    Took the plunge and managed to get a Pi3.

    Have installed latest version of RetroPie and wanted to use it as a mediacentre as well as gaming.

    Installed KODI from within RetroPie, it has put it among the emulators (which is nice) however when I run it nothing happens, it takes me back to the emulation screen.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue at all?

    Sounds like it didn’t properly install likely due to a network issue. Try reinstalling it. I had to try a couple times to get it to work, but I did get it working.

    Looked in the config file here is the results…

    Does sound like a corrupted install.

    How do you uninstall KODI?

    Have tried just installing again over the top and it doesn’t seem to do anything.

    Tried removing Lodi using the above command.

    Get error…

    Dpkg unrecoverable fatal error aborting.

    Files list file for package libtinyxml 12.6.2:armhf is missing final newline
    E: sub process /usr/bin/dpkg returned error code (2)

    Come across this issue before?

    Wiped the image, this is the 4th time I’ve done this and started again.

    Updated Retropie, copied the ROMs across, run the scraper, everything working ok.

    Now run the Kodi install and it refuses to run, the text scrolls to quick for me to read and it then goes back to the retro pi menu screen.

    This is starting to cheese me off now, everytime I run the install from fresh I get a different error/issue each time?

    Is this version of retropie properly compatible with the pi 3?

    Has anyone got kodi working under the pi 3?

    I’m getting to the point where I’m thinking it was a mistake buying the pi 3!

    (rant over).

    Not sure why you’d be having these issues. I just did a clean install of 3.6 on a Pi3 and installed Kodi fine using this script( https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/KODI ) to place it on the EmulationStation menu and not under Ports.

    I even followed this https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=832735#p832735 to update to Jarvis (Kodi 16) afterwards and it’s working.

    BTW you don’t need to use that script, kodi is now installed as its own system by default.

    Taalas added a directlaunch function in emulationstation that removes the need for a gamelist section altogether (now you only have to select it once from the main system carousel instead of twice) It will be the default for kodi with the next retropie release

    thanks for the tip on upgrading :)

    sounds like sdcard corruption or something to me (especially if dpkg is complaining). try another sdcard / check PSU and so on.

    Having it launch directly from the carousel will be very nice indeed!

    No worries about the tip. I was challenged by a friend to get Kodi 16 working on a Retropie setup due to him wanting to use some Jarvis specific addons. I’d just finished doing it and getting it working when I saw this thread and figured why not post it.

    Don’t anyone hold me responsible if you try to do it and blow things up! :P

    I’ve update the kodi wiki page with a working module to install kodi 16 based on your post. (experimental of course use at your own risk) it’s compiled with joypad support so you can make xml files for joypad configurations (I added a small template to the wiki too) I’m using it right now and it seems to be working.

    Awesome! I dunno if you checked the end of that thread or not, but there is an ARMv7 package as well: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=109088&sid=167298d8f47d7c69adf2dbb491f55bea&start=450

    Thanks for adding it to the experimental installs, will make it much easier for everyone to install!

    Very strange you’d have to do it that way, but glad to hear you got things working!

    Thank you herbfargus! This is working perfectly! I’ve been wanting the ability to navigate Kodi with my controller for a long time.

    This is my input for the iBuffalo SNES controller:

    <keymap>
      <global>
        <joystick name="USB,2-axis 8-button gamepad  "> <!-- iBuffalo SNES -->

          <button id="2">Back</button><!-- B -->

    	  <button id="4">ContextMenu</button><!-- Y -->
    	  <button id="5">Rewind</button><!-- L -->
    	  <button id="6">FastForward</button><!-- R -->
    	  <button id="7">Info</button><!-- SELECT -->

    I got this going on my Pi 3, but not on my 2. Can’t remember what I did in the first place to get it working.

    Also, how do I use modules like this:

    herbfargus,
    I’ve found that I can add configs for multiple controller types at once. I’ve tested with these two and both work. We could add many to cover the most common controller types, or maybe in the future have this automatically updated as controllers are registered in ES.

    Yes that would be ideal I would think. At the very least would be worth even just adding a default config to the installer with the ibuffallo, ps3, and Xbox 360 configs. Might be a bit down the road though as there are more pressing matters to attend to currently.

    While using a controller to navigate Kodi, out of habit I’ve found myself pressing SELECT+START to exit.
    So, I added a line below for each controller. Now pressing SELECT+START exits Kodi perfectly :)
