@Fritsch: Great guide, works like a charm on a skylake build!

One question left. I would like to use kodi-standalone and disable the autostart of LXDE and want have kodi starting automatically. Can you guys tell me how to achieve this?

Thanks,
Christian

Just log out and change the session to kodi - done.

Hello, I want to try this in my Bay trail HTPC, but I'm a noob in linux.
So, if I want the EGL version, ¿In which step I need to begin? ¿Still I need to do the first 5 steps?
Or I start with this:

Install team-kodi build dependencies ppa and the nightly ppa to get my build correctly installed:
Code:
# don't forget the -s for the nightly
sudo apt-add-repository -s ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-ppa-build-depends
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get build-dep kodi

you don't need the build-depends ppa, nor do you need build-dep.
This is only required for compiling kodi yourself.

just do:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install kodi

But I still have to do the steps a, a2, b, c and d before that, right?

Just do all the steps wsnipex mentioned.

The ppa (xbmc-nightly) depends on which Kodi version you will install. As you can guess, if a ppa mentions "nightly" in the name, you will get the nightlies (Kodi 16 RC2). If you want the stable version (Kodi 15.2) you have to install another ppa. See here:

HOW-TO:Install_Kodi_for_Linux#Installing_Kodi_on_Ubuntu-based_distributions (wiki)

Inside that, all the ppas which are available and which will get you different versions of Kodi, are mentioned and it's explained how to install them. As you don't want to compile kodi from source, you don't need the build-deps.

Installed Lubuntu 15.10 and /.config/openbox/autostart does not work on my laptop, but it does work when I place autostart in /.config.lxsessions/autostart file.
Does anybody know why openbox method does not work? Where should I dig?

directory permissions of .config/openbox?

Solved. Was logging in to Lubuntu session, by default. Noticed Kodi software created xbmc.desktop and kodi.desktop sessions by default. What is the point to make Openbox autostart if desktop files already installed in xsessions folder?
