Just performed a clean install of OSMC on Vero 4K+. Mounted my fileshare via /etc/fstab (same as before clean install).
Pointed OSMC at my media, and all is looking great. However, if I go into menu customisation and widgets I’m stuck on “random movie”.
If I click on Add, new item appears. If I click on Widget the new window opens but I can’t do anything on the new screen.
I’m sure you would be able to browse other widgets, creating a smart playlist etc… but its just seemingly stuck
Want the widget to show recently added, unwatched movies .
If I can assume your running the OSMC skin then have you read through this…
As explained in the
OSMC Skin wiki article, the main menu of the OSMC Skin can be customized entirely.
The customization process via the main menu customization dialog might take some getting used to as it offers a lot of ways to tweak nearly every aspect of the main menu. With this how-to we’d like to acquaint you with the customization dialog and the different ways it allows you to adjust the OSMC Skin main menu to your taste and needs.

My issue isn’t “I don’t understand the process”, my issue is “the navigation is broken”. I can get so far into the menu system to “Add a new widget”, but then the menu system is completely frozen. I can’t physically make a change once into the edit.
sudo systemctl stop mediacenter
sudo apt-get install --reinstall mediacenter-skin-osmc
sudo systemctl start mediacenter
This seems to have fixed it, I can now browse the menus - will see how it fairs. Strange for a brand new install from disk image (image was verified).
Menus briefly worked, now broken again.
Using the default Kodi skin. All seems good so far - feels like somethings broken in the default osmc skin.
Might be one for
@chillbo to advise.
This should be fixed in our staging repo - it’s a bug I unfortunately overlooked for our last update. If you’d like to test:
