  1. When using the OSMC config app, selecting the option for “Pi config” does nothing.

Can you provide a full config.txt file not a partial one ?

The crash is being caused by the gpu_mem_1024 setting not being parsed properly but you don’t show a gpu_mem_1024 line in your config.txt…

Also your debug log link seems to be invalid - can you try again with your link please.

The config thing is a bug, will be fixed in the next version.

Check back in a few hours and I will have a fix that will get it working straight away for you.

That is the full config.txt file. It has 7 lines in it.

Same debug log: http://paste.osmc.io/xepokasivo.vhdl

New debug log: http://paste.osmc.io/icitoratew.vhdl

OK, the file has been fixed in github, and you can bring it onto your device by going to MyOSMC - Updates - Manual Controls - Apply HotFix and entering the code: [deprecated]

You will be given a URL when it completes and post that here to confirm the fix worked.

Sorry it’s taken so long. I was actually mid-packing when I did the update and have moved to another state. I should have internet connected on Sunday and will try the hot fix ASAP.

Hot fix applied. The rpi config option now works. Keyboard issue still stands.

Just to point out - the setting is called enable mouse and touchscreen support not enable mouse and keyboard support:


(You seem confused in your original post)

You cannot disable keyboard support in Kodi using a GUI preferences setting to my knowledge.

Apologies. I knew that, but wasn’t sitting at the TV when I responded. My keyboard has built in mouse support via motion control. If I uncheck the mouse and touchscreen support, the mouse no longer selects menu items as it passes them, but it still appears.
