Subject: migration issue with kodi-standalone
Once I've upgraded xbmc-standalone_4%3a13.2-dmo7 to kodi-standalone_5:14.0-
dmo1, the auto login does not work. .xsession-errors contains this message:
Xsession: X session started for domi at mercredi 31 décembre 2014, 18:00:08
Xsession: unable to launch "" X session --- "" not found; falling back to
Long story short, kdm is unable to start the session because
usr/share/xsessions/XBMC.desktop is no longer available in kodi-standalone.
kodi-standalone contains a lowercase version of this file:
Workaround is to run:
sudo ln -s kodi.desktop XBMC.desktop
Once this link is created, kodi starts without problem when kdm is restarted.
I think kodi-standalone should contain this link to avoid migration issue.
All the best
