ubuntu ppa build of kodi-visualization-*
#1
Hi, I hope I post in the good forum. I very much enjoy kodi visualization but on my new build based on ubuntu Disco I realize not much work. So basically I have two question :

1- On the PPA page I see that there is only shadertoy but if you filter to cosmic, you then have projectm and spectrum. With bionic, artful, xenial and trusty all visualisation that got ported to debian are there. So what I did is download the latest available .deb and install it with dpkg. Unfortunately, they all crash or display nothing at all. Except for spectrum, but it's, let's say, not my favorite. Do you think what I did was an bad idea or I have another problem ? Could it be the skin ? I did try embuary and binge titan on leia 18.3, maybe I should try with estuary skin. I use amdgpu with an hd 6450 card, but then again, is this the good channel for os and hardware specific question ?

2- My second questions is about the kodi ppa repository. How does it work, do you think that over time more visualization will make it to disco ? This release is already 5 month old. Maybe they do not put newer release if older version are compatible (as dpkg didnt found dependency issues)? I really have no idea, I'm new to ubuntu and use it because it support well kodi and provide a solid htpc, but at some point I'm a bit lost.

Btw kudos to this thread I found it's very useful, maybe we should add missing visualization screenshot.
