Do you guys run kodi-wayland or kodi-x11 as standalone? I'm thinking of moving to Wayland as standalone.

@ghen - the issue we are running into here is complex for kodi-x11 due to systemd and/or my lack of mastery of all its myriad nuances. For one, we are starting xorg-server and then starting kodi within in one step which led to a bit of confusion and discussion to get it to both start and stop properly[1,2].

Beyond that, differences in systemctl stop kodi-x11 and systemctl reboot caused me to make the most recent change removing the PAMName= so I could get the entire thing under the system.slice and out of the user.slice[3].

I am open to suggestions to limit the kodi user to just the physical keyboard.

Thanks. Not sure it's a good idea to give kodi unrestricted access to all input devices though? (even if the user switches to another tty?)

@ghen - I think kodi may need to be in the input group now that the PAMName= directive is removed. EDIT: yep, I will fix and update. Thank you for the report.

I'm seeing the following in Xorg.log for all input devices, from power button to keyboard and mouse: (EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/input/event4 Permission denied.

Hmm, with this version, keyboard entry to kodi does not work anymore. Could it be that kodi no longer owns the tty?

@ghen - My bad, fixed in 1.117-2 thanks for pointing it out.

1.117-1 fails to build: install -Dm0644 "$srcdir/polkit.rules" "$pkgdir/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/10-kodi.rules". There is no file polkit.rules, should be 10-kodi.rules?

@graysky I can confirm v1.116 has corrected the issue. Thanks!

@fattoony - Thanks for reporting. v1.116 should fix it.
