Ubuntu PVR add-ons
|PVR||Ubuntu PVR add-ons|
PVR client add-ons are binary add-ons, but in Ubuntu they are not packaged with Kodi. All other official Kodi versions have these add-ons included with the default install. For Ubuntu, they must be installed through apt-get. In the future this will be something the user can manage from within the Kodi GUI, but for now they must be installed outside of Kodi.
If you don't already have the Team Kodi (team-xbmc) PPA added, then you will need to do so in order to install the PVR client add-ons (see here). If you're not sure, you probably already have it installed, as that is how you normally install Kodi in the first place.
- Quit Kodi if it is already running and open a terminal window
- Type in
sudo apt-get updateand enter your password when prompted
- Type in
sudo apt-get install PACKAGENAMEHEREbut replace PACKAGENAMEHERE with a package name from the table below.
sudo apt-get install kodi-pvr-argustv
The PVR client add-on should now be installed. If Kodi was already running, restart it to load the add-on.
