11== Getting Started ==
12
13To use this copy the config template related to your OS to tilesAtHome.conf,
14then edit to set you username and password for tiles upload
15
16
17== Running the client ==
18
19To start generating tiles from the server queue, run "tilesGen.pl loop".
20CAUTION: if your country uses a comma for decimal separator (like Germany)
21you need to set your decimal separator to "." instead.
22If you don't do this inkscape will complain and generate empty tiles.
23On linux and other unix-like systems this can be accomplished by setting
24i18n=1 in your tilesathome.conf .
25
26If you want to render a specific tile run tilesGen.pl with the xy option
27for example if you want to render the tile number x=2148 y=1332
28(zoom 12 is always the default and cannot be changed) you would run
29./tilesGen.pl xy 2148 1332
30
31To upload tiles use "tilesGen.pl upload" (this is called automatically
32in loop mode).
33
34
35== Stopping the client ==
36
37The client will stop automatically after completing its job, unless in "loop"
38mode. Loop mode can be exited cleanly simply by creating a file called
39"stopfile.txt" in the tilesAtHome directory. Upon encountering this file the
40client will exit after it completes it's current job.

43== Troubleshooting ==
