I am not too familiar with Linux, currently am running an Odroid N2 with Coreelec. When seeking to change things like
keyboard.xml would the best method (for a windows guy) be to plug in the emmc to my PC and make the changes from there?
I am uncertain if these files are writable from there. Thought I would ask before I went and broke something.
On Windows machine I do it the simple way; copy needed .xml file to an USB drive (via Kodi File Manager) connect that USB drive to the Windows and edit it with Notepad++. Then simply copy it back to proper place.
Usually I rename the original .xml to .xml.ori (again via Kodi File Manager) just in case something does not work as intended…
Wot I rote on the kodi forum:
The methods would be identical to those for libreelec or openelec.
Easiest way is to open an explorer window and type “\\CoreELEC” in the address bar. You’ll hopefully see a bunch of shares pop up, one of which is userdata.
Advancedsettings.xml is in there, you can open it in a text editor (Notepad++ is a good choice) and edit it from your pc.
You won’t see any of those files if you connect to a windows pc via usb, as they’re on an ext4 partition and windows can’t read that.
