Here’s a dumb question (but I really can’t find the answer in the wiki): How do you run an application? I’ve got a sample downloaded to the BUG (I can see it on My BUG in Eclipse) but what next?

The answer depends on the application. Generally the apps I have written start up once you plug the modules you need to run the program into the BUG base. For example, the Basic Calculator (http://www.buglabs.net/applications/kschultz/Ba… opens once you plug in the LCD module.

The advantage to this system is that the apps pop up immediately without having to navigate through the menu. The disadvantage is that it doesn’t scale past an application or two, if you have 10 apps that turn on as soon as the LCD gets plugged in, you have a problem. Generally the apps in the future will be accessible from the menu (navigated with the 4 buttons to the right of the status screen).

Which application were you using?

Aldaron,

When you say that nothing happens, does that mean that the BUGview icon on the base display does not appear? Which slot do you have the LCD module in? Do you see xeyes displaying on the LCD screen?

Please see these posts about the LCD module:

BUGview Slot Restrictions

Normal Boot Sequence (about what to look for when the LCD module is attached)

And for information about how to launch an application:
