ?

Thanks

The config file is locate in config/config.json

But you can edit it directly on the device: Got to options in the lower left of the main screen and set "Allow editing" to true. After that, got to the main menu item you want to remove and press select. You can add, remove and edit the entry there.
Same goes for the entries in "Ports" and "Applications"

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but still freezes at launch (run.sh) on commander.

I've downloaded: https://github.com/JackD83/PyMenu/archive/master.zip (is this correct?)

Copy it on apps folder as PyMenu.

I'm using RS97_Useless external firmware v1.3 sp2 on a old 2.1 console.

Any help?

Many thanks!!!

sp2 or 12? current service pack for firmware 1.3 is sp14. significant changes have been made in that time frame that may how this new menu runs. You might want to try updating to the latest service pack unless it was a typo then i have no idea.

I have the same on my 2.0... I got the old version working using the CFW Jutley created with it already done. Then I just updated the PyMenu folder to the latest version.

Some of the emulators wasn't displaying games and other emulators wouldn't boot... That said for the most part it was work great and the PyMenu look amazing. ;)

Its very hard to debug something like this remotely. I created a litte test script:

https://github.com/JackD83/PyMenu/blob/master/test.sh

Put it the PyMenu folder and run it using the dingux commander. It should produce a debug.txt and upload it here. I hope we can resolve the problem this way. I only have one of the first devices to test PyMenu on


There is still no configuration for the latest 1.5fw, a lot of entries are broken, but you can edit it yourself.

The problem is here:

Code: [Select]
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
ImportError: No module named site

This is normaly done using:
Code: [Select]
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$PWD/python/usr/lib
export PATH=$PATH:$PWD/python/usr/bin

But it seems it is not working on your device :'(

OK.

And is it related to the console version or maybe the firmware I'm using? (UselessRS97 V1.3 SP16 External)

Any code modification to solve the problem?

Thanks!!!

I was having the same issues, was on 1.5 fw and had the exact same freezing. Tried the master but no luck, then I did the dumb thing and tried doing an install of the master and it bricked it, I was forced to reflash 1.5 and this time ran the master from the start and it worked! I just want to say how amazing the interface is, I was not sure it I wanted to keep gmenux2 or switch but after using it I am hooked! Gmenux2 looks antiquated in comparison. Any way we can OC further than 624mhz? I had a stable OC at 642 using gxmenux2. Please keep up the amazing work with this, I love it.

Hi Folks,

I have made some progress with getting this running on an old 2.0 with 1.41 CFW by Gameblabla....

First I flashed 1.41
Then added PYMenu and run it once...
Next I then connected the RS-97 to my PC and selected USB Drive mode.
Then I copied my games and artwork.
Then added SP6

Picodrive will only see zip files until edit the settings, you do not have to add anything, just open and close the supported
file types section :)
