Beast October with black backgrouds

22 posts in this topic

Hi, sorry if this is a known issue but I couldn't find any reference to it.

Fresh start and all is working except I have no background images. Its just a black screen. All menu's are there and working. All add-ons there and working too.

I do have background images in the system menu but not on the home screen.

I'm running on LibreElEC 8.2.

Hey CJ...

I had this same issue happen to me on the last update installation. I figured it had to do with Aeon Nox app. In my case... I just updated the Beast again and all was back to normal.

I'll tag @Mixdoctor , @KleptoKodi , and @Sarah Barker so they can chime in on an easier fix for ya.

Hey Sarah and BlueDragon. I tried re-installing and fresh start but no background images yet. I could do a total wipe of the system but not sure that would achieve much

@CodeJACK¬†& @Brandoid757¬†from blue kodi screen (with beast installed) go to settings gear symbol, interface settings, change skin from estuary to Aeon¬†Knox, save changes. It should be converted then. Lmk ūüėÄSorry I didn't clarify instructions before.¬†

Thanks Sarah for trying but swapping the skin is not the issue. Aeon Know is selected but the background images for each of the home screens (Movies, TV Shows, Beast Sports, etc etc etc) are all black.

I tried going through all the setting in the skin but I can see where the images are coming from to check is the directory is even there. Maybe you could tell me where the images should be and ill check the local file system?

This might be an issue with LibreELEC only ????

You can see the path for the backgrounds in the skin settings.  It may differ depending on the skin, but it'll be something like the following:

System -> Interface -> Skin -> Configure Skin -> Set up Aeon Nox main menu.  Then for each menu, look for a background path and let us know what you find.

On mine it shows nothing on any of the background paths. I tried selecting a random fan art for tv and movie, but after reloading the skin. Still black background screen

Yes I think it is¬†a libreElec issue, possibly an extra step needed.¬†let me look into it a little further & get back to you both soon. ‚ėļÔłŹ

Thanks Sarah. All of the skin settings for background location and set to "none" for me. I can get something to appear by choosing the random options so I'm happy to settle for one of them. I do miss the look of the beast themed images though :-)

Actually, its not the random option but the live background that shows something. The content in the live background does not populate.

Ok everyone I think I found it compliments of a great friend of the Beast @Soulless_Builds (twitter handle) 

add special://home to the source section in file manager (it said none above for you all) Then go to the skin settings and for each section select backgrounds. You will have to select the source I just said and look through all the home folders for the background folder and set the backgrounds.

in the meantime I will get with Chris & get this fixed for next time ūüėĀ lmk your outcomes.¬†

 

Thanks Sarah

Excellent Sarah... It works. You are a star. The background of the Beast is located under userdata. :^)
