Please help install a Front End
Okay, I am very new to this carputer business. I got into it after I stumbled into this forum while back and I have been trying to read as much as possible. There is a wealth of information in here. Thanks to all who are willing to share. Meanwhile, I have installed a carputer in my car. Here is my setup:
EPIA-V 1 GHz
XP Home SP2
512 Meg RAM
60 Gig 2.5 inch HD
60 Watt PS
7 inch TS Lilliput
2004 Routis GPS and receiver
4 port powered USB hub
Screen and hub power are directly taken from the 60W PS rails and it seems to be doing just fine.
Now to the issues I have:
I have unsuccessfully been trying to install one of the front ends that have so generously been made available on this site. I have downloaded and installed just about every single one but none is working properly for me and I am not sure what to do to fix the issues. I am not technical when it gets to software and am totally dependent on documentations so have no clue how to fix things when adjustments are needed.
For Example, I installed Frodo player, but it the screen goes to the bottom of the display and a major part of it gets missing. If I right click on the task bar and lock/or unlock it, the screen jumps up enough where the ďexitĒ button can be seen and I can navigate back, but then it moves down again.. I changed the skin to 800x600 but it does the same thing still. Donít know how to fix it.
I also installed media car and then tried to install remedia car on top of it. It just will not work for me. I am sure I am doing something wrong, or not doing something at all but donít know what it is! I am not even sure how to install remedia car properly. Readme text file does not say anything about where to place the files. So I have just unpacked them but I think I need to do more!
Tried Cetrafuse, media engine, Autotouch, etc. each with there own set of issues, or rather issues that are as the result of my lack of knowledge.
Is there documentation on any of the good front ends that someone with my very limited knowledge could use to install from start to end?
Any help would be much appreciated.
