Simple Script To Install XBMC on Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal”

Here i s a simple script i made to install XBMC on Ubuntu 11.04. this script will create a file with the right distribution (maverick instead of natty) to install XBMC. When the file is added it will download and install XBMC on your system.


Download the script and make the file executable. To do this open your downloads folder and select the file. Click with your right mouse button on the file and select Properties. Click on the Permissions tab and mark Allow executing file as program. When done click on the close button and open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following line:

./Downloads/install-xbmc-on-ubuntu-11.04.sh

When the script is done close your terminal window and to start XBMC press Alt+F2 and type: xbmc

The script worked perfect for me.
But I’m having graphical issues in the menus very uncomfortable. I suspect this are the nouveau drivers.

SOLVED

I installed the nvidia drivers instead of nouveau and worked like a charm.
I do not recommend to use nouveau drivers with xbmc.

Thank you for the script.

What i don’t understood is actually how you are not really much more well-liked than you might be now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus considerably relating to this subject, produced me personally consider it from numerous varied angles. Its like women and men aren’t fascinated unless it’s one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always maintain it up!
