multimedia buttons

#1

Hello all.

I’m running a raspberry pi 3+ with the official 10" touchscreen and a hifiberry dac+. I’ve got osmc up and running with all the hardware working correctly. the issue i have is when playing music … specifically the on screen controls for the player. either there are no buttons displayed or they are so tiny that you need a tooth pick to use them. Just to clarify when i say buttons i mean the standard play / pause - stop - skip forward and skip back buttons.

Osmc has been updated to the 05/22/2019 official image from osmc.

I hope someone can point me in a better direction than what my failed google fu has done.

Thanks for any and all help and have a good day.

Tried a different skin?

#3

yes i have. I’ve tried the Estouchy skin for touch screens and confluence over the stock skin and neither seem to have what I am looking for.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Are their media transport buttons just as small? Or is it just that those skins aren’t appealing to you?

#5

there either extremely small or not there. if there is an option to resize them or a skin that has them at a reasonable size.

To put this in better context i’m trying to set this up to be a music player in my car (2010 honda accord lx). I have an aux in for my car stereo and it’s just a basic head unit and to replace the head unit is a pita as half the dash has to be removed and it’s not a standard din or double din setup. Figured the raspberry pi with osmc would be the easy solution.

Use of a touchscreen with a media player software that was designed for a 10ft screen is a bit of a niche use case. In my own research, I have noted that there are users who have created their own skins for the very purpose you fall into here though. I would start here to find out where to acquire his skin?

It’s a 10 inch screen and i figured it would be fairly easy / straight forward to get something up and running since it’s not a new thing or idea.

Thanks for the help and the link to the car pc thread. I have some homework to do.
