Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

It's a bit odd the setting doesn't 'stick'… changing the defaults.list might help?

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

Hi jsmeigs - this should just be a case of directing the os to use the startkodi script for all video files… have you looked for 'default applications' settings? Can't be much more help than that as I don't have my pi any more, but you can avoid the need to reboot by doing ctrl+alt+f1 then ctrl+alt+...

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

Brilliant - thanks Kratos! :P

Fwiw, I've split the difference on gpu_mem at 160, which seems ok (but I don't know if you have to step up in powers of 2 for it to take the value as specified though...)

edit: htop tells me I've 830MB of RAM available, which suggests 194MB has been reserved for GPU?

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

I contacted support over at Kodi. I shall see what they say Yeah, I thought I saw a post on the forum over there that looked like it might be yours..! I don't think you have to include the source itself... But I'm not sure, cos that Trademark Policy page is a beast to get clear in your head, isn't ...

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

I've been off having a read, and I'm inclined to agree that a purist interpretation of the Kodi trademark policy does preclude anything other than a build using the sanctioned options spelled out in the README. But I'm also inclined to think that a .deb built from unaltered source (perhaps even with...

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

You need to learn about opensource. It's legal to redistribute as source code, but not a full blown compiled package without the coder's permission. It's immoral, wrong, and even illegal in some cases. f'n cs. Genuine question, cos I'm interested (not being facetious), but can you reference where t...

Blimey - there's probably a list knocking about somewhere(?) detailing the difference in repositories between the armhf version for pi and the x86, but I don't know where... there's definately a fair few differences. Depends how hardcore you want to be about building stuff from source; biggest issue...

Re: How does Ubuntu mate on a Pi 3 perform?

I like it very much... haven't tried Raspbian (or any other distros on the pi3, to be fair), but I've been happily web-browsing, LibreOffice writing and Kodi-ing for a good few days now on 16.04, and it's spot on for that stuff (that some folk will spend ten times the cash for down at PC World (*cou...

Re: Kodi on Ubuntu MATE 15.10

Kratos, this afternoon's build of 17 is absolutely spot on... no issues to report so far, except it's still a little touch-and-go exiting back to the desktop. (Meh, I can totally live with that!)

Thanks so much for your work on this, you've done loads!

Still messing about with it at the moment; had a few random crashes, which i didn't seem to be getting on the previous version, though... I've turned off all the eye-candy and it seems more stable.
