sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-bin
sudo apt-get upgrade

So ya its then something like.... Recapitulating.

Code:
sudo apt-add-repository -r -y ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-xvba
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-fernetmenta-master
sudo apt-get -y remove --purge xbmc xbmc-bin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get -y install xbmc xbmc-bin
sudo apt-get -y autoremove
sudo apt-get -y autoclean

See where the upgrade apt-get goes Preacher? Ya not after the install right?? That wasnt a Q

Maybe also add a command:
Code:
sudo dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge

This will clean unused Linux kernel headers, images and modules, which can take some space.

"sed" = stream editor. Can be used for doing a quick search/replace on text in a line, or cutting out lines. If you're doing a large amount of text parsing, you could combine "sed" and "awk".. or may as well learn perl.

I won't clog up this thread with more info - sure you can Read The Friendly Manpages - but if you want a few sed examples (or need it to do your change) then we'll take this to PM.

wow, he can google...

@Hack-Kid: No, that's not needed. I had it in, cause at 3.12 AMD needed a special xrandr command prior to starting xbmc cause of making the audio device available.

I changed the command in the howto already, cause i'ts not needed anymore.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

One suggestion RE: this script...why not aim to and plan to stick with 14.04 LTS...ONLY. Meaning give strong reference that other older and eventually newer releases won't be supported for quite some time...

Why make things more difficult supporting diff kernels, etc going forward when the next long-term-support version is only a few months away?
If I helped out pls give me a +

I will release a new version somewhere around the release of 14.04. I will incorporate as many of the fixes that have been suggested by users in this thread as possible. I will add an option to choose between xbmc repo’s. There will be no major changes in the scripts structure because I don't have time for a complete rewrite.

Hello, I have a problem with this setup. When I try to play series episodes from smb share xbmc crashes, all I see is a black screen and I have to go to TTY1 (Alt+Ctrl+F1), login and reboot the pc. The last lines of my crashlog are:

Any ideas?

Just finished the install using 13.04 and 2.6.1 script. Whenever I boot into Ubuntu I get the xbmc start screen, the nvidia splash screen and then just black screen. Any suggestions?

Edit: tried install again with newest uNiversI script. I seem to be getting the same thing as post 1156. Any advice?

Edit 2: got it up and running, turned out to be an issue with my wireless card causing not all of the packages to be downloaded.

On another note can anyone help with this: I have this setup on a laptop. When I plug in my output to TV the screen gets split between the two numbers, the system acts as though its one large screen.

I want to disable the laptop display and only output to the TV. Right now I only see half of xbmc on the TV.

Never mind, got help from Fritsch with Radeon OSS.

I'm in pretty deep shit here being that I know fuck-all about this. I managed to install it according to the script earlier this summer but had to do a reinstall yesterday. But I can't get hardware acceleration to work anymore.

Code:
sudo apt-add-repository -r -y ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-xvba
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:wsnipex/xbmc-fernetmenta-master
sudo apt-get -y remove --purge xbmc xbmc-bin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get -y install xbmc xbmc-bin
sudo apt-get -y autoremove
sudo apt-get -y autoclean

I have run this.
I have the E350 motherboard with Radeon 6310. In the settings page VDPAU is enabled but when pressing O while watching something it still only shows dc:ff-h264 which I've understood means hardware acc is not running.

I tried to start over from scratch with http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=174854 but couldn't install that distro, my keyboard stopped working when starting installation.

Anyone have the time or patience to point me in the right direction?

One pointer for you:

VDPAU = Nvidia hw acceleration
XVBA = ATI/AMD hw acceleration

XVBA is deprecated. Radeon(on >=HD5xxx) now supports VDPAU.
