@Hell-G: did you enable to need_root flag for Xorg?

Kodi-standalone has been working well for me, but I am having a problem when I try to exit it. Most of the time, it directly starts Kodi again and I end up at the home screen and not at the login screen. Sometimes it does exit properly, but unfortunately most of the time I try many times and always end up back at the Kodi home screen. Any one else seeing this problem? Any ideas how to debug this?

@elimpfor - That is how the current version is shipped.. you should not need to modify it:

% grep ExecStart /usr/lib/systemd/system/kodi.service
ExecStart=/usr/bin/xinit /usr/bin/kodi-standalone -- :0 -nolisten tcp vt7

EDIT: I have tested the out-of-the-box version with the nvidia-340xx drivers and the Intel drivers (separate machines) and both work just fine.

Just wanted to say that for nvidia driver, it is still required (at least in my case) to modify /etc/systemd/system/ to have:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/xinit /usr/bin/kodi-standalone

Or else X doesn't start.

@zofiel - I am not an expert, but removing it seems to have no ill-effects and solves problems for others.

so usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session si no longer necessary? To modify the kodi wiki.

Bump to v1.81-1
Changelog: Increased compatibility with new dbus package.

Replied in the bbs thread you linked.

Since DBUS update, Kodi standalone doesn't works properly. Press home button and kodi freezes.

Looking for a solution, I found this post:

Deleting /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session solved the issue
I don't know If this option is not longer necessary

Good catch, thank you.
