I have a brand new machine with fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm trying to run Gotham 13.0 on it. I've already added the restricted multimedia codecs (just in case) to Ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
As well as Unrestricted LibavCodec
sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra
My graphics is AMD/ATI Tahiti (Radeon HD 7970) with a core i7.
Here's the XBMC crashlog: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=209365
Here's what's happening: I just download the appropriate PPA's etc. through the XBMC wiki.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xbmc
The first time I installed it on this machine, I went through installed Fusion and ran the Hub wizard Template/Setup. Everythings seems good, but when I select Al Jazeera, for example, I click "watch live", and then I get the "working" scroll in the bottom right for few seconds, and then the entire program force closes. The same happens with " The Daily Show" "Youtube" "UsTv Now" etc. I completly uninstalled XBMC
sudo apt-get purge xbmc xbmc-standalone
and started over. This time only installing one add on and trying it out. Still I get the same results. The music add-ons work though. I have this posted a few days on XBMC forums, and no replies yet. I'm not sure if this is an Ubuntu or XBMC issue ,at this point.
