This has only been tested on an intel hackintosh, and a very long time ago at that. Sorry, but you're own your own with working it out on a mac.

I get an error message saying "Couldn't retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected".

Is this URL not the correct one for adding the repo?

You need to download the zip file from that address and install it inside kodi

Hi, tried installing the Steam Add-On to Kodi 20.4 on a fresh Nobora machine. The installation works without issue but when I run the Add-On there is an error pop-up directing me to the kodi log file. However, Kodi does not create any logfile on this occasion. Do you have any idea what I can do?

Kodi always creates a log unless you manually disabled it somehow from advancedsettings.xml

see Debug Log for instructions

Ok I found the File Manager Method in your link, this gave me the following log: https://paste.kodi.tv/buwewozoxo.kodi

There is nothing in that log file about running the add-on. Also, make sure you have debug logging turned on - instructions are in the first post.

My bad, with Debug mode enabled I get the following log: https://paste.kodi.tv/rixesabora.kodi

Odd, I definetely have Xdotool installed. My terminal output for command xdotool:
Usage: xdotool <cmd> <args>
Available commands:
 getactivewindow
 getwindowfocus

Looks like your running kodi as a Flatpack? Might be related to the containerisation from being a Flatpack? Might be a setting that allows you to pass applications through to the Flatpack? Sorry I've got no experience running kodi as a Flatpack and usually avoid using them for reasons like this.

According to my research Nobora uses Wayland as default, which does not support xdotool. So To support Wayland the Add-On would have to utilize something like ydotool or other alternatives.

Sorry for double post, did not see your reply. Initially I used a Flatpack, but reinstalled properly afterwards since somewhere before in this thread someone had a problem with Flatpack. Did not work anyway, see my post above.

Thanks for the info - I was not aware that xdtool did not work with wayland.
I'll look into it when I get a chance, but I can't give you an ETA.
