Visualisation in Jarvis
#16
Hi

In that case, could someone advise on how to install the visualisations manually from the PPA? (I am a bit of a command line newbie.)

I tried:

sudo install kodi-visualization-* and appended the destination path from the earlier message, but still couldn't get it to work.


Thanks!

Hi,

In the Kodi's ppa, there is only kodi-visualization-waveform for ubuntu 15.10 wily and
kodi-visualization-spectrum,
kodi-visualization-shadertoy
kodi-visualization-projectm
are only for 14.04 trusty and 15.04 vivid.

Do you know why ?

Thanks
Esver

Install the visualisations as you would normally, either through the terminal or synaptic.
After doing so, run the command I gave (assuming that you are running a 64-bit system)

Here is what worked for my Ubuntu 14.04 with Kodi 16.0 Jarvis and an ATI video card. note: correct visualization spelling for install....it differs in Kodi menus

sudo apt-get install kodi-visualization-*
cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/addons
sudo mv visualization.* /usr/lib/kodi/addons/

Then restart Kodi, or sudo reboot

You then have to select a Visualization as it defaults to none.
Shadertoy does not appear to work correctly on my system, the others were OK.

Yup! That worked for all of the visualizations for me, except for ShaderToy.

Does anyone know what would be the best way to debug ShaderToy? There are no errors in the debug log, no alerts on screen, just a flashing white and black screen more or less in sync with the music. Trying to get this working right.

vmstek, I cannot thank you enough for your helpful post. I have been trying for weeks to figure out, or get some help, on how to get ProjectM to work again. I have that back and a few new ones to boot!

You have truly made my day! Thanks again and thanks to the OP for a well-timed thread.

Yep!

Thanks so much.

I will be interested to try Shadertoy when it's working!

What in my case did the trick ;
Sudo apt-get install --reinstall kodi-visualizations-.*

I hope it will help someone else too Big Grin

Hello. I'm afraid none of this is working for me and it's getting me down a bit as the visualisations are a strong feature for me.

I've reinstalled, moved the files (I've got them on both locations now).

In kodi/system I can choose which visualisation that I want to use either from system/music/playback or system/addons/look and feel/visualisations but when I select 'use' it doesn't work.

Is there a different ppa I can use to get a linux version of kodi that has working visualisations ?

The fix for me:

Code:
wget https://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc/+archive/ubuntu/unstable/+files/kodi-visualization-projectm_1.0.17-1~wily_amd64.deb
apt-get -f install
mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/addons/visualization.projectm /usr/lib/kodi/addons/

And restart of kodi

Hello. Well tried that today - no change. Took a different approach and installed kodi into a laptop I have kubuntu installed. No 'visualisations' option available. Tried Sparky's fix which for some reason only installed the waveform visualisation - look and feel appeared with waveform installed within. Repeated this and no others installed. Wonder why. Examined the differences between my kubuntu and my kodibuntu installations and could see no discernable difference except that on kodibuntu all visualisations are installed but don't work and on kubuntu only waveform installs so still stuck up a gum tree for now.

Same here. I get Goom, ProjectM, ShaderToy, and the Wave thingie. Only Wave works, Shadertoy config is empty of options.

All looks great if you like being in the dark :-(

Given all the problems I have had with Jarvis (Linux), disappointing would be the most polite response.

Looks like shadertoy version 1.0.6 is getting installed. I can see and choose between the shadertoy presets, however each preset just flashes a white and black screen kinda in sync with the music as described above and Shadertoy config is empty of options. Anyone know how to fix?

Many thanks. It's given me something instead of a black screen.

I messed with this for a littel bit wonderig why my /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ was empty. I found everything in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/addons

Fixed very similarly as others mentioned, but in terminal I entered:

Code:
sudo apt-get install kodi-visualization-*
cd /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/addons
sudo mv visualization.* /usr/lib/kodi/addons/
