    well, I've got a strange issue. When I paste the command into the alt+f2 box, it says file not found. Yet if I paste the exact same line into a terminal window it works. Does this mean I'm going to have to keep a terminal window open just to use this?

    try putting it inside quotes, i know when copying files from the command-line it doesn't like spaces, maybe thats the issue here.

    there also might be a typo, a net little trick i figured out (but i'm sure is well known and acting like it's neat will get me branded a n00b) is that if you copy the file in nautilus (right-click, copy) and you paste into a text box, it will pastes the complete path in plain text. i do this to eliminate any typos when i'm making a startup program or launcher.

    for example, i just right-clicked and copied a song from my music collection, if i paste into another folder, a duplicate file will be created there, but if i just ctrl+v here i get: /home/ryan/Music/Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution/02 - Here's To Life.mp3

    unfortunately, i also pasted the above bolded path directly into the Alt+F2 box, and it accepted the spaces without complaint.

    how about you copy the directory address for us?

    Oddly enough, changing ~/.x360MediaServe/x360MediaServe.sh to .x360MediaServe/x360MediaServe.sh fixed it. I'm not near my linux box right now to give you the exact error, (and my wife is probably using mythtv if I know her, so I couldn't use it anyway) but essentially it was trying to run it in home/nephus/home/nephus/.x360MediaServ. Not sure what that's all about, but it appears that alt+f2 is automatically running everything from my home dir and specifying it caused a bit of a problem. *shrug* Is that something to do with Hardy or do I have something configured wrong?

    were you trying to run it with
    Code:
    home/nephus/home/nephus/.x360MediaServ
    or

    Code:
    /home/nephus/home/nephus/.x360MediaServ
    it is very important to have that first slash, otherwise you're specifying a folder that isn't in the root filesystem

    Nope just ~/.x360MediaServe/x360MediaServe.sh

    here's the error: Could not open location file:///home/nephus/~/.x360MediaServe/x360MediaServe.sh

    hmm, the tilde means the home folder for the user you are logged in as, so the complete path you tried to open is:
    Code:
    /home/nephus/home/nephus/.x360MediaServe/x360MediaServe.sh
    that looks like a bug or at least a quirk, though i don't know if it's a quirk of hardy (which there have been enough damn quirks and bugs), a quirk of GNOME, a quirk in the run dialog, or a quirk in something else.

    at least you got it working

    Re: HOWTO: Stream music to your Xbox 360

    I think this howto needs to be reconsidered. What is needed for xbox360 and ps3 serving from linux is a upnp server. The one used in this howto is in alpha, and really isnt robust or feature complete.

    IMHO the ideal server is fruppes. It allows for transcoding as well. Anyway I have been trying to get it to work from an SVN build because the last official build has since had bugs corrected. Here is my notes:

    FUPPES - FUPPES is a free, multiplatform UPnP A/V Media Server

    http://fuppes.ulrich-voelkel.de/

    sudo apt-get install subversion autoconf automake1.9

    svn co https://fuppes.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/fuppes/trunk fuppes

    cd fuppes/

    autoreconf -vfi

    m4_pattern_allow([^AC_DISABLE_STATIC$])
    m4_pattern_allow([^AC_PROG_LIBTOOL$])
    m4_pattern_allow([^AM_ICONV$])

    Its here that I ran into further problems. As you can see the auto conf didnt goto too well and I tried to manually deal with the m4s allowed but then I had further problems.

    If someone can figure it out, I think this would be the ultimate solution. We could even look at getting a package into multiverse or something to make it easy???
