xbmc multimedia; almost nothing works


Installed xbmc from deb-multimedia of debian, and surprised, almost nothing works. The selection between pictures, movies, ...system is stable. You can add/edit/... directories, settings.

On the other hand about 99% of the plugins does not work. It is really sad.

Even youtube plugin, one get :
script failted

Radio plugin:
script failed.

That's the whole magic of Python that causes so much issues?

You should have coded that in g++ to make sure the things work.

How do you manage to get the radios and youtube working?

 dpkg -l | grep xbmc
ii  xbmc                                 10.0-0.5+1                         XBMC Media Center (full metapackage)
ii  xbmc-bin                             10.0-0.5+1                         XBMC Media Center (binary data package)
ii  xbmc-data                            10.0-0.5+1                         XBMC Media Center (arch-independent data package)
ii  xbmc-skin-confluence                 10.0-0.5+1                         XBMC Media Center (Confluence HD skin)

As it says here
In order to use this plugin you will need the latest stable Dharma 10.1 release of XBMC.

No idea about the radio plugin though
