ctuller,

The BUG uses an OSGi runtime to handle various applications. BUG Applications should launch once the required modules are inserted. Which applications have you sent to your BUG? For example, kschultz's BasicCalculator app requires only the BUGview module. If the LCD module is inserted when the application is sent to the BUG, it will show up immediately. Otherwise, it will not begin running until the BUGview module is inserted, upon module recognition.

I’ve tried SimpleGUI, SnapandShakeSlideshow, and simplecamera.
I have the right modules installed.

When you plug the BUGview module into slot 1 or 3 (the two slots above or below the joystick), do you see xserver running, and xeyes? something likes this:

Blank as in static, or blank as in white? When you power the BUGbase on, do you see the animation on the base LCD, and then the clock? How have you been sending the applications to the BUG? Via the SDK?

When I power on, the bugbase lcd play the animation then shows clock and an icon for each module attached.
The attached lcd module shows nothing. It appears black as if it has no power.

I used Eclipse/sdk to send the apps to the bugbase via usb.

Just to be clear, there is an icon on the BUGbase display for the BUGview module? This would indicate that the module is receiving power and is recognized by hotplug, the driver, and all the way up through the Application/OSGi layer. Yet, it isn't displaying.

Is this true for each of the four slots? If so, please describe any BUGview activity you may see by gently pressing the LCD module onto the BUGbase.

ctuller, if it is more convenient for you, I can address this in real-time on our IRC channel. irc.freenode.net, #buglabs. You can also call us toll-free at 1-866-9BUGLAB.

I get the same results for all four slots.
The BUGbase lcd shows an icon for the bugview module.
There is no activity on the bugview modual screen.

Let's try sending an application to the BUG that does not require the LCD module. From within the SDK, select the Search button in the BUGNet view. Search for NightRider and download it to the SDK. Send the application to your BUG. Do LEDs on the face of the BUGBase light up in a back-and-forth pattern?

Try sshing into your BUG and cat /var/log/messages or dmesg. If you could pastbin the messages, it would be more helpful... especially after various insertions/removals.
