edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for XBMCbuntu:

There's two big areas of "to do" for this page:

One is the namechange from XBMC to Kodi, and the current assumption is that XBMCbuntu will become something like KodiBuntu. Since the page still needs to make sense for existing XBMC installs, just write "XBMCbuntu/KodiBuntu" for the time being.

The other area is transitioning this entire page to a basic how-to on just getting XBMC on a dedicated box. This likely needs to mention OpenELEC and how KodiBuntu compares to it, why people would choose one or the other, etc. OpenELEC is considered by Team XBMC/Kodi to be an officially sanctioned version of XBMC/Kodi.


Specific to-do items
  • The start of the page should be expanded (but not be too long) with a basic no-nonesense explanation about what KodiBuntu is and why someone would want to use it. This needs to be written so that totally new users can understand this.
  • Basic usage needs to be covered, like switching between Kodi or the desktop mode. Things like installing drivers, using a web browser, configuring wifi via the GUI, should also be covered, but feel free to just use links for generic lubuntu advice if it applies.
  • A separate KodiBuntu-specific troubleshooting page should be created and a section on this page should be made to lead into and link to that troubleshooting page.
  • Anything more technical should be covered by more general Linux/Ubuntu related pages on the wiki.

re todo

That should be it, thought to be honest I would not wack specific instructions on this page and just a section if that and link it to page that has that information like the XBMCbuntu FAQ which covers all of it. All 3 pages how-to install Linux, XBMCbuntu FAQ and Team XBMC PPA pages should already have all the information required and more.

Im done here and if you dont like it, have at it, Im not gonna bother with this any more for the foreseeable future as it is done as far as I can see.

The only thing missing is switching to desktop mode, someone else can add that, I dont use XBMCbuntu anyway and have 0 interest also, noone seems to care otherwise anyway.
