[TESTING] Kodi 18 (Leia) builds for Raspberry Pi

Any idea if this issue (HEVC artefacts) can effect the Netflix plugin playback? Experiencing issue with black screen and artefacts there as well (sound is fine).

I’m having this issue with green artifacts too. When can we expect a fix?

When its stable… this is beta channel expect bugs cant demand stuff

if you want stable revert to stable channel.

Hello Everyone,

I followed all the steps above and now I’m getting continuously the Kodi sad face :frowning: and having SSH access to my Pi2.

I did a grab-logs -A and logs may be found on https://paste.osmc.tv/pejuheqami

From what I was able to understand there’s a fatal error loading default skin:

09:41:35.259 T:1799766768 WARNING: Repository add-on repository.xbmc.org uses plain HTTP for add-on downloads in path http://download.osmc.tv/kodi/addons/leia - this is insecure and will make your Kodi installation vulnerable to attacks if enabled!
09:41:35.315 T:1917964288   ERROR: Failed to load skin 'skin.osmc.v18alpha'
09:41:35.315 T:1917964288   FATAL: Default skin 'skin.osmc.v18alpha' could not be loaded! Terminating..

Can you guys help?

EDIT: Kinda fix this:

  1. Edit /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml
  2. Replace line <setting id="lookandfeel.skin default = “true”> skin.osmc.v18alpha
    with <setting id="lookandfeel.skin">skin.estuary</setting>

This was due to the skin being renamed which is now causing the sad face.
You will need to SSH in and run:

mv /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/skin.osmc.v18alpha /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/skin.osmc

Then start up mediacenter:

sudo systemctl start mediacenter

Thank you @gmc! This one did the trick. Now I have my old-used-to-it skin back :slight_smile:

I know this is a beta, don’t worry :wink: Just wondering what the status is as there are more users with this problem and @gmc indicated it needs fixing before it can turn stable.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Ran into the same issue with the skin.osmc did the following to get things to work.

Modified
/usr/share/kodi/system/settings/settings.xml line 3160 from

<default>skin.osmc.v18alpha</default> to <default>skin.osmc</default>
and the same in /usr/share/kodi/system/settings/settings.xml line 3172

Modified /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml
<setting id="lookandfeel.skin" default="true">skin.osmc.v18alpha</setting> to
<setting id="lookandfeel.skin" default="true">skin.osmc</setting>

Moving the directory did not seem to work

Note: There are still some issues with osmc.skin. I found the problem and will be pushing out a new build later today
