Kodi on Ubuntu: x11 or fbdev?

Unread post by circulosmeos » Sun Nov 10, 2019 7:41 am

I'm using Kodi following these instructions to use Kodi instead of mate desktop: viewtopic.php?t=22386
(basically: /usr/bin/xinit /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/kodi-standalone -- :0 -nolisten tcp vt7)

But I'm wondering if I should use kodi-fbdev instead (uninstalling mali-x11 and installing mali-fbdev):
which would be the difference?

If you don't need any desktop manager on X11, kodi-fbdev + mali-fbdev on the minimal image will be a much lighter solution.

well, I love to have both a computer and Kodi running at the same time, X11 included, that I can use via RDP (even if not accelerated at all).

What I'm wondering is if the mali-fbdev + kodi-fbdev may be more efficient/quick than mali-x11.

PS: I'm having issues with Kodi on 4k, and the only guess I have now is mali-x11/mali-fbdev (a clean coreelec runs smoothly!).

PS2: I'd have post this on "CoreELEC/LibreELEC - Kodi Project for C1/C2" subforum. Maybe an op can move this :?
