CoreELEC settings won't open


#1

Hi,

I just don’t know what I did, but after running CoreELEC 8.95.6 for a while I’m unable to open the CoreELEC settings in the settings menu anymore: Clicking on the menu item simply does nothing!

Please advice …

Thanks!

Please turn on debug logging, try and enter it again and then provide your kodi.log.

Sorry for taking so long, just was too busy to get around it.

That’s all I have with advancedsettings.xml logging set to “4” with regards to the CoreELEC settings:

19:20:13.087 T:3550561136 DEBUG: CPythonInvoker(10, /usr/share/kodi/addons/service.coreelec.settings/default.py): start processing

Anything else I should watch out for? Do I need to activate something else debugging-wise to make progress? The rest of the box / installation works perfect, just the CoreELEC settings menu won’t open.

Thanks!

I’m experienced with Linux / command line stuff, so is there any way to start / debug the settings addon from my box’ shell directly?


#6

Any further advise here? Still having that issue unfortunately …


#7

I don’t know what your issue is, I have tried with a fresh install and there is no issue, you could try remove the folder inside /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data, reboot and then try again.

Hi guys,

I ran into this issue before and the solution (after some searching) was very simple: i deleted the coreelec file where settings are stored.
After that i was able to open the settings section again (and had to reset all configs).

I guess the settings file can get corrupted.

Hope it helps
