Exclamation  install xmbc on ubuntj 10.04 help !
Post: #1
I am running ubuntu linux 10.04 RC and it runs great except for one thing, I can't install XBMC. I go to the how to install page on the XBMC website and it does not work, how can I fix this? are the packages for XBMC to install on ubuntu 10.04 even out yet?

thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated

Open up a terminal and type in:

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc-svn/ppa

and hit Enter. Once that completes run the following:

Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xbmc

and that will install XBMC.

I guess you have to be little more specific on what instructions you are referring to. here is the installation guide link

Which is same exact thing that lthummus posted.

They seem to be working fine for me with 10.04 +9.11svn and Confluence skin. I did a new install a few days ago and imported 4000+ TV episodes just fine. There have been times when theTVDB was down (not unusual) but mostly it works.
