I installed kodi on my bananian, a variation of debian, on banana pro via apt-get. I can't launch it tough. As the title states, in the error log file it says: ERROR: GLX Error: No Display found. Whole log file below. I tried googling it, but no luck there.

Also, I have a couple of questions that bother me and I couldn't really find the answer on the internet. Perhaps I didn't know how to word it, because this seems like some really simple stuff.
This bananian distro doesn't ship with any gui. When it boots, there is just plain shell. Should I be able to run a fullscreen app with no gui? (I installed xfce before trying to launch kodi, asking just because I don't know how exactly it works) How to force system to launch xfce, if I want it to? I also installed xorg, but same with this, not quite sure why I need it and what is the exact role of this tool.

You do need a GUI so that you can see the Kodi interface. Using Xfce will work. Sounds like you are having issues with figuring out how to run Xfce. I found this article on Xfce with Debian. Below is the section pertaining to running Xfce, but if you view the article, it will go through the installation process as well as information on what Xfce is. In basic terms, it is a desktop environment.

With a display manager

For GDM, KDM and LightDM choose xfce4-session.

For slim boot session in /etc/slim.conf:

login_cmd exec ck-launch-session /bin/bash -login /etc/X11/Xsession %session

You also can install xdm to login in start Xfce.

From the console

If you don't use a login manager but start Xfce from console, you need to take care of few stuff in order to get a complete Xfce session with full permission (mount, suspend/shutdown/hibernate etc.) This is because Debian now uses ?PolicyKit/ConsoleKit to manage policies for things like device and power management.

  • only use startx, without any argument
  • don't use a .xinitrc, add in file ~/.xsession:

    exec ck-launch-session startxfce4

This is because ?ConsoleKit ships an init script (/etc/X11/Xsession.d/90consolekit), but the /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ scripts are only executed if you don't use any .xinitrc. See startx (1) for more information.

Then you need to fine-tune your pam installation so ?ConsoleKit can be sure that your user is correctly authenticated. For that, you need to install libpam-ck-connector and put before pam_ck_connector.so in /etc/pam.d/common-session.

session   optional  pam_loginuid.so
  • I successfully managed to launch xfce and only then tried launching kodi – fulaphex Apr 5 '16 at 22:11
  • Did you ensure that you have the proper video drivers installed @Fulaphex? – David Apr 5 '16 at 22:15
  • Not quite sure how to check it. I am able to start some desktop environment, so kodi should work too? – fulaphex Apr 6 '16 at 7:22
  • There is even more stuff wrong. When I launch lxde or xfce, go back into shell mode with ctrl+alt+f1 and try to return to desktop environment with ctrl+alt+f7 screen just keeps blinking. – fulaphex Apr 6 '16 at 17:58
