Customise Interface

The EMC –R comes with 6 predefined desktops to use. To change the desktop use PuTTY to get root acces. To make things easier later on we first copy the full contents off the “/usr/local/bin/Resource/” directory to the accessible FAT32 partition.

mkdir /usr/local/etc/hdd/volumes/HDD1/sys
cp /usr/local/bin/Resource/* /usr/local/etc/hdd/volumes/HDD1/sys

When you open the fat32 partition using USB2 or the network you can now see all the copied files in the newly created directory “sys”. Search for the file “swconfig.ini”. Open it in notepad. Now look for “sustom_id = 1” below are the descriptions of the selectable desktops. My personal favourite is option 4 (icons move in a circle).Now go back to PuTTY and change the “swconfig.ini” file using these commands:

vi /usr/local/bin/Resource/swconfig.ini

Move the cursor to the line “sustom_id = 1”
move to the “1”

  • press “A”
  • press “4” for example (choice from 0 to 5)
  • Press “esc”
  • press “:”
  • type in “wq”
  • “Enter”

Please be carefull with calling an id, they are numbered from 0 to 5. In firmware version 2.0.9UP there is an extra desktop included, desktop 6, a peekbox theme
