How to: Install TOFU Blur skin from the TOFULinux Addon Repo

Postby aasoror » March 24th, 2016, 5:02 pm

Open "System/Settings"

Image

Select "Appearance"

Image

Select the "Skin" entry

Image

Select "Get more"

Image

Browse the available skins and select "TOFU Blur"

Image

Let the skin download (speed depends on your connection but the skin is about 40 MBs).

Image

Allow it to install (takes about 6 minutes on the XS and, expectedly, twice as much on the DS)

Image

Select "Yes"

Image

Enjoy

I had that problem as well - the skin was marked as incompatible. I found this by unchecking the hide-incompatible add-ons on the 'settings menu to the left of the add-on screen'.

I would be really interest to find out if you are having the same problem as I could not track this one down ...

Yeah dc1 has been having the same issue, logs didn't show much though.
It would be great if you can capture logs, there should be an entry saying why the addon is not compatible.

Having this same problem, but my hide incompatible option is greyed out, cannot change it.

Any new word on it? I haven't troubleshot this box in awhile, so not sure exactly which log, but point me at it and i'll contribute a datapoint.

Edit: figured it out - http://xbmclogs.com/pc8ax3um2 I see nothing useful at all in there?

That's downloading kodi upload, enabling debugging, rebooting, navigating to system, appearance, skin, get more. (repeating a couple times).

escaping, programs, kodi uploader.

Edit2: - instead of going via system/appearance, I went through addons, install from repo, tofulinux comp, lookandfeel/skin and now I was able to disable the "hide incompatible".

I see TOFU Blur in the list, but it is indeed marked incompatible.

Addon Information says "Add-on is incompatible or has been marked broken in repository. Dependencies not met. Please contact add-on author."

Edit3: - this is on newly flashed tofulinux 031116, and had debug logging on while doing the edit2 actions, nothing useful in there either.

Thanks for "Edit2:" I forgot to mention that I had to go through the addons/look and feel to disable the "hide incompatible" setting.

The log looks very familiar too .. no real breadcrumbs to follow.

OK, I could finally replicate this on a "factory-reset"ed XS, I can confirm side loading worked just fine for blur, so it seems there is an issue with the repo on the CDN.

Looking into it.

Tried but failed -- gets to 57/58% and then resets to 0% with a quick 1-100% display (as it cleans up) which is the same behaviour that I saw before.

Thanks for the feedback dc1.
mmm ... once download kicks off then its no longer a repo issue must be something else (IIRC your issue also persisted when sideloading the skin) !! the issue tackled here was the "uninstallable/hidden because of incompatibility" and I think this is now sorted out.
@vengent and @Tank_Killer can you confirm ?
