User Interface

The LinuxMCE on-screen Orbiter User Interface (UI) was designed to be viewed on a basic television from 10' away. There are currently three versions of the UI, and selection depends on the type of video card you have. UI1 is the most basic, and runs on all video cards. UI2 with masking will run on a majority of graphics card (with OpenGL and XDamage support), but UI2 alpha-blended is confirmed to work only with certain nVidia graphics cards. See Selecting the Right UI.

UI1 takes over the screen whenever you bring up the menu; any video that is playing is reduced to a window. In UI2 your media is always full-screen and is never reduced. (When you're not watching your own video or photos, LinuxMCE displays gallery art from Flickr or a selection of your own photos).


Main menu

The main menu lists the top level options for the room in several categories: Lighting, Media, Climate, Media, Telecom, and Security. In UI1, the first (blank) button in the Media Category is the "Now Playing" button, which brings up the menus for your active media. In UI2, the "Now Playing" button is in the lower left of the screen. Options for your current media (like Audio Tracks, Subtitles, etc.) appear as pop-up sub-menus. All options can be accessed in UI2 from a single screen. UI2 allows you to use your remote control, your keyboard arrows, or your mouse to select the pop-up menu and sub-menus.
