XBMC now available

The popular media player XBMC is now available for the Joggler on Ubuntu Maverick, Jolicloud, and Linux Mint 10. To install XBMC please make sure you have the latest image and run the following commands from a terminal.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install xbmc

You can then run it from a terminal by typing “xbmc” or load it from the normal Ubuntu/Linux Mint menus. On Jolicloud you can add it to “Local Apps” to run it from the main interface. Please note that the music visualisers do not currently work, so before playing music the visualiser needs to be set to “none” from within the xbmc settings.

XBMC will be included by default in the next update to the distributions.
