Installing XBM on Ubuntu

Installing XBMC (soon to be Kodi) media center software on an Ubuntu based system (Ubuntu, Mint etc. ):

  • sudo apt-get install python-software-properties pkg-config
  • sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install xbmc

Upgrading it some time later:

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install xbmc

Removing it eventually, if the need will be:

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get remove xbmc*
  • sudo apt-get purge xbmc*
