My OSMC running on a Raspberry Pi 2 has ceased to work properly. It starts but fails to load its skin completely. Recently added moives, skin short cuts, those sort of things just doesn’t show.
I removed guisetting.xml to change skin from Unity to the default, but the problem persists.
My TV remote can no longer control Kodi. I can however access it via other means. SSH, FTP and the web interface all work. So does Yatze, my Android Kodi remote of choice.
I can start media via Yatzes interface (not navigating Kodi). It plays.
But when I try to use Yatze as a remote, the first press of a direction shuts down the GUI and I get the OSMC sad-face-something-went-wrong screen. Then I’m returned to the start menu, again not showing properly.
I have noticed something which might help explain what happend, but I need help understanding it. During the last few days, I was getting »Skin short-cut error« or something every time I returned to the home menu. There was nothing wrong with any of my shortcuts, so I put the issue of my mental list of things to investigate later. The error message said something about looking at an error log for details.
Today I tried to start first one then another streaming app. Both failed, and gave an error message doing so (I think it was just [app name] failed to start).
That’s when I restarted OSMC for the first time in 3 days (checked System Info before hand)). And it made everything worse …
I checked /temp/kodi.log for some clue as to what’s happening, but cant really find anything obvious.
