This is a script i made to install the medibuntu repository packages, the ubuntu restricted extras and xbmc on Ubuntu 11.10. I tested the script on the first beta version of 11.10.
This script does the same and uses the code as the script for Ubuntu 11.04. I made this script because there is no ppa for installing XBMC on 11.10 and the ppa for 11.04 is still being developed.
Besides installing XBMC it also installs the medibuntu repository packages and the ubuntu restricted extras.
Download the script and make the file executable. To do this open your downloads folder and select the file. Click with your right mouse button on the file and select Properties. Click on the Permissions tab and mark Allow executing file as program. When done click on the close button and open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following line:
When the script is done close your terminal window and to start XBMC press Alt+F2 and type: xbmc
