Kodi on Ubuntu Core

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

I've downloaded and installed Ubuntu Core image (2018-06-30 release) and am trying to get Kodi to work. These are my steps...

sudo adduser --disabled-password --disabled-login --gecos "" kodi
sudo usermod -a -G cdrom,dialout,dip,input,netdev,plugdev,users,video kodi

I've enabled "kodi" user to run "sudo" command without typing in password (as it doesn't have one).

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi
sudo apt-get install alsa-utils cec-utils dbus-x11 xinit xserver-xorg-legacy

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-legacy

I've enabled anybody to use Xserver and added "needs_root_rights=yes" line to "/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config" file.

sudo systemctl enable kodi.service

Kodi doesn't start; it throws EGL initialization error:

15:36:12.109 T:547772674064 ERROR: failed to initialize egl display
15:36:12.109 T:547772674064 ERROR: Failed to find matching visual

I'm attaching Kodi and Xorg logs. Please help.


Works just fine with 2018-07-19 release. Xserver is now included so I just installed Kodi and CEC utilities (that do not work as of this time but it's a minor inconvenience).

Thank you!
