I installed XBMC is was from Mint's Software Manager. It worked very well and all the tabs were on the home-page. After a week begain to recieve error messages saying some plug-ins weren't installed and most add-ons in my tab setting wouldn't work. I realized wthe XBMC version I had was out of date. I thought if I install "Frodo" most of my issues would be solved. When I downloaded Frodo I only see these tabs weather, pictures, programs, and system on the home page. No music, video, TV.....
Do I need to configure Frodo for those tabs to appear? I've looked around the web trying to find a direct, step-by-step, concise explanation on how XBMC is to be configured, no luck. Including their website... don't get me started. So, do I need to configure XBMC and if so, how do I do that? If this is an error or whatever then I'll just uninstall. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
All required basic functions are contained in the xbmc core package(s).
You should do the following: make sure you removed all xbmc packages, install the new one. Before launching xbmc, remove (or rename, if you have customizations) the ~/.xbmc folder.
Thanks you for your assistance. Something was up with Mint Maya and it was best for me to reinstall. At that the XBMC in Linux Mint Maya is out of date via the Package Manager, they still have Eden's. I had to download a ppa because even when I went through terminal apt-get update /apt-get install, the Eden's version still loaded up. Now I have the current Frodo's version and all tabs are there. The program is cool but its not all that user friendly, interms of setting it up. geez...
