Hello folks
Downloaded lubuntu 18.4.04 today, mainly because i wanted to get kodi 18.5 on an older laptop Kodi 18.5 seemingly runs faster of this OS, so typed in the commands
  1. sudo apt-get install software-properties-common.
  2. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa.
  3. sudo apt-get update.
  4. sudo apt-get install kodi.
  5. But everytime I downloaded the files (3 Times) instead of kodi leia 18.5 I get kodi matrix 19.alpha 1,The problem being there are no repos or addons for this Kodi upgrade yet, Any help would be appreciated (WOW Its A Big Learning curve)

Don't have a Lubuntu iso to try but do have a Xubuntu one and just tried in qemu and since they're both based off Ubuntu, I think you don't need to add that ppa but simply open a terminal and type
Code:
sudo apt-get install kodi
in any case you could check first with
Code:
apt policy kodi
and if it is available should appear. Of course, you might have already tried that and it isn't available in Lubuntu but if you didn't ... I suggest that you do.

Here some screenshots so you see for yourself





Hope this helps! :)

You added this PPA
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa.
and you probably didn't need to, try removing it with
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository --remove  ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
then run
Code:
sudo apt-get update
to update apt's database, once it's updated check with
Code:
apt policy kodi
and if it shows install it with
Code:
sudo apt-get install kodi
QEMU is a virtualization software to create and run virtual machines https://www.qemu.org/ a ppa is someone's custom repository for Ubuntu and derivatives https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas

it still downloaded kodi 19 can i download and in stal Xbuntu over Lubuntu without losing my Progs
What does
Code:
apt policy kodi
returns? If you install Xubuntu over Lubuntu you'll lost everything on that one cause it'll overwrite the whole disk.

No problem Freddy. You still have the unstable ppa enabled and that's why it keeps installing 19.

Code:
[email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Hit:2 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu bionic InRelease       
Hit:3 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates InRelease             
Hit:4 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly/ubuntu bionic InRelease 
Hit:5 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-backports InRelease           
Hit:6 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease             
Reading package lists... Done
You have to disable this one
Code:
Hit:4 http://ppa.launchpad.net/team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly/ubuntu bionic InRelease
Try removing it with
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:team-xbmc-nightly/ppa
once you've done that run
Code:
sudo apt-get update
again, try installing it and I think should install without problem. .

Glad you solved it Freedy. Remember to mark the thread as solved. You can do that by editing your first post and insert (SOLVED) in the title.

Hello Tolkem
just wanted you to know how i`m coping of getting around in the Linux OS,Since I last spoke to you i have tried a few OS`s ie:Mint ,Zoren,Linux Lite,and have ended up with which I think is the fastest and Most stable OS`s out there, Peppermint 10 , So why am I posting to you, is to thank you once again for giving me the basics of what Linux is all about, and with your help I am managing to navigate the linux OS now (Even tho`It`s still a huge learning curve)

Peppermint is quite a fine distro. @freddyhep really glad to know that you're having a good time with Linux. Take it easy as you learn your way around your system, don't get too anxious, enjoy Linux! I advice you to install virtualbox and create a couple of virtual machines, then you could install Peppermint or whatever distro you fancy to and try whatever it is you'd like to do or learn how to do it without messing with your real machine. I've learned a lot using VMs, it is one of my favourite hobbies :)
