Log file/File manager access
|Troubleshooting||HOW-TO:Submit a bug report||Log file||File manager access|
This page describes how to use the Kodi internal File manager for locating and copying your log file. This is handy for situations like if the debug uploader add-on doesn't work, or if you need to manually access the logs but are using a non-desktop OS that doesn't have easy access to those files.
Step 1: In Kodi's home screen, go to the File manager submenu of the Settings menu.
Step 2: This is the file manager. You can add sources just like any other media source. This is a remote control friendly interface that uses an A-B panel system. Files selected from Panel A can be copied into Panel B, for example.
Step 6: Now we want to add a location to save the log file to. Another media source, such as a network file share, can be added here, or we can even just plug in a USB drive, which should automatically show up in the File manager. ADATAPRO in the screenshot is a USB flash drive for this example.
Step 7: On Panel A: Open the logpath source. On Panel B: Open the source you added, either USB drive or other media source location. You can further navigate in Panel B to the exact folder you wish to copy the log file to.
