@Bc - Not sure why. Works fine without that package for multiple systems.

Could not get it working without xorg-server-utils package. Maybe it should be in dependencies?

Sorry, but I have no experience with Steam to know why that might be happening... this package is functionally no different from the old xbmc-standalone-service. It really just renamed the user xbmc->kodi and the homedir from /var/lib/xbmc->/var/lib/kodi.

Hi guys,

First of all, great work on this package ;).
I have a small issues after updating from the old XBMC to Kodi, I used a Steam Launcher addin and it now it is not working.
The plugin has two options, either kill Kodi and Lauch steam or leave Kodi open an just open steam over it. The first option causes Kodi to restart over steam, the second option Steam start correctly but it does not have keyboard focus, it is still on Kodi.
Do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!

Bump to v1.6-1

I think that's best left to the user. The wiki is inconsistent on this point anyway.

Can this also provide the systemd .socket file, as documented here?:

I just took that dep out all together. No big deal for now.
