Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

Again, if you read my previous posts, setting up Kodi with an experimental feature of VNC is exactly what I was doing. I then tried to install a newer version of Kodi and things went south. I'm merely trying to recover to where I was.

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

I would like help getting the base Kodi (without any addons) back to the state that I had it before - where I could do some setup over VNC. If you think the Kodi forums would be more appropriate for that discussion, then just say so.

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

You're being quite dismissive. If you read my previous posts, I was able to get Kodi working fine over VNC (which in my understanding is not X11). Kodi may not be made for streaming out-of-the-box, but it certainly can be used for that (c.f. http://www.wirelesshack.org/a-guide-to-kodi-and-watching-f...

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

Kodi on Raspberry Pi doesn't support X11 (it uses OpenGLES nad there is no standard for that), at least if you want hardware acceleration. And VNC isn't a streaming protocol even using dispmanx. I don't understand. I'm not using X11 (as far as I'm aware), and I'm not trying to stream through VNC. I...

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

Well, now I've hit another snag. I noticed that Kodi 16.1 is out, but isn't yet in the Raspbian repositories. I found a guide to install the newer version at https://mtantawy.com/quick-tip-how-to-update-to-latest-kodi-16-jarvis-on-raspberry-pi/, which I followed. I ended up getting a segmentation fa...

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

That did the trick, thank you! I skimmed through those settings, but must have missed the RelativePtr one (and I didn't know about the f8 menu). Now it's time to configure...

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

Any ideas? This is pretty much a showstopper.

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

I've tried starting Kodi both from the lightdm menu and through the terminal (over VNC).

I did just discover that I do have a cursor, it's just stuck to the left side of the screen and has very amplified movement. What might cause that?

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

Well, I spoke too soon. Kodi starts up, but it doesn't respond to anything. When I kill the process, the desktop doesn't show up again, and I have to restart the Pi to get it back. What's going on now?

If this would be better for the Kodi forums, let me know.

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

Ok, thanks for the info. Wasn't planning on watching video over VNC, just getting it set up so I can stream elsewhere. Toggling that setting worked, thank you! Of course, it made VNC a lot slower, but that's tolerable for just getting Kodi set up.

Re: HOWTO: Install Kodi on Raspbian

I installed kodi using apt-get, but when I ran kodi (either through the Raspbian menu or at the command line), nothing seemed to happen. I could use top to see that kodi.bin was running, but I saw no evidence of such. I found this thread and followed the instructions, but I see the same results. I'v...
