Sabayon HTPC

Post by archerbob » Thu Apr 09, 2020 2:46

Sabayon was suggested to me as a HTPC, but when I installed it I am presented with the gnome desktop, how do I switch to the media center desktop instead?

Is there a way to switch back and forth depending on what I wish to be doing?

I assume by media center, you mean kodi?

The simplest thing is just to make kodi autostart, full screen, in your gnome desktop.

I found a suggestion to have multiple desktops startup at once and then use Ctrl-Alt F7 - F12 to switch between doing stuff as a PC in the gnome desktop in F7 and have the media center running in F8, dunno how to do it yet
