Linux Nix newbie switches home server from Win to Linux.
Always been a Windows user and never put much effort into learning to use linux until recently when I switched my windows home file server to Ubuntu server. Bit of a learning curve but finally have it working and WOW i can't believe the difference in network transfer speeds and all on the same hardware. Big Grin Also switched 2 of my Kodi pc's to Ubuntu as well.

Once issue I have remaining on my Kodi Ubuntu systems is that Kodi starts after the desktop environment loads which is the way I want it but I would like to know how to stop and start kodi via SSH if needed in the event of kodi crashing, freezing etc?
# normal stop:
kill $(pidof kodi.bin)

# force stop
kill -9 $(pidof kodi.bin)

start via ssh (only works if a running on desktop)
DISPLAY=:0 nohup kodi &
Thank you wsnipex that's just what i need.
