My raspiNAS is based on a raspberry pi 2, with 1GB of ram and a 4core ARM processor, a more powerful board able to run a NAS and also a full HD media center. So in order to simplify my home setup and remove a raspberry I’ve decided to merge the KODI mediacenter (based on OSMC) into the raspiNAS board.
We have to create the group “input” if it doesn’t exist.
sudo addgroup --system input
Edit the file
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-input.rules
enter the following text and save it:
SUBSYSTEM==input, GROUP=input, MODE=0660 KERNEL==tty[0-9]*, GROUP=tty, MODE=0660
Create & edit the following file:
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/10-permissions.rules
enter this text and save it:
# input KERNEL=="mouse*|mice|event*", MODE="0660", GROUP="input" KERNEL=="ts[0-9]*|uinput", MODE="0660", GROUP="input" KERNEL==js[0-9]*, MODE=0660, GROUP=input # tty KERNEL==tty[0-9]*, MODE=0666 # vchiq SUBSYSTEM==vchiq, GROUP=video, MODE=0660
Run the following commands for user pi (if you haven’t changed your user name):
sudo usermod -a -G audio pi sudo usermod -a -G video pi sudo usermod -a -G input pi sudo usermod -a -G dialout pi sudo usermod -a -G plugdev pi sudo usermod -a -G tty pi
To play full HD video in Kodi, you have to set
in /boot/config.txt (or higher) and reboot the board.
Now install kodi with:
sudo apt-get install kodi
Edit /etc/default/kodi in order to start kodi at boot:
# Set this to 1 to enable startup ENABLED=1 # The user to run Kodi as USER=pi # Adjust niceness of Kodi (decrease for higher priority) NICE=-5
