1. Introduction
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A graphics-adapter with OpenGL acceleration is highly recommended.
24/32 bitdepth is required along with OpenGL.
Note to new Linux users.
All lines that are prefixed with the '$' character are commands, that need to be typed
into a terminal window / console (similar to the command prompt for Windows).
Note that the '$' character itself should NOT be typed as part of the command.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Getting the source code
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
.0 $ cd $HOME
.1 $ git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git kodi
Note: You can clone any specific branch.
.1 $ git clone -b <branch> git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git kodi
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Installing the required Ubuntu packages
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Two methods exist to install the required Ubuntu packages:
[NOTICE] For supported older Ubuntu versions, some packages might be outdated.
For those, you can either compile them manually, or use our backports
available from our official stable PPA:
http://launchpad.net/~team-xbmc/+archive/ppa
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
3a. Use a single command to get all build dependencies
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
[NOTICE] Supported on Ubuntu >= 11.10 (oneiric)
You can get all build dependencies used for building the packages on the PPA
Add the unstable PPA:
For <= 12.04 lts:
$ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
For >= 14.04 lts:
$ sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
$ sudo add-apt-repository -s ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
Add build-depends PPA:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-ppa-build-depends
Here is the magic command to get the build dependencies (used to compile the version on the PPA).
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get build-dep kodi
Optional: If you do not want Kodi to be installed via PPA, you can removed the PPAs again:
$ sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
$ sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-ppa-build-depends
Note: Do not use "aptitude" for the build-dep command. It doesn't resolve everything properly.
For developers and anyone else who compiles frequently it is recommended to use ccache
$ sudo apt-get install ccache
Tip: For those with multiple computers at home is to try out distcc
(fully unsupported from Kodi of course)
$ sudo apt-get install distcc
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
3b. Alternative: Manual dependency installation
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
For Ubuntu (all versions >= 7.04):
$ sudo apt-get install automake bison build-essential cmake curl cvs \
default-jre fp-compiler gawk gdc gettext git-core gperf libasound2-dev libass-dev \
libbz2-dev libcap-dev libcdio-dev libcurl3 \
libcurl4-openssl-dev libdbus-1-dev libfontconfig-dev libegl1-mesa-dev libfreetype6-dev \
libfribidi-dev libgif-dev libiso9660-dev libjpeg-dev liblzo2-dev \
libmicrohttpd-dev libmysqlclient-dev libnfs-dev \
libpcre3-dev libplist-dev libpng-dev libpulse-dev libsdl2-dev libsmbclient-dev \
libsqlite3-dev libssh-dev libssl-dev libtinyxml-dev libtool libudev-dev libusb-dev \
libva-dev libvdpau-dev libxml2-dev libxmu-dev libxrandr-dev \
libxrender-dev libxslt1-dev libxt-dev libyajl-dev mesa-utils nasm pmount python-dev \
python-imaging python-sqlite swig unzip uuid-dev yasm zip zlib1g-dev
For >= 10.10:
$ sudo apt-get install autopoint libltdl-dev
For >= 12.04 lts: Backport for Precise of libyajl2
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/xbmc-nightly
$ sudo apt-get install libyajl-dev
Note: Ubuntu Precise users also need a upgraded GCC, else compile will fail.
For >= 12.10:
$ sudo apt-get install libtag1-dev
On 8.10 and older versions, libcurl is outdated and thus Kodi will not compile properly.
In this case you will have to manually compile the latest version.
$ wget http://curl.sourceforge.net/download/curl-7.19.7.tar.gz
$ tar -xzf curl-7.19.7.tar.gz
$ cd curl-7.19.7
$ ./configure --disable-ipv6 --without-libidn --disable-ldap --prefix=/usr
$ make
$ sudo make install
For <= 12.04
Kodi needs a new version of taglib other than what is available at this time.
Use prepackaged from the Kodi build-depends PPA.
0. $ sudo apt-get install libtag1-dev
We also supply a Makefile in lib/taglib to make it easy to install into /usr/local.
1. $ sudo apt-get remove libtag1-dev
$ make -C lib/taglib
$ sudo make -C lib/taglib install
[NOTICE] crossguid / libcrossguid-dev all Linux distributions.
Kodi now requires crossguid which is not available in Ubuntu repositories at this time.
If build-deps PPA doesn't provide a pre-packaged version for your distribution, see (1.) below.
Use prepackaged from the Kodi build-depends PPA.
0. $ sudo apt-get install libcrossguid-dev
We also supply a Makefile in tools/depends/target/crossguid
to make it easy to install into /usr/local.
1. $ make -C tools/depends/target/crossguid PREFIX=/usr/local
Unless you are proficient with how Linux libraries and versions work, do not
try to provide it yourself, as you will likely mess up for other programs.

4. How to compile
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
See README.linux
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1. Test Suite
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
See README.linux
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Uninstalling
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Remove any PPA installed Kodi.
$ sudo apt-get remove kodi* xbmc*
See README.linux/Uninstalling for removing compiled versions of Kodi.
