[Solved] Wish to have KODI auto start on boot.
« on: October 07, 2017, 10:57:30 am »
Hello:

I have Peppermint 8 installed on an older PC which I wish to use as a KODI media center. KODI is installed and working properly.

I would like to have KODI auto-launch on startup - is there a way to do this?

Thank you,

Rob.

Sure, go to

Menu > Preferences > Default applications for LXSession

Choose the "Autostart" tab on the left.

In the text box under "Manually autostarted applications" (to the right of the [+Add] button) enter:-
Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/kodi
then click on the [+Add] button.

It should now look like this:-


If it does, Reboot to test.
