How to Install Kodi on Linux

You need to provide the content yourself or install an addon / plugin (see the end of this article for the guides of the most popular addons).

Below you can see how to install Kodi on the four most popular Linux distributions which are Ubuntu, Debian, Arch Linux and openSUSE. The installation requires using the terminal and typing just a few commands.
