Kill XBMC.bin with Flirc on Lubuntu

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've searched to try and find a way of mapping a button so that when and if xbmc freezes I can push this button and it runs killall -9 xbmc.bin. However what I have found doesn't seem to work. I am running xbmc as a desktop so it boots straight into it. I created a script which is just the command mentioned above and made it executable. When I'm on the desktop and run it, it works. but when I reboot and go to xbmc it will not work. Can someone who has done this can give a quick tutorial on how to make this work it be much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Maybe you need to not have XBMC in focus before running your excitable.

e.g. on mac press apple-key + tab to scroll to the finder (so the OS is in focus) then try pressing the button to run your script.

 

It's my only suggestion... hopefully it's a good one.

That would work, but defeat the purpose of what I actually need. I have xbmc starting as the desktop so once it feezes it has to be killed in order for it to restart, which it does automatically once killed. I can make it work if I run xbmc on the actual lubuntu desktop, but not if I run xbmc as the desktop. Thanks for the suggetion though :)
