Must Have XBMC Addons at the End of February 2013

There is a constant progress of new addon development for XBMC, so it’s important to stay in the know about which addons are the most popular or provide the easiest user experience, as depending on how much time the addon developer devotes to the coding, sometimes certain addons won’t always run as well as they used to. We figured that it would be a good time to end the month of February 2013 by giving everyone a quick guideline on which addons we think that everyone should be sure to have enabled on their XBMC setup.

MUST HAVE ADDONS AT THE END OF FEBRUARY 2013

1. 1Channel (Bstrdsmkr’s Repository)

Ubuntu wrongfully claims – No space left on device?!?! 1

Refer to link: http://superrb.com/blog/2011/10/25/ubuntu-no-space-left-on-device-is-it-a-lie-or-have-i-run-out-of-inodes

Probably the one of the log files is full and you need to delete it as in the following example:

rm -rf /var/log/sarg/*
rm -rf /var/log/unattended-upgrades/*
rm -rf /var/log/installer/*
rm -rf /var/log/dist-upgrade/*

consider deleting also the folowing logs:

rm -rf /var/log/syslog/*
rm -rf /var/log/samba/*

XRDP connection – session show blank desktop

When trying to connect to ubuntu after installing XRDP you experience a problem of connecting into a blank screen or empty desktop.

The problem could with with desktop manager that is allowed to be opened only once.

You might still have another desktop manager in your .xsession config.

cd /home/youruser
echo “gnome-session –session=ubuntu-2d” > .xsession
sudo /etc/init.d/xrdp restart

or

cd /home/youruser
echo “gnome-session –session=gnome-fallback” > .xsession
sudo /etc/init.d/xrdp restart

You can add the 2nd line (echo…) in /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh before calling . /etc/X11/Xsession and it will work even if the .xsession file is modified by something else.

Please make sure you install the unity-2d and/or fallback session first:

Command Line Instructions

sudo apt-get install unity-2d
sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
