Enable CEC on Ubuntu 18.04

To have functional CEC you don't need to change anything in boot.ini, all you need to do is:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libcec
This could be added to the next image or noted in the wiki.

A little bonus that some may not know.

With CEC now enabled you can power the C2 down and when you switch to the HDMI port the C2 is connected the device will automatically power back up.

Very cool.
