How To: XBMC on Ubuntu 8.04

08 Oct

XBMC Media Center (formerly named “XBox Media Center”) is a free and open source cross-platform media-player and entertainment hub. Initially created for the first-generation Xbox game-console, the team behind XBMC development have recently ported the XBMC Media Center software to also run natively under Linux, Mac OS X (Leopard, Tiger, and Apple TV), and Microsoft Windows operating systems. There is also a bootable Live CD version referred to a “XBMC Live”

First, open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal):

  • sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and add the following repositories to it:

Save and close.

Then do:
  • sudo apt-get update
After it updates, install xbmc as follows:
  • sudo apt-get install xbmc
You can now start XBMC by going to Applications > Sound & Video > XBMC Media Center.
