Get it!

This is a must-do update for anyone using the XBMC media center as it will probably fix your source of frustration. You can either visit the download page to get the latest source or package (if available for your distribution) and read how to install xbmc in the detailed How-to, or add the corresponding repository if you are using Ubuntu, by typing the following commands on a terminal:
