Kodi on stand alone mode

Hi guys, i have a intel nuc and i would like to run kodi on stand alone mode, that is possible? And how i can do it? On ubuntu was easy, was just enable auto login and choose kodi on the gdm and next boot start straight away kodi…
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

You can install kodi using flatpak https://flathub.org/apps/details/tv.kodi.Kodi,
you can automate this using systemd user units.

Hi miguel, olha eu ainda nao instalei tenho andado ocupado com uma maquina a instalar arch. Eu instalar o kodi tive a ver e percebi que usam snap ou flats lol podes so me enviar alguma documentação ou tutorial de como meter no login e entrar automaticamente sff?

If I’m parsing this correctly - no we don’t have documentation for this.

Because kodi is currently only available as a flatpak, it comes with the files that it comes with since you’re not getting it from clearlinux. As such it lacks fullscreen/desktop integration entirely, and the missing service files and desktop units to make this possible are missing.

This page has some good hints as you would go about doing this:

Note, because kodi is a flatpak, you’d have to substitute /usr/bin/kodi with something like /usr/bin/flatpak run tv.kodi.Kodi in the scripts referenced.
