Ubuntu 18.04 Image

Unread postby cy1clown » Thu May 17, 2018 1:24 am

I am really enjoying the new Ubuntu 18.04 image. It seems quite a bit snappier than old version and very stable so far. I have two questions, One I don't see a software installer app, ie synaptic. Am I missing something, where do I look for installable app's? Second question, what are the odds that it will ever be possible to stream Netflix on this image? I have never found an acceptable way to do this on arm images of Linux. Still, overall I am happy with the progress so far.

Thanks
Jon

I believe most people are using "apt" on the command line to install additional software probably.
But sudo apt update && sudo apt install synaptic should be enough to have the Synaptic GUI software manager.

I have no idea how to use Netflix on Ubuntu since I'm not a Netflix user.
Is there any Kodi plugin for ARM Linux?

There is a Netflix Kodi add-on, I have never used it.

Yes I am aware of the addon for Kodi by asciidisco. It currently relies on using the nightlies of Kodi 18 and adding Libwidevine, Cryptdome python library. Is there a version of Libwidevine and Cryptdome python library available for this image? I am hoping that the process becomes simpler when Kodi 18 is officially released.

Thanks
