@graysky - Most of the platform-specific builds of Kodi for ARM (such as kodi-rbp) already include a service file, so this package is unnecessary on ARM generally.

@khvalera - This package causes problems with Arch ARM... best to at least discourage those users away from it.

replace arch = ('x86_64' 'i686') with arch = ('any')

Sorry, it was my fault. xkbcomp does not know about de_nodeadkeys and does NOT load the layout if the variant is wrong - it just loads the default english layout. Using only "localectl set-x11-keymap de" or using the right variant will solve this issue.

I never tried changing the default layout... is there a setting at a deeper level in the system for this?

How do I set the keyboard laout? I used "localectl set-x11-keymap de pc105 de_nodeadkeys" to set it to german, but it is still english. I also switched over to the kodi user and displayed the current configuration with "DISPLAY=:0 setxkbmap -print -verbose 10". Everything says "de". Even the file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf" point to "de". But in kodi it's english. What else should I try?

@Hell-G - That's fine. I was mistaken, it's not display.service, it's display-manager.service which should be a symlink to whatever you're using, gdm in your case, lxdm in mine:

ls -lh /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 May 11 2016 /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service -> /usr/lib/systemd/system/lxdm.service

In any case, yeah, if you want to use the box for things other than kodi, this is probably not for you.

Thank you graysky for all the work you have put in and for all your replies here and in the forums! I do not have a display.service, I can only find gdm.service on my system.
Reading your last sentence, I think that "kodi-standalone-service" is not the right thing for me after all. I still want to be able to login as a different user and therefore, getting rid of my display manager is not what I want. I am sorry, that I did not understand this earlier and bothered you here.
