MANY THANKS for your great image of the Raspberry pi with official display… Works reall great no problems, I have Flirc working as well, and a Plaindac+ sounding great!. Pi display blanks after a period of time with no touches and wakes up with either a touch or the FLIRC remote.
Please can you tell me how to add colour backgrounds to jivelite as shown in this post:-
It looka a lot morecheerful than the normal black background.

Thank you for reply…
I do know how to set background from Jivelite settings, my problem is that there are no other backgrounds than black!
What I need to know is, HOW to update jivelite, with either a suitable png for the background and where to install it
or How to update Jivelite to a version that includes colour backgrounds.
Another question…… I have seen pictures of Jivelite running displaying a tiled GUI. I would like to try it. How do I find and install that GUI?
many thanks again

Updating Jivelite doesn’t work! It has never worked for me.
There is something wrong with the network settings / host name for M2P Version v2.4 and also the latest beta.
I have complained about this some weeks ago and it has been ignored… I cannot find my post now.
My problem is that I do NOT use wifi I use wired. My router base address is 192.168.2.1.
I get an error message when I set sudo on a ssh connection ” cannot resolve Max2play.
When I try to update jivelite, the yellow box appears and the first message update xxxx appears and stays there for ever (HOURS), another user also complained about this issue.
After altering hosts file (chaning 127.0.0.1 to max2play.
This time Jivelite starts to update then fails, cannot find any of the Max2play servers, there seems to be a dns problem I use 18.104.22.168, also complains of time in the future, when I check DATE, on raspberry it is 1970, ntp is not running. (prob same DNS issue)
The whole thing is a mess. This is not D/L image corruption issue or a power issue or an SD card issue, I have Dl/d many copies and used multiple cards and have a good 5v 3A supply! Always fails on Jivelite update!
iT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF THIS COULD BE FIXED SOMETIME.

Maybe a problem with ifplugd…
On my PI2 the ifplugd always wanted to connect via wlan although there is no wlan stick but a LAN cable. I got no connection to my PI. I removed ifplugd from m2p an set up an LAN connection via /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf23. November 2015 at 21:00 #17001
SOLVED SOLVED SOLVED
Well after a lot of poking about in the M2P Raspberry pi images, every one has the same omission and an error.
Putting the actual host name in /etc/hosts file as well as local host ie.
127.0.0.1 localhost changed to 127.0.0.1 localhost max2play
This stopped the sudo error “max2play not found”
also I changed the netmask entry in /etc/network/interfaces eth0 config from 255.255.0.0 to 255.255.255.0
I then was able to install the “NEW” bin version of JIVELITE successfully and now I can choose from a number of colourful background in the settings part of Jivelite.
