    How to install XBMC in Ubuntu 10.10

    There is lots of confusing information on how to get XBMC installed. I took some of the information from http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title...rmic_or_higher and figured out how to make it work in Ubuntu 10.10:

    Start by running this command:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc

    Now click on System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager->Settings->Repositories->Other Software.

    Select the first ppa for team-xbmc, then click on "Edit..."

    Change the Distribution to "lucid". Click OK.

    Select the 2nd ppa for team-xbmc, and make the same the same change to "lucid".

    Reload the packages, and then install "xbmc" as well as "xbmc-standalone". If you want to use the command-line instead of Synaptic Package Manager to do this, here are the relevant commands:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-standalone

    You should now have XBMC in Applications->Sound & Video->XBMC Media Center.

    Did you have Synaptic Package Manager open when you typed that? I did and caused that error. Just close Synaptic and it works fine.
