Install Osmos on XBMCbuntu Eden

Osmos is a really fun and addictive indie game which I purchased as part of a Humble Bundle in 2011.  The following is a short guide to installing it on XBMCbuntu Eden, for instructions on installing it on XBMCLive Dharma check out my old guide here.

First you need to download the .deb file for Osmos, once you have the .deb file you need to copy it to the home folder of your XBMCLive installation.  For instructions on this follow my guide "Copy files to XBMC with Filezilla"

Then open a terminal or SSH into your XBMCbuntu box and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install libopenal1

sudo dpkg -i Osmos_1.6.1.deb

mkdir scripts

cd scripts


Now copy in the following text(it's ctrl + shift + v to paste at the terminal)

openbox &
killall -9 openbox

and save the file(ctrl + x and then y to confirm)

chmod +x

Now you need to use "Advanced Launcher" addon to create a shortcut to start Osmos from within XBMC.  Simply create a new launcher and point it as the file you created above(should be /home/xbmc/scripts/

and that's it, have fun!
