I feel so stupid for not reading the topic :| because in addition mixing lenny code for jessie brought me a lot of troubles that i hardly fixed them today with boot resque. I removed all the mistakes made. I am ready to post from start on the appropriate topic.

Sorry for the stupidity, great heat here: sun in head occasionally lol.

Create a file at ~/.xsession with the following content:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
if [ -z "${DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS-}" ] && type dbus-launch >/dev/null; then
  eval $(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)
fi
source /etc/profile
exec kodi


one thing i noticed is that i am unable to get to a console via alt-Fx. how can i add this?

It could be that Kodi is grabbing the keybind or something.

I'm not sure really.
