Kodipup is derived from xenialpup64.

It boots up immediately into Kodi 17.1

Includes support for the Vista MCE VRC-1100 remote.

I programed the sub-driver for the remote.

The VRC-1100 remote is a low cost remote with built-in mouse controls.

Might support other MCE remotes too.

Includes support for direct pasting in kodi using ctr-v.







New kodipup ver 2 is based on xienalpup64 -- fixing https problems.


Download links:
kodipup64-ver-2.iso (376 MB -- xenial64 base)

This was a nice surprise to see that somebody has finally done a kodi specific derivative. Downloaded and looking forward to trying it out in the next couple of days.

Not having the skills to write the code I have been waiting for this or a update to the current 16 version, I downloaded this and burned it to a USB after finding the save file, it bombs out on me. Has anyone else had this experience?

lassar,
very interesting!

Downloading it now.

Kodi is of particular interest to me right now, as I have just compiled it in OpenEmbedded, see my recent blog posts:

http://barryk.org/news/

I have never used kodi before. I understand that it doesn't work with a window manager (such as jwm)?
Could it be run in a window in jwm? -- or at least be able to switch between the two?

I was wondering about doing a build of the packages compiled in OpenEmbedded, with kodi as the media player. But it would have to play nice with jwm and normal windowed apps.

Anyway, I am looking forward to playing with your Kodipup!

Been doing some more research on kodi.

Kodi seems to have ssl problems in tahrpup64 6.05.

Using zenailpup, does not give me as many errors in the log.

So I think I will redo kodipup using zenialpup64 as my base.

It will run in a window. I accidentally discovered it. Hit "\" to switch between windowed and full screen modes.

EDIT: Lassar, this is really cool.

Interesting. I tried it but it kept hanging.
I get the feeling it could be better than Kodibuntu-I don't like having to log out and back in to get anywhere unlike Kodipup

Nice!

Ran as a livecd inside a virtualbox session. Kodi windowed ... playing a sneekylinux youtube ... sound and quality good.

On a UK keyboard it seems to be either the \ (immediately left of 'z') or # (immediately left and to the bottom of the ENTER) keys that window/full-screen toggles kodi ... depending upon which version of kodi you're running.

If you install a advanced-launcher addon ... I used a normal PC session to download a .zip file from here (can't speak for the security issues of installing that)

and then system, addons, install from zip ... install that addon within kodi

Then you can create launchers within kodi to launch programs/commands

I set one up as a 'linux' choice so now opening Programs, Advanced Launcher inside of kodi I have a selectable launcher to start up leafpad, which when selected opens up leafpad

Quicker and perhaps safer to just drop out of kodi and launch programs more directly ... but in some cases I guess being able to launch say the likes of skype from within kodi might be a better/easier choice ... perhaps a limited input device for instance (pointer and select only remote control).

We (as in a family i.e. mostly down to the kids), have one of these

along with one of these

as a second remote controller (in addition to the one that comes with the above) that has a nice touchpad and full keyboard to navigate (mouse) and type with from the armchair.

That's operational on the main TV (large screen, but not a smart TV).

Mostly I use a tower PC with a 32 inch TV as the monitor. The two kids each have their own desktop PC's as well in the living room (along with tons of other stuff such as Playstations ...etc in their bedrooms).

They're both Windoze desktop users, I'm the sole family Linux desktop user Sad
