There's no record of the add-on being run in that log.

This will help many people with sound issues I believe. It may have already been reported, but I thought I would post it.

Found a bug. Executing pre and post-steam.sh yields -bash: ./my_script: /bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

When editing .sh files on windows environment the line endings of the windows environment get carried into ubuntu and causes pre-steam.sh and post-steam.sh scripts to fail.

To fix this issue one could use dos2unix command line utility. dos2unix

dos2unix -k -o pre-steam.sh
dos2unix -k -o post-steam.sh

-- If you are uncomfortable with this. An alternative would be.

You can open up in sublime text editor go to view >> line endings >> Unix. Save the file.
You can open up the files in notepad ++ and go to Edit >> EOL Conversion >> Unix/OSX support. Save the file.



I was editing with notepad and transfering with WinSCP over ssh. You can see if you need to do this by running the pre-steam and post-steam.sh from ssh. If you get the error above you should probably do what I told you.

When following the instructions for Kodibuntu 14 i get an error while trying to copy the Openbox desktop

sudo cp /usr/share/xsessions/hidden/openbox.desktop /usr/share/xsessions/

It returns that the file does not exist. if i go look in the xsessions folder there is no hidden folder. There is an openbox.desktop.dis file as well as a kodi.desktop, xbmc.desktop and xbmcbuntu.desktop.

Do i just copy the openbox.desktop.dis file or why am i missing the hidden folder that should contain the openbox.desktop file?

Something must have changed... Copy or rename openbox.desktop.dis to openbox.desktop to /usr/share/xsessions/

Apart from the system update there's nothing in that how to that would affect overall system boot up - and if it was the system update that's out of my control. Boot from a live image (eg kodibuntu) install grub boot repair (might not ne the exact name, but google that term) and run that.
