I have been trying to get a button on the remote control to start kodi. I created a bash script called StartKodi.sh which simply contains "bash /usr/LH/bin/kodi.sh". The script works fine from the command line although I do get a number of messages. I then modified my ~/remotes/harmony700/lircrc.txt-harmony file to include the following
Code:
begin
  #Red button for restart X
  prog = irexec
  button = red
  config = /home/mythtv/RestartX.sh
end

begin
  #Yellow button to start Kodi
  prog = irexec
  button = yellow
#  config = /usr/LH/bin/kodi.sh
#  config = "bash /home/mythtv/StartKodi.sh"
  config = /home/mythtv/StartKodi.sh
end
As you see I also use the red button to restart X with the help of a bash script which works fine but I cannot get the kodi script to work. As you can also see I have tried different combinations to no avail.

When I run the script from the command line I do get a number of messages/warnings which I don't know is affecting things. I am not running a screensaver.
Code:
[mythtv@vm-r84 ~]$ bash StartKodi.sh
/usr/LH/bin/stop xss.sh: line 8: xscreensaver-command: command not found
sh: lsb release: command not found
/usr/lib/kodi-xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile
/usr/lib/kodi-xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
/usr/LH/bin/kodi.sh: line 7: 25010 Terminated         stop xss.sh
[mythtv@vm-r84 ~]$

Am I missing something?

If your using LinHES it;s done for you if you installed it using pacman

Media Library /( scroll to) Launch Kodi press OK

I have no problem starting Kodi from the menu. As I said I can even start it from the command line. What I am trying to do is assign a button on the remote to do it.

I did a quick search on my 8.4 install and it seems like all of the remote template files are located under /usr/MythVantage/templates/remotes/ I don't have a directory for ~/remotes/ . Is this a special file you have somehow assigned outside of the LinHES settings GUI?

mattbatt the ~/remotes directory is if you create a custom remote template: http://linhes.org/projects/linhes/wiki/ ... -Templates

nicom, the screensaver cmd is coming from the /usr/LH/bin/kodi.sh script and those messages can be ignored. There shouldn't be any need to use the StartKodi.sh unless there is some other command than /usr/LH/bin/kodi.sh. Try changing your config line to:
Code:
/usr/LH/bin/kodi.sh &
The "&" will background the task which I have found with irexec is sometimes needed.

Thanks for the suggestion brfransen. Unfortunately it does not work. I will try some other variations.
