Finally, writing run > nil list dbox: on startup (in order to mount/display dbox directly on Ambient's screen - if possible), made Ambient not workable after reboot (had to boot without startup and delete the line) since no devices were mounted at all (only cli and screen bar worked).
You're missing ":" after "nil". It should be "nil:" because nil: is a device and you want to redirect the output there, not into a file called nil.
But that whole list thing isn't needed, you can edit the DEVS:Cloud/cloud.mountlist file and change the "Activate = 0" lines to "Activate = 1".
That makes the mounts active directly when you mount them and not only after you have accessed them. I'm not sure if it helps with displaying it on the Ambient screen (probably not), but then you don't need to use that "list dbox:" to make it active.
You probably should move the mounting somewhere else than user-startup then too. user-network-startup would be a better place, or mount it manually when needed and not put them in any startup script (I do it like that).[ Edited by jPV 22.04.2016 - 17:00 ]
