Kodi for Linux

Installing Kodi on Ubuntu-based distributions

Use the command line terminal and enter the following commands. Follow the prompts as you would any other software installation.

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kodi

Upgrading

To update Kodi when a new version is released, just do a general system/package or use the following commands in the terminal (or via SSH):

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade / sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Uninstalling

If you need to remove and purge an application and finally removing/purging also the application configurations files, do so by using the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove kodi*
sudo apt-get purge kodi*

Then remove the settings folder to remove all settings and library data. This will not delete any videos or music, but just the settings and library data itself:

rm -r ~/.kodi/

or

rm -r ~/.xbmc/
